There's a group think lib that works at the company I do...she just bought a new car, is on the all employee stock option plan, the company is doing great...yada, yada, yada...but...to her "The economy is just terrible under Bush."
She wont listen to the facts, doesnt understand the country has had several quarters of about 3% growth, that the unemployment rate is at 4.8% (pretty much full employment in macro economic terms)...just doesnt care...cuz in her small mind...Bush is evil.
I have a term for women like her, but I'd be banned from using it. It's initials are SC.
Don't feel alone. Americans in general are pretty ignorant about economics and quite willing to believe the lies of Big Media. I recently read a column by some lib who wrote about the "sluggish" economy. If the unemployment rate was at one percent, the stock market at twenty thousand, everyone owned their own home, and the average annual income was one hundred thousand dollars Big Media would still be talking about a "sluggish" economy...and they will continue to do so while a Republican is president.
