He just claims whatever he hopes/wants/needs to be true and doesn't bother to find out whether it really is. The astonishing thing is that this maladie seems to be rubbing off on many of his followers.

    Maybe you can find information that contradicts me. I'd be open to it. But so far everything I have seen tells me there is no up side to Trump.

    One of the biggest complaints of the economic performance during the Obama era was the lack of wage growth experience by the working class.
    I think I vaguely remember once hearing a pundit say something similar. But the facts apparently show otherwise.

    Now that people are finally experiencing that wage growth we will do two things. One, give credit to Obama for today and second, re-write the history of the past.
    I don't think I am re-writing it. I think I have just shown it to you. Can you acknowledge that this country needs people to have a common set of facts from which we can draw conclusions?

    Except the economy is doing fine. And, in the game of politics, which is not rational at all, that's all that matters. Voters will seek to keep it that way.

    That's an interesting opinion. But is that all it is? Or can you produce data to back it up?


    Also the numbers could only go up after the economy crash in 2008-2009
    Actually it could have kept getting worse. Let's say they introduced a smaller stimulus package. Or maybe no stimulus. what if they pressured the fed for different monetary policy? They have many economic levers.

    But so what if what you say is true? No one is really saying that Obama is an economic genius. People are trying to say that Trump is. And that is where I draw the line. He has no clue. No clue.


    which the dems purposely created.

    The dems purposely created the great recession? on purpose? That's your serious position? Why would they do that? And do you have any proof?

    Ok this will be my last attempt to get you to admit that which is before your very eyes. Then I will leave it alone. Forever.
    My understanding that you lived through a period (Obama) where many people around you --and perhaps even you yourself-- were complaining that wages were flat. You may have even read about it or seen it on TV.
    I have shown you the official stats from that period which show that in general wage growth was not stagnant.
    Isn't it possible that it was only the people around you, (in your economic sector) that had that stagnant wage experience?
    Isn't it possible that the people on TV or journalists were reporting isolated incidents and making it seem like it was widespread?
    After all we have the official stats. Are you gonna say that it is Fake News in true Trumpian form?
    Here is the chart one last time...

    Graphs are like polls. You can find one which says anything you want it to say.

    If Democrats plan on running against the condition of the economy, they'll look foolish
    They aren't. They are trying to avoid discussing it totally. They don't want the people focused on the economy. Hence the sham impeachment due to knowing none of their Clowns can beat Trump.
