    So, 2% growth in the 3rd qtr. Which means for the year it's 1.7%. Which is less than 1.8% for last year, and both are less than 2.4% in 2010. So, we spent boodles of money and increased our debt by 5 trillion, and this is all we got to show for it?

    But...but...but. The Libs said Obama is the bestest President ever.
    He got Bin Laden and saved General Motors.
    Free birth control and he made all the gays happy.
    Isn't that enough? :D

    Scandals won't affect country's recovery...

    Opinion: Washington's Scandals Won't Stunt US Recovery
    May 16, 2013 - Scandal has visited the Obama administration, and thanks to the media narrative it's larger than the sum of its parts.

    Factor in inflation and it's worse than that.

    The more gov't intervenes, the worse the recovery is. This has been the biggest intervention ergo the worst recovery in history.
    Notice that all of Obama's early economic advisors are gone, replaced with also-rans and yes-men.

    With gas prices heading up again you might want to kiss the recovery goodbye if the stay up very darned long. Fragile recovery at best.

    I had no idea union thugs were called "bansters." Learn something new every day.
