Democrats Are Either Misinformed Or Insane...

If you ever needed proof that democrats are misinformed and insane here is the statistical proof.
Rasmussen reported Sunday that democrats honestly believe the economy is better today than one year ago: http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/business/index...

Over the past year, overall levels of consumer confidence have bounced around a lot but ended up with little change. For the full month June 2008, the Rasmussen Consumer Index was at 71.9. In June, 2009, that number was 72:0.

But underneath those stable topline numbers is a dramatic shift along party lines. A year ago, Republicans were far more confident than Democrats. Today, the reverse is true.

Among Democrats, the Rasmussen Consumer Index jumped from 53.7 a year ago to 79.5 in 2009.

Among Republicans, confidence was at 99.4 a year ago and it’s fallen to 68.6 today.

As for those not affiliated with either major party, there’s been little change.

So, democrats say the economy is better off today.
OK. Lets look at at a few sets of numbers.

The US lost over 2.5 million jobs in the first four months of this year under the Obama Administration.
The US unemployment rate rose from 7.6% to 9.5% under Obama... the highest rate in 26 years.

Bureau of Labor Statistics- via Sweetness and Light: http://sweetness-light.com/archive/ap-jobless-rate-slows-hits...

The US has lost 16,000 jobs each day since Democrats passed their non-Stimulus bill, the largest redistribution of wealth from the private sector to government officials in US history.

National Deficit:

Obama will more than quadruple the US budget deficit his first year in office.

Gross Domestic Product Growth:
obama quadruple budget deficit year office gross domestic product growth

By any measurement, GDP growth is far below what it was last year. Gross Domestic Product fell at a 5.5 per cent annual rate in 2009's first financial quarter.

The stock market is down 3,000 points from a year ago. And, the crash did not hit the economy until September.

In the real world the economy is a disaster.
And, with all of the irresponsible spending by democrats most economists understand that we will likely see a huge rise in inflation.

Those who believe things are better than a year ago are either misinformed, ignorant, or lying...Or, a combination of all three.

    I think they are just trying to convince themselves that Obama is doing a good job. They will never admit to making the mistake of voting for him. He could nuke his own country and libs would still call him the greatest ever.

    However these terms may be a little hard for the 0bamabots to handle, In their mind I guess they're close to achieving Nirvana.

    The Democrats have an agenda and will not recognize any contradictory evidence. The spin is on and enough voters believe the Democrats to encourage the claims made by them.

    Insane or misinformed . But in reality they forgot to watch the news and listen to the one Obama does not want you to hear from on wonder how the libtards will translate this in their heads with the generic prozac they will be forced to take with the new socialized medicine and prescription programs they will be forced to take .

    well libtards are good at lying but if they believe the ones being fed by the white house then they are insane...as is anyone else who believes that the economy is getting better..facts are facts.. just like Obama sat in a racist, marxist church for 20 years without once taking issue with racism and hate..the facts are that he is a racist for he condoned it for 20 years as did his wife.. truth that is.. but libtards do not recognize truth.. they prefer fairytales and lala land.
