Gloomy numbers but hope like hell

It's blue state blue Monday all right. James Pethokoukis with the graph from the CBO.

More headlines: Housing shows stability but factory orders fall

But don't get excited about housing yet:

Foreclosure Mess Is Expected to Get Even Worse

Why Friday's Jobs Report Is Expected to Be So Gloomy

As somebody I know told me people are anxious or exhausted or both. Election day can't come too soon. Let's just hope like hell...
The only people who can recall a result so pro-Republican are nonagenarians, as nothing like this has happened since 1928. How many seats this would produce is very hard to say, but I’ll put it this way: Republicans picked up 52 seats in 1994 with a +6.7 win; a +10 win should produce more than 52 seats, perhaps many more.
...people make the right choice.

P.S. Some strain even in suburbia (Illinois):

Naperville median income dips below $100,000

Poverty rate rising in Downers Grove Township

Financially strapped Aurora seeks concessions from employees

But, way hey! the ChicagoBoyz on The Insurgency. And this: From Wikinomics to the Tea Party
