    From the buffered environment of the oval office, how in the world does he know anything about, "the state of the union". Does he look out the window occasionally?

    Here is an interesting map showing the affects of the Obama stimulus plan on the American economy. Maybe these people should lawyer up to get a job.

    Speaking of the stimulus plan, i heard some talking heads on CNBC this morning say that they thought that the stimulus had something to do with this jump in the economy.

    <U.S. Economy Grew at 5.9% Annual Pace Last Quarter>

    <Feb. 26 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. economy expanded at a 5.9 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter, more than the government reported last month, reflecting stronger business investment and a greater contribution from inventories.>

    <The rise in gross domestic product, which exceeded the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News, marked the best performance in more than six years, the Commerce Department said today in Washington.>

    U.S. Economy Grew at 5.9% Annual Pace Last Quarter (Update2) - Bloomberg.com
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Isn't that wonderful? Where is that growth? Can you name for me any other time in U.S. history where we had that kind of economic growth and yet NOT one dime of increase in tax revenue to the U.S. Govt?

    Think Donc, what did the stock market tell you about that economic growth? What is the unemployment number with that economic growth? What is the deficit with that economic growth? You have to do better than that.

    Doesn't seem that you have a clue and simply are looking for a win for "your" President. Sorry, but you don't understand the numbers but buy the rhetoric that this is good. Please learn the components of GDP and then find out where this increase occurred. then you will realize what the market realized, this is smoke and mirrors, unsustainable, and hardly real economic growth.

    Wish it weren't so but your empty suit President doesn't have a clue how to manage the U.S. Economy. Reagan knew how to do it, through the private sector, obama is doing it through the public sector. one of these days you will understand the difference.

    The only thing i can come up with is that a good part of it is stimulus.Do you think that Cramer got it right for once?

    Actually most of it is replenishment of inventory and the growth in govt. spending on things such as first time home buyer credits. There was no net gain in revenue to the govt. because there was no real job creation or private sector economic growth. I did not see Cramer so not sure what he said.

    Go to bea.gov, Gross Domestic Product, interactive tables, Frequently Requested tables, GDP. See where the growth occurred.

    This economic growth was a mirage and unsustainable. If he doesn't do something to get the private sector moving all that gain will sink in a hurry. Obama economic plan is focused on growth of govt. not growth of the private sector where the real jobs are created.
