With the race for the 2012 White House already in full swing, finding a presidential candidate saying he or she can "fix" the economy is about as easy as finding an angry protestor near Wall Street.
This plan will cut the debt in half. That plan will bring the unemployment rate down to 4%. The plan over there involves the number nine a bunch of times and it promises to put a man on Mars before Christmas while creating economic prosperity not seen since the days of Martin Van Buren!
Are any of them telling the truth? Can a president really even "fix" the economy all by himself? Ladies and gents, I give you this. A tale of the tape of sorts.
