Of course, what Howdy Doody doesn't want you to know is the REASON behind the stagnation: GOP obstruction. Oh heck yeah, the Doods can whine and point at Obama's administration and the hairy hordes will lurch at the bait - but the REALITY is clowns in the majority have stopped virtually EVERY initiative Obama and the Dems have put forward to pull us out of Bush's GOP-mismanaged economic nightmare. Nice going, Rethugs --- your stated goal to stick it to Obama in stalling and obliterating every legislation regardless of how it will screw the country as a whole (think credit rating downgrade due to rethuglican tantrums) has worked to keep the economy nearly at a standstill. Craven cowardly Rethugs.

Who is Howdy Doody? A figment of your warped mind?

Obama has been President for three years and he said his economic stimulis would keep the unemployment rate under 8%.

Hey Rae37...
If you aren't already on Obama's payroll... you should be. You sound like every other misinformed attack dog he has in his minions.

Either that... or most likely... you just delusional from all the Koolaid!

Yeah, yeah, yeah ... wipe the drool and dribble off your chin. Same liberal rhetoric and BS.

You fail to mention that your Commie had Congress for his first 2 years ... your excuse fails for that alone.

Own your choices and your failures RAE -- Obama is out of there.

Well now, what about Obamas first 2 years? Was the house and senate controlled by dems? Do the dems still have the senate and the WH? Me thinks your an idiot.

Hey idiot: IT DIDN'T WORK! But that's O.K. Blame it on us, and we'll see you at the polls.

As for "craven cowardly," feel free to post where I can find you and we'll see who's a coward.

Put the kool-aid down and register for an econ class that doesn't regurgitate the Keynesian model. You should be thanking the GOP for the stop signs, had Obozo had his way, our economy would be so far deep in the hole, we'd need a fleet of cranes to dig out. YOU CAN'T SPEND AND TAX OUT OF A RECESSION, IT DOESN'T WORK. FDR tried the Keynesian experiment; the result was ten years of GREAT DEPRESSION!

Stagnant, at best.  The Associated Press summarizes succinctly:

US economic growth slows to 1.5 percent annual rate from April-June, consumer spending weakens.

Reuters points out another interesting figure:

Gross domestic product expanded at a 1.5 percent annual rate between April and June, the weakest pace of growth since the third...
