(I know. That post title makes me sound a little like Jeff Foxworthy.  ‘If the economy is improving, you MIGHT be a redneck.’ )

The folks over at The Economic Collapse blog have come up with a great set of arguments — with credible sourcing — for you to use on Democrats and their mainstream media minions who are claiming the economy is getting better JUST IN TIME for BarryO’s reelection campaign:

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 do only 23 percent of American companies plan to hire more employees in 2012?

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.

  1. well any liberal will tell you the answer to all of those is quite simple: “it’s all george bush’s fault, thats why.”

    …of course they won’t have any actual facts to back that up, but if facts were actually important, there wouldn’t be any liberals.
