Obama's Recession
— Ace

As the media will obviously not be calling this Obama's Recession, or even a recession, what alternate names can we suggest for them?

What do you guys think of "Boehner's Boner"?


Wake Up, America

Ya been had three times now.


"Best-Looking Contraction in US GDP You'll Ever See:" The Democrats really said this, and White House shill Brad Woodhouse tweeted it out.

27 If only there was a state out there that might give the country some guidance on how to manage growth and potentially a surplus. You know a state that may take a different approach to government than the federal government which has failed for years. Low taxes, cutting spending, exploiting natural resources, tort reform. Those all sound good in theory, but it would be nice if we could test them out and see if they would work at the national level.

60 Boehner will look like a genius by the end of the year.

First, he gets 99% of Bush tax cuts made permanent while getting Obama to own the economy with his “victory” Meanwhile, there have been some bad signs in Europe.

Today, Drudgereport announces: “GDP Shows Surprise Drop for U.S. in Fourth Quarter” and “GDP -0.1%…”

$165 billion in Q4 stimulus could not even generate a positive GDP return

I suggest that Republicans stay in disarray so Obama can own DC and the economy.

Everything Unexpectedly Much Worse

Posted by: Jones in CO at January 30, 2013 05:47 AM (8sCoq)

66

Here's the release from the American Bankers Association:

 


The decline in the fourth quarter was driven primarily by reduced government spending, inventory drawdown and drag from exports. Federal defense spending fell at a 22% annual rate in the fourth quarter, producing a 1.3% drag on GDP growth. The cuts came primarily from outlays other than military personnel, suggesting that the military has been preparing for the looming sequestration.

The drawdown on inventories provided a 1.3% drag on growth in the fourth quarter, however is a positive sign for growth going forward. As inventories decline, it means more is being consumed than is being produced. This means that in coming months production will need to be ramped up to meet demand and rebuild inventories.

Finally, net exports provided a 0.3% drag on growth as continued weakness overseas hampers our growth.

Despite the strong declines in a number of categories, the fundamentals actually improved in the third quarter. Personal consumption added 1.5% to GDP growth, up from 1.1% the previous quarter. Fixed investment also improved notably, rising to 1.2% from 0.1% the previous quarter. Both residential investment and non-residential investment improved. These two areas are where we can see sustainable growth and will be the pillar of a sustainable recovery. Their continued strength suggests the fourth quarter results are unlikely to be repeated.

It is early (to me).  I work from home, self-employed, and until recently used to stay up really late (2, 3, 4 am).  Got by on 4-6 hours a sleep every night, some days better than others.  But starting Jan 1, I decided to make sleep a priority and I try to get to bed by midnight now. Have to say it's great to feel well rested every day.  Anyway, I'll always have empathy for the late nighters.

148 The radio news made a big point that it's only a relative decrease, since gummint spending was SO BIG in the earlier quarters. Factoring that out, the private growth rate would have been almost an incendiary (!) 2%.

150 Honestly, if these numbers had come out before the election, would it have mattered?  I hope I'm wrong, but it looks like Democrats have enough parasites now that could care less about the economy and they don't have to even pay lip service to the private sector anymore.

185 - Re genuine request for elaboration.

 

Just a gut feeling.   My gut tells me that the uncertainty of the fiscal cliff coupled with the uncertainty of sequestration caused a lot of pull-back in the private economy and slow-down in defense spending in 4Q 2012.   I don't think it bounces back in any big way, but I'd expect some bounce due to slightly decreased uncertainty, with slow growth in 1Q 2013. 

 

That's short term, of course.   In the long term, WE'RE BONED.

I can't speak for Sven,
But the bailout of Blue states is going to subtly happen through things like "Medicaid expansion" and "High Speed Rail."

We're already seeing this.  California wants to hand out healthcare to everyone, it can't afford it, so the Federal government steps in and offers to pick up the "expansion tab" for 4 years (or in Government speak: Forever really, we're just lying about the limits.)

Do I think Obummer's going to jump down and say "Bam, here's 20 billion to you blue state, and 20 billion to you!"  No, but he's going to use the federal budget to plug holes in states budgets, which is just f'ing wrong.

317 If you want to get the idea into the press that some kind of Obama-related depressive economic thing is happening, you have to start calling the depressive economic thing something "racist"--or even racist, because then it can be funny (there's an Alinsky rule about that).

"Zimbabwe"-related stuff won't work, because people have heard "Zimbabwe" too many times. An obscure slur would work best. The media loves to teach its fans what's racist--and people love to be told what's racist. Remember "macaca."

So, pick one. There are lists of all the world's slurs on internet, because the internet is helpful. Take one off a list, make sure it fits, and weld it to an economic term. Then say that shit a million times.

Eventually, the OUTRAGE!d will mention your idea. Right now, you don't even have that. Only OUTRAGE! can get conservative words (e.g., "death panels") through the media's filter, and you haven't generated any OUTRAGE!. People have no idea (except their own lying-eyes idea, which doesn't count, because they can't join it) that the world is econo-boned--or that anyone admits it's boned.

sven,

I believe that the Jordanthetroll types have all suddenly realized that banging their lefty fascist anti America fists on the table over lattes is far different than actually attempting to control and disarm a heavily armed red populace.

Even in divorce proceedings, it is wise to give the other party some type of "out" . Hopelessly backed into a corner is a position that permits only one result.

Yes,   this  country  would  be much  better off  if we followed  libertarian-conservative  views.  Happy  to promote them.  Quite  confident  I have  never  promoted any  anarchist  viewpoints.  I  much  prefer  a  government  that  is more libertarian, particularly  with  respect to the private sector.  And  I much  prefer a populace that is conservative with conservative values and respect for all forms of life.  And I think the  red  states  are  basically  leading the way.  Obviously the federal  government  has not followed this path.  But I ultimately  think that the success of the red states, the failure of the blue states will cause  the federal  government to  change its ways.  We will have a lot to undo, but it can be done.

Of course, that would cause more GDP contraction in the short term because the government is a large chunk of GDP, but it is the most worthless chunk.

 

I doubt we'd see more than one quarter of continued decline once that started. Most people have no idea just how big a drag this administration is  putting on the economy, or government in general.

 

F'rinstance, by the time  one tax dollar   manages to make it's way back into  the economy, it has already lost some 40% of its  value. Add in the increasing cost of compliance of  tens of thousands of new and largely unnecessary regulations (look at the price of groceries since ethanol was mandated)  and you'll start to see the tip of the iceberg  that the MFM refuses  to tell you about.

Adding stainless spurs actually makes the fight quicker and more humane. Besides, It's a chicken. Not a dog, a chicken. Have you seen how they raise and kill chickens for human consumption? Their Chickens were treated like prize fighters. The best food, exercised, warm clean coops, vet checked. The life of a fighting rooster is a heck of a lot more humane then the ones in the KFC bucket. Just sayin.

I've been way off base and now can admit there is no need to see his transcripts, as the media explains his intellectual prowess 24/7....Thanks New York Times for pointing this out....my bad.

425 Just wait until 11 million new Mexican citziens are eligible for welfare. That's when the economy will really start to boom.

429 Now that there's nearly no one alive who lived through the Depression, our ruling class creates another one. No coincidence there.

As for bailing out California, you guys have been doing that for years. Bush bailed out our ERs, going broke thanks to illegal aliens, and we borrowed $10B so far for unemployment.

Thanks!

430 The life of a fighting rooster is a heck of a lot more humane then the ones in the KFC bucket. Just sayin.

It isn't about the chickens. It's about the inhumanity of it, the depravity. You're okay with a spectacle that features a fight to the death and excites bloodlust in spectators? It's cruel, vicious, and mean, just plain wrong on every level, and degrades all who participate in it. And hey, if you're okay with roosters killing each other for public enjoyment, how about dog fighting? Is that okay? They're just dogs, after all.

 

And before you say 'boxing', stop right there. I've boxed (as an amateur). It is a sport, and it ain't called the 'sweet science' for nothing.

431 173 1Q 2013 probably won't show a contraction, so it technically won't be a recession, even if the -0.1% holds up for 4Q 2012, which it probably won't after the inevitable revisions.

That being said, it's also fair to say that this is no long a recovery, but is simply a "new normal"... the stagnant staggering clusterf*** of a miserable failed economy.

They always revise "down", never "up". That -0.1% will drop to a -0.5% when they revise later on.


2012 Q4 retail sales were "disappointing" and barely budged over 2011. Just in my neighborhood half of the restaruants have closed in the past month, and these are long time ones, not new ones, and no new ones have opened. Hell, even the Hooters in town closed, and when sleezy skanks in tank tops and too small shorts can't sell warm beer and mediocre wings, the economy is in the shitter and not getting better.

The good news, is you'll die young enough to leave a good looking corpse.

Posted by: troyriser at January 30, 2013 12:08 PM (vtiE6) It's a chicken, not a dog. It's a cultural thing like bullfighting. I don't do it. I don't raise them. I have been to Two, count them, Two fights. I'm sayin it's not as bad as you imagine.

438 The rich already have enough money. It is about time they feel the pain the rest of us have because of Bush. I hope the rich do worse, that way the economy will grow for the middle class. Raise taxes more Mr. presdent and we will be fine.......

443 One is reminded of the old joke about the guy who fell from a tall building and all the way down kept saying to himself, "So far so good … so far so good....  It's not about how you fall.   It's about how you land."

Hope and Change.
