Washington Post – Asked repeatedly on Sunday whether the country is better off than it was four years ago, David Plouffe, a top adviser to President Obama, would not provide a direct yes or no answer.

    I don’t think any country in the world right now is better off than we were four years ago. We are still in a global economic crisis and it is going to take awhile and a lot of hard work to recover. It would go smoother and more quickly if the United States Congress would lay aside bitter partisan politics. That, and that alone has ground progress to almost a halt. It is thanks to the strong heart and will of our people that we have kept from going under.. That and the specific help from President Obama on some things. Give it a chance and hang on to the dream.
