[P]olitical scientists understand that a huge portion of the analysis of news events that appears in the media is total bullshit.
Clinton said it best: "It's the economy, stupid." If unemployment were 5%, Obama would be a masterful communicator and tactician. Pew graphed out disapproval vs unemployment. The results speak for themselves. Every day pundits go on TV and blather on about process-related hokum, and its 90% bullshit.
