Default Re: Will it be a tragedy if Romney is elected and is given credit for a econmic recover

The funny thing is that on friday after the jobs report was released, I kept switching back and forth between MSNBC, FOX, and CNN to see how they would cover the news since it was very significant (240K added, lowest % in 4 years, all amid the sequester/fiscal cliff drama). Fox just seemed to briefly gloss over the report and even tried to turn it into a negative by saying that the #s did nothing but prove that the sequester was working and Obama was the president who cried wolf... even though this report obviously wouldn't show any affect, negative or positive, of the sequester because of the timing.

Hopefully the President can get the grand bargain he is working hard for and we have a long term solution for our fiscal situation. If that happens we could see a boom instead of a steady recovery. But judging by Paul Ryan still trying to repeal Obamacare, I think it will be an uphill climb to get the House Republicans to do anything besides waste everyone's time.
