I am saying that GDP without any context is not a good indicator of real growth. 1.6% is excellent when you put into context the number of businesses closed because of the Bush Recession, the number of people without out jobs as a consequence of the Bush Recession (the impacts of which were felt long into Obama's first term), and the number of people who eventually just feel out of the employment market all together because they couldn't find jobs for an extended period of time.
1.6% growth is great when you look at what it could have been (and would have been had the Republicans had their way).
Continue that line of reasoning, Muffin... I'm judging you. Harshly.
You get the respect you give. And if you're a Republican, you b*tch about paybacks being a b*tch. So sorry you're mad your guy is getting the respect you gave ours, Snowflakes.
