The media’s “Republicans seize and/or pounce” game remains strong, but today’s offering from Politico about the not-so-great economy took a slightly subtler approach:
Trouble ahead for Dems: A barrage of attacks over the economy https://t.co/Qf5IIcWLs9

If only the “attacks” would stop so the economy would get better! *Eye roll*

The trouble is the attacks and not the actual state of the economy? https://t.co/gPz6lQw1wC

The subhead is also special: “It’s not just Republicans who are assigning responsibility to the administration for the rocky economic recovery, polls show.”
“Assigning responsibility to the administration”? LOL. If the economy were tanking under Trump we think that would be phrased very differently.
Trouble ahead for Dems: their bungling of the economy is too disastrous for us to cover up anymore

A very subtle version of "Republicans pounce." See, it's not the actual economic problems that are concerning; it's attacks against Dems regarding economic problems. https://t.co/cNKrVFM7ZU

Judging from the Biden administration’s multiple crises and screw-ups, there’s going to be a record amount of “Republicans pounce” coming from the media in the next few months.
