    Retail sales dropped 1.1% in March 2009.
    The Obama porkulous spending apparently isn't helping.

    Of course alot of that money so far has gone to overseas banks, so
    the reverse is happening. The US economy is starting to falter badly.

    A big drop in auto sales led the overall slump in demand. Sales also plunged at clothing stores, appliance outlets and furniture stores.


    Basically this leads to fewer jobs in the future.
    Not more.

    there are little words to say how dumb that post was...retail sales drop1.1% because of Obama? How about they only went down 1.1% because of Obama? what? That's just as possible...and I would suggest far more likely then it went down because of him. but go take some simple econ classes, and come back when you get a clue what you are talking about .
    class dismissed.

    Funny how you never seem to be able to read what's there without adding in your own spin to it, and then attacking the spin you created.

    Did it say retail sales dropped 1.1% because of Obama? No it did not. It said they had dropped 1.1% even though Obama passed his pork filled stealfromus package.

    The point was, as conservatives and economists have said many times, before, during, and after the porkulus bill was passed: It will not help. And shockingly... it hasn't helpped.

    And this isn't the first time this idiocy has been tried, and had the same negative effect. When FDR passed his New Deal, the result was a massive plunge in our economy, and keep us in the depression for several years longer.

    More recently, when European Union, and several other nations, all passed massive bailouts in their respective economies, the same negative effect happened. So now we have foolishly tried it here, and shockingly had the exact same negative effect.

    Funny how history and examples around the world all say to not plug your fingers in the power outlets, and yet stupid Americans demand to give it a try.... it might work this time!! ZZZZAP!
