    You might want to look at were that money came from during the Reagan years and since you love the GDP numbers so much, look at our last 5 year numbers verse Reagan's first 5 years. You want to talk economics and deficits, yet ignoring GDP numbers and jobs which so the real success rate of a President, not this quantitative easing and printing money to pump the economy, I'm sure you can find some skewed numbers from media matters.

    Yes, Portuguese water dogs are expensive.

    "Barack Obama's new dog Sunny, a Portuguese water dog, set the First Family back $2,300. The dog was conceived from the frozen sperm of his father, Henry, who died in 2010 but was alive long enough to donate some sperm. The dog was purchased from a Portuguese puppy breeding center in Attica, Michigan run by Amy Lane. Lane said of father Henry that he was a "showman, mellow, laid back and if all the other dogs in our neighborhood barked, he could care less."

    Wayne Pacell, president of the Humane Society of the United States, blogged, "As we always say in such circumstances, we hope the Obamas considered adoption or rescue as the first choice in obtaining a pet."

    Adoption or rescue? The Obamas don't even consider that for unborn children, let alone a dog." :laugh:

    If anyone would like to make some Reagan/Obama GDP comparison numbers, especially our resident liberals who post articles about deficits and GDP, I have provide a link for your convience which shows the real tragedy of a Obama recovery. Just put in the year and quarter you wish to review.

    Wow. Great tool.

    Youngsters don't realize how bad the economy was under Carter and it continued to sink under Reagan in 81 and 82. And then Reagan's policies kicked in. Look at 82, 83, 84 GDP quarterly and annual growth. I'm seeing 7.0%, 8.0% and similar coming out of recession. And with Obama, the media gets tingly again if we see a 2.0% growth quarter. And of course it is usually revised down 6 months later.

    Policies do matter. As does leadership.
