I'm sick of the LIES about the state of our economy

When oh when will the idiot GOP learn to quit accepting the premises of the leftwing media and start defending the sound U.S. economy?

For the past 7 1/2 years Americans have been led to believe that our nation is on the verge of economic collapse.

This is nonsense.

The economy has been growing steadiliy since 2003-2004, and there has been NO RECESSION since early 2001-2002. A ‘recession’ is defined as two straight quarters of job shrinkage, and our economy has not had such a period.

If this is so, why do Republicans go along with the media-created premise that things are terrible economically? Are they just politically stupid or blind to economic reality? Could it be both?

I want to see the GOP get some grapes and start defending our economic stability, the free market and jobs creation.

They act like just because there are some problems that everything is going to hell in a handbasket.

Not true and everyone knows better except rubes that listen to the daily forecasts of DOOM and GLOOM from the mainstream media.

Wall Street has some problems and so does the housing sector. Those two sectors of the economy created their own problems and NO ONE should be bailing them out so they can continue following the same policies that got them in this mess in the first place. So why, just WHY are Republicans and the White House trying to salvage these sectors?

Phil Graham was right and McCain booted him off his team because he was bold enough to tell people that our economy was sound (which it is) and not give into the ‘spin’ of the media machince. The rest of the GOP has nothing but raisins. Grow some grapes, GOP and start defending your economic record. You didn’t cause the mortgage or lending crisis and you have nothing to be sorry about or ashamed of.

I’m ashamed of you though. Very ashamed.

GROW SOME GRAPES!
