Economists surveyed by the Wall Street Journal now say there is a one in three chance the economy will slip back into recession.
If that happens, I would say there are two requirements for a GOP nominee who can defeat Obama:
1. That the nominee be alive
2. That the nominee be awake at least four hours a day.
I don’t know how you get reelected with an economy in recession. The economists also predict about 2.5 percent growth through 2012, which means unemployment stays above 9 percent. Not much to run on either.
