In 1992, the Democratic mantra was, “It’s the Economy, Stupid,” and the media, thoroughly behind Bill Clinton, wholeheartedly agreed. Not so much 20 years later when it’s the Romney campaign hammering home their message on the shaky Obama economy.
It appears Time magazine’s Michael Crowley is frustrated that Romney won’t talk about anything else but the economy. As Breitbart.com reported yesterday, his piece for Time Magazine on June 25th, frivolously entitled “One-Note Mitt: Is Romney Too Focused on The Economy?” exposes the liberal media complex’s attempt to change the narrative to issues they think are more favorable to President Obama.
After Crowley detailed the abysmal economic climate in 1980, he wrote that “Reagan’s campaign wasn’t singularly focused on Carter’s economic record.” The liberal media have attempted to use Reagan to attack Republicans — from the Left no less — numerous times already this campaign season, but this is particularly ridiculous.
