They seem determined to downplay the negatives and -- the economic picture and friendly bright colors.
So here's my take on the view from the other side.
The view from the ground -- he is how you see the economy nothing academics -- all the professionals -- you here's -- you -- it.
It's pretty -- By launch majority you -- think we -- heading into -- recession.

Stick to a rigid definition of recession the economy must contract you don't care about definitions no you don't.
You just know things think -- His another ugly number 87 point nine million.
That is the number of adults not in the world -- us an all time high.
Up seven point four million from president Obama's first month in office that number represents your reaction to the grim economy.
You have taken -- over time until Social Security disability you dropped out you've gotten discouraged you on not count it.
Not blaming anybody.
I'm not saying economists all wrong we'll -- -- -- distorting the truth far from -- but I am saying that when you are asked to what's going on you have a strong opinion and you up passing a very negative judgment on the state of our economy.
