Is it against the law for me to say I would like to kick the ever loving shite out of Jay Carney? Because if it is, I won't say it.

White House press secretary Jay Carney laid the blame for a surprise economic contraction squarely at the feet of congressional Republicans Wednesday, saying economic threats during the "fiscal cliff" negotiations had prevented important defense spending.

To be fair, I've seen articles that attributed defense spending to the contraction.

But I would have thought that conservatives would have ran with that since it's their holy grail.

Shocking how much power republicans have in DC these days.


Agreed. If they can do this as the minority party in the House, imagine what they could do if they were in powhah!

And the pundits say Obama is out to eliminate the Republican Party!!! No way, they are his convenient whipping boy.

The media will just lap this up. This will become the third bush recession. Watch.

The media and the left (one in the same) constantly accuse republicans of wanting the nation to fail. Do you think Obama's machine prefers good news or would rather have bad news that they and their media can instantly blame on republicans?
I mean we know that negatives get people's attention, and we know it's easier to give the simple-minded democrat sheeple a bogeyman than it try to get them to understand economic principles.

So threats in the last 3 weeks of the year turned the entire quarter's GDP negative?

So true. Right now they are getting worked like the Washington Generals playing the Harlem Globetrotters.

Before that people were worried about the threats.

Really, the problem was that once Obama was reelected, that's when things tanked. People started making plans to sell assets. I doubt people were in a mood to buy, especially Republicans.

Think about it. We had a mini panic. People Also, probably sold stocks and now are repurchasing them to set a new basis point so they could take advantage of the old tax rates. People sold property too.

2013 will bring a cautious time as people try to figure out just what is going on.

At some point, it's no longer daddy's fault, and you have to take ownership of it.

Wait, hasn't massively cutting defense spending been the Democratic mantra for decades?

In all fairness, why would they ever say anything different. The mechanism to convey messages to the masses is controlled by the liberals. They will never question the proclamations of the president as long as he is a democrat. It is the easy (and only) political play Obama and the Democrats have...I'd use it too.

True, the problem is that in the past the average Joe was smart enough to realize a giant line of shite coming from the Pols, now they are too fricking stupid, and watching Honey Boo Boo to see this putz and company has sold them a total bag of shite.

That's pretty funny, considering the dems have been in the majority for over six years now.
