    I'm so glad Romney's not in office to take credit for all of the economic good news we've had lately---you know he would have. Let's collectively roll our eyes when the republicans continue to fear monger.

    Fear monger? But but but, what about Benghazi? The republicans don't care about the economy, only about Benghazi because someone, at some point, changed the "talking points" and spoke to the media and may have misled someone and lord knows, when you mislead people, that's an impeachable offense, unless you mislead us into war, then everythings ok.

    Um look a bit underneath the surface here. This is promising news to be sure, but job growth is still anemic. If Romney had come to office this would have been spun as bad news and blamed on Romney.

    If there's extra money, will they save it for a rainy day, pay down the debt, refund the taxpayer, or just piss it away?

    Anger and bloodthirstiness is all the GOP has left. Time, history, and demographics are not on their side.
