That article is garbage. Advocating -5% interest rates...just wow.
It wont be the first time, either. Franklin Roosevelt took office at the depths of the Great Depression and sparked growth by taking the country off the gold standard. It was a brilliant move that saved the American economy.
Ronald Reagan took office during a time of economic troubles and then benefited from very rapid interest-rate cuts once Paul Volcker had broken the back of inflation. The result was a rapid recovery from the deep 1982 recession and a halo effect for essentially unrelated conservative policy initiatives.
I guess this "journalist" forgot that Volcker jacked up interest rates prior to cutting them.
Mitt was listening to Rush Limbaugh and assumed the God of radio was spot on with his assumptions of saying that the polls that had been coming out were wrong and controlled by the liberal media and they were fluffing the numbers for Obama.
