    I for one would be ecstatic if the economy improved but the odds seem rather slim..

    I don't think a .5% increase is anything to get thrilled about, but it is a hell of a lot better than a .5% decrease.

    On the other hand, I will wait for the corrections next month.

    And the news is not all good...

    Funny in the same report how it says:

    and:

    Those two statements seem almost contradictory to me.

    Almost only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and global thermonuclear war (which is really just hand grenades on a slightly larger scale).

    Even accepting your premise, which I find dubious given the size of TEA party, the EU and Far East are far more likely to set off a double dip and soon:

    The AAA guarantors of the EU bail out are beginning to demand collateral and lots of it to bail out the PIIGS so sovereign default is increasingly likely.

    In the Far East Japan and China are dealing with acute demographic problems as are all of the minor countries in the area.

    To claim that any American political movement is as big an economic threat as either of those two non-domestic threats is absurd.

    And the only reason you care if the economy get's better is so that you can use it to attack Republicans???

    Well, odds are the economy is not and will not get better... What then, bad news for Dems and Obama?

    This is known as "I know the OP is full of shit so lets give Obama credit for something *good* that has not actually yet happened now, so later when the OP is proven wrong we can trash the TP again!"

    YaY, RW is fucking retarded!

    I have never seen someone flip flop as much as you RW on the economy... One week it's growing by leaps and bounds and you're demanding people give credit to Obama, the next it's in freefall and you're demanding people blame the Tea Party... It's fuckin funny as shit to watch you and I ain't the only one laffin.

    Certainly no one is so morally bankrupt as to cheer poor economic news in the hope to realize partisan gain, resulting in the continued suffering of millions of Americans – say it ain’t so…
