    President Barack Obama gets mediocre marks for his handling of the economy and Mitt Romney easily outpolls his Republican rivals in an Associated Press survey of economists.

    Half of the 36 economists who responded to the Dec. 14-20 AP survey rated Obama's economic policies "fair." And 13 called them "poor." Just five of the economists gave the president "good" marks. None rated him as "excellent."

  2. Half of the 36 economists who responded to the Dec. 14-20 AP survey rated Obama's economic policies "fair." And 13 called them "poor." Just five of the economists said "We haven't a fucking clue as to what we're supposed to do now.".

     
  3. This reminds me of the 2nd law of economics:

    For each economist who makes a prediction, there exists a second economist with an equal but opposite forecast.

    And, they are both wrong.

  4. No need to worry, the only Economist liberals need to confirm that we need a much larger government is Paul Krugman, afterall he is a nobel prize winner. :D
