There has never been any jobs created. We have lost 5,000,000 jobs since Obama was sworn in. Right now 13,000,000 people are on unemployment, and another 16,000,000 have stopped even looking for a job. Real unemployment is around 11 percent. Do you think that 16,000,000 will vote Democrat i n November?

This is a terrible omen of what is to come. There never was a real recovery, and even as the economy was showing a tiny improvement for a month or so that is all gone now. We need leadership. We need people who understand economics, not tax evaders, business people in charge of the recovery.
Quit lying and dividing America, you worthless old hag. reTHUGlicans constantly fearmonger and harp about 'doom,' and in doing so hope to sabotage the economy, ruin the country, and seize power. I would imagine they'd hope for mass riots in the streets so they could push for martial law, but it's possible they haven't thought that far ahead.

Applying stimulus ended the recession. We are in recovery. If Mittens and his Wall St. buddies are allowed to start enacting their European-style austerity, we will be back in recession in no time.

Don't elect economic thugs from Wall St.!

Quit lying. Obama hasn't "lost" a single job, but Mittens has cost this country thousands of them.

Inquiring minds want to know what happened to YOUR mind...

Even the Democrats are admitting 3 straight months in a row of retail sales losses means we are in a recession. We never fully recovered from the last one. The Democrats are clueless as to how to deal with the economy, or joblessness. No one is buying anything until after the election, and we begin to see the changes we were promised in 2008 from the Repoublicans,

You're an ignorant loaf. From Wikipedia:

"In economics, a recession is a business cycle contraction, a general slowdown in economic activity.[1][2] Macroeconomic indicators such as GDP, employment, investment spending, capacity utilization, household income, business profits, and inflation fall, while bankruptcies and the unemployment rate rise."

Nothing about retail sales, and who says we've had "3 months of losses" anyway?

The ReTHUGlicans will bring us "changes," alright - a change back to the Bush Recession. Ignorant sow.

There you go again, Harvey... blindly parroting the same liberal BS that you've been fed by the MSM. Is it possible for you to once in your life construct a logical coherent thought?
