re: Bad News Again For Obama - Manufacturing Continues Contraction


Economy is the #1 issue right now so you'd don't think this would lead the nightly newscasts on the big 3 tonight don't you? No, the lead was an Obama soundbite on the campaign trail.
When CBS mentioned a slowing economy, it was the third story, they spent 15 seconds on it, did not include Obama in the statement and quickly switched to a story on Syria.

Most economists believe that the economy will pick up steam in September and October. Obama will ride that wave towards reelection.

I'm sure we'll be treated to a rash of "unexpected" news reports after escalating drought and gas prices sock most momentum in that direction, too.

He believes Obama caused the financial crises. I can't reason with that.

Good luck!

It didn't seem to me he was blaming Obama. He was comparing the economic numbers from Bush when Obama got elected to the current numbers and inferring that the poor numbers are good for the opposing party. He even lamented the fact that our bad economy is good for the party out of power, whether that be the Dems or Reps. He expressed frustration that Obama, whom he previously supported, has not improved things in the economy. He then asked you to show him where his reasoning was wrong.

I was wondering. I didn't frequent PT often in the past b/c it would get me too worked up, but I remembered this about you. Your posts recently have made me question that.

And Psych - good synopsis!

Say what you will about the politics but why is the loss of a sector per se a bad thing for the economy. In an international free trade globalized economy, nations work best on the concept of comparative advantage where countries specialize and export the products they make most efficiently. Clearly we aren't the most efficient manufacturers given the world labor market. But we do lead the world in certain high tech industries and that's where we should be headed.

There is no problem with this except the politics of temporary unemployment. But the long run issue of efficiency will naturally be worked out assuming no significant trade barriers, tarriffs etc.

Would be nice if these types of discussions were held instead of pandering to certain well lobbied interests attempting to preserve the status quo or reach for the past.

This thread is a perfect representation of DA and is utter inability to actually refute anything or have any intellectual discourse regarding the topic at hand. He posts, flees, deflects, and deflects some more. Even a simple question is too much to ask of him.
