Think back to Thanksgiving weekend. All I remember hearing was how holiday shopping was smashing records. I knew it was B.S. and I was waiting for the inevitable "revision" of the statistics. Just like everytime in the last 4 years the MSM reported an "improvement" in the unemployment rate, there is always a correction quietly reported in the back of the business pages.
As Rush always says, if we were in a real recovery, we wouldn't need to be told we were in a recovery.

I'm used to some times Christmas shopping when the parking lots are literally full to the point where you have to follow someone coming out of the store to get their spot. The lots were nowhere close to being full this year. Unless online shopping has more than doubled, this was a very bad year for Christmas shopping.

I remember the ‘Black Friday was Great’ stories too....and I told everybody in the office to wait for the ‘disappointing shopping season’ stories right after Christmas. Its been the same for 4 years now....wishful thinking economic analysis, on the party of the so called ‘experts’ in the media.
