For crying out loud.

We are now 17 trillion in debt, and getting more in debt by the day.

America is spending our nation into the poor house.

Bring back American jobs.

GOP run with this please. We need to support US hiring.

Outsourcing was very profitable, but the world is changing.

We cannot build up the country which is poised to be our primary competitor.

America must return industry to America.

you have to figure that the reason they so desperately want to take our guns away is that they know the crash is inevitable and they don’t want the mobs going after them with the proverbial pitchforks.
if the crash was not close, why wouldn’t he just say things are not great. they’re hoping the lie just keeps people off guard.

Nobody told him that middle class households are taking a monthly hit of hundreds of dollars all of a sudden for faux insurance, and won’t be into buying homes or durable goods anytime soon.

Hmmm... let’s see...

2010 was Recovery Summer
2011 was Recovery Summer II: Electric Boogaloo
2012 was Recovery Summer III: The Search for Spock
2013 was Recovery Summer IV: Tokyo Drift

But I’m sure Recovery Summer V will be a smashing success!

"Bernanke says economy poised for growth..."

And here is some related headlines:

Al Gore says "Man-Made Global Warming is Settled Science..."

George H.W. Bush says "Read My Lips, No New Taxes..."

Obama says "If You Like Your Plan You Can Keep Your Plan ..."

Yeah, poised. Like I’m poised to make babies with Scarlett Johannsen on a bed of Ben Franklins. We’re all freakin’ “poised”.

It’s always poised for growth - then government comes along and knocks it off its starting blocks.
