    GDP numbers released this AM. Growth fell to 1.3% annual for the first 6 months. January to March, originally estimated at an already weak 1.3% were revised down to 0.4%, which is essentiallly no growth at all.
    This was supposed to be the recovery. Compared to past recoveries this is the weakest on record. It is a double dip recession coming, with increasing news of layoffs.
    Obamanomics has failed, utterly and completely. Anyone who even tries to defend this record reveals himself as a kook or a moron.

    We're a nation in decline. There's nothing substantial that any president can do to change that.

    What is important to see here is that economic data is TOTALLY worthless when it is first given.
    When the report came out last April that GDP grew by 2% in the first quarter - everyone lauded and joined hands and sang songs. "See the stimulus is working!!!"
    Until now.
    When the real data comes out and shows absolutely no growth whatsoever.

    People said the same under Carter. Reagan proved them wrong.

    Every move this President makes drives us deeper in the hole. There is an effect to his policies, damage.
    Have enough change yet?

    The debt ceiling issue was a live issue for the first 3 months of the year?

    You are utterly pitiable.
