I believe , given the current circumstances, that this low growth rate is the new norm and will be for a very long time.

These people are pathetic. The economic news is an obituary and they say "at least...." His staffers don't care; they are the highest paid in the history of this country. And, what they can't pay for, they steal, featherbed or use the power of the WH to misuse.

Were I Romney on January 21, I would order Federal Marshalls to arrest and detain any former staffer in the WH that is still there past the time of the Oath of Office. I would also bar the use of AF1 for Obama's return trip to Chicago.

I would, however, approve of the use of AF 1 to deposit Barack and Michelle where they belong -- Havana, Caracas, Beijing...or Leavenworth.

I spent a week in Wash DC and NoVa in April.

Prosperity there is a given.

It looks totally different than the Midwest.

I’ve counseled several young grads to try and get one of those 15,000 new IRS jobs for Obamacare.

I doubt you’ll see much of Baraq in Chitown any more than you saw the Clintons in Little Rock.

He’ll be a New Yawker.

That man has stained the office of the presidency enough. I wouldn’t allow him to do it any longer.

It is not about the 1.5% per se.

What was the initial estimate? 2.4, 2.2?

That 2Q GDP number had to be revised down repeatedly, to below 2.0, then 1.8, now it sits at 1.5, that was the reason nobody will trust whatever number they choose to put out.

Current economic numbers suck. You know it, I know it, they know it, and they know we know it.

“He’ll be a New Yawker.”

Maybe NY state; not the city. The Commissar is carry out a successful purge of NYC’s blacks; I don’t think they’ll be welcome there (he doesn’t share power, or the spotlight). They’d be “stop-and-frisked” daily until they left; even BJ Clinton hasn’t been seen at his “office” in Harlem in a while.

Now you know why the borders are open and amnesty works for him. The economy is growing, but it's not healthy.

The economy right now is analogous to trying to accelerate a car with the brakes on. The “brakes” in this case would be the entire failed Obama big-government socialist agenda.

Get rid of the Kenyan Kommie and his minions and the economy will take off.

Baraq will have to feed his massive ego and desire to be in the spotlight.

I’m thinking he’ll have a nightly 2 hr gig on PMSNBC.
Of course for the 60% of the time he’s playing golf or on vacation they can have Blowprah as a sub.

He can only be in the spotlight for carefully scripted events (which make for boring television); he has no “charisma”, just the stammering, confused babblings of an affirmative-action college freshman that just realized he’s had a sixth-grade education to prepare him for college.

I’ve seen the look, and within a month the student has dropped out - turns out they weren’t “all that”.

This is the best explanation of the problems with Congress.

They haven’t yet adjusted the figure which will be downward, as usual.

Nope. He return to Hawaii and teach constitutional law.

WHAT!?!? What are you laughing at?!?!

Well it’s likely the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Liebrary and Choom Gang Museum will have branches in Hawaii, Calif, and Chicago.
