    Big picture: The solid rise in third-quarter growth despite the hurricanes shows things are looking up for the economy. Over the past few years, a 3% growth rate in a one quarter would typically be followed by a 1% rate in the next three-month period. Economists think growth may be over 3% in the fourth quarter due to rebuilding from the storms. The strong economic growth will bolster arguments of Federal Reserve officials who want the central bank to raise interest rates again in December.

    SIMPLY THE WORST=> Obama is First President Ever to Not See Single Year of 3% GDP Growth.

    Assuming 2.67% RGDP growth for 2016, Obama will leave office having produced an average of 1.55% growth. This would place his presidency fourth from the bottom of the list of 39*, above only those of Herbert Hoover (-5.65%), Andrew Johnson (-0.70%) and Theodore Roosevelt (1.41%)http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/201...rst-president-ever-not-see-single-year-3-gdp/

    No problemo with that loser Obama. :lmao:

    Let's wait and see how Trump does over the long term, one quarter doesn't mean much.

    Clinton 3.9 average GDP
    Reagan 3.5
    No one else topped 3.

    The Obama administration couldn't even put together two 3+ percent quarters. We have a higher goal than that. We're looking to put together several YEARS of 3+ percent growth.
    Hop on the Trump train to prosperity for the nation,........it's going to be a nice smooth ride.

    Obama can claim victory in the GDP statistics because he's only fourth from the bottom, because when it comes to overall statistics, he's dead last, even below Carter.

    Chalk up a success for Obama......:bgroovy:

    Yes I did. I gave him several months to prove that my predictions of him were correct. Then I released the hounds.
    The Fast and Furious scandal between him and Eric "Rat Face" Holder was the final straw. When Obama proved that he wasn't going to do anything about it, that proved what kind of douche bag he was.

    Well, that's where I am with Trump, other than the economy(partly inherited) I think he is taking my country in the wrong direction. YOMV.

    That's just you and a few others. When Obama was at the helm, 73% of the citizens felt that America was heading in the wrong direction.
    Obama's failures and a crooked Democrat candidate gave us Trump.

    Trump's disapproval rating is at 60% , even with fox news polling. So it's probably not just me and a few others.

    Actually the polls were pretty damn close.

    "Jan 19, 2017 - Clinton did, in fact, win the national popular vote by 2.1 points. The average of the 13 final national polls had Clinton ahead by 3.1 points"

    Wrong. I remember full well what they were reporting leading up to the election. And they were reporting that Hillary was crushing Trump in the polls. Then at the last minute the pollsters saw what was happening, then finally started reporting how the polls had tightened and it was a close race, but that was near the last week. They were playing mind games with the voters, trying to let the Trump voters know that they had no chance of winning.

    "Jan 19, 2017 - Clinton did, in fact, win the national popular vote by 2.1 points. The average of the 13 final national polls had Clinton ahead by 3.1 points"[/QUOTE]
    We heard for months how Hillary was destroying Trump in the polls, which was fraud and a lie because the pollsters hand picked the areas that they were polling, and always polled more Democrats than Republicans.

    By the way, "the national popular vote" wasn't the prize that Trump coveted.

    She was crushing him and then right before the election Comey said he was reopening the investigation on Hillary and the gap closed.

    Of course Trump wanted everyone to believe he really won the popular vote, his over sized ego couldn't let that go.

    And this is one reason Hitlery lost, her base thought they had it in the bag and didn't need to vote. Our own media had more to do with her losing than...the Russians did.

    Was she actually crushing him in the polls?
    The media and the pollsters we're obviously biased for Hillary.
    Neither of them have an ounce of credibility now.
    Did the Comey thing hurt the crook in the polls? Yep. As it should have. In fact, she should have been indicted before she got out of the primaries. Comey proved that she deserved it.
    Better late than never I guess.

    Yep. The media lying to the Hillary voters helped Trump.

    Shame on them for their lack of journalistic integrity.
