GOP Predictions as Wrong as their Trickle Down Economic plan.

Think Progress reminded all of us how wrong Republicans were about the economy and just about everything else. And we're supposed to trust them with the economy now?
4 Things That Were Supposed To Happen By 2015 Because Obama Was Reelected
1. Gas was supposed to cost $5.45 per gallon. Gingrich said he would reduce gas prices dramatically by reversing Obama’s energy policies. Gingrich flanked himself with campaign signs promising $2.50 gas if he was elected. Today, the nationwide average for a gallon of gas is $2.24.

2. Unemployment was supposed to be stuck at over 8%

3. The stock market was supposed to crash: Donald J. Trump tweeted: "The stock market and US dollar are both plunging today. Welcome to @BarackObama’s second term."

4. The entire U.S. economy was supposed to collapse: Rush Limbaugh predicted that “the country’s economy is going to collapse if Obama is re-elected.” Limbaugh was confident in his prediction: “There’s no if about this. And it’s gonna be ugly. It’s gonna be gut wrenching, but it will happen.”
