Why is it always "gonna" be worse with you? When does it actually stop getting better and get worse? If every day you get up and say "Darn, its gonna rain today" once in a while you're going to be right but that doesn't mean you're any sort of prognosticator.
Last week the Consumer Confidence Index beat expectations hitting a six year high.
I know good news seems like bad news to y'all but it really isn't. Maybe if y'all quit blaming Obama for everything you could accept that good things happen that he has nothing to do with.

Sometimes it's very difficult to understand why the Democrats do what they do. Let's take the case of that clown Anthony Weiner. The Democrats actually want this clown to be mayor of New York City, and actually think they can manufacture enough votes for this clown to be "elected".
Why is putting that clown Anthony Weiner in the New York City mayor's office of national importance to the Democrats? The answer to that question is who his wife is.
Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Staff to the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Who is Huma Abedin?
Daughter of Saleha Abedin: Muslim Sisterhood, International Committee for Women and Children (muslims keep women as sex slaves and mutilate the genetalia of young girls), Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs. All of these lead to Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, a prominent leader and theologian of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Brother of Hassan Abedin: Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, which is a direct connection to Abdullah Omar Naseef (Muslim Brotherhood terrorist non-profit organization Rabita Trust) and Yusuf Al-Qaradawi.

If that clown Anthony Weiner ends up mayor of New York City, the Muslim Brotherhood will be the mayor of New York City.
New York City was the primary target on 9/11(2001).

The Democrats are tuning up Hillary to run for president, also.

Can anyone here not connect these dots?

The next phase of the war the Arabs started with the United States will be fought right here, with the President of the United States sabotaging the United States if Hillary somehow gets into office.

The pendulum is being pushed very far from center now. It will swing back.
God help all of us. The world will feel the shock.

Really, how pathetic can you get., Flack. This is the problem with you right whiners & why you people are so pathetic. You can't even admit the recession & economic collapse was well in progress when Obama walked in the door & the downward slide started to end in just a month after the Stimulus Bill was passed.

You people can't even blame a single Republican. Not Bush, Not Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, Cantor all there supporting the policies that led us down that path.

"OMG OMG Omg we need a balanced budget!! "Spend within our means" OMG OMG "

But when its all said & done, you GD idiots still support the party that took us from your precious balanced budget to the wort recession in 80 years.

And Flack, don;y you dare pretend you are not a right whiner & support Republican candidates.

2012 CEO pay of the top 200 CEOs in America was up 16% from 2011. Congrats on the average $15.1 million per year with a top place person at $96.2 million. A big shout out to President Reagan that made this 30 year, 400% increase possible. Trickle Down Trickle Down.

Your economic recovery is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.

The annual deficit is 1.3 trillioin, down from 1.6 trillion it grew to before the TEA Party came to Congress in 2011.
The total debt is 17 trillion. The US economy is only 15 trillion.
The debt grows at 8 percent each year, while the calculated economic growth is only 2 percent. The real (private) economy that actually pays for everything is stagnant, and is only about 12 trillion.
So, the debt is one and a half times as big as what pays it.
And, the debt grows at almost 8 percent a year.
A stagnant economy has to pay a debt that is one and a half times its size and grows at 8 percent every year.
An idiot can tell you this system will collapse. What we need to do to fix it is to stop borrowing money. That is the 1.3 trillion dollars every year.
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You are a liar.

The number of PT jobs was higher in late 2009 than they are now. Yet the number of FT jobs has increased.

Obama On Criticisms Of Delaying Employer Mandate:‘I’m Not Concerned’ With Congress’ Opinion

When the interviewer, Jackie Calmes, asked Obama if he was acting within his executive power to unilaterally delay the employer mandate, Obama said he wasn't concerned with Congress' opinion on the matter, alluding to the fact that he is a constitutional lawyer.

"If Congress thinks that what I’ve done is inappropriate or wrong in some fashion, they’re free to make that case," Obama said. "But there’s not an action that I take that you don't have some folks in Congress who say that I'm usurping my authority. Some of those folks think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency. And I don't think that's a secret. But ultimately, I’m not concerned about their opinions -- very few of them, by the way, are lawyers, much less constitutional lawyers."

take that! and some of this! and some more of that!

the guy is starting to get pretty good at giving back what he's been getting.

ok FOXbots, start the whine fest even though you assholes have done nothing but put him down for 5 years now; and you'll still act like Obama has no right to throw it back at anyone else.

but at this point...i wouldn't know how to act if you nutjobs didn't do your hypocrisy dance. it's the culture.

The establishment is getting nervous ... good:

"As a former prosecutor who was appointed by President George W. Bush on Sept. 10, 2001, I just want us to be really cautious, because this strain of libertarianism that's going through both parties right now and making big headlines, I think, is a very dangerous thought," Christie said.
