    Republicans are doing their very best to sink the economy. That's what the fight over the debt ceiling was all about,

    Re: Obama announces his Candidacy for 2012.

    this morning

    A stunning new survey gives the president a negative approval rating in the Empire State for the first time, with just 45 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval among voters, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.

    That's a sharp turnaround from June, when Obama's New York popularity was a healthy 57-38.

    "The debt-ceiling hullabaloo devastated Obama's numbers even in true-blue New York," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
    NY turns on Obama, says Quinnipiac University poll - NYPOST.com

    "The great recession"?

    That's a new and interesting term.

    Except when the reason is that fewer people are buying American made goods and services. That is what the quoted story indicated. It isn't that we were buying way more (a positive sign) but that others are buying way less from us (a negative sign).

    I kinda like the idea so long as it is open, above board and appropriately called out. Like my bolded word that fixes your sentiment.
    I believe it adds to the fun. And it makes clear the juxtaposition of our differing view points. Will anyone misunderstand? It is unlikely.

    Except that isn't true at all. Manufacturing and exports have been the strongest areas of this tepid recovery.
