    Lies! Obama just signed a great Debt Deal that will pull our economy out of the ditch in just a few short months.

    All economist agree that the debate itself was devistating to the economy and that this is the worse time to cut Government spending. The GOP is determined to slow the economy to a crawl.

    "Bad time to cut spending" huh? Well, when exactly IS a good time to cut spending? I never heard any "economist" say during the boom times that "this is a good time to cut spending". Hint: Politicians and their paid "economists" NEVER think it's a good time to cut spending as that lessens their control.

    Plus, you can't "talk down" an economy. But politicians can pass a Debt Deal that makes the DOW tank the very next day and cause precious metals to skyrocket.
