The Economy, StupidTankwoman's post about the declining stock market was on my mind this morning when I read this in the NY Times:
The nation’s employers eliminated tens of thousands of jobs in June for the sixth consecutive month in a steady chipping away of the work force that seems likely to leave the economy very weak through Election Day.Come November, people are going to be voting on basic pocketbook concerns - short of a terrorist attack here at home, it seems likely that economic security, rather than national security, may be the driving force in this election.
It's the economy - again, stupid.
