    Economy limping back to strength

    No doubt the Libbos are going to spin this by saying that if they hadn't stepped in, it would be even worse. But, if the un-employment rate isn't any better than 7.5% by 2012, PBO might as well start figureing how much furniture he wants to steal on his way out of the WH, heading back to Illinois.



    The unemployment rate will remain elevated for years to come, according to a forecast released Tuesday by the Federal Reserve that addresses for the first time economic conditions at the time of the next presidential election.

    It paints a grim picture. Top Fed officials expect the unemployment rate to remain in the 6.8 to 7.5 percent range at the end of 2012 and said it could take "about five or six years" from now for economic activity to return to normal. The jobless rate was 10.2 percent in October.

    Shouldn't you be looking in the mirror and admitting you were wrong about the stimulus? I think you blame your own faulty opinions on everyone else but yourself.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    The Stimulus did nothing.
    The economy is recovering because deflation lowered prices and thus, people are taking advantage of that, and spending more. The businesses now have business to carry out.
    The stimulus was pathetic. Nobody saw any effect.

    Considering the bulk of the stimulus funds will be spent over the next two years, your evaluation is premature.

    Considering that government can't spend money on our wants as well as we can, it will be a tremendous failure. It only props up industries that don't suit our needs as well as the ones that we would have spent our money on.

    People steal furniture from the WH?

    If people can sneak in then I assume that they can sneak things out.

    Why would she want to steal things? They're not going to have enough time to see the Entire WH.
