Chi Trib-LA Times story about the latest job report has this which I heard almost verbatim last night on Fox, from its liberal-woman-in-the-middle on the panel:
The political impact of the report likely will be muted because most voters already have strongly held views of where the economy stands.
It’s the meme that’s going around, apparently. For the lemmings.
On the other hand, lower in the Trib-LAT story, we find:
If the jobs report had come in stronger, it could have given an additional boost to Obama followingthe Democratic convention . . .
That’s interesting. No impact from bad news, but good could have had impact. This be something worth pursuing. Or pooh-pooing maybe.
