NEW YORK Shoppers showed some spending muscle in July, once summer clearance sales and the hottest July in 50 years got them in the mood.

wctrib and presz b o tells us about this great BOOST in this article. On same page these two tells us about the gain of 163,000 added to employment and yet this increase the unemployment up to 8.3%, The day before we were told by them ( b o and wctrib) that we lost 165K jobs, but did not raise the unemployed rate leaving it at 8.2%. Wonder what figures these two want us to buy.
I feel these two should get their act together in telling us how great the economy is. They keep changing their ACT each time in their sermons while preaching to us. . THEY both know it is a election year, and we all would like to know the FACTS, NOT the information presz b o is feeding HIS media with them printing what HE tells them.

Good job Obama, even with Republicans on your back since you took office you have prevailed. Obama will do well in his next four years in office he has earned it.

What Republicans should be cheering is the shrinking of the government sector, where they are shedding jobs at all levels (local, state, federal) and making our government smaller.
But of course, whiny childish Republicans could never cheer something good happening even if it’s exactly what they want to happen!!!

So true Randy but in some cases the insane logic coming from some GOP politicans also opens the door to more government insight which increases gov spending. This is the party who screams its not constitutional when Obamacare was prevailed but gave us the Patroit Act…..

Obama, the great job “creator”! We gain 163000 jobs but the labor force shrinks 170000 jobs and unemployment increases to 8.3%. Obama and posters on this site are slapping each other on the back celebrating. 5 trillion added to our national debt and our labor force keeps shrinking. You guys need to stop listening and believing everything your Democrat talking heads are telling you!

THANKS to Obama turning around GM and working to make the big three automakers profitable Crysler hired 1500 workers in Il. to make the new Dodge Dart. Thanks to Obama GM has had some very profitable several years and a complete turn-around. Mean-while RomneyHood who has robbed from the poor to give to the rich has no real platform to run based on the economy his party ruined before Obama took office. Like we said you are not going to repair all the damage done during the Bush era in 4yrs. Oh and 8.3 for unemployement numbers is around the average give or take a few points. Obama has provided jobs and could have probably provided even more if Republicans would have worked with him. Their attempts to undermine the President is now going against them and rightfully so. After the urban areas in all our cities hit the polls, Obama will be our president for another 4yrs. Vote Obama for 2012, rather then an empty suit Romneyhood!

jimmyd. you really like to repeat your daily union talking points memo.
Here is a link to one of many anti private business policies this administration has taken to further their aim to detroy the private business sector.

jimmy, if we had 142.187 million people working on January, 2009 and as of Februrayr, 2012, we have 142.065 million working, how can you state and agree to the repeated comments of having created 4.2 million new jobs?
It’s a pretty sad day when we can’t all cheer together for the successes of our country.
Our country was founded on people working together for common goals. I thought our common goal was peace and prosperity for all americans.
The hate that I see for the president from some people gives me pain in the pit of my stomach. I was no fan of President Bush but I didn’t spend 8 years spewing hate. Hate Kills….Geeze guys, look what is happening to us as a country.

When there is a net success I will cheer.
There is a big difference between hating the President and hating his policies. The left claims people hate him to draw attention away from his failed policies.
It is sad when people support a failed President for all the wrong reasons.

Our country was founded by white, land holding slave owners who thought that only white anglo-saxon men should be allowed to vote. If that’s not freedom and equality, nothing is. Let’s not try to fantasize and rewrite history in the style of J.R.R. Tolkien. Our country was founded on inequality at the expense of others. Nothing more eloquent than that. It’s a strong tradition that carries on today.

Jimmy, is GM really profitable now or will they need another bail out soon? Supporters like yourself may want to make a big investment. I think you should be a bond holder so you can gift your investment to the union when GM needs their next bail out!

Romneyhood who took from the poor to give to the rich, is under increased pressure to produce his tax returns. Romneyhood has a way of defecting issues regarding his financial transactions. He is also quick to throw accountants and anyone else under a bus to try and clear any responsibilty for his finanial and political career that has been mostly a failure. Romneyhood was govenor of a state that ranked 47th in the nation for creation of jobs, and some independent experts don’t agree with his so called economic solutions, that by the way give huge tax breaks to those making several million a year. The polls don’t look good for Romneyhood especially after the MittBrit disaster. Many Americans realize Romney is not up to speed with foreign policy, but we don’t need to draw a picture to see how badly he failed there. I don’t think Romneyhood will be making anymore trips out of the country unless he is getting away for the weekend, his campaign cannot take anymore negative publicity…

jimmy, you are doing a good job of what you posted on another thread – “When someone has to try and present falsehoods means they are feeling insecure and are looking for anything to turn things around for them.” Apparently you cannot give us facts as to why your candidate is better and who you support , so you follow the method your mentor uses in every speech. Your posts sure rate of lot of Pinnochios.

Bobk, Have you ever wondered why Obama has allegedly spent 5 million dollars to seal his college records? If we had a fool’s fool like Prince Harry, we could claim he was claiming status as a foriegn national so he could go to school in America, or he was a B-C student who benefited from preferential racial treatment to attend Harvard Law School. Why is this president soo secretive about his academic achievement? What is he hiding?? We know he loves to toot his horn about his accomplishments, and even claims great accomplishments with what we consider failure, like deficit control, economic prosperity, job creation and the list goes on. Could it be his academic credentials are a little too average or perhaps below average and impossible to spin??? I prefer to think about his qualification for this office, unlike our Democrat friends on this site.

jimmy d, I am not saying you are lying about the information, but I will say you are sure doing one “tornadic” spinning of the facts.
Lets take the jobs info. The prior Governor of Masschusetts(Swift) added 19,000 jobs, Romney during his term added 49,100 jobs with the succeeding Governor Deval Patrick, losing 66,400 jobs.
First year Romney was governor, the state slipped from 47th to 50th in job creation. But with the last year of his term, the state had moved to be ranked 28th in job creation. While the unemployment rate was 5.7% when he took office, at the end of his term the number was 4.6% which was about the same as the national average.
jimmy d, you can spin the 47th percentile number , if that is all you want your view to be, but one has to look at all the facts to present the audience to make up their own mind. Much like the touting of the 4.2 million new jobs created when the Bureau of Labor stats show the total number of workers to slightly below that of the number employed in January, 2009. Wouldn’t you agree that creates a need for a huge stretch of the imagination?

Bob these are not falsehoods and what I am seeing is this will all play out when people vote our President in for another 4yrs. Did you know the wannabe first lady sold a horse for 125,000 that was doped up on painkillers and couldn’t perform. The Romney’s settled out of court. Makes you wonder what other shortcuts Romneyhood and his women have done? The selfrigheous so called judgmental right such as Bachman want to see Obama’s birth certificate yet Romneyhood will not show his tax returns! Come on Michelle ask Romneyhood for his returns? The more Mittmoney speaks the better it is for Obama….

jimmyd, I did not have to go to the Daily Kos to get this information.
“The lawsuit was settled last September and Romney is no longer involved in the lawsuit.”
If you would think, yes, think a little, she was named a co-defendant. The primary people sued were the trainer and his wife. With most legal actions, you sue the primary persons responsible and, if, you can find a deep pockets person who has money, which you can list as a co-defendat, you go for it.
Much the same regarding good friends in Chicago – the friend, Resko, went to jail and the other became president. You would have thought his best friend(the president with the Harvard law degree) would have given some sound legal advice to Resko to quite doing what Resko was convicted of.
Lets move on.
As far as birth certificates, Obama produced a certificate of birth after – what- 2 and a half years. Might have taken that long for the paper and ink to age to make it pass muster.(sarcasm). But who cares, I don’t. Whoever is president of the USA, they can make any document appear and disappear as they see fit.
Maybe you can tell me why he has spent $4 million in legal fees to suppress any of his school documents, student loan information and any of the information of any of the schools he said he attended? You might have to look somewhere other than the HuffPo or the Daily Kos.

Obama is getting a big boost from unions and public workers who are sick of the way they have been singled out by some Republicans balancing the budgets on workers backs. From all I am seeing and reading Romneyhood is not going to do it, and hopefully his VP will just be another anchor around his neck. Yea Pawlenty or Bachman no that is a laugh, keep it coming hahahaha! The Republican party has stooped to new lows in the last decade, and its no wonder they are not getting back into the W.H any time soon!

Imagine that headlines read the jobs market has improved. Gee now what are the Republicans going to do now. Any good news about the economy or jobs means the Republicans are running out of options. Romneyhood is desperate and has made misleading and false statements that he is being called out on by Clinton in public! Its one thing to go after the President in this race but its another to make things up and then involve someone else in a lie. Of course this is what you get with Romneyhood, an empty suit the best the Republicans can offer, which truly has to be disappointing even for the hardcore conservatives!
