Should the Republicans panic yet? Lots of positive economic news coming out

Good ADP employment report. Better than expected ISM report. New home construction spending is up.

 

What are they going to run on if the economy picks up steam this year? I guess they can always hope that Europe drags us down with them.

And when the short lived euphoria wears off the left can always go back to but Bush.

I think anyone would cheer an economic recovery.

 

We aren't seeing any signs yet.

 

we will most likely get caught in the European vortex.

 

It is evidenced today as the Economic news isn't really good.

 

Why is the Euro breaking support?

 

The problem is our governemnt has affixed heavy shackles and cement to the ankles of a recovery that currently flounders in the maelstrom

 

Obama administration & Bernanke has married us to a the EU crisis based on several actions in the past two years, most recently the swap that leaves us holding the bag on upwards of a trillion USD.

 

The admin has done nothing to lead us out of this depression. The actions taken are apparently designed to save a faulty system in the EU.

 

derriding the repulicans based on the anticipated response is nonsensical.

 

What has this Administration done to foster an economic recovery?

 

We are in deep doo-doo.

 

Even if a fudged number encourages a dead-cat bounce, I cannot accept obama as the lesser of two evils because we have been set on a course towards rapid insolvency and weimar deflation.

an economic bump is bad news for the GOP if the ONLY thing they have to run on is "Anyone But Obama"



 



if they have a message that resonates.... it doesn't matter.



 



good news for the US should be good news for everyone.

If it's such "good news" why is the Euro breaking support?

 

Why are the markets reacting negative?

 

 

Leon Panetta recognizes we are still in a world of ****

 

11:18 AM TODAY: *U.S. FISCAL CRISIS FORCING STRATEGIC SHIFT, PANETTA SAYS

 

*PENTAGON IS AT 'TURNING POINT ' DUE TO BUDGET CUTS: PANETTA

 

Obama is a disaster.

 

Any chance at economic recovery was dashed to the rocks when we swapped debt for donuts with the ECB.

well said F'nMag

 

Gami can claim economic improvement all he wants

 

until an administration seriously addreses cuts in spending and entitlements - it's all a facade

 

the underlying foundation will be made of cards - regardless

the problem is jobs,

 

 

 

if employment was up, tax proceeds would be too, and the deficit's growth would not be what it has been.

 

 

 

spending cuts won't fix the problem (on it's own)

 

we gotta get people off the dole, and that means jobs.

And if employment was up they would be spending even more.

 

The problem is over spending money we do not have period.

why parenthetical?

 

We compounded our spending misery by bailing out Europe!

 

4 more years!

 

Let's say it in the language of the the people that will be the recipients of our tax dollars:

 

τέσσερα έτη περισσότερο

 

Quattro Ani Piu!

 

Quatre Années Plus!

 

Cuatro Años Más!

 

Quatro Anos Mais!

Why parenthetically? Ill tell ya why SG cuz we need big tax increses, thats why. Have yo not been listening to the left the last couple years? all they talk about is increasing taxes.

 

more jobs mean more revenue to the govt......the best part of the last 18 months for me has been the fact the govt is stealing far less from me than they did before........the bad news is I make far less for me now too.

 

slash spending now! its so simple.

Better economic news, (which I don't see happening), even if it should come to pass, isn't going to pull Obama's keester out of the fire. He's got a trail of turds behind him, and he can't hide behind 'Hope & Change' this time around. We've still got him by the short hairs. :squid:

mmm, bond market hasn't done much on the ADP release (somewhat of an unreliable indicator of NFP).



 



however, other (less followed) employment indicators are skewing positive (well, more positive than negative), which is interesting.
