How did Bush sneak back into Washington?
Bloomberg: Business activity contracts for first time since 2009.

Yes, but it’s already been factored in, so buy, buy, buy! Heh heh.
Gee: Obama was caught by surprise, discovering that the recession he inherited was deeper than he thought. He was caught by surprise that the shovel-ready jobs in the $850 billion stimulus weren’t quite ready enough to carry out. He was caught by surprise that Islamist terrorists attacked our diplomats in Benghazi. He was caught by surprise that Assad in Syria proved to be a violent determined tyrant who wouldn’t go away because liberals don’t like him. He is caught by surprise that economic activity is weak and getting weaker.
Remind us: is this the caught-by-surprise presidency, or the it’s-not-my-fault presidency?
We’ll be voting against incompetence.
Remember the mainstream press’ attitude in a Republican presidency? Under Bush, the press saw its job as testing, probing, questioning the President at every opportunity. This can be a healthy function.
Yesterday, an important story was whether our State Department (which reports to the President) was properly prepared when it stationed diplomats in Benghazi, and whether the security arrangements were carried out competently. Le’t remember, 4 Americans died. Fox news on-line actually covered this story, raising worthwhile questions. Just to compare, I checked out CNN.com. Its main story had to do with some homecoming queen somewhere. I searched but couldn’t find the Benghazi story. The press is so craven, biased and devoted to this Democrat President that they have simply abandoned the questioning/probing activity. It’s subtle, but this is worth several million votes – more than enough to decide the election, as Tim Groseclose has documented.
