U.S. GDP contracts 0.1% in 4th quarter. Unexpectedly! No, we’re not even in the Arab Spring yet, there’s another Summer of Recovery coming! What DIFFERENCE does it make at this point, senator? There musta been a tsunami or earthquake someplace that we don’t know about…

Growth BEFORE election. Contraction AFTER election. Hmmmm – wonder what little rat-faced bureaucrat assembled those numbers. Jeez – these bastards don’t even try to hide their corruption. It’s almost as if they are from Chicago or something.

Is anybody timing these contractions? This baby has got to be ready to burst.

Not even. The quarter would include October. Indicators were there, all right, they were just ignored.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the numbers had been fudged before the election. It’s also possible that the economy was expanding before the election because people thought that Romney would win and were planning accordingly.

The smartiest president ever heard that GDP contracted to .01% in the fourth quarter. When he was told how terrible this was, Fauxbama then called Holder over DOJ and demanded that a company named “.01%” be investigated to make sure the contract was legal.

Interesting observation in there: “The economy reversed from a 3.1% pace in the third quarter largely because federal government spending fell by 15%…”

In other words, the “recovery” itself was a phony-baloney Potemkin Village propped up by Sugar Daddy shuffling stacks of bills around.

Claims manhood, but I think he is grasping at a straw since he seems to have a real fetish for old wrinkled guys like Ron Paul…..we may never know, not without an autopsy…..

Supposedly a man, but dresses like a woman.
Like the he-she that works one of the team desks at my local VA clinic.
Just don’t ask anyone else there about it, they all panic and clam up like Eric Holder at a Fast and Furious investigation.
