NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Job growth is the hottest it's been in four years, a government report showed Friday, as the nation's employers added nearly a million jobs over the last three months.Whether you support Bush, Kerry, or someone else, this is just a simple statement of fact: if this trend continues until the election and Kerry doesn't have the economy to harp on, Bush will roll to reelection.
The only issue Kerry will have left is the Iraq war, and even the anti-war movement is heaving its last breaths. How do we know that? Because Al Gore has jumped on board in a big and ridiculous way. It's the absolute kiss of death. He has the perfect reverse-Midas touch. As Ann Coulter points out in her most recent column:
Gore always comes out swinging just as an issue is about to go south. He's the stereotypical white guy always clapping on the wrong beat. Gore switched from being a pro-defense Democrat to a lefty peacenik – just before the 9-11 attack. He grew a beard – just in time for an attack on the nation by fundamentalist Muslims. He endorsed Howard Dean – just as the orange-capped Deaniacs were punching themselves out. Gore even went out and got really fat – just before America officially gave up carbs. This guy is always leaping into the mosh pit at the precise moment the crowd parts. Mark my words: Now that good old Al has come lunging in, the anti-war movement is dead.I'm not an ardent supporter of President Bush, but while the polls don't show it right now, he could be looking at a landslide in November if present trends continue.
