As Tom Petty's song runs through my mind...

Listen – at least one representative in Congress gets it

This from Nolte at Breitbart

People can debate whether or not Romney made a diplomatic “gaffe” all they want, but what’s not debatable is that even outside of the world of horserace politics, our collapsing economy is a very serious matter which makes it, you know, newsworthy. The media, however, is showing little to no interest in the fact that over the last few economic quarters our GDP has collapsed from 4.1% to 1.5%.

GDP collapsing from 4.1% growth to 1.5% is free fall.

Three months of job growth under 100k when you need more than twice that number just to keep up with population growth is free fall. Home sales plummeting 8.4% is free fall. Consumer confidence dipping, business inventories increasing, manufacturing contracting, and more people getting disability than jobs, is free fall.

The only way this failed and failing and flailing president can win reelection is to toxify his opponent into someone the public will see as NOT an acceptable alternative to Obama — and this is exactly what the corrupt media is making sure happens by ignoring over 20 million people struggling in their under-employed or unemployed status while keeping its focus on all-things Mitt 24/7.

Even as the economy collapses ands real suffering increases, all the media can do is hysterically amplify every real and perceived mistake Romney makes  and when not doing that, focus intently on the very areas Obama wants the focus on: Romney’s wealth and the fact he’s not releasing more of his taxes than John McCain did.
