The red pill or the blue pill?
So let's take a look at these pronouncements one by one if we can...Originally Posted by AdamT
First - "What we have is 24 straight months (or is it 25 now?) of jobs growth"
According to even the most sycophantic to Obama, Monthly job creation has to be maintained at the 150K rate according to the NYTimes article in June of 2011. And in an interesting take by the Business Insider we need far more than that to see real gains Preventing A Higher Unemployment Rate Will Take New More Jobs Than You Think - Business Insider
Now if you or Adam want to think that it is a success to manipulate numbers, and spew talking point pablum to keep the restless masses calm, then have at it, but it is BS!
Second - "strong corporate profits"
Corporations are holding on to many of what they would normally expend in expansion, and hiring due to uncertainty, and outright attack of business by this thug in the WH.
Third - "strong markets"
pfft! Yeah, markets propped up by fiat, digitized money that is far from real. Ask anyone in the know, and they will tell you that our stock market should be at about 8K right now if the truth were being told.
Fourth - "falling unemployment"
Yeah, do more to people dropping off the roles of those actively looking...You can't claim things are getting better when the workforce is shrinking due to the horrid conditions in finding a job.
Fifth - "rising consumer confidence"
What? Who are we kidding here? People are not buying anything they don't absolutely have to buy...This is a joke.
Sixth - "expanding manufacturing...."
Where? in solor panels that the government props up with our half Billion dollars right before they fail?
And lastly - "So I'd that things are clearly improving..."
Only in a liberal bubble can one claim that anything is improving!!! Gas priced at $4, Home energy bills through the roof, Grocery prices up 30%, America divided thanks to Barry, and his rhetoric, and all the while no real jobs. What a success story....NOT!
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

The fact that you think gas prices are a result of presidential polices is funny. I agree with you about the stock market, but thats what absorbing most of the inflation. Food prices up 30%? Not sure about that one. It could be due to general inflation but from what I've ready its more due to increased transpiration cost.
