Your July 31 editorial “Democrats bring it on” lauded Hillary Clinton for saying “we are clear-eyed about what the country is up against” but denounced Donald Trump for talking about what trouble the country is in.
What the Democrats can’t face is that they have been in charge for eight years and the country is in much worse shape now than we were eight years ago.
GDP growth is close to 1 percent. Tens of millions of people are not working. Household income is down. Our borders are wide open; crime is up. We are no longer respected in the world, and thanks to President Obama we are more racially divided than ever.
And they have no solutions to offer. Just more of the same failed policies. And they resent the Republicans for reminding everyone of what they already know.
The country is on the wrong track, and the Democrats are to blame.
