    You fail to make that point then; but I welcome any coherent arguments that suggest that I am wrong when I say that having a National Debt of $12 trillion and climbing, a deficit of $1.4 trillion and climbing and spending almost $500 million per day on interest on the debt is a BAD thing.

    Good luck with that, but frankly based on your history here at DP, I wont hold my breath for anything that makes sense from you.

    Carry on.

    I hope you are wrong, but suspect that there is definitely more storm coming. This report is good news, but it is hardly proof, or even evidence, that we are out of the worst of things. Unemployment, which is the top measure of how well the people are doing, is going to stay bad for awhile yet.

    That is the logical follow-on.

    The Obamanistas have repeatedly tried to argume that hoping The Obama fails [to implement His policies] = hoping that the US fails.

    I am convinced that the only way to keep the US from failing is for The Obama to fail.

    Obama's dilemma is that Wall Street, and corporate profits, jump when his policies fail. The more lame duck his agenda looks, the more confidence investors have in re-entering the market.

    Meanwhile, Main Street doesn't budge. Corporations aren't about to take the risks associated with growth - which means hiring people - while this crew is in office.

    The reason corporations are showing profits is that they eliminated lots of overhead and learned to operate in the climate their in. That's what made them brilliant in the first place.

    Obama's getting cornered. Wall Street will boom, while Main Street will bust further.

    Actually, it's how the "libruls" are reporting it that begets the hypocrisy.

    Identical Unemployment Numbers ‘Good’ News for Obama, But ‘All’ Bad under Reagan.

    Executive Summary

    A study from the Business & Media Institute

    Unemployment under President Barack Obama is at a 26-year-high. The last time the economy had 9.7 percent or higher unemployment was under President Ronald Reagan. But despite similar periods of rising unemployment, Obama and Reagan received almost exactly opposite treatment from the network news media.
    Under Obama reporters have gone to great lengths to spin rising unemployment by finding “positive trends” in the job losses, even focusing on as few as 25 jobs being “saved” by the economic stimulus package. But when Reagan was president journalists showed unemployed families living out of their cars under a bridge in Texas and quoted Democrats or union leaders’ attacks on the president’s “wicked” and “sadistic” fiscal policies.

    ABC’s George Stephanopoulos looked on the bright side for Obama Sept. 4, 2009, telling viewers, “the unemployment rate nears 10 percent, but the numbers aren’t all bad.” Rewind to May 7, 1982, when unemployment hit 9.4 percent three-tenths of a percentage point lower than it would be in August 2009. That night, NBC found people in Seattle in dire straights.
    “The lines for free food at food banks are four times what they were six months ago,” NBC’s Don Oliver told “Nightly News” viewers. Oliver’s report focused on the “new poor” and the emotional effects of unemployment, including suicide and battering.

    The Media Research Center’s Business & Media Institute examined network unemployment stories on the evenings that unemployment data was released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics from March 2009 to September 2009 and March 1982 to September 1982. During that timeframe in 1982 unemployment ranged from 8.9 percent to 9.8 percent, and in 2009 it shot up even faster – from 8.1 percent to 9.7 percent. Here are some of our findings:

    Network Reports 13 Times More Negative Under Reagan than Under Obama: An overwhelming majority of stories mentioning the Reagan administration were negative 91 percent (20 out of 22) while only 7 percent (1 out of 15) of Obama administration mentions were negative. Additionally, Obama mentions were favorable 87 percent of the time, but there were zero positive mentions of Reagan.
    Networks Connect Reagan White House to Negative Jobs Numbers Almost Twice as Often as Obama: Unemployment stories in 1982 mentioned the Reagan administration 71 percent of the time (22 out of 31), but 2009 stories mentioned the Obama administration only 40 percent of the time (14 out of 35).
    Charles Gibson: 9.4% Unemployment ‘Good News’ (Obama) and also ‘All’ Bad (Reagan): The unemployment rate reached 9.4 percent under Reagan and Obama. But ABC’s Charles Gibson covered the identical rate very differently in 1982 than in 2009. Gibson told viewers May 7, 1982, “[T]here really isn’t any good news in the statistics. All the numbers are bad.” But by 2009, Gibson had turned into an optimist citing “good news” June 5 and “hope the economy may be finally turning the corner” Aug. 7.

    Well based on the fact that his crash for crunklers thing gave a false boost to the economy while yet increasing our debt even more.....yes, he will the focal point.

    Hell, when Bush had 4.5% unemployment and a steady growth of 3.5% he was stated as being a bad president. That's starting to look like gold bricks to this idiot in office now.

    LOL - yeah, I actually looked into that and realized it was bunked and doomed to fail.

    It was ridiculous - it was false hope. They started to amp up production only to find that it was extremely temporary and now all those people are in debt that they, before, were not in.

    Though my credit is stellar it would have cost us - at least - $400.00 for a vehicle that could seat the whole family, at the least. That includes trade-in value and overall deduction via CFC.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
