Democrats Terrified That Economy Will Bounce Back Before the Election

For Democrats, the coronavirus was supposed to be a blessing in disguise. Not only can they sit back in the peanut gallery and blame Trump for every single person that dies from the disease, they can take advantage of the surprise corollary: A major economic recession. Trump’s dominating economy was the single-biggest edge the president had going into the 2020 election, and even Democrats were beginning to wonder if they could convince voters to pull the lever against steady 2-3% growth. But now…oh boy, now they can pretend as though both the pandemic and the recession are Trump’s fault.

Unless, of course, the economy bounces back before the election.

From Politico:

In early April, Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard, was speaking via Zoom to a large bipartisan group of top officials from both parties. The economy had just been shut down, unemployment was spiking, and some policymakers were predicting an era worse than the Great Depression. The economic carnage seemed likely to doom President Donald Trump’s chances at reelection.

Furman, tapped to give the opening presentation, looked into his screen of poorly lit boxes of frightened wonks and made a startling claim.

“We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country,” he said.

The former cabinet secretaries and Federal Reserve chairs in the Zoom boxes were confused, though some of the Republicans may have been newly relieved and some of the Democrats suddenly concerned.

“Everyone looked puzzled and thought I had misspoken,” Furman said in an interview. Instead of forecasting a prolonged depression-level economic catastrophe, Furman laid out a detailed case for why the months preceding the November election could offer Trump the chance to brag — truthfully — about the most explosive monthly employment numbers and GDP growth ever.

Since then, Furman has been contacting everyone he knows from the Clinton and Obama administrations as well as reaching out to those currently working with the Biden campaign. His numbers are putting panic into the Democratic ranks. Because if Trump and the Republican Senate can preside over the single greatest (and fastest) economic recovery in U.S. history, Joe Biden’s chances of winning in November shrink to almost nothing.

Asked about Furman’s analysis, White House economist Larry Kudlow said, “I totally agree. Q3 may be the single best GDP quarter since regular data. 2nd half super big growth, transitioning to 4% or more in 2021.”

Do not doubt for one second that Democrats will do everything they can to make sure those forecasts fail. If that means extending the shutdowns, so be it. If it means going on TV with reckless predictions about the disease, they’ll do it. If it means deliberately holding back the recovery with stalled bills and bad-faith legislation, they won’t hesitate.

The season of deception has only just begun.

  1. 2 things I keep on reading that make ZERO SENSE!! #1. THAT HOME BURGULARIES ARE UP. & #2. THAT A BAD ECONOMY WILL STOP/REDUCE TRUMPS CHANCES FOR REALECTION. BOTH IN FACT ARE JUST THE OPPOSITE! MSM MUST REALLY THINK WE ARE ALL STUPID! THE MAJORITY KNOWS TRUMP IS A WIZZ ON THE ECONOMY. IF IT IS BAD THEN ALL THE MORE REASON TO VOTE TRUMP! HOW CAN HOME BURGULARIES BE UP WHEN EVERYBODY IS AT HOME???

    • And us good niggas ain’t votin for Bidumbass. We’s votin Trump. Trump is da man, mafuckas. That Bidumbass cocksuckaa got lots of sheet for brains. Yay for us good niggas!!! And Ilhan Omar is a dirty cocksucker with shit for brains. Obamotherfucker eats shit.

    • Could they have meant HOME INVASIONS? With the owners in the house. I will almost bet that Nancy, Schiff, Nadler and their henchmen will make another impeachment attempt unless Bar. Durham start getting those promised indictments out to the criminals in the House of Representatives and elsewhere.

  2. HOW ANYONE CAN FORGET ALL THE POSITIVES THIS PRESIDENT HAS ACCOMPLISHED IS SIMPLY RIDICULOUS!
    HE CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VIRUS… WE KNOW WITH CERTAINTY CHINA WANTS WORLD CONTROL AND INFESTED186 COUNTRIES. TRUMP WITH THE HELP OF THE SENATE GET THE ECONOMY BACK ON TRACK…IT MAY TAKE LONGER. BUT HE WILL GITTER DONE!!
    ALL THE LIBERAL SOCIALIST DEMS HAVE ARE HATRED. LYING ..AND CORRUPTION .. THEY STILL ARE CLINGING TO A LOST CAUSE…H. CLINTON..THEY HAVE TRIED IMPEACHMENT. BUT THE TRUTH IS COMING OUT.. BIDEN WILL NEVER LAST FOR 4 YRS.. PELOSI SCHUMER. SCHIFF NADLER AND ALL THE REST ARE SEEING THEIR BOAT SINKING.. SO GOD BLESS AMERICA AND PRAY FOR OUR PRESIDENT.

  3. yeah the country seems to be in trouble with covid-19 and the stupid riots. and if it’s true then we all know there is only one man that can bring it back and that man is not the idiot Joe Biden, it’s the man currently sitting in the oval office president trump and because of the amazing job he did in his first 3 years is the reason this country hasn’t fallen apart, he made it strong and will do it again because not only that he knows how but because it’s what he does and cares about. as soon as we get rid of the democrat covid-19 will be gone as well. some one is behind all this rioting and it’s not dumb ass Floyd that got his ass killed for being stupid. some believe soros and the democrats are behind promoting it.
