    If the repubs regain the house and the econmy improves will they take credit for it?

    If the republicans regain the house and the economy improved dramatically in the short run --due to policies enacted by the democrats and the president -- will the republicans be as shallow as to take credit for it?

    I think so.

    For the economy to really improve for all, it will take a huge attitude change on both sides..
    This takes time.
    If the GOP does regain power, and this will be difficult, the economy will worsen due to their policy of obstruction..

    BIN, I'm actually seeing a major uptick in my area in the economy. I live on a major highway and have never seen so much commerce in several years. Maybe if the media would stop focusing on doom and gloom more employers would hire.

    A bad economy doesn't mean all wheels come to a screeching halt.

    Of course they will. It's not a Republican thing though, the Democrats would do the exact same thing. Politics is rife with officials blaming their mistakes on others and taking credit for the good things others did.

    In your hypothetical? Possibly.

    Are we suprised?

    If the republicans take over and the economy worsens due to the policies put in place by Democrats previously, will Democrats blame the republicans on it?

    My guess would be prossibly to that as well.

    That's politics. Its hillarious that you're acting like one side is somehow more above the frey than the others.

    Lets continue hypotheticals. If republicans pass new economic legislation and the economy improves, will Democrats give credit to the republicans or talk about the prosperity under Obama and laud the credit onto him? History tells us the latter.

    Who really gives a ****? You? You want to make sure Democrats get credit?

    I never did any such thing. You'll note my option "that's what politicians do" did not say republican politicians.

    Here is the question I find more intriguing, if Republicans take over and enact their own economic legislation and the economy worsens, will they take responsibility or claim it is Obama's fault?
