Annualized GDP declined from 5.6% last quarter to 3.2% this quarter.

President Obama declares:

“…we’re heading in the right direction. We’re moving forward. Our economy is stronger — that economic heartbeat is growing stronger.”

    More bluster from the shyster.

    Mark Levin was all over the oil spill in the Gulf tonight (as he also was last night too). Rather than working to minimize the damage and start the clean up, Obama waited while he focused on the Arizona Illegal Immigrants Law, town hall meetings and other things political. By the time the government actually swung into action, eight days had passed. But, at least they have neat baseball caps to wear.

    Again everyone today, I saw “lower than expected”. Well of course it was unexpected, this administration has no idea how an economy works so they have no idea what to expect.

    If you are in the market, and your portfolio loses 50% of its value, you have to gain 100% to get back to even. The economy is not so different. Real gains off a bottom are going to have to be at an accelerated rate, or jobs, the lagging indicator we all talk about, will continue to lag and the economy will remain in the doldrums. I haven’t seen the numbers but I suspect that government is still the only segment showing significant growth. Just what we need. sarc/

    #2 well he needed an excuse to halt all new off shore drilling, which has now been done.

    when Obama describes a 40+% DECLINE in our GDP as “we’re heading in the right direction” you know all you need to know our Pretender-in-Chief.

    The fox is PRESIDENT of the hen-house!!

    All I can say is watch the EU. Just like the last depression, that got jump started in Europe, it looks like this one, if we have one will too. The 19th is quickly approaching for Greece to repay notes and the EU ministers are still twiddling. Spain is now on death watch as well. Plus it was announced they have 20% unemployment.

    And so it goes…

    Mullet, I don’t know what the recovery numbers have to be but we are so far behind now as far as unemployed that to break even we would have to see 10-15% growth rates. That ain’t happening ever.

    National Enquirer claims that Obama may have cheated on Michelle. Drudge has the link. Suddenly the National Enquirer is the only paper that investigates anything.

    I saw the National Enquirer accusation a little while ago. All I can say is that the GOP has to be mighty careful in how they respond to it….which is to say that they shouldn’t respond to it at all.

    TLS & reggie, Obama’s unfaithful to the whole COUNTRY…so being doubly so to Michelle isn’t my worry! Maybe he and Tiger can get a little bachelor pad somewhere…ANYWHERE but the White House!

    “As the current and former POTUS,
    We don’t care if you smote us,
    It isn’t beyond the pale,
    To have a little strange tail,
    And you are free to quote us”.

    JR, I couldn’t care less if he did either. My comment was more in reference to the fact that once again, the National Enquirer is the only paper that is looking for facts. Bring on that Pulitzer.

    Nicely done, IP!

    TLS, I agree with you! 🙂 I was just being snarky, though not as splendidly snarky as IP! 🙂

    #11 Hubby and I were just discussing this last night. If the Edwards scandal had turned out not to be true I may have discounted the NE’s story on Obama. As it stands, I say there is a 50/50 shot, and I’ll wait until they have more evidence out there. If it is true- the excuse machine will spin in full gear, with stories of Michelle’s meanness and how O couldn’t help it- just watch. He will be made the hero from it. Even drawing pity.

    JM, after Clinton, would anyone even blink an eye? I mean at least he Obama didn’t do it in the oval office.

    #20 I do think they will blink…..with all the identity politics played throughout the election and beyond, they have more of the family likability going with their fans (because lets face it, they are celebs) than the Clintons did. People looked at Hillary and thought well???? Plus they have little girls….

    Snarky: sarcastic, impertinent, or irreverent in tone or manner


    There once was a bastardo named publius,*
    His demeanor was not at all lugubrious,
    His prose were sometimes raunchy,
    As he contemplated his paunchy,
    But his goals were always salubrious.

    That’s the kicker. Not to mention Michelle’s cult following.

    My question is if Obama did cheat on Michelle, did he cheat on her with another woman – or a guy? The reason I say this is I’ve had people mention to me before that Obama may have played for both teams in the past – and it was different people who didn’t know each other who mentioned it to me at various times.

    Lame-stream media will either ignore it or massacre the source who started it. Can’t have their object of affection being tarnished in any way.

    Just a week or two ago, Obama disappeared from the press pool on the pretense, announced afterward, as attendance at a kid’s soccer game. It could be he was trying to score somewhere else.

    Apparently, it is a big deal when the president slips away in his baggy tweeds.
