    What??? NO pet pictures?
    Are we going from “Dragon face” to “Panda Face” now?…
    Our “friends” photos have been a standard part of these postings…subtle shift in “face” ????
    Just go get ’em …. get this nailed down for signatures before July 4th….

    The proof is in the pudding is the pertinent analysis to take away from Mr Hassett’s discussion.
    Structural domestic economic changes and the persistent effort to balance our international trade relations are a gift to one and all in the USA.

  5. GB Bari says:

    Hassett does not mince words but he covers an incredibly broad range of economic analysis in a short interview. Only possible because he is so intimately familiar with all of the data behind the metrics.
    The cheery nature is simply an added bonus. Accountants tend to be droll, deadpan personalities. Kevin is a rare but wonderful exception to that norm.

    Just think where we’d be without all these traitors holding up President Trump.
    All this wonderful economic prosperity for the Democrats to steal and give to the illegals flooding our Republic.
    Suggestion: Take them by the busloads and drop them right in Pelosi’s, Schumer’s, etc. FRONT YARDS. And tell them in no uncertain terms that they will take care of them with their OWN $ !!!
    I know for a fact that President Trumps magic wand can deliver double digit GDP.
    We just need to get rid of some sick, sick people in Government first.
    So be it.

  7. I maintain that PDT’s trade team is his best team, certainly my/our favorite….makes all of BHO’s teams rather puny looking, kinda girly even….but then so was he. (Bicycle pic! Lol)
    Now, if he can just get an immigration team……..

    Kevin is such a happy warrior.

  9. TradeBait says:

    PDT did what he said he would do if he was POTUS. Several years before he ran for office he made statements on FOX that if he decided to run he would hire some of the most badazz sharks on Wall Street to totally revamp trade and turn our economic fortunes around. He said China and others who were taking America to the cleaners would be totally screwed. And so it has begun, thankfully. Hassett is amazing, smiles his way right into your heart. Yet, nobody knows more about macroeconomics than him.

    WINNING = Kryptonite for trolls.

  11. Some old guy says:

    The reality is that NO Republican candidate for president had the vision capable of the comprehensive ser of coordinated actions necessary to build the framework for sustainable 3% annual growth in this economy in 2016. I question how many, if any, potential Republican candidate for President does today.

    • An American says:

      SOG, make that none of the candidates for President had the vision except Donald J. Trump. They were and still are a bunch of lite weights. This isn’t brain surgery but you at least have to have a brain and what a “gifted” President we elected.
