    Economy in U.S. Grows at 1.5% Rate

    I have to wonder if obama is still going to insist on raising taxes in an economy that is declining. The numbers were better than this when he said it would be dumb to raise taxes in times like this. Also this is yet another nail in his reelection bid. Every dark cloud has a silver lining.


    "Gross domestic product, the value of all goods and services produced, rose at a 1.5 percent annual rate after a revised 2 percent gain in the prior quarter, Commerce Department figures showed today in Washington. The median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News called for a 1.4 percent increase. Household purchases, which account for about 70 percent of the world’s largest economy, grew at the slowest pace in a year."

    We have to give Obama a second term so that he can maybe eventually have his first recovery summer.

    You guys just have no idea how bad it could have been without Obama. Like, really bad.

    Another thing is, obama has been out campaigning on how his plan has worked. That was weird enough with 2% growth but this new number is really making his stance a joke. The man is seriously delusional.

    No one has any idea how "bad" it would be without Obama. All we know now is the current state, which shows that Obama is not doing well.

    He's not delusional. He knows full well how much of a failure he has been. That is why he uses such bull**** as "it would have been worse". The mental midgets he is preaching to believe it.

    I know that. You know that. Obama knows that.

    obama ran for president telling us he could fix the economy and he gets a big fat F in that regard. 4 years, 3 strikes, batter up.

    What amazes me is that the guy according to the polls, is still in it... I guess we can thank the "hope & change" media for that.
