FILE This Aug. 27, 2012 file photo shows Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus announces the display of the debt ticker during the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. You wouldn't know it from listening to the Republican National Convention, but the nation's economic picture seems to be slowly getting a little brighter. Not a lot, and not very fast. Yet there are some glimmers. But a steady drumbeat of gloom and doom is predictably being sounded at the GOP gathering in Tampa, Fla. _ even by GOP governors quick to tout economic improvements in their own states. (AP Photo/J.
