It’s The Economy, Dumbshit

I’m not an economist but I did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night. And with that expertise I have come to the conclusion that the Dow Jones Industrial Average continuing to break records, the latest being the Dow passing 12,000 for the first time in all of HISTORY, is a very good thing for this "horrible" economy.

Despite the internet bubble burst, the Clinton recession, 9/11, two wars and several huge corporate scandals, almost 7 million jobs have been created since August 2003. The unemployment rate is still at a low 4.6 percent. In the past year 48 states registered employment growth. The Dow has broken through to historic highs and all time highs… so has the S&P 500. The economy is growing faster than any European nation. The Housing Market is still booming. Gas prices are continuing to fall throughout the country. And overall homeownership is at record levels… including minority homeowners

Interestingly, I scanned the major liberal websites and guess what news went without mention?
