What last recession? We've had varying degrees of the same recession since 2008.
Another great talking point for the 0bama campaign ,,, surely they can spin this into a positive atribute to re-election .
Yeah, the usual one—”It could have been worse.”
WTF!! Green shoots, what happened to those green shoots!!!
But, but, but the economy’s “doing just fine”.
Don’t you people know we’ve added jobs?
No, the private sector is doing just fine it’s the gummit that needs more jobs. You know those teachers, police and firemen oh and the welfare workers, IRS agents and EPA regulators, we need more of them.
Pray for America
I’ve got a great idea.
Raise taxes so the prices will go up even higher and fewer people can afford to buy, that will help.
Obama is Fertilome Double Play for economic green shoots: kills them and his residue will keep on killing months after he's gone. And heaven forbid that you would ever reapply Obama's Jobs-b-gone.
When Republican's are in charge, it'll flip and good economic news will be 'unexpected'. 'If you don't hate the biased MSM, you're not paying attention.'
