How many times do you have to be told that the feds said every quarter, that the economy was too weak and fragile to raise interest rates.

The stock market recovery has nothing to do with the state of the economy.

It took 8 years to basically bring things back to normal. Reduced taxes, Removing regulations, and achieving energy independence, is what has made this economy strong.

Question.....about a year ago Democrats were saying ( and praying ) that a recession was coming. It never came, but would you and the left have blamed Obama? or Trump? if it had come to fruition?

To deny that the economy boom benefited the average American only after the Obama restraints istoignore theobvius truths. Get you battery checked.

One can always torture statistics to give up and say what you want. But the overall positive change in both real dollars and public confidence rose in direct proportion to the evaporation of Obama vapors in the White house.

To call that a coincidence of timing makes one wonder how the former President pulled it off and,,,; why.

Poor angry tangerine man.....
He's very fragile and vindictive for a guy his followers claim is a straight-shooting rock of testosterone.

Vindictive? sure! Fragile? that's hilarious, very few people on the planet could withstand what he has taken in stride.

He is a lot of things.....Fragile is NOT one of them.

Fragile/// That's a laugh. right now his ego is solid and well fueled by the buoyancy of acclamations from Conservatives, Independents and Republicans. A crowd that is rapidly growing as the Democratic popularity shrinks.

Some polls are revealing the GOP now has a larger portion of the electorate that it has had for decades.

A multitude of things could be causing this drift. Trump’s job approval rating has been trending upward. This meaning that more Americans are comfortable with winning. And believing this is because Trump and the Republicans are in charge. The Democrat’s impeachment attempts have not gone over well either, and the Iowa debacle made them seem even more inept, and corruptible.

I believe we are witnessing election fatigue. As Democrats have been wheeled out, again and again, for Debates, the DNC further exposes their weaknesses and that is dividing campaign supporters. Many who supported candidates who have dropped out due to not qualifying for the debate stage may also feel cheated thanks to the rule bend by the DNC to allow Mike Bloomberg to come in with boat loads of cash.

Changing the rules seems to be a continual trend of the lefties. And they now control the DNC madness.

The Coming Presidential election is THE Donald's to lose. But, like most of his supporters, old and new, he is not yet tired of WINNING!

My prediction;;;
Four more years of impeachment attempts lie ahead, but short of an assasination, he is and will still be our President.
