Deadlock appears to outperform stimulus

President Obama touts what he calls an accelerating pace of economic recovery.

And he issues an admonition"So I want to send a clear message to Congress: Do not slow down the recovery that we're on. Don't muck it up. Keep it moving in the right direction."
Wait. Think about this. 

For the past year, Congress has been pretty much deadlocked. The GOP holds the House. The Dems hold the Senate. There's little movement toward compromise on either side. And now? The president declares the pace of recovery is speeding up!

Deadlock has apparently done more to revive the economy than hundreds of billions in stimulus dollars.

Don't muck it up, Congress. Ditch any thought of passing the President's so-called jobs bill. Steer clear of any new stimulus talk. Congress, if you want to do something constructive, make some real cuts to the federal budget. Otherwise, get out of the way, and let the private sector return to its rightful role as the engine of our economy.
