That Didn’t Take Long

If you were wondering how long it would take before the GOP started taking credit for the economic recovery, here’s your answer.

It took less than three weeks for the new Republican Congressional leadership to claim credit for an apparent economic upturn.

An aide to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Brian Patrick, emailed reporters this morning:

THERE ARE THE JOBS: Republicans Prevent Massive Tax Increase, Economy Begins to Improve….

This goes right along with them not having anything whatsoever to do with the economic collapse in 2008 because they didn’t even notice it until January 21, 2009.
