Democrats Can’t Escape Thriving Economy
I had to chuckle when I got a Majority Matters press release entitled, DEMOCRATS CAN’T ESCAPE THRIVING ECONOMY, ROBUST JOB CREATION from Rep. John Boehner’s office. The money ‘graph:
Try as they might, Democrats can’t escape the fact that a booming economy created 211,000 new jobs last month – the same economy that has lowered unemployment to 4.7 percent (below the average of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s). And this economy isn’t just producing more jobs, it’s producing good-paying jobs, as highlighted by a recent Christian Science Monitor story. [emphases original]
Given the long running trend in polling numbers, the Democrats sure seem to have escaped just fine:
Or else I’d really hate to see how the Republicans would be doing if they weren’t propped up by these great job numbers.
