    The recession that ended three years ago this summer has been followed by the feeblest economic recovery since the Great Depression. Since World War II, 10 U.S. recessions have been followed by a recovery that lasted at least three years. An Associated Press analysis shows that by just about any measure, the one that began in June 2009 is the weakest. The ugliness goes well beyond unemployment, which at 8.3 percent is the highest this long after a recession ended.

    Just to reiterate what everyone already knows.

    Libs have the deck stacked. While the US is at a economic weak point in history the radicals pounce with a neo-socialist agenda that calls for freaking windmills. Oil is poison according to the democrat senate majority leader and the president tells ignorant union educated Americans that a substitute for oil is right around the corner while he is selling America's future to oil producing countries.

    And the recovery will continue to be very weak at BEST.
    We have shipped too many jobs offshore for a consumer spending driven economy to prosper.

    the economy is going pretty much as I predicted in 2006 that it would.
