Heckuva job, Barry...

The first-quarter contraction reported Wednesday by the Commerce Department was even more severe than the 1 percent annual decline it had estimated a month ago.

Not to worry Brick, NBC is on the job already blaming the really, really bitter, super cold record breaking temperatures and record breaking snow falls all over the country for the down turn.

Just before they have a segment on man caused global warming aka the dreaded 'Climate Change'.

Has anyone bothered to count the number of times that the Little Un has threatened us with "stern" and "merciless" retaliation?
The Little fat un threatened our deputy prime minster and foreign minister - a woman - with punishment the other day

"North Korea has threatened to "punish" Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop over comments to US media about Kim Jong-un."

She is a thin, tall leggy blonde !

Odd, I recall the Media screaming "Recession" and all sorts of dire results when the Economy was growing at 3.5% during the Bush Years. Did someone change the definition of "Recession" lately?

Yup, just proves that North Korea is just some big arse type of religious cult.

With nuclear weapons.

With a certifiably insane leader.

Yep, and it didn't go down very well over here either.

In fact, it made them look like real idiots.

Perthsaint,

That is an idiotic comment but knowing you are a Yes voter, I can understand it

Indeed. And the jobs created were McJobs, paying little, we were told. You don't hear that these days, as people are part-timed out of benefits, or just give up looking for jobs that aren't there. When they give up, they are no longer counted in the unemployment rate, another new wrinkle which hides the true 15%+ unemployment rate in America.

You also never get the "plight of the homeless" documentaries during a Democrat administration. They'll come back in 2016, though, I hope.

9-0 spanking of the POTUS by the SCOTUS

About time!


Today the Supreme Court unanimously held
that President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he made several appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and other agencies without Senate approval.

I read that, this morning, with delight. Similar case in front of SCOC and with this ruling the plaintiffs are hopeful it will go their way.

Yep, the picture of my guns, on the phone, are a threat to the cop's safety. get a life.

I actually heard a CNN commentator interpert this as pushback to the Presidents operating outside the bounds of protocol....and the constitution.

Have to see how the NBC talking heads spin it.

"Unanimously held" being the key and to me the most important part of the ruling, even the liberal Justices ruled against Obama.

Talk about a slap in the face to Obama.

In fact, the very basis on which the justices decided the case that the Senate can use extremely brief sessions to avoid a formal recess was a tactic devised by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada to frustrate Bush.
Oops, it's a bitch when a trick the Democrats create comes back and bites them on the butt.

There's a lot of time between now and NBC's flagship program, the network evening news. That's plenty of time to game it out to minimize the impact or even spin it into a win.
