"NO ONE WANTS A RECESSION" Sounds like MNSBC HQ riding all hosts today to say this

I've heard all day long on MSNBC. The bosses must have sent down a mandate to every show - trumpy and the GOP are in a snit about the recession! make sure you say we don't want a recession to appease them because we are weak and cowardly! their demagoguing criticism hurts our fee fees!

2. Only place I heard it was on Real Time last week.

Offhand comment like "it would be worth it to get rid of Trump".

5. I was unemployed for 2 years during the last one.

Sorry if I don't feel like going through that again.

11. Don't be.

Funny how the sparse and few people saying that are among the least hurt by a recession.

3. The wingnuttosphere is accusing the left of wanting a recession

My guess is that's probably why.

4. Actually they are accusing Democats of wishing for a recession, that is entirely going that

way because of their policies

They are trying to blame their insanity on the Democrats

It reminds me of a NY Times piece blaming the "hubris" of Obama for causing republicans to reject climate change

It is a tactic to shift blame for their incompetence

6. FOX is pushing that heavily.

When they could lie about how well the tax breaks & tariffs were working, all good emanated from their God. Now that all his economic policies are obviously failing, now those failures are all caused by the democrats. They must have a ministry of propaganda. Iíd love to have a recording of one of their meetings lately, where they arrive at their latest BS story and decimate it. Iím guess they donít put anything in writing.

Actually Iím betting RW and republican groups of all ilks are huddling up and and desperately trying to come up with a message they can sell. Theyíve all been pushing a fake story line about how how well things are working out and that has been increasingly obvious to be a lie.

14. Trump has been saying it and the GOP is running with it.

No one wants a recession, even though we know that a downturn would make Trump's chances in 2020 worse. Trump is just throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. He is a disgusting piece of crap, always. If we are sliding into a recession it is because the GOP blew a hole in the budget and Trump's trade war and stupid daily comments are slowing down the growth that President Obama had going for 7 years of his presidency and the first 2 of Trump's. We are seeing the beginning of the Trump economy and it is not good.

8. Nobody in their right mind wants one.

Can't really knock them for that.

But still need to consider that it is a strong possibility.
