they can see the reality now. 60% plus market rebound, record corporate profits, record low taxes, steady drop in new unemployment,
steady increase in manufacturing, retail sales, home sales, auto sales, etc. The economy's not 'fixed' by a long shot, but things have been
improving steadily since early 2009 and all the conservatives have to go on is the scary stuff.
When 25% of market volume on any given day is driven by government-owned or controlled stocks such as CITI and BofA, the stock market is no longer an
accurate barometer of anything except government desperation for phony "numbers" to point to,regardless of their authenticity. When Treasury
borrowing is propped up by Fed intervention, that side of the market no longer reflects a "free market." Many people are taken in by such chicanery
to their detriment.
There has been no net increase in manufacturing since inventories were depleted, then replenished to meet demand. There is no demand to support any
make-believe "steady increase in manufacturing."
Retailers can't even sustain "back-to-school" sales, much less day-to-day traffic. There is no steady increase in retail sales.
Home sales? You've got to be kidding! Existing home sales are plummeting, new home sales are at the lowest level ever measured, and foreclosures
will top 1 million this year; there is a 12 to 16-month backlog of housing inventory
when it has generally been 6 to 7 months in the
Auto sales? Even after GM grants the biggest incentives ever, its sales lag everyone else.
If you honestly believe that " things have been improving steadily," then I'd hate to see what "problems" are.
Bottom line, both Obama's have laid out their "dreams" for anyone to see.
Junior can't go back and erase what's been published, so he
acts as if he and his father never said what they truly believe. If that's what you want as well, then you're going to get exactly what you asked
According to most Americans
, they want no such thing.
