    Show us one person here who said a bad economy is a good thing.

    Go on.

    I was pointing to his talking about how republicans will win in november, not about a bad economy.

    I'm just sayin, no matter what party's in power, they're both morons so it doesn't matter.

    I know, its kind of crazy. Bad economic news is always posted and focused primarily on by one group of people here, and Good economic news is always posted and focused primarily on by another group of people here.

    Its like this weird bizarro world of 3 or 4 years ago, when the second group only posted bad economic news and the first group only posted good economic news.

    Weird how that works.

    What is even weirder is that one particular group makes these accusations in bad economic posts, while another group makes these accusations in good economic posts, but rarely does anyone make them in both posts.

    Odd, I think this had a bizarro world trend from some years ago too.

    Why would that be...hmmm...what could possibly be the reason....

    And November, I'm sorry to tell you, is already in the bag for Republicans. The Dems are going to take huge hits, including a lot of people who've been running your party for a long, long time.
    The majority party always loses seats in the midterm, it's like clockwork, so I guess that depends on your definition of "in the bag." Fivethirtyeight predicts an 85% chance of the Democrats maintaining at least 51 seats in the Senate. I haven't seen a comprehensive breakdown of House battles.

    If the current job creation trend continues, I suspect that will swing things back towards Team Blue somewhat. Eight months of six-figure job creation stats will help qualm fears about the economy.

    Change "right-wing" to "left-wing" and this could be a Deegan or Stinger post from 2006.

    Change "economy isn't recovering despite every economic indicator that it is" to "we're not making progress in Iraq despite every indicator that we are" and this could be a Navy Pride or ARealConservative post from 2008.

    I don't trust the government's numbers. I get unemployment figures here.

    Gallup Daily: U.S. Workforce

    It's much more accurate than the figure reported on the news as it includes a pretty good attempt at measuring underemployment. As this shows: ouch. Quit extending unemployment benefits. Quit threatening new taxes. How does anyone expect unemployment to settle down in this environment?

    Our taxes are at about their lowest levels ever, so somehow I suspect taxes are not the cause of our woes.

    Recovery? Have you seen this much more accurate charts?

    Gallup Daily: U.S. Workforce

    Consumer Spending (Weekly)

    Job Creation Index (Weekly)

    Economic Confidence Index (Weekly)

    It looks like things are stabilizing at crap.

    It is the threat of taxes. Talk about a VAT and cap-and-trade create an environment of fear that will prevent new hirings. Also worth nothing that taxes are not down on the rich. And what group of people is in the position to hire us? The rich.

    Yes, that would be spending more than you have.
