It's the economy, stupid

The Washington Times, today reported that consumer confidence is at a two year high.

Consumer confidence surged to a two-year high this month as Americans took note of the steadily improving job market, the Conference Board reported yesterday.

Job gains have averaged about 200,000 a month this year after three years of job losses. But consumers — distracted by record-high gasoline prices and problems in Iraq — were slow to notice the trend until gas prices eased this month.

No matter how the democrats try to spin it, people know that the economy is doing great and getting better. Good news for the country is bad news for the democrats. What a tough place for them to be in.
