DO YOU THINK THAT PRESIDENT BASHING AND A WEAKENING U.S. ECONOMY ARE RELATED?

IS THIS A TREND THAT IS STARTING TO DEVELOP? I AM LOOKING OUT FOR THIS AND WONDERED IF ANYBODY ELSE HAS GIVEN IT ANY THOUGHT. THE MORE WE BASH, THE WORSE IT GETS? I'M NOT SURE YET BUT WOULD LOVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
DUDE:

Sorry. I don't concur. As of this morning our economy grew by 4.9%. Too many doomsayers or pseudo prognosticators look at one section of the economy and state we are all going to hell in a hand basket. Well they are wrong and the stats prove it. Although I can't agree with the President on everything, the economy is not one of them and he appears to be doing a good job in keeping us out of a recession.

Leese:

mister, what you don't understand about how that figure is tabulated is the fact that its just like how unemployment is tabulated. if everyone in this country lost their job today, unemployment would be at 100%. six months from now, we would all fall off the count. unemployment would be at zero. i think if you did the research of how these things are calculated, you might be surprised. does not the fact that foreclosures are at all time high in twenty years tell you anything?

Swifty:

why would something be (tabulated) in this way? where do i find this information? this does not make any sense to me. where do you get your information for this (tabulating) formula?

Swifty:

ok, am i the only one who noticed us heading into a recession during the end of clinton's term? everybody blames bush for it and he did not start that. i am however seeing factory (meat & potato) jobs close down everywhere and move out of the country. these jobs had insurance packages, decent wages and other benefits that i am afraid no longer exist with the newer jobs that are being created. i must live in a bubble though to some extent as i do see people working in my area. now what if any benefits they get with these new jobs i don't know. i live in an area where (brack) will be moving to (redstone arsenal) so, we are starting to see a little influx of construction and other jobs in order to prepare for all the new residents we will be getting between now and 2011. that's good for us but i don't think the rest of the country is so lucky. i could be wrong. i don't know of any foreclosures either except for one here and there and i don't see a change in the amount of them. that's all good but do we still have jobs with benefits?

MizLiz:

The weakened economy happened for other reasons,did occur because of active knowing negligence of republicans.And,liberals.The gross global economic trend,is globalization at it's most demonstrated open case.
Bush-bashing,..??What,then,was Clinton-bashing,all years of 1993-2001,and still,we get Clinton-bashing?

Swifty:

i have heard so many contractors say that they can't wait till a democrat gets back in office so they can start working more (domino effect) and that when the republicans go into office people sit on their money because they are afraid to spend it therefore; they are causing spending to dry up. is there anything to that?

Russ:

"Plus ca change, plus la meme chose".
No- a reading of American history will show that presidents have been bashed since the time of Washington. Nothing new, here.

Swifty:

the only problem i see with that is the fact that we didn't have the wide spread media and internet influence that we have today so can we still use that as a comparison?

13:

do you?

Swifty:

sometimes i think ranting, weather it be about a president or certain other things, can cause an effect on it. just like certain ranting can effect the stock market at times and i don't think it is a happy accident that it occurs in all cases either.

W'd-U-Say:

CAPS LOCKā„¢. UNLEASH THE FURIES.

Swifty:

what does (caps lock. unleash the furies mean?) i didn't use cap lock to emphasize anything, i just wanted to use it.

DUDE:

Using all caps in blogs or e-mails indicates shouting. The more you know...

Swifty:

oops, didn't mean to shout. thanks for the info.

Leese:

are suggesting that we are being punished for being Americans and calling a spade a spade? lets say your right, (although i cant see the connection, its all by design) how do you feel about the America being attacked by our president for exercising our first amendment rights??

Swifty:

the president has not stopped me from my freedom of speech in any way. i think that sometimes people try to control the way speech is delivered but not the freedom of speech as a whole. sometimes i can't hear because of the yelling and it makes a person's speech hard to understand. the delivery & presentation of a speech goes a long way when done in a way that can be heard and understood. the venom can take away from the message. you see what i mean?
