Those figures were a few days after Obama took office.
Here are the figures for TODAY

Good to see contributing. Even though I am not a conservative, you add a valued perspective and are open to debate, not overly dogmatic.

AMD is not forum that lends itself to very much debate on economic policy and numbers. But the economy is a factor in my biz, so I watch what is happening.

The thing that people are missing overall, is how the extent of traditional "American" corporations are now multi-nationals, how intertwined the global economy has become, and how many "American" firms are not American owned. What once was American is now multi-national, like it or not.

People, it is not what it seems, nor once what it was.

Dick Morris and the League of American Voters

As Dick Morris explains, time is absolutely critical in states like Massachusetts and elsewhere and you can make a big difference.

Time is critical. Americans all over the country are fed up with the Obama administration. They don't want his radical healthcare program.

Citizens from states like Massachusetts, Nebraska, Florida and others are rising up as never before.

Even in liberal states such as Massachusetts citizens are showing their outrage over the Obama-Pelosi-Reid alliance and it's dismal record at creating jobs and inability to protect us against terrorism.

The Democrats know that the final vote has not taken place on the healthcare bill and that key senators and congressmen are starting to waver.

The politicians in Washington have seen the latest Rasmussen poll with Obama's job approval down to 46 percent.

States such as Massachusetts, Nebraska, Colorado, Florida and others must be targeted to expose the dangerous Obama-Pelosi-Reid healthcare plan and the trios out-of-control spending plans.

If polling data and other indices of public opinion reflect the growing outrage at Obama, the liberals in Washington will think twice before they vote for more taxes, spending, and regulation.

Once again, tell me something I don't know. Now you just stated the obvious. People on this forum are oblivious to economic policy and numbers. I'm informed as are you, but as to the rest, it's hopeless and a waste of time.

Maybe.... just maybe its because most people here aren't here for politics?

I mean, who would think such a thing.... coming to match site for something other then politics?

I think most people here are likely to take politics lightly while here, even if they are politically active in their real life. This site is an escape from the conastant barrage of politics saturating the news today.

I find it ok to post about politics from time to time, and to take a light hearted look at it, but to call people on a site named AdultMatchDoctor.com oblivious to economic policy... well that says a lot about you.

And this isn't an attack, before you get your shorts in a wad dr... just a suggestion that should watch how you speak about others before going and whining later how you been misstreated. Maybe if you stop beating up on the people of this site for not being as politically motivated as you are, there would be less tension.

That is my advice... take it of leave it.
