We should all be thankful that we live in an age in which such expert economists as Mitch McConnell can lead the nation into a new era of economic prosperity for all.

We once thought that such recognition should go to Mitt Romney, who told us as a presidential candidate that although the economy was getting better, President Obama made it worse.

But the owlish new senate majority leader has out-reasoned Mitt with his profound explanation of economic progress – and you can thank the Republicans on Capitol Hill for that.

Here’s what he told the Washington Post: “We’re finally starting to see some economic data that can provide a glimmer of hope. The uptick appears to coincide with the biggest political change of the Obama Administration’s long tenure in Washington: The expectation of a new Republican Congress.”

Until now we had concluded that President Obama’s initiatives – including the stimulus, bailouts and other White House actions – all opposed by the GOP leadership – had turned the Bush recession around. But we’re not an expert economist and only know what we read. I’m feeling better already.
