The Republican presidential hopefuls aren't the only ones who have been flocking to states like Ohio and Michigan. President Obama has also been campaigning hard in the rust belt. Manufacturing jobs and the state of the economy are on everyone's mind.

Takeaway correspondent Todd Zwillich discusses how the state of the economy in Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin may determine the outcome of the next election.

So when the economy is bad it is the fault of Congress, Wall Street, Republicans, ect but when it is good thanks to hazy accounting gimmicks in an election year the entire credit goes to the President who spends and borrows with no serious budget?

Is it responsible for the media to encourage this "irrational exuberance" which will evaporate like clockwork next year and the following years if the CBO is to be believed?
