    Pretty much. Never underestimate the human ability to make anything souond like something else. I just wish those who did this were more original. These type of scare tatics are as old as the union.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Not the way you mean it, no. Like I said, never underestimate the human ability to twist anything to fit their own view.

    You have already demonstrated you do not know what a recession is. Do the last two consecutive quarters show negative growth in GDP?

    Ask Senator Tom Coburn.

    The unemployment rate went up. Haven't you been telling us that that is a lagging indicator? Obviously, we're still in a recession.

    Thanks confirming you do not know what a recession is!

    U.S. recession ended June 2009, NBER finds

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — "The U.S. recession that began in December 2007 ended in June 2009, making the 18-month slump the longest since the Great Depression, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research."

    Stop!!! You made me spew beer all over my monitor.

    Obama admitted, in December that we're still in a recession. Your Messiah said so, so that makes it gospel. Want me to post the quote?
