How many times has he learned important news through the media instead of his chief of staff, the CIA or his inner circle?


It does not matter, because if he had heard about it before hand the nutters at Fox would be going full derp over the fact that he knew it beforehand.

"Do you remember what the Dow was at when [President George W. Bush] left office?"

Dow Jones Industrial Average...blah, blah, blah. Liberals love the DJIA as the sole yardstick of economic health.
Want to see the DJIA rise again? Simply have General Electric, Ford Motor Company, or Apple announce lay-offs of 25,000 workers each. THAT will similarly drive it up, too. You think that is good news on the street, though?

The unemployment rate measurement is flawed. President Barack Hussein Obama and his minions know it. We also know it. Someone who is unemployed, has exhausted his or her benefits is now NO LONGER MEASURED using the current formula. One who was Director of Marketing and now a WalMart greeter or coffee barista is also NOT measured.

An economy is healthy when a qualified and high-achieving employee can leave a position and take an even better job through the normal interview process and rather quickly. Unless one is a President Obama watercarrier, those are not the prevailing conditions. In the interest of bipartisanship...I will say the employment environment during the time of President William Jefferson Clinton's second term was excellent. That was a genuine economic boom.

I agree Sir Eric of Summit.

the Bill Clinton years were great for my employers and stock holders at the steel mill and for me. we were going 6 and 7 days and I was making time and a half working over time. we couldn't make enough pipe and we expanded into cold drawn pipe in addition to our butt weld pipe.

my most boring job at the mill:

I remember when I was on the tester looking through the pipe (candling) to throw out the butt welds (two ends butted together) I found. the butt welds are where the two ribbons of scelp (sheet or plate metal that has been curved and welded to form a tube) are welded together. this makes for a narrow opening in which wiring cannot go through the conduit pipe. this butt weld pipe was made for residential and commercial electrical wiring. our pipe may very well be in your home right at this moment.

looking into thousands of pipe for 8 and 12 hours a day with a light on the other end for weeks at a time is incredibly tedious. but it was a job of responsibility, one I took seriously because contractors were counting on us giving them wide open pipe to string their wiring. I also was on the threading machine where we threaded the ends of the pipe so they could be coupled together to form long lengths.

in the course of 30 years (18 years old to 48 years old) I did almost all the jobs they had available. my favorite may have been running the overhead crane and also pointing cold drawn tube at our other mill a few miles away from our primary butt weld location.

that steel mill job paid me $50,000 a year and I was able to take that money and invest in other businesses to achieve the American dream.

with The Golfer in charge that dream may be a mirage for current Americans.

Yep, and when you understand that it is the GOP and their anti worker agenda will be able to see why people might think you are a racist loon when you post such derp about your made up past.

tgif111...you have struck upon one of the main issues facing the American economy.
Your metal tubing company manufactured a durable good that was needed by a variety of industries.
It created many jobs both at the site, downstream with other suppliers and customers, and surrounding area.

A college classmate of mine became a metal quarter-shear operator. He also performed a bunch of other jobs in the plant. He is now on the management side because he knows every inch of the factory floor, who is doing what, and how that impacts production. The United States needs to win back that durable good manufacturing base.

Adding service jobs like coffee baristas is nearly pointless when there is no thriving community to support the $6.00 coffees. For example, WalMart is a retailer I avoid simply because everything stocked there is low-quality junk manufactured in China using questionable materials. One does not hear of American-built goods with dioxin or lead in the paint.

you make an excellent point Eric.

Barry Obama is promoting coffee barista and Walmart jobs in the hopes of stimulating the economy. these jobs simply keep a person from starving.

the truly knowledgeable presidents of the past have helped to create QUALITY HIGH PAYING jobs and an ATMOSPHERE of optimism that is conducive to investment. the ACA and the current atmosphere make investors run and hide.

Barry The Golfer is not creating that atmosphere but is rather promoting a false sense of security by claiming the unemployment rate is 5.5%. he is like a flim flam artist or magician diverting your attention from where the hidden coin really is.

his name should be Barack Hussein Houdini because he tricks you, deceives you and fools you with his slight of hand. in the end you who are easily fooled (The Kardashian Society) clap for him because he is so slick.

the wise do not clap. we EXPOSE him for the trickster, the con artist, the deceiver he actually is.

The Wall Street Journal revealed that at least 60 companies that lobbied the State Department while Hillary was in charge funneled at least 26 million into the Clinton Foundation.

How many still believe this email scandal is no big deal?

@"Eric"


Dow Jones Industrial Average...blah, blah, blah. Liberals love the DJIA


Actually the Reagan administration used it highly as an economic benchmark
and all the Repubs chimed in on it
But now that a Black-man is the Whitehouse; all of a sudden its become a "liberal" thing

Since you are a tried & true neocon; I'm sure you have to be well off money-wise; right?
Having established that; let me ask you this:
If you have a $1 million retirement account that is invested in the stock market
would you:
A) want to have a presidency that fosters confidence in the stock market and allows it to appreciate; or
B) want to have a presidency that foments instability foreign & domestically so as to create uncertainty and fear that produces sustained bear markets?

Let me DUMB IT DOWN for you!
Do want want somebody in office whose policies are apt to deplete your investments or do you want somebody in that does the opposite!

So if YOU have any such investments put away; then ask yourself if you are better off now then back in 2007!
If you don't have a POT to piss in, then ask yourself why you vote for a party who has impoverished more pple than it has helped.


An economy is healthy when a qualified and high-achieving employee can leave a position and take an even better job through the normal interview process and rather quickly.


^this happens quite frequently here in NYC, and nearly all other major cities in the east and western seaboards


employment environment during the time of President William Jefferson Clinton's second term was excellent. That was a genuine economic boom.


Until G(ump)WB stepped into the White-house in y2k and pissed it all away culminating to what happened in 2007


The United States needs to win back that durable good manufacturing base.


Maybe you should ask the GOP why they didn't go along with the jobs bill
was it because they didn't believe that we don't need a manufacturing base;
or was because there is a Blackman in the white-house that they have to share credit with!


For example, WalMart is a retailer I avoid simply because everything stocked there is low-quality junk manufactured in China using questionable materials. One does not hear of American-built goods with dioxin or lead in the paint.


Maybe you should ask the GOp why is is so easy for "big business" to manufacture stuff overseas using "questionable" materials and importing it back here to sell to US consumers.

It would be political SUICIDE for anyone in the GOP to try to get any legislation off the ground that would compel big industry to shift their manufacturing back into the US!

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON >> Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton should fully explain her actions involving the use of a private, nongovernment email account when she was the country’s top diplomat, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said on Sunday, becoming the first major Democrat to urge Clinton to share more details of the private account.

Feinstein said the former first lady and New York senator “needs to step up and come out and say exactly what the situation was,” adding that from “this point on, the silence is going to hurt her.”

considering the Snowden leak and other leaks that revealed to allies what our diplomats really thought of them, keeping SoS emails from the normal servers might have been a good ploy. As for Clinton accepting donations, consider every former Pentagon official who's been interviewed on the news for their opinion on potential military responses to threats--how many of those retirees are on the boards or payroll of military contractors? answer:all of 'em.

As for someone who actually does have some retirement nuts squirreled away in the stock market, what really causes unrest in the markets is knowing the Legislative and Executive Branch can't agree on stupid stuff, much less balancing the budget. no one likes unplanned surprises.

ask some conservatives why jobs went overseas, and they'll blame those union jobs charging $50K a year to look up a pipe. Everyone wants to make big money then go pay WalMart prices for products made on their shift. Our great export to the world now is financial shell games like derivetives and options

Apparently tgif thinks he is the only one with justification for name-calling.

I'm still trying to figure out WTH calling someone a "racist loon" has to do with where you worked or what businesses you may have owned.

"IN THE 90'S WHEN I WORKED THE AFOREMENTIONED POINTER MACHINE AT SHARON TUBE COMPANY, A 30 YEAR EMPLOYEE."

Machinery and manufacturing processes are cool stuff. I worked in the late 70's early 80's for a company that made one-off hydraulic presses, we built a set of machines for the Navy to dismantle live 105 and 155 mm shells, so they could dump powder which they judged too old. These held the shell with hydraulic jaws and grabbed the head with another pair of jaws, then pulled upward to remove it.
Then we had to deliver and install these in a place right out of a James Bond movie, a huge ammunition depot built into a mountain near Hawthorne , Nevada. Lots of ordinance in that place. Believe it.
After that I worked making beverage can-making machines, which are amazingly high-precision, they form the metal very precisely and very fast, squeezing the steel or aluminum to a tolerance of.0001". We just pick up a can of whatever, pop the top and drink it, but the can itself probably has a lot more engineering than what is inside.
Fun stuff, machines.
