This is a dismal report, and it’s not going to be getting better any time soon, so long as Wile E. Obama and the ACME Economic Destruction Co. are busy raising taxes and implementing new business-crushing regulations.

Michelle Obama did an interview with a DC hip-hip station the other day, and when asked the question about “what the state of the union is right now”, she told the DJ we’re in the midst of a huge recovery. As the chart nearby shows, Reagan’s recovery was huge. Obama’s isn’t even average.

I love how every month another index or market indicator does poorly, it’s “unexpected.” Why? Is there anything happening in the economy that would lead these prognosticators to think that things are getting better? Why are they continually wrong about these predictions?

Can he really be that detached from reality? We’ve had 8+% unemployment for over three years, and business are reluctant to hire new workers because of the uncertainty about tax hikes and out-of-control regulatory agencies.

With the economy (and my retirement account) being in the state it’s in, I don’t harbor any illusions about retiring at age 65. I’ve read too many stories about people who die soon after they retire.
