    Unfortunately, there is no such thing as bad news for the Democrats. If this country falls into financial ruin, the White House and liberal media will say it was because of Bush's policies and Bush's tax cuts, not because of Obama's failed policies. On the other hand, if there is good economic news (such as a lowered deficit), they will say it is because of Obama's wonderful policies, not because of the sequester or any Republican successes.

    This likely is caused by the sequester, but the liberal media will not admit it.

    While this is very positive news, Paul Krugman of the NYT must be disappointed.
