Bill Clinton is out pushing the message that Mitt Romney is planning to steal the credit for Obama’s economic recovery. And I confess I’ve worried about this myself. All signs point to positive signs in the economy and a real recovery underway now which will likely bear fruit in the early months of next year. If Romney manages to slip through, he’ll take credit for that and be further empowered in his rightwing agenda by a buoyant economy. It’s a frightening and infuriating thought to consider on many levels.
