It's All Bush's Fault

Holiday spending was up by 8.7%. Not exactly the sign of a sluggish economy.

MSM will say "It's all Bush's fault that Holiday spending was only up by 8.7%. Must be the sign of a sluggish economy." MSM must always be negative. We must ignore the negativity.

Is it also President Bush's fault that new home sales fell by 11.3% last month, the largest decline in 12 years? Just curious.

A correction to Carol's original post. The 8.7% increase quoted only includes purchases over $1000. According to the preliminary SpendingPulse analysis of all sales, overall holiday spending was up 5.2%. The comparable figure last year was 8.1%. [Cite]

Yhe MSM posted a number that was more than 50% larger than the actual number. Is trying to make the economy look stronger than it actually is a sign of negativity?
