If the Economy is Getting Better Then Why Are We Still in a Recession?

All the rosy predictions and phony claims of the Obama Spinmeisters just don't add up!

Before Obama's State of the Union Address campaign speech last week I recommended readers print out the graph "Obama Presidency by the Numbers" and put it next to your television set. Later I posted a similar chart along with one showing the growing dependence of Americans on welfare. Print any or all of these out and annoy your liberal friends. They'll start spinning so fast to try and explain away the numbers they will get dizzy and fall down. It's fun to watch!

Well, here's another in that series which while not a graphic, contains the links to each section so liberals in economic denial can look up the information themselves. But don't expect them to do so. They have become conditioned to expect other people (the government) to do things for them so you may have to click the links if they balk at the info.

From the Economic Collapse:
There are some "bright spots" in the economy, and you are bound to run into family and friends that will repeat to you the nonsense that they are hearing on the television about how the economy is recovering. When they try to convince you that the economy is getting better, ask them these questions....

If the economy is getting better, then why did new home sales in the United States hit a brand new all-time record low during 2011?

If the economy is getting better, then why are there 6 million less jobs in America today than there were before the recession started?

If the economy is getting better, then why is the average duration of unemployment in this country close to an all-time record high?

If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of homeless female veterans more than doubled?

If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of Americans on food stamps increased by 3 million since this time last year and by more than 14 million since Barack Obama entered the White House?

If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of children living in poverty in America risen for four years in a row?

If the economy is getting better, then why is the percentage of Americans living in "extreme poverty" at an all-time high?

If the economy is getting better, then why is the Federal Housing Administration on the verge of a financial collapse?

If the economy is getting better, then why do only 23 percent of American companies plan to hire more employees in 2012?

If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of self-employed Americans fallen by more than 2 million since 2006?

If the economy is getting better, then why did an all-time record low percentage of U.S. teens have a job last summer?

If the economy is getting better, then why does median household income keep declining? Overall, median household income in the United States has declined by a total of 6.8% since December 2007 once you account for inflation.

If the economy is getting better, then why has the number of Americans living below the poverty line increased by 10 million since 2006?

If the economy is getting better, then why is the average age of a vehicle in America now sitting at an all-time high?

If the economy is getting better, then why are 18 percent of all homes in the state of Florida currently sitting vacant?

If the economy is getting better, then why are 19 percent of all American men between the ages of 25 and 34 living with their parents?

If the economy is getting better, then why does the number of "long-term unemployed workers" stay so high? When Barack Obama first took office, the number of "long-term unemployed workers" in the United States was approximately 2.6 million. Today, that number is sitting at 5.6 million.
And if your liberal friends start spinning to the point of dizziness do them a favor and help them to a chair. Or not!
