Economy Shrank in First Quarter as U.S. Trade Deficit Surged - Bloomberg Business
I wonder if conservatives will reiterate the belief that Obama has done nothing in regards to the economy?

Gross domestic product in the U.S. shrank at a 0.7 percent annualized rate, revised from a previously reported 0.2 percent gain, according to Commerce Department figures issued Friday in Washington.

By contrast, the report also showed incomes climbed, fueling the debate on whether GDP is being underestimated.
Or is it only the bad that's his fault?
