New Obama Talking Point: Romney's "Talking Down The Economy"

I just heard Obama use this in his Fairfax, VA rally. It's an old chestnut, used by Al Gore when Bush and Cheney suggested the economy was entering a recession in 2000 (it, um, was, and did).

I assume he'll use it as Gore did -- suggesting that even mentioning that the economy is awful makes the economy awful. He will therefore attempt to suggest that Romney is behaving unpatriotically, and as an economic sabateur, by simply noting the economy is in a deep lingering recession.

Just an FYI.

Oh, and the jackass crowed about how awesome a 7.8% unemployment rate is.
