    Definitely a subpar figure considering the median projections. Seems the only positive news to speak of would be the positive revisions for both January and February's figures.

    Your'e seriously arguing that after 4 years, Obama isn't responsible for his policies and their disastrous effect on our economy ? Is that the position of the left wing now ? To act like 4 year olds ?

    Yea actually he a pretty big part in the collapse.
    As if a lawsuit centered around local lending practices caused the financial crisis! He wasn't even the primary attorney on the case!

    Which is technically two consecutive quarters of NO growth.

    He already said he has. But in reality its the responsibility of the President and both houses of Congress.

    I figured deficit hawks would support avoiding recessions, given the linear relationship between tax revenue and output growth.

    Would you remind me of what responsibility he has taken for the economy? I can't recall an example...
