Gas prices drop to around $2 per gallon
Unemployment rate falls to the high fives.
If you listen to the media, the first two were because Barack Obama is president. The third is because eevviill Republican politicians are sucking the education system dry.
The first isn’t because of market forces overcoming obstacles set in front of them because of the Executive and Legislative branches. Nope. The Messiah.
The second isn’t because the labor market participation rate is smaller now than durign the last years of the Carter Administration. Nope. It was Obama’s golf swing.
And the third isn’t a combination of the first two along with multiple other forces causing the economy to get bogged down. It’s just greedy politicians from THAT party.
