It's About Living, Stupid!

I know I'm the money guy here at FOX News, but I don't think this election year will come down to money issues. No, it's not about the economy, stupid. I think it's about living, stupid.

I think it's about staying safe first, then maybe thinking about getting rich later. After all, it's hard to well, when you're dead!

It's about priorities.

Do you think any of the parents of all those kids killed at the hands of Chechen (search) terrorists in that Russian school are counting their rubles now? Or the families of victims of those two plane crashes in the same country at the hands of the same Chechen terrorists are thinking much about their jobs?

No, it's hard to delight in your riches, when those you want to share them with are dead.

Just try to talk about the economy to any of the 18 families in Israel (search) who lost sons and daughters and mothers and fathers in those twin bus bombings there and see how far you'd get.

And try telling the families of those 12 Nepalese (search) construction workers brutally executed — including one beheaded — that terror doesn't strike those who refuse to mess with terrorists.

Terrorists don't care who you are, or where you come from, with whom you're aligned, or not aligned.

Terrorists have killed rich and poor, those who represent countries fighting terrorists and many more who want nothing to do with terrorists.

It doesn't matter. Neutrality doesn't protect them. Wealth doesn't save them.

They are all targets. We are all targets.

It's hard to think about making money when you're burying a son or a daughter, a mom or a dad.

No, saying “it's the economy, stupid” is like shouting to the world that you really are stupid.

I'm happy more of the jobless are finding jobs. I'd just be a lot happier if more of the terrorists were losing theirs.
