    It does seem that those huge, salty sequester tears were shed for naught. The US has always come back from economic stumbles and this is no different. Look at the demand for the dollar!

    Good times are no fun cause there's not so much to bitch about. Yes, all politicians will now thump their chests and take credit for "the recovery". The recovery is in spite of them, not because of them.

    Obama's economy is a paper kitty cat, backed by massive amounts of printing.
    You prefer the housing bubble that Bush tried to boost the economy with? That worked real well.
    I guess 37 of those "jobs" bills must be to repeal Obamacare. LOL

    Republicans have failed ? They're not in power.

    Right now the FEDs medicine is worse than the disease. Your just too partisan or economically ignorant to realize it.

    I mean you started a thread bragging about a economy that is solely being held up with massive, unprecedented amounts of printed money.

    It's hilarious !!

    Of course Republicans are not in power...we are not in a recession. That's how you know.

    Haven't you been paying attention? He hates the sequester now ... but he won't let anyone change it.
    Yes yes yes, I know ... it's another example of Obama taking opposing positions on an issue so he, or his fanboys, can point to one of his statements to support whatever the hell he needs at the moment.
    Ya know, like what you did with the sequester.

    The President presented an alternative to the sequester that would have helped the economy and employment but it fell into the abyss otherwise known as the House.
    The sequester was not meant to be a thoughtful way to cut spending it was meant to be unpleasant enough to encourage Congress to make a deal on the cuts. Unpleasantness got a new definition when the tea's took over the House I guess.
    I'm sorry that you are upset that Obama was wrong and the sequester has caused no harm. The people who are fired, furlowed or laid off because of it feel differently of course. Not that you care a hoot.

    So Obama was not being thoughtful? ooooookay
    But he was given the opportunity to be more thoughtful about how he implemented the sequester and he said no.
    He was hoping folks would be harmed and get all riled up against Republicans.
    Remember that plan? Kids visiting the WH? Air traffic controllers? etc.

    Obama being wrong hasn't been a surprise to me or many others.
    We knew what we were getting long ago but his fanboys still hang on to their delusions.
