    I think it is great people are spending money. Now if we only had a consumption tax.
    So we could put a damper on spending? You tax things you want less of.

    More bad news for Republicans but GREAT news for the rest of us. Consumer spending makes up 75% of our economy.

    Why would this be bad news for Republicans? If more consumer confidence gets more Democrats off the dole, why would Republicans be upset?

    See, two can play that silly game.

    The reality of Obama's economy is it is a rotten hollowed out facade.

    It's a testament to the ignorance and desperation of your average Democrat.

    Hell, what did Bernake say just a couple of weekd ago ?

    The reality is for our Fed to be doing what their doing, our economy has to be on life support.

    Maybe it has little or nothing to do with our fearless leaders and more to do with the natural, normal economic recovery that tends to happen after bad times pass. Historically speaking, we could have elected satan and be in a slow, healthy, orderly recovery by now.

    You're on the right track, but your cat needs to have a little more mange to pass itself off as Obama (or at least be half-white and half-black)

    Let's hope consumer confidence keeps up. It hasn't affected my business yet, unfortunately.
