60. I would think...
...that all those families who won't be having a Christmas this year, because they can't afford it, due to no work will be thinking very seriously about the economy come next years presidential election.

Bush* and his band of thugs can make this an issue for next year, but it isn't going to change the economy is it? It isn't going to bring jobs to the country is it?

If the rethugs focuss to much on this issue and not on the issue of the jobless rate in the U.S. then this will all turn around and bite them on the bum very hard.
