U.S. Economy Posts Best Growth in 2 years

Quote
America finally got some good economic growth.
The U.S. economy expanded at a 2.9% annual rate from July through September compared with the same time a year ago -- the fastest economic growth in two years.
It was the last reading on economic growth before the election, and it came as welcome news: Growth was sluggish in the first half of the year, averaging just above 1%.
"This shows that the U.S. is roughly on track. It's a natural bounce back following a pretty underwhelming year so far," says Luke Bartholomew, fixed income investment manager at Aberdeen Asset Management.
While the economy gained momentum in the third quarter, growth this year comes in at 1.7% -- still slow compared with historical standards.

Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, released a statement calling the quarterly growth "modest." Economists took a brighter view: Barclays and the research firm High Frequency Economics called it solid.
Trump also said that economic growth over the past year has been "dismal." He has promised economic growth of 4% if he is elected president, but economists surveyed by CNNMoney say that is unrealistic.
For the third quarter, American shoppers continued to drive growth, while business spending was less of a drag. Consumer confidence hit a nine-year high in September, according to the Conference Board.
This should help Hillary!

1. This is not Hillary's doing; what has she to do with it?

2. She'll need the byproducts of that growth, so that she has funding for her Next-Gen influence-peddling campaign.

Making sure people don't die on the street, our kids get a education and we live in a first world country...Believe it or not the federal government plays a huge role in economics through our investment in infrastructure, science and tech.

Best growth in 2 years or even the entire Obama administration is like taking credit for being the world's tallest midget.

The successor to her historical influence-peddling campaign, eh? This time, vastly more successful and enriching.

2.9 GDP is a anemic but leave it to a left loon to think it's fantastic. Their bar is low

The Clintons have already engorged themselves to the point of "monetary obesity", peddling their influence to the Corporatists, the One Percent, and the Ruling Elites.

You blame Hillary for everything the past 8 years. Now you claim she had nothing to do with it.

You bozos claim Hillary will continue the Obama Presidency & now you run from it.

You people flip flop more than Trump.

State and local governments can tax accordingly to their state population and you're one size fit all nonsense is not the answer...

Also Hillary Clinton has nothing to do with any job growth, so it will not help her...

Finally, why not write about where the Job Growth is taking place and let see how many blue states are growing versus red states...

( Matthew will not answer that one at all! )

Nope.

I will not be voting for Trump.

I will probably be voting for Hillary.

A corrupt, sane, competent placeholder-presidency is vastly preferable to a corrupt, insane, incompetent placeholder presidency.

I have been saying this for months.

No flip-flopping about it.

It will help HRC no doubt.

It is possible, if one were to conjecture on behind the scenes machination of the Republicans, that they purposely closed the Congressional 'investigation' on HRC's email situation three months ago because they wanted to have Comey drop this October surprise at the end of October as a hail mary right before the election. Many thought it very strange that the Republicans closed that investigation a few months before the election when they could easily have kept it going to keep that issue in the headlines all the way through election day. But they didn't. They weren't getting any additional traction by keeping it open but it was a daily drain on HRC's polling. Likely they decided to shut it down and give the appearance that the investigation is over and we found nothing, only now to have Comey pop back up with "oh wait, looky over here this seems to be quite important and we're keeping the investigation going".

Unfortunately for Comey, the FBI, and Republicans, the FBI hadn't read through these new 'emails' and the announcement Friday has already been exposed as nothing more than a partisan hack job.

Conspiracy is the last refuge of fools especially borne of desperation.

2.9%? :lmao::lmao::lmao::lmao:
You can't be serious you stupid fuck? Talk about setting the bar low. Why don't you, right now, punch yourself in the face 25 times. I mean really, if Americans think this is the best America can do... it's obvious we have already have lost.
And Trump says 4%? Well that's a shitty ass number too...
With a debt of $225 trillion plus… there is no hope with unbelievably low growth numbers like these. LOL
