The GOP says Obama ruined everything...

[Updated 12:03 a.m. Tuesday] And they're right: look at all the work confronting Paul Ryan, Louie Gohmert, Donald ("Big Birther") Trump, Scott Walker, Glenn Grothman and the rest of Talk Radio Nation as they take on the impossible: fixing the damage done to the country and its finances by the Kenyan Socialist-President-For-Life Barack Obama. 

Here's what's facing the righty bench as it starts to take back the country:

* A surging economy, reports The Washington Post today.
The U.S. economy grew at its fastest rate in more than a decade between the months of July through September, according to government data released Tuesday morning, marking the latest sign that a once-sluggish recovery is now running at full speed.
Note, however, that under Tea Party/GOP Gov. Scott Walker, Wisconsin's job growth rate lags the country's by about a third and the state ranks only 32nd nationally, the Journal Sentinel reports. So good start, Bucky: Molotov!

Plummeting gasoline prices: 
Gas prices continue to drop on a daily basis. In fact, the price of gas has fallen for 89 consecutive days.
* Double-trouble: Low interest rates and rates of inflation:
(Reuters) - U.S. consumer prices rose marginally in September, painting a weak inflation picture that should give the Federal Reserve ample room to keep interest rates low for a while.
Expanding demand for transit, and worse for railophobes - -  development along new urban train lines - - including just to our northwest in Minnesota, says CNN - - but thank goodness Walker and his legislative allies are already blocking Amtrak, light rail and streetcar plans, and all the resulting benefits, in Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin. That's so proactive, it's retro!

Millions more Americans now have health insurance. Moochers.

To all of which the GOP will work on by saying, 'Benghazi!'

Minnesota is working on a high speed rail link between Minneapolis and Duluth with the possibility of a station in Superior. Probably their way of thanking Ol' Scotty for giving them all that extra railroad cash
