Out of the Blue

We had a fine old family outing yesterday, and the pastrami was exceptional, so a good time was had by all. It was a bit of an adventure on the roads, however, as we were confronted by a startling number of drivers who had difficulty staying even remotely in their own lane. My temptation is to blame it on cell phones, but in spite of seeing evidence that it was in some cases, it makes me feel like an old fogey to say that.

He inherited this mess from the previous administration

Please stop using that - it kills your whole point/argument.

Okay, it's 1AM here and I'm getting too tired to continue, but considering the Obama is cleaning up a mess he didn't make, things are looking pretty good: millions of new jobs created, GDP growing strong, stock market way up. Unemployment is not falling as quickly as hoped, but is still better than much of Europe, for example.

Mess: See first point I made.

Million of new jobs? How about the ones destroyed? Unemployment is probably 2-5% higher, as people have QUIT looking for work and are no longer counted. Obama administration has made HORRIBLE choices in investments and deals for buddy companies and has actually hurt he "green" industry. He is just as guilty about pushing jobs overseas and across borders. He wants to actually KEEP illegals here that are doing jobs Americans can do.

GDP IS NOT GROWING STRONG. Please reference, look at inflation trends, consumer confidence, warehouse orders for raw materials, etc. Adjust for seasonality, and it doesn't look good.

Stock market? Thing has been climbing like mad since we passed 8k. Please.

3rd world contries are currently better of than "Europe".

I get tired of some of the points of interest people throw out there as they hear it on their left wing pro O shows. Far left is just as bad as far right, but they just both yell and scream and point fingers.

Lets get past that and look at real data and real cause. Obama didn't do shit. He is a great speaker like a lot of Dems are, but he is the same as all previous. Big talker, little walker.
