First off, (found via An Economics Lesson even a Liberal can Understand.  Now economics isn’t my forte, but this guy’s making sense….and the line:

I’ll be damned before I start hiring people now, just in time to send the unemployment rate plunging so it re-elects the president next year.  In a second term, this guy’ll kill my business.

just makes the article.

And found in my reading the news today: Governor Cuomo wants to spend millions to improve NY’s image as a place to do business.  As in, 10 to 50 million dollars.  Honey, its not NY state’s IMAGE thats driving away the businesses, its the political and financial environment and even I know that.  And an advertising campaign isn’t going to change ANY of that.
