FACT: Economists say Romney's ideas wouldn't fix the short-term crisis and could make things worse. OFA.BO/f6Y5mCThree and a half years into the Obama presidency and the country is still in a "short-term crisis"? Just exactly how long is "short"? If Obama is reelected, will candidate Joe Biden in 2016 be talking about the "mess we inherited back in 2008?"

This administration has vainly sought to portray America on the road to recovery ever since the lost Summer of Recovery in 2010. The Republicans should consider it a huge victory that the president has now explicitly acknowledged the crisis (ahem, short-term crisis) drags on.
