    They hired the same idiots that count Obama’s job growth. My website went from 1 hit to 2 this year….THAT’S A 100% INCREASE CHUMPS !

    Just goes to show that if you start with low ratings then your chances of going up are better. If CNBC might be near the bottom and can only go up. Then again may be not.
