At the beginning of the year, most economists, analysts and talking heads on T.V. were talking about "the recovery" and were excited about improvements in jobs. I took the opposite line, saying repeatedly that there was "no recovery" and that the economy would go back into the doldrums in the late spring and summer, just as it had the previous two years. As for the improvement in jobs, I stated, "The small employment gains crowed about so much in November and December of the year just past are likely to unravel…." ( http://thegreatrecession.info/blog/2012-econo... )

Democrats have not managed to accomplish anything that would achieve real job growth because Republicans have tried to quash nearly every plan out there. They, also, have not managed to get their plans through congress, but they've hardly had any plans that amount to anything ... other than one pipeline. That's because they are willing to sacrifice American in order to reap political gains. They are HOPING the economy fails for the next few months, since incumbent presidents do not get re-elected in this country whenever the economy is bad. They are willing to see the nation's small window of opportunity for recovery prior to catastrophe narrow just out of hope that they can widen their own power base in this election.

Obama, on the other hand, has already had four years (three of which were not election years) and has not managed to accomplish ANYTHING that really has helped the economy.

I think it's time to vote out ALL incumbents as a way of saying: 1) WORK TOGETHER OR GET OUT! 2) STOP PUTTING POLITICS AHEAD OF THE SURVIVAL OF A NATION. 3) ALL OF YOUR BAILOUT IDEAS FALL SHORT, AND NONE OF YOU HAVE ANY VISION FOR BUILDING A NEW ECONOMY ON A MORE SUSTAINABLE FOUNDATION!

If there was EVER a vote-the-bums out year, this is it.
