Goldman Forecast: Economy Sucking Ever Worse

James Pethokoukis helpfully tweets an abysmal new economic forecast from Goldman Sachs:

In Obamaland these may be alarm bells, but if the rest of Pethokoukis’s tweets are any indication, Republicans hear them as the bells of Christmas in July. Unfortunately, they understand the lessons of political science forecasting models all too well, so while it would be nice if conservatives would let us do something about this grim news instead of just standing cynically athwart the economy and yelling Stop, it’s not going to happen. After all, there’s an election coming up, and the worse off you are, the better off they are.

So suck it up, folks. There’s no relief in sight.
