    Lighten up LTS, but you can also write one thing in stone. "Everyone knows" exactly what kind of a pervert slick willie is.


    The number of Supreme Court justices that attended his last state of the union address??? NONE, ZERO, ZIP. Just a classic liberal former president,,,that achieved recognition and acclaim in the dumbocrat party, because he did wrong. Typical.

    Year Ago GDP Jump 'Disappointing'; This Year Negative GDP: 'Whole Lot Brighter,' ABC Credits 'Stimulus'
    By: Brent Baker
    July 31, 2009 21:05 ET

    A year ago, when the government reported second quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) doubled from the first quarter to 1.9 percent, the CBS Evening News centered a story around what Katie Couric described as “disappointing” news while ABC and NBC didn't utter a syllable about the GDP jump.

    But Friday night, with a different President in office, Couric crowed a one percent decline in the 2009 second quarter GDP -- the first time since tracking began in 1947 that the economy has contracted for four straight quarters -- means the “glimmer of hope just got a whole lot brighter” with “the latest evidence the recession is easing.” ABC anchor Elizabeth Vargas saw “new optimism about an economic recovery” and declared of the new negative number: “That's actually good” since “economists had projected the number would be worse.”

    George Stephanopoulos shared the White House's joy over “the best news the administration has had in weeks.” The gullible ex-Democratic operative maintained “they can point to these numbers today and say, look, there is real evidence right now that the stimulus package that we pushed for so hard is working. They cited economists who said it made a three percent difference in these numbers.”

    Fill-in NBC Nightly News anchor David Gregory was the least excited: “It has been called the great recession. And tonight there is evidence it may be easing, though for a lot of Americans this doesn't feel much like recovery. The government reported that the economy shrank less than expected in the second quarter of the year...”

    (The second quarter 2008 GDP was later revised to 1.5 percent from 1.9 percent.)

    Couric teased the Friday, July 31 CBS Evening News: “Tonight, that glimmer of hope just got a whole lot brighter. New figures show the economic decline has slowed dramatically.”

    Couric led her newscast:

    Good evening, everyone, we're beginning tonight with the economy because the bad news is actually getting better. The government reported today that the economy continued to shrink in the second quarter of this year, but only one percent this time and that's a big improvement. It had contracted more than six times as much in the first quarter. So there's the latest evidence the recession is easing. Anthony Mason has more.

    Mason began: “The economy contracted for the fourth straight quarter this Spring, but the pace of decline slowed sharply and at last it looks like the worst is over...”

    Vargas teased World News: “New optimism about an economic recovery, new outrage over big bonuses on Wall Street.”

    Vargas introduced the GDP story: “The nation's economy posted a negative one percent annual growth rate for the second quarter of the year. That's actually good. Economists had projected the number would be worse.”

    Stephanopoulos soon piped in from Washington, DC:

    This was the best news the administration has had in weeks. The President's poll numbers have been slipping, his health care plan has been stalled and they can point to these numbers today and say, look, there is real evidence right now that the stimulus package that we pushed for so hard is working. They cited economists who said it made a three percent difference in these numbers.”

    My Friday, August 1 2008 CyberAlert item, “CBS Turns Doubled GDP into 'Disappointing' News, ABC & NBC Silent,” recounted:

    Second quarter Gross Domestic Product (GDP) doubled to 1.9 percent, up from 0.9 percent in the first quarter, the Commerce Department announced Thursday morning as consumer spending rose 1.5 percent in the quarter ending June 30, up from 0.9 percent in the first quarter, and U.S. exports soared 9.2 percent, way up from 5.1 percent in the first three months of 2008.

    Yet the CBS Evening News centered a story around “disappointing” news about the supposedly “struggling economy” (with that on screen) -- while ABC and NBC, which on April 30 led with full stories on the news of a 0.6 percent (since revised to 0.9) first quarter GDP, didn't utter a syllable Thursday night about the big GDP jump. On the last day of April, ABC's Betsy Stark declared the economy had “flat lined” and NBC anchor Brian Williams warned “it's getting rough out there” as the new GDP number “stops just short of the official declaration of a recession.” Thursday night, however, ABC's World News and NBC Nightly News made time for full stories on outrage over ExxonMobil earning “the largest profit ever made by a U.S. company.” The “oil industry says it is not out of line, but some motorists feel otherwise.”

    CBS anchor Katie Couric, picking up on the 4th quarter 2007 GDP revision from 0.6 percent to a minus 0.2, stressed how “the government now says the economy was receding, not growing, in the final quarter of last year” though “it picked up a bit in the first quarter of this year.” She then twisted the fresh news of a 1.9 percent jump into a negative:

    But look at this: In the second quarter, when all those rebate checks were supposed to stimulate the economy, it grew less than two percent. Jeff Glor has more about the disappointing numbers.

    Preferring an anecdote to factual data analysis, Glor started his story with how “you'll have a hard time convincing Paula Corletto the economy is growing” since “she and her eight-year-old daughter Leandra,” both of whom CBS showed shopping for clothes, “now limit their shopping to only one day a week.”

    Please take a moment and celebrate that these two young women are free. I would not wish one second in a North Korean labor camp on my worst enemy.


    My mom and her sister, mother and father were sent to a Stalinist labor camp in Siberia in 1941. Somehow they survived to be released about 18 months later. Many people just gave up and died.


    Imagine living on a meager diet with no vitamins in your food, no medical or dental care, no changes of clothes, frequent death of people around you, living without any sanitary bathroom or show facilities and 12 or more hours a day of back breaking labor.


    When released, my mom was infested with lice, had boils over many parts of her body, weighed less than 90 pounds and was in the beginning stages of TB. Her parents were swollen from starvation and had to be carried on litters. They were only released because the US and England put pressure on Stalin to release some Polish prisoners in order to get war supplies.


    My mom and her family went to Iran where she met and married my dad who was in the US Army.


    I only wish that our young people and reporters would stay far away from trouble when they are out of the United States.


    I hope and pray that we can get our three hikers back from Iran and our captured soldier/marine back in Afghanistan.

    School Teacher, It is indeed great news that the 2 women are released. But I have to ask...what in the hell were they doing there anyway? I'm glad they're free, but do they realize the resources that have been spent by our government to pull this off? The North Koreans allowed the release to happen only because we gave them some much desired attention through wild Bill's appearance. In the next few days, Obama, both Clintons, and the Democrats will be falling all over themselves claiming the glory, when in reality, the North Korean regime doesn't deserve the time of day. Both women need to make a public apology to their country for getting in this mess, but I bet it won't happen.

    I seem to remember that n korea couldn't get a rocket off the ground prior to slick willie mistakenly giving them some computers with sensitive info on them. In the rules of the world was it worth our secrets to save 2 very nice young ladies. I don't begrudge them their freedom, I begrudge the the azzwipe that was able to broker because of putting our country at risk.

    Just remember he was the one who gave them the technology to be able to nuke parts of our country. We will eventually pay dearly for his decision.

    Now that Obama has demonstrated that we are willing to negotiate (with terrorist countries) over kidnapped individuals...watch for more kidnappings...

    thats why we have always, until now, refused to pay ransom for captives.

    My first thoughts were.........Bill is going to hit on those gals on the way home.........

    My second thoughts were............well they were the same.

    All in all, though, I'm glad they were set free.

    Ed Ward and Bigdogtx hear hear. What you said. Seems incredible to me that anyone would trust one of those two countries at the borders. Iran and North Korea. I would not want anyone to cross into one of those two countries. If you do you are treated like a spy and given long sentenses in jail. Stay away for your own safety. I'm glad those ladies were released and are home with their families now. One thing for the poster who wants to call President Clinton ex president Clinton sorry but you are not correct there leave the politics out of the presidents title, the ex is left off and the title is President Clinton. President Bush has the same respect with the title and as does his Dad and President Carter. Dan

    I knew....when I logged on to trapshooters.com....that SOMEONE would have posted about these two women being released from improsonment in North Korea in a negative light...because it involved Bill Clinton.

    Can somebody please tell me how this is a bad thing? I'm struggling with how you can put any kind of negative spin on it, but there you have it.

    Some of you are as bad as the spin media.

    Exactly what did we give up to get them? Anybody?

    "phony orchestrated publicity stunt,,by North Korea" Yeah, no doubt. They were being used as pawns. Doesn't change the fact that they were US citizens, incarcerated in a "less than US-friendly" country on trumped-up charges. How would you like it if it were your wife or your daughter? You'd want SOMEONE to do SOMETHING. Well, SOMEBODY DID.

    I didn't much care for slick Willie's politics, nor his behavior in office, but come on.

    Whe you boil it all down, isn't it a GOOD THING that they were released?
