The economy is slowing picking up. There are real gains in corporate earnings, new jobs, housing sales, auto sales, manufacturing data, consumer confidence, etc. I've been posting some of the highlights recently. My question is this--why do people come into these threads and start saying the data is fake or it's not really happening or the real numbers are this, etc.? What's with all the doom and gloom? I can understand that many here have a dislike of Obama (as do I). But you do realize that the President has very little to do with the economy, right? So, now that things are starting to turn around, why the negativity? Why not embrace some positive economic news? Enjoy it.
