1. That's it in a nutshell.

And also in the case of the 'negative", it's always some "anonymous source in the Obama administration" that supposedly validates the M$M assertion.

I read various articles yesterday from self-same M$M that during the debt ceiling debacles before the 2012 election, vehemently insisted that "the economy" is "always" tied to the President who is in office. And these shills insisted that no President would be re-elected with an unemployment rate "above 7.2%" and on and on.... Yet with the continued (slow) but "positive" movement forward of the economy, there is the sudden disconnect and "the economy" no longer gets tied to the President.
