Did the Nazi's try and impeach Hitler? No? Then why think the Republicans will try and impeach Der Trumper? Want to get rid of Der neu Fuhrer? Stop voting Nazi.

 

As for economic growth, Der Trumper hasn't even passed a budget yet - all the programs effecting the economy are from the last Obama budget which just expired in September, so every good thing Lemontop is claiming for himself was created by President Obama's programs.

Didn`t happen once---First President to ever  not to see 3% growth in any year of his Presidency.-Google it.

 

Ed said, "Didn`t happen once'.

 

We're dealing with Trump Cult members who are not good at using FACTS, so we have to carefully and slowly repeat what was said. There were 8 different QUARTERLY reports of 3% or more. I did not say annual. 

 

And while we're at it, let's not forget the following.

  • The value of the stock market under Obama more than TRIPLED
  • The Obama Administration set multiple records for job growth.

Guess it depends on whose numbers you're googling. I see three quarters that it went above 3% here (Q3-14, Q1-15, Q2-15). These stats get updated over time as more information and data is analysed. That may account for some differences. It's explained if you follow the links within the page.

And by the way . . . 

 

"The ideal GDP growth rate is between 2-3%. Less than 2% will not create new jobs for the growing labor force. More than 3% means the economy is headed toward an asset bubble. This generally creates inflation and rising prices. Sometimes higher prices will cool off demand. More often, the bubble bursts, and the economy descends into recession."

Hey, jim, did you notice the whacko lefties and their whacko financier are talking impeachment while the average American is looking at the second quarter of 3% growth in the economy - and smiling. 

 

As I recall there was a topic bemoaning the horrible economy in September. It was of course the result of hurricanes, but no matter the answer was "Trump sucks". I wonder if the poster of that will now say, "Oooops!!".


Did you notice that the whacko righties claim that Obama has the worst record on GDP when he had several quarters that exceeded the 3% (including 2 that exceeded 4%) they are bragging up for Trump?

@ChasKy53 - Gallup has it at 33% as of today - a new low, just now on CNN.
