Summer of recovery coming along nicely — Economy still failing

The Rasmussen Consumer Index, which measures the economic confidence of consumers on a daily basis, dropped three points on Friday, falling to its lowest reading since January 15. At 72.8, the Consumer Index is down five points from the beginning of the year and is now just one point above the 2010 low.

Among all adults nationwide, just 9% rate the economy as good or excellent, down three points from the beginning of the year. A quarter (23%) of adults feel economic conditions in the country are getting better, an eight point decline since the year began.

Among investors, 9% rate the economy as good or excellent and 26% believe the economy is getting better. Fifty-five percent (55%) of investors believe the economy is getting worse.

Extra credit question, does this dumb jug eared jackass think people are so stupid they can’t figure him out? His Hugo Chavez commie act is now falling on death ears.

Fire Booms Neglected In Oil Containment And Cleanup?

June 15, 2010

MSNBC May 3, 2010: 1994 plan called for them, but scramble is on to find some:

As the Gulf Coast oil spill response team scrambled on Monday to get special fire booms to corral and then burn the slick, key questions surfaced: Were any of those booms even in the area? And if not, should they have been, given a 1994 plan produced for federal agencies to deal with such a scenario?

The Coast Guard did not immediately respond to phone calls by msnbc.com about whether spill response plans required having fire booms nearby. The Press-Register of Mobile, Ala., reported Monday that no booms were available immediately after the Deepwater Horizon rig sank and started leaking oil on April 22.

Despite the fact that the federal plan of 1994 for oil spill and containment required fire booms be stocked, ready for immediate use, there were none in federal stock at the time of the spill.

Health Insurance Premiums Would Rise Under Obama Plan, AP ‘Fact Check’ Says

March 17, 2010

Buyers, beware: President Barack Obama says his health care overhaul will lower premiums by double digits, but check the fine print.

Premiums are likely to keep going up even if the health care bill passes, experts say. If cost controls work as advertised, annual increases would level off with time. But don’t look for a rollback. Instead, the main reason premiums would be more affordable is that new government tax credits would help cover the cost for millions of people.

Sniff, and Obama-bub just yesterday told his useful idiot voters they would see a 3000% drop in there health insurance premiums, across all our 57 States. Welcome to Obammunism, were lies are the norm.
