Good news!

The economy added more than 2.95 million jobs last year, the most since 1999. (Can you imagine how good things would be if Mitt Romney had been elected president in 2012?)

Recently, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said:

After so many years of sluggish growth, we're finally starting to see some economic data that can provide a glimmer of hope. The uptick appears to coincide with the biggest political change of the Obama Administration’s long tenure in Washington: the expectation of a new Republican Congress.

(Actually, Americans must have been anticipating the Republican takeover for a long time -- since early 2009 -- because that's when the current recovery began.)

But no matter, because everyone knows it isn't McConnell who's responsible for the latest good news anyway. Who is?
