McCain: "It's terrible" that Americans "feel better" about the economy.

So I'm flipping through the channels while drinking my coffee this morning and I see future presidential debate moderator Candy Crowley on CNN's State of the Union ask John McCain why Romney is behind. McCain says, and I quote:

"Americans probably feel better than they did before about jobs and the economy. It's terrible. It's sort of the Stockholm Syndrome."

Of course, Crowley did not react to the "terrible" part, she challenged him on the premise that Americans feel better, interrupting him with a reference to the "right track /wrong track" poll results that suggest most Americans don't think we're on the right track. She is such a piece of work.

If Americans feel we're on the wrong track it's because Republicans are blocking EVERY jobs bill, even ones just for returning veterans. But, Candy, Americans also recognize the economy has come back from the abyss, thanks to the Stimulus, and is now very slowly improving, despite Republican obstructionism. Once we get those teapublicans voted out of Congress in November, then we can get jobs bills passed and more Americans will feel we're on the right track. And Americans will feel even better about the economy. Much to the horror of John McCain and the Republicans.

After Complaint, Miss. Man Allowed to Change Name

A Mississippi man has taken his wife's last name after the ACLU complained he was told by state officials that he would need a court order to do so because it was not traditional.

Robert Everhart, 28, of Pascagoula, born Robert McCarthy, changed his last name on his driver's license Wednesday by using his marriage certificate, as many women do in taking their husband's last name.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi sent a letter to Mississippi Department of Public Safety Commissioner Albert Santa Cruz on Tuesday, saying the agency was violating state and federal law.

DPS spokesman Warren Strain said Tuesday that Everhart's request was unusual, and employees at driver's license stations were operating under an old practice. He said the employees were informed that men can use marriage certificates to change their names, just like women do.
