Congress's approval rating is only 14 percent right now.
    We have seen what doing everything Obama wanted got us, 24 plus million unemployed and under employed, 4 trillion added to the debt, .4% and 1.3% GDP growth 2 1/2 years after taking office. Time for that change he called for in the campaign, a NEW President

    TheDemSocialist;1059708144]I dont know how much more clear it can get...
    ..."the Commerce Department on Thursday said gross domestic product rose at a 1.8% annual rate between January and March, slower than the 3.1% pace in the prior three months."






    News Release: Gross Domestic Product
    I think you should take a look at the study of your report: "Revised Estimates: 2003 through First Quarter 2011"
    The other study of MarketWatch is from Jan to March......[/QUOTE]

    You just cannot admit that you are wrong, there are preliminary and final numbers, April 28 was a preliminary number that was revised downward 1.8% GDP growth to .4% GDP. There are so many here that are misinformed and continue to buy the liberal rhetoric. 1.8% is terrible 2 years after the end of a recession but .4% is a disaster

    But you do realize that the no-new-revenue...EVER crowd is responsible for the only bill that could avert imminent disaster?

    Why do you continue to buy the lies of this Administration? Would you be this forgiving if it was Bush?

    I don't think anyone is claiming the numbers are anything but weak. As ever, however, you fail to make your point. Obama has not done enough to stimulate the economy. Conservatives would not have stimulated the economy at all. If their rhetoric is to be believed, they would have allowed the banking system to crumble, the auto industry to implode, and unemployment to skyrocket. I'll take the 1.8% GDP growth.

    The answer to that is in taking a few hours out in the middle of your day to watch the MSNBC line up..My guess is no, his rhetoric would be far different and closer to that of the disgraced Keith Olberman.
