Impact of going over the cliff notwithstanding, the CBO's estimates about GDP are laughable. 0.8% is statistically 0, so they're saying it's nothing or pretty good. What is driving the 5% estimate? What's fundamentally changing in the economy that would push the economy that high? More regulations? Shutting down domestic gas and oil production? More spending on social programs? These are the same clowns who have bungled every estimate they've issued in the last several years. CBO was once considered credible, but it's increasingly become more political and less reliable in the last few years. They were wrong about the stimulus package(s) and BO Care, why are we supposed to believe anything they say now?

Still waiting for the Dirty Little Secret. Not exacty clear to me what the "Secret" was in this article - negative advertising? This was a nice, long winded, vapid essay with nothing new to share There must have been a 50 million of us screaming for Romney to respond in kind to Obama's attacks, but the more "reasonable" and "respectful" Republican pundits and establishment assured all of us who knew this to be a naiive tactic, that things were under control, and it wouldn't help Romney to be negative. It's interesting to me the same people who criticize democrats for timid foreign policy, for wanting to talk and negotiate with hostile regimes, approach a political campaign like democrats handle terrororists. Like wimps.Groundbreaking!
