<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The Commerce Department's new reading on gross domestic product wasn't as energetic as the 3.5 percent growth rate for the July-September period estimated just a month ago.
The main factors behind the downgrade: consumers didn't spend as much, commercial construction was weaker and the nation's trade deficit was more of a drag on growth. Businesses also trimmed more of their stockpiles, another restraining factor.</div></div>

I said the 3.5% growth number was a cooked one when it was released.

Turns out ... it was.

Of course, with an $878 slush fund to enrich themselves with, the union government jobs are the only beneficiaries and their primary function is to reelect their benefactors. The Moron is in a race to enlarge his dependent base before the Teapartiers have a chance to throw him out. I hope some of it trickles down to the rest of the country but that is not the objective.
