Americans are getting happier and feeling better about the future, though they still don’t like President Bush much and really seem to hate the Democrat controlled Congress.
The latest poll of attitudes is out, and it includes this statistic: 54 percent of Americans think the country is headed toward recession. Lovely.
Interestingly enough, they didn’t ask people to define recession, probably because most couldn’t and are only answering this way because, for a while at least, every Democrat near a microphone was saying we were in one, though you would hope at least they would know what one was.
Since the passage of the “stimulus” package, that talk as slowed or stopped because Democrats are now official part-owners of the economy they said needed to be fixed.
