    We could reference the abundance of advertising on talk radio.

    Or we could use something you prefer; a news article.

    The Republican Party is so concerned about inflation that it’s considering a return to the gold standard. While there’s little evidence those fears are justified, they could shape a Romney administration’s approach to the Federal Reserve.

    The platform the party adopted yesterday at its national convention in Tampa, Florida, calls for a commission to investigate a possible “metallic basis for U.S. currency.”
    Don't be silly. You're just sayin' stuff and that's all good, but emoting like this isn't indicative of an honest position on anything.
    Are you in any position to challenge my point of view?

    Your #1 is too stupid to be worthy of a response. Your #2 is just your perception.
    No ****! That was already disclosed when i wrote the two... POV's.

    While the pinkos on the left are trying to sell sunshine, rainbows and lollipops, the right has been a lot more realistic about it and from your perspective, I'm sure that's a great big downer. Let's face it, for all the smoke the left has been trying to blow up everyone's arse about how great things are, unemployment is still way over 7 percent and the Fed is still bailing out the "economic growth" by printing money and by all SENSIBLE and RATIONAL accounts, the US Economic growth is weaker than expected and hoped for.
    Good economic news is good economic news, unless of course you are against the administration that is in office at that time. Your unrealistic expectation of a stronger recovery, given the situation, is on par with the Obama teams's estimation of the severity of the great recession. Completely ignorant.
    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.

    I gave you the correct figure - 93%, but you keep posting 98% ... Why is that? Gore got 92%. How do you explain that?

    and, yeah, the GOP will do much better with black voters next time -- they're endearing themselves to blacks with their voter suppression laws, as they are endearing themselves to women with their vaggie patrols in one state after another ... good luck with that ...
    Most figures are 98% plus. Even the Guardian had it at 95%. Breakdown of demographics reveals how black voters swept Obama into White House | Mail Online

    All irrelevant except to the point that democrats are going to lose some presidential votes without a black candidate in 2016. Get used to it... if it's a choice between two crackers, it won't be that lopsided.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Why the **** are voting demographics being discussed in a thread about U.S. fiscal policy?

    Because that's not the right number... also.... Voter analysis shows Obama would have lost in 2012 if black turnout had mirrored 2008 | Fox News

    As I mentioned, not only will blacks not vote so overwhelmingly democrat without a black democrat candidate, but they won't get out to vote nearly so much with a choice between two white folks.

    Somewhere back in the thread one of you lefties decided to make it about race AGAIN. Bottom line is that republicans aren't as "worried" as democrats should be with "anybody but Obama" as the candidate on the republican ticket in 2016.

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 economy is sluggish, they're losing the power of "the race card", Obamacare was a big failure and his presidency has been eaten up with incompetence and scandal. If that hurts and you want to try to make it all about race, go ahead.... it's been the fall back position you lefties have taken on everything, so it's to be expected.

    Surprise! Huge US Budget Surplus Shatters Record

    The U.S. government posted a budget surplus in June, the latest sign of rapidly improving public finances that could reduce the urgency in Congress to strike a deal to raise the nation's limit on borrowing.

    Rising tax revenues, public spending cuts and big payments to the Treasury from state-backed mortgage firms helped the government take in $117 billion more last month than it paid out, the U.S. Treasury said on Thursday.

    Analysts polled by Reuters had expected a smaller surplus of $39.5 billion.

    June's surplus was the largest for that month on record.
    One month is meaningless.
