Happy 100 Daze: Obama Economy Shrinks 6.1%

The economy shrinks at 6.1% while Obama's spending and ego increases exponentially. Of course he'll blame Bush and the media will give him a free pass, although it should be the last one he gets.

Put on your big boy pants now, Mr. Presidunce, and take some responsibility for once in your life.
The U.S. economy contracted at a surprisingly sharp 6.1 percent rate in the first quarter as exports and business inventories plummeted.

The drop in gross domestic product, reported by the Commerce Department on Wednesday, was much steeper than the 4.9 percent annual rate expected by economists and followed a 6.3 percent decline in the fourth quarter.

GDP, which measures total goods and services output within U.S. borders, has now dropped for three straight quarters for the first time since 1974-1975.
Curiously missing from this 19-paragraph story? The name Barack Obama.

C'mon. The guy gets credit for everything from the sun rising to the sun setting, and he's not even mentioned in this story? Just a hunch, but I'll go out on a limb and say that if the economy showed improvement Obama would be getting all the credit. Instead, things worsen and his name isn't mentioned.
