The Republican Party, led by their same ol’ Neocon establishment and conveniently-fronted by their rabid Dick Armey-cultured pet Tea Party anti0reconstruction segregationist Confederate Obstructionists have failed to tank the U.S. economy. Despite all they’ve done to drown it in their bile, President Obama has yet again proven that when your opponent weighs you down with every rock in their quarry, slow and steady will ALWAYS win the race.
Endless budget deal sabotage? FAIL.
Obstruct Jobs bills at every turn? FAIL.
Prevent minimum wage increase and deny workers healthcare? FAIL.
Obstruct and filibuster everything Obama has tried to do? FAIL.
Holding our nation hostage and starving her children? FAIL.
The right wing leading this dead elephant of a party has done EVERYTHING they can to damage the economy of the U.S. and even sabotage our foreign policy, putting Americans in clear and present danger at home and abroad in order to con us all into placing the blame for their actions on our President. Calling him a Communist. Drooling unabashed racism and praying to the shadows their hopes come from that an angry white war criminal can again lead them into doom. But, it didn’t work.
The Commerce Department revised their 3rd quarter numbers, bringing the US GDP’s rise from 3.6% to a blazing 4.1%. As the Washington Post Reports:
This stunning rise is the second highest rise in a quarter’s GDP growth since the recession started in 2007, only eclipsed by 2011′s Christmas 4th quarter. This is amazing, especially the nefarious roadblocks put up by the Republican party to prevent it from ever having happened. Some of it has to do with inventory, but regardless, this is excellent news. A very good Christmas present from a President who has chosen not to give up under the greatest of adversities and is going to be remembered for it.
