    What makes you think it's "enough to worry the GOP"? Apparently, they're only releasing the result of their fuzzy math on that this morning and the markets aren't impressed..... what makes you think smoke and mirrors has the GOP worried? In actuality, an improved economy would be good for everyone and I don't think it's going to have much of an impact on the next election, anyway. Hillary isn't black, so there goes that high black turnout and 98 percent plus vote from the black community. Democrats will be hard pressed to field someone that can beat "anybody but Obama", no matter what the economy is like. Right now it's limping the right direction. I wish it was running with a full head of steam instead.

    The total US debt also declined by 521 million. Public debt increased by 20 billion and intra-gov debt decreased by 20 billion

    why is it so often that a con is only a stone's throw away from a bigoted statement? How do you feel about Latinos? They voted over 70% for Obama? Asians? 71%. And women? How do you feel about them (but especially young women)? Gays? Do you like any of them? Maybe you're one? Are you any of these and hate yourself for it?

    Talking points again ?

    There are 40 jobs bills from the House sitting in the Senate that will never see the light of day.

    When any demographic group is so overwhelmingly one-sided as to vote 98% plus for "their color", you know it's racism and that's not a bigoted remark. That's reality. Democrats won't get 98+ percent of the black vote again without another black candidate to pander to capitalize on the racism that is so rampant in the AA community.

    With unemployment still @ 7.6%, it should not be close to break even levels.
    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.

    Only in Liberal-ville.

    You would think these Libs would get tired of being lied to and manipulated, but apparently....no.
    I know this is hard for partisans to accept but... deficit ≠ debt.
