    Economic numbers are good? Well.. That's a flat lie. 17 percent happy with how things are going? That seems exagerated.... At least CNN's reporting quality hasn't changed.

      Of course, you are a world renouned economist right? Additionally, the fact that four (4) years ago we were in the worst recession since the great depression, yet today the GDP is reported at 1.8. After losing about 10M jobs, we have had job growth for 23 of the past 24 months.....In your mind that wouldn't be "good"? Ok, for people like you, would it be seen as at least "better"?

      How about this...go back to your basement until we get this thing fixed ok? We really have our feel of the naysayers and arm-chair quarterbacks about now. This country is the greatest country on earth and we will prevail, with President Obama leading the way.
