    None of which contradicts what I wrote.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    The results speak for themselves. We avoided a catastrophic depression. The economy wasn't rocked by the collapse of 2/3 of its homegrown auto industry. GM and Chrysler and both profitable. Employment is growing. Manufacturing is growing. Consumer confidence is growing. The markets have recovered to 2008 levels. Yep ... a real disaster.
    Maybe it is the rose colored glasses that you are wearing.

    No, it actually doesn't contradict what I wrote. And I'll thank you to keep away from my rose-colored glasses.

    My point is the FED doesn't agree with the optimism of your quote.

    So yes, you are correct; it doesn't contradict your point. It just doesn't draw the same conclusion.

    The problem is, is that true believer supporters think he can do all of these things and gave up their objectivity long ago amid shouts of 'Yes we can! Yes we can!...

    I think the slogan you will be hearing until next Nov.is yes we did.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Yes we did what? Fool the same group of people twice? What is it about this guy that brainwashes so many people and creates such loyalty?

I could go on but it is a waste of time dealing with the kool-aid drinkers.
    Speaking of silly games....if the economy is not getting better how come the Republicans are frantically pushing social issues now instead of bad-mouthing the economy 24/7?. That seems to me the best indicator of how well those in charge of the GOP think we are doing at least. I guess your in the minority of the minority.
