Who gets credit for the recovery?
New York Times, by Dave Leonard

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 10/28/2012 6:47:42 AM

Washington--The housing bust finally seems to be over. Health care costs have slowed. The unemployment rate has fallen below 8 percent, much sooner than forecasters were predicting a few months ago. Consumer confidence has reached a post-recession high. (Snip)President Obama and his aides quietly chafe at the idea that Mitt Romney would be able to take credit for a recovery. Publicly, Mr. Obama has begun to emphasize the economic good news in recent weeks. Mr. Romney, for his part, has said he expects the economy to improve early in his presidency, not because of his policies but because of optimism

Comments:
My own feeling is that people are banking on a Romney win.

NYT propaganda. There is no recovery. By asking who gets credit for the recovery, attention is shifted from the lack of a recovery to a sophomoric game of who do we thank for the recovery. Lenin would be proud. Is this Dave Leonard guy related to Walter Duranty, I wonder?

The title resumes that there has been a recovery. Technically, perhaps there has, but the economy is barely growing, the jobless are still out of work, the dollar is shrinking, and peoples net worth is decreasing. So I say give Obama full credit!

Trucker Observation: There is no recovery except in the minds of Obama pimps. The NYT makes up fact to support their libtards world vision. However, on main street there are still 23 million Americans looking for work. In our babies' rooms they face a $16 trillion dollar debt (plus interest) that must be repaid to China. No Dave Leonard NO ONE gets any credit for the mess we gave to our kids.

Even the liberal press (except for NY Times) has admitted that the reason unemployment was reported to be below 8% was that an Obama supporter and state employment officer in California failed to report unemployment numbers in that state last month.

Maybe the 'recovery' is at the New York Times, where their stock price had dropped 22 percent in 85 percent lowered earnings.

From the article:
"The unemployment rate has fallen below 8 percent, much sooner than forecasters were predicting a few months ago"

What a pathetic attempt to take credit for such a meager achievement, indeed one that probably involved cooking the books.

And declaring victory based on surpassing the expectations of forecasters a few months ago??

Economic growth is anemic at best, no higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, which in turn was lower than in 2010. Fewer people working, more on disability, unemployment, food stamps, etc.

Only in the eyes of the NYT and similar illusionists is this considered a recovery.

Things started looking up after the October 3 debate when Romney broke the media's stranglehold on his chances to unseat Obama.
I'm more confident about the future because it looks like our 4-year national nightmare in the White House is going to be over next January 20th, how about you?

Just left NC were gas has dropped to around $3.25 in the last three weeks. The local news is making a big deal about it but I can't imagine it helping sway any votes.

However, my answer to the headline is, what recovery?

Recovery? When millions have lost jobs and have dropped out of the labor force, the number of unemployed can appear to be "below 8%" when it's really 14% or higher. This allows the Democrats to claim a recovery is in place, but the GDP and the rate of growth is still abyssmal.

There is no recovery unless you cut the population in half and count only the employed and new housing starts.

I can see Obozo after Romney wins the presidency and the economy does take off saying, "See, I told you it was and you should have given me more time". To that Romney needs to tell the American people that the recovery is due to the optimisism of the American people that we together can make things better by getting rid of Obamacare, all the nutty regs that Obozo and his admin put in place. We, the people. Not we, the government.

There is no recovery. I still know three people living in their homes waiting for the foreclosure to finally kick them out. Not one of them has paid a dime on their mortgage for the last two and a half years; one couple, it is four years. They all bought houses they could not afford (thanks to Barney Frank), and they took as much money out of them as they could, and now they are living in them for free. Yet, they spend all their money on vacations, clothes, and tattoos.

This is pure optimism of Romney winning. If Obie squeaks out a win with the voter fraud troops he's put out there, the economy will tank hard!

Watch your voting machine, in Texas we've had numerous reports of votes for Romney getting 'automatically' switched to Obie. Something really smells.

Right now, I'd say the MSM, since the 'recovery' exists only on their pages. The MSM gets full credit for reporting fiction, and pushing a meme that is an obvious fantasy.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement
Takes Hold in Some States

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
