Interesting read with the added attraction of being true.

Are you actually posting that article with a straight face or is this a joke.

Thanks for posting that.

The majority of the article talked about how economists, on both sides, think Obamanomics is working, and that he's basically doing a decent job as far as the economy goes.

I had to laugh after reading the part about the Bloomberg poll, the results of which showed that only 30% of individual investors think that their portfolio values have increased over the past year. As noted in the article, that's almost impossible, given how the markets have improved.

It proves that either, 1) a lot of people don't know beans about their portfolios, or 2) that they will lie about their finances just to make Obama look bad. I think it's the latter. But hey, that shouldn't surprise us after all the lying that their Republican & FOX leaders are doing to smear the president, right?

Well, I just listen to the experts in the field.

Yes, Fox and similar far-right sources are doing their "evil" best.

Huh, I guess it depends on who it is working for, now doesn't it.

I believe your definition of common sense and mine do not "jive."

Experts? Outside of cherry-picked slants from selected market segments, the entire article was written by a liberal writter qith a history of being a political pundit.


But hey, if the left wants to cheer about their short-lived junkie fix and how our economy has gotten $100 Billion healthier after a $600 Billion bailout, calling that success, be my guest.


I remember way back to the early 90s when the University of Illinois had some of the crappiest football teams/seasons its ever had. The teams were so bad, fans in the bleachers had to resort to celebrating 1st downs because touchdowns and fieldgoals were simply too much to expect. So I understand how liberals feel at the moment.
