Some folks think the worst is behind us:
These figures signal that the most intense period of the recession is behind us, not in front of us. Any "stimulus" applied by government has less to do with creating the recovery than letting politicians take credit when the recovery happens.
Obama and crew want to be able to “take credit” when things get better. And they also want to use this crisis to centralize the government’s control over all of us even more.
They will likely succeed in the second, but I fear their crazy policies will extend the recession not end it.
The government got us in this mess and it isn’t going to get us out. We have to take our lumps – their fault, our pain. Them helping us is like Gilligan trying to help the Professor fix the radio – his ineptitude will break it and extend our stay on this economic desert island.
