    On a scale of 1 to 10, how "good" is it?

    Relative to where we have been for the last 3 years, it is a 10. Relative to the economy of the post war era as a whole, it is a 5.

    Wait what Republican momentum?

    I know of an independent/Libertarian moment that argues against both Republicans and Democrats, but I don't think America wants to see the Old, Red Guard back in power.

    No! The economy is not about Obama, it's about the state of our country. It may benefit him(or hurt him dependent on the actual state), but it is not about him. I really do get the impression that some of you on the right want the economy to stay bad so you can benefit from it politically, which is just sad.

    It's very much about Obama. It's the reason Obama is president.

    Nope. Its about the desire for validation. It is the desire to be declared correct and have more ammunition to enforce a particular vision on the country.

    It's a 3 or 4 compared to the last 2 years. 3 years is a bit of a stretch. We hit 7% first in Dec 2008. I'll have to go back to Obama's promise which was, in hindsight, insanely naive if not an outright lie... Obama promised the creation of 2.5 million new jobs in November 2008.

    As of February 2009, job losses were at 3.6 million. While the hemorrhaging has slowed, we're still not creating jobs... we're simply losing less...

    As has been identified in other threads - the actual unemployment number is closer to 17%-18%. Don't think a little positive growth due to artificial stimulation with federal money paying for the temporary jobs will do much long term. Our job losses will get meaningful recovery once housing, once economic stability by banks, and lending occurs as well as when people can get out from under their mortgages, foreclosures, etc.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
