A Republican would have been laughed out of office if he claimed that 7.9 percent unemployment and not enough job creation to keep up with the expanding labor force meant things were going in the right direction.
When Bush was president, the Washington Post called 5.4 percent unemployment a "jobless recovery." That's pretty much all you need to know.
- Obstruction is good: We've heard, endlessly, that things would be fine in Washington if Republicans simply stopped being such obstructionists.
So it was interesting to hear Democrat John Kerry, senior senator from Massachusetts and former presidential candidate, stumping for Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren in the final days of the campaign.
He urged voters to help her defeat Republican Sen. Scott Brown so she could help push President Obama's agenda. And, if "God forbid," the president didn't win re-election, she would be desperately needed to help "block" Romney's agenda.
Got that? If a Republican were elected president, it would be the solemn duty of Democrats to block his agenda.
So, Republicans should proudly obstruct Obama, more vigorously than they did in his first term. John Kerry has given you permission.
