3-22-09 GOP answer to my claim Bush Recession is over...America is doomed under Obama
Mark today on the Calendar. 3-20-2009
I am declaring the Bush Recession over.
Three main reasons:
1) Corporations cut to skeletal staffing that they can't get day to day operations done so they are in a panic and have to hire like crazy.
2) Interest rates at WWII levels will spur all kinds of movement from housing to manufacturing.
3) Obama and his boys did everything they possibly can to get the country past the destruction done by Bush and his cabal.Real Time Link of Job Cuts

For far too long I was told none of this was happening on a Republican crazed website.
Now news reports show what I've been saying for more than a year that job losses were occuring every month.
The Republican whackos on the other site said jobs were more plentiful than ever and wages were rising. They are clearly on some kind of drugs.
I don't frequent there anymore.
1-9-2009 Job losses stack up as recession deepens
Trying to survive a deepening recession, employers are cutting their work forces to the bone, leaving more Americans unemployed and with dim prospects of finding a new job any time soon.
The Labor Department releases a report Friday expected to show the employment market turned worse in December, capping a year when job losses were logged every month.
With employers throttling back hiring, the unemployment rate is expected to jump from 6.7 percent in November to 7 percent in December, according to economists' forecasts. If they are right, that would mark the highest jobless rate in 15- 1/2 years.
This week alone, drugstore operator Walgreen Co., managed care provider Cigna Corp., aluminum producer Alcoa Inc., data-storage company EMC Corp. and computer products maker Logitech International all announced major layoffs to cope with the recession.
The U.S. recession, which just entered its second year, is already the longest in a quarter century, and is likely to stretch on well into this year
