I find this statement amusing, for some reason.
Stop buying imported goods.
Return jobs to America.
Wow, the start of another ‘Bush Resession’!
This number will be corrected shortly. Any record of it ever having been reported will then be erased by the Ministry of Truth.
If GDP keeps going down all the time, I would think the last four years of stimulus hasn’t worked. Why does the Fed need more stimulus?
When business owners realized that the Marxist was re-elected by the Takers, the Makers pulled in their chips.
The Q1 results come in in March. By then, the phony bullish numbers that Wall St. puts out every Jan. will show a bust, as they have the past three years.
Figures lie and liars figure: The motto of the Obama administration.
The stimulus is working - in Asia.
This is terrible, we need to print money faster to keep up with demand!!
Yea, we all must have missed that the recession ended.
Waiting for the media to put a positive spin on this GDP number.
They can make it up in volume.

Well, this will certainly come as a shock to my father, who believes that the economy has been recovering for some time and that unemployment rapidly is decreasing.
I am guessing that tha MSM and the Administration will find some “plausible reason” that they can circulate to the steeple, and it will be seen as “just a bump in the road.”
Guess they shouldn’t have raised our taxes.
