    I can't wait to read it.

    When the Washington Post says they are very good, you know it's just gotta be true!

    Musta hurt their editors pretty badly to print such a thing...
    He was comparing Obama's first year in office when the recession was in full swing vs. Trump first year when the ongoing trend of unemployment dropped.

    It does not take a rocket scientist to know those are 2 very different scenario's.

    Basically said the same thing as the BLS did - "The US added 148,00 jobs in December, a lagging end to a year of growth".
    But, the "first years job numbers were very, very good" according to the Washington Times.

    That must piss some people off.

    I'm just happy that Americas economy and stock markets are doing very well, aren't you?

    Or are you one of those who want everything to go badly so you can blame Trump?

    There are lots of those people, ya know...

    Im one of those who sees trumps policies turning the US into a third world country, and giving China a leg up on the climb to world leadership. And for what? To enrich the already wealthy few.

    Like Obamas "open borders" weren't already making us a third world country?

    Like Hillary wasn't going to do the same?

    She was going to be Obamas third term, ya know, except more of a warmonger.

    What happened? (Hillary STILL doesn't know)

    America got to vote on it, that's what.

    You say "Obama's third term" like it would be a bad thing.

    (And then tout the great economy left for Trump to take undeserved credit for...)
