All the Blame, None of the Credit

In the latest Republican debate:

Romney's response to the first good economic report since the iPhone 3G was new is that Barack Obama can't take credit for it. "It's like the rooster taking responsibility for the sunrise." [via]

If the report was bad, do you think Romney would have blamed Obama for it? Apparently, any good news has nothing to do with Obama, but anything bad is, of course, his fault.

The sun would be rising much faster and burning much brighter if Republicans would stop torpedoing any attempts to provide the economy the additional help that it needs.
