Hooverville, it’s not

Fox News: “U.S. economic growth leapt ahead at an upwardly revised 5.6 percent annual rate in the first quarter, helped by lower imports than first thought and generating strong corporate profits, the Commerce Department said on Thursday.”

Then the Fed eased back on rate hikes leading to this: “Stocks Soar After Fed Decision; Dow Up More Than 215 Points

And even with creeping inflation, the misery index is at a historically low level of 8.77%.

But at least the Democrats can depend on high gas prices, right? Right? Uh-oh.

Hey, you forgot to post the current housing sales stats. You were touting those every month for a while; they must be really be soaring now! Uhh, oops.

Well, then, why don'tcha link to the newest unemployment and jobless claim numbers? That was another regular feature once. And whenever jobless claims are going down, it's a real bodyblow to the liberals' chances... oh deary, dear.

The good news is that AAA said yesterday that gas has plunged all the way down to an average of $2.87 (*) a gallon! (*Pre-summer rates.) Sure, the White House's Energy Information Administration predicted the summer '06 price would be $2.28, but what can you buy with 60 cents anyway? And only a twelfth of Americans have reportedly cancelled their vacation plans due to the cost of gas! Whoooo!!! In your face, Howard Dean! U! S! A!
