Skip to comments.NPR: 'Is Moderate Growth Good for the Economy?'
Posted on 04/27/2012 12:08:15 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
So when is lackluster economic growth a good thing? When it happens in the first quarter of an election year in which an incumbent Democrat president is attempting to win re-election and when the organization reporting this bad, or "good," news as they laughably attempt to categorize it is National Public Radio.
Here is the NPR comedy act performance by Scott Neuman in which he attempts to spin the lousy economy as a good thing:

Unemployment checks are ‘stimulus’.
So getting your foot run over by a car is better that being shot in the head. Thanks for working that out for us NPR. I just as soon not have either of those things happen.
Spinning that this economy is anything near healthy is first rate MSM water carrying for the Regime. Kudos NPR.
I’m slightly surprised. Normally NPR is in favor of negative growth. Except for NPR’s funding stream, of course.

In my case I found out that getting a broken finger was infinitely better than being run over by a car. On March 21 I was half trotting across the street when I hopped up on the center divider and immediately tumbled forward into the pavement of the street in front of me. After the initial shock of seeing my broken pinkie at an odd angle came the even bigger shock of seeing a car bearing down right at me as I was lying on the street. Fortunately he veered around me at the last moment.
I'm grateful to get out of it with a cast on my hand (it comes off in June) considering the alternative.

P.J. Is having trouble with Liberal Economics.
Its very simple. You must always subject your Economic indicators to the R/D Formula.
For instance if Unemployment is at 4.5% and the President is an "R" then "its the worst Economy in "X" number of years (Wherein "X" = the number of years that have passed since the end of the Great Depression.)
However if Unemployment is at say 8.3% but the President is a "D" then the Outlook for growth is on the Upswing and the President Saved or created "X" number of jobs by being so damn awesome. (Wherein "X" = whatever number the liberal talking heads pull out of their ass.)
You can plug this formula into any of the economic indicators like GDP or the Price of Gas or Milk. It doesn't matter, it all works out for the best.
This message brought to you by the Ministry of Truth. We work hard to alter the facts to fit the new reality!
Yes, and please forward the Fed’s outlook, and it ain’t moderate;
“However, the Fed is forecasting slower growth in 2013 and 2014.”
According to Rush the original headline read “Is a slow economy good.”etc. They changed it because they realized how stupid that sounded.
FWIW, Zillow economists forecast that the residential real estate market will bottom during 2013 after a further drop of about 4%.
They forecast a flat market from 2013 to 2016.
Now why isn't NPR trumpeting that news?
Anything really bad is still Bush's fault.
Let me guess, NPR might have to admit the Democrat Economic Plan hasn’t worked, and isn’t going to work.
I just walked by a CNN comparison of Reagan and Obama, and Reagan’s growth rate was 8.5% and Obie’s was 2.2% and they compared the re-election campaigsn as “similar”.
You can’t fix Commie.
NPR just left those parts out.
