    6 straight months of 100,000+ jobs. First time since 2006. Economy steadily improving. Spells disaster for GOP candidates running on economy.

    Yep, pretty much. If this trend continues O will cruise to victory. The Dubya legacy of a thrashed economy was all they had left to use against him. You can be sure the GOP will be continuing their obstructionist tactics, and throwing everything they can think of at him for the next ten months.

    Which will, of course, just make them look like fools... more.

    I expect the "class warfare" bullshit will continue to raise it's ugly head. Might be best to hold off on the Bush tax cut thing til after re-election. After that, it'll be a cake walk.

    I think the obstructionism behavior will definitely be cranked up to a new frenzied high on the right. The goal is still: "Obama will be a one-term president" The campaign will be even uglier now.

    Can the Republicans actually raise their behavior in Congress any more? I imagine we've seen nothing yet.
