    Excellent report. No bs about "holiday hiring" by the right wing.
    Sound growth, better than expected. Things are moving ahead!

    I pray for the economy to improve. I think it is in your own imagination to think others DO NOT do so.

    A bad economy touches everyone I know, so if it is improving it is a good thing.

    I do not think if the economy was worsening it would change your mind about Obama, so why do you expect others to have a different attitude who are from another political philosophy.

    You say you'd like the economy to improve .... But when the republicans entire argument hinges the economy stalling and NOT improving there seems to be a modus operandi that begs to differ

    How about the economy has been kept back by inaction or bad policies?

    We will just have to see. At this point in 2008 no one was even talking economy, heck in 2003 democrats bemoaned 4 percent unemployment.

    But if you see people as either for or against the Democratic party of course everything else they say is either black or white.

    George Bush 1 was crucified for "new taxes", why shouldn't Obama be held to his 8% unemployment number?

    The unemployment rate will likely be under 8% by Nov. What will the GOP do to sabatage the economy?
