    Maybe it shows the success of the dreaded SEQUESTER .
    Or maybe folks are comforted by Obama's incredibly sinking approval ratings.
    Or maybe they're buoyed by the prospect of the Senate changing hands next year.
    Or maybe they simply don't get the connection between Bernanke printing money and the Stock Market boom ... which will reverse when he stops.

    You mean Obama's idea for the sequester was a good one? I doubt it has helped our economy but at least it is not killing it off.

    Why would it bother Republicans? We're the ones buying all the cool new stuff.

    You can do that after you layoff a bunch of lazy Democrats and get your margins in order.

    The Dems got there way and the economy is still in the crapper.

    This is good news for the Dems, because they don't look AS bad, now.

    This is in spite of Obama's policies and people know he can'trun for office again, so of course consumer confidence is going up.

    Nope. In spite of Republican efforts to hamper recovery. Because I said so. Neener.

    It wasn't the Republicans that blocked the pipeline, nor was it the Republicans that shutdown offshore drilling. It wasn't the Republicans that tried to shut down drilling in west Texas because of some stupid lizard. It wasn't the Republicans that passed Obamacare.

    Nice try, though.

    You know, I'm thinking I can go along with that.
    The fact that Dems know how to grow the economy is why they got majorities in 5 out of the last 6 Presidential elections so that works for me too. Don't underestimate the damage done to Republicans by their abysmal record on the economy.

    One thing I certainly won't underestimate is the level of desperation echoed by many Dems today...

    Re: Consumer confidence strongest in over five years in May

    This thread went partisan from post one. Should be a fun show.

    I think it is great people are spending money. Now if we only had a consumption tax.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
