Zero Hedge: "GDP Disaster: Final Q1 GDP Crashes To -2.9%, Lowest Since 2009, Far Below The Worst Expectations." "Finally, as a reminder, US GDP has never fallen more than 1.5% except during or just before an NBER-defined recession since quarterly GDP records began in 1947. Good luck department of truth propaganda machine, because even assuming 3% growth every other quarter in 2014 means 2014 GDP will be 1.5% at best!"
The Federalist: "The economy tanked last quarter and it's everybody's fault but Obama's." Duh! Tell me something I don't know. Currently the chief culprit is this period of declined temperatures some are calling "winter."
