Yeah, well, the media has been trying to beat upbeats signs out of this 4 year downbeat economy like a dead horse.

Obama has had five years to get this economy turned round. It’s still in the doldrums.

SouthernBoy, should we offer Obama a hot plate of chitlins?

@perv, to quote you ‘Obama has had five years to get this economy turned round. It’s still in the doldrums.’ One, Obama has not even been POTUS for four years, so where does 5 years come from? Second, the lack of a robust recovery is more attributable to a Congress that refuses to do what is right. That being said, to do as well as we are doing after a financial crash on par with 1929 is pretty good, but me, like everyone else, wishes it was better.
