Most of the 12 swing states that will decide the election have economies that are out performing the national average. That's a big plus for Obama -- especially in places like Ohio where many good, Christian, middle-class workers have first hand experience with an Outsourcing Pioneer like MItt Romney.

In seven of those 12 states — Iowa, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin — the unemployment rate is below the June national average of 8.2 percent. In some, it is considerably less than the national average; the June rates in New Hampshire, Iowa and Virginia were below 6 percent. Even in Ohio, a state hit hard by the collapse of the manufacturing sector, the unemployment rate is a full percentage point below the U.S. average. Republicans note that the unemployment rate rose between May and June in Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire and Virginia, among other swing states.

And how many of those have GOP Governors? And how many have Freshman GOP Governors? Viriginia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania all have Freshmen GOP Governnors who took over from Democrats.

So in theory electing a GOP Gov to run your State will make it better, but in doing so hurt Romney's chances in those states.

Ironic, ain't it? Like rain on your wedding day.
