Sorry, Republicans, But the Economy Keeps Growing

I'm sure this is a massive conspiracy by the Obama administration that demands portly Dean Chambers to unskew it, but here you go:

The economy grew at a substantially faster pace in the third quarter than first thought, powered by increases in business inventories and federal spending.

After initially saying output increased at an annual rate of 2 percent, the Commerce Department on Thursday revised its estimate to show growth of 2.7 percent in the three months that ended Sept. 30.

Republicans hate this.

    I’d like to see where the economy would be if the pretending to be concerned about the deficit/debt Tea Party and the fillabuster had not shut down congress since 2010.

    oh Bob…you pushed the portly button again! Steve Benen better look out for a scathing threat from Chambers to take his ball home
