    For now. But keep an eye on it. When the euphoria wears off, it could be bad.

    If we were running on all 16 cylinders, engines of the economy purring, he's still a disgusting PIG and would still be a disgrace.

    He has done nothing to hurt it either. If the economy is doing good consistently it will be hard to make a case Trump has nothing to do with it. Since Obama blamed Bush for the economy he inherited and took credit for it improving, Trump can certainly take credit like Obama did.

    If obama pathologically lied..like saying the president of Mexico called him to praise him, and the head of the Boy Scouts said his speech was the best ever.....wouldn't you be upset?
    Are you praising Trump for this great economy? If the answer is yes then I will praise Obama for his great economy. I think its more about politics with you and the rest of the Democrats. Russia is your parties Birther movement

    right, and he is continuing to make it grow. Is that a bad thing? Or is it a bad thing because its Trump doing it.

    How was the economy after six months into the Obama admin, much worse than now, what were his numbers after six months?

    Thx
    That's your opinion, that's about it. Stock market is an all time high. Unemployment is very low and the future looks good. It will be hard to blame Trump for anything while people have jobs and their stock portfolios continue to grow.

    There is still a few hold outs like McCain that were bought off by the Democrats. The ACA is caving in, so once is gone those represenatives will have to face those that elected them and tell them they did nothing to save their healthcare. Its just a matter of time, we are willing to wait for the meltdown
