TRUCK SALES PICK UP SPEED...(AP) Detroit...After years of sputtering, sales of big pickup trucks kiked into overdrive, last month. Demand for full-size pickups jumped 16%, helping make August the strongest month for auto sales in three years. Overall auto sales increased 20 percent from a year earlier to nearly 1.3 million, according to Autodata Corp.....The rising demand shows that businesses need to replace aging trucks and feel more confident about the recovery in US housing-a market where pickup trucks are essential for hauling equipment and crews....Fod,GM and Chrysler, the biggest makers of full-size trucks, notched double-digit gains in overall sale last month.........

They have this year to spend money or sell the businesses because certain things expire at end of year. It's good, but it won't last, unless more is done. Incentives are about to expire.

So the left's counter to facts on Obama's economic failure and incredulous hypocritical stance on job outsourcing is to accuse those pointing them out as being doomsdayers (and of course St. Idiot accusing everyone of being a racist), and digging deep into something remotely cheery. like Michigan's tourism uptick.

People didn't have enough money to travel so they vacationed in their home state - and you want to call that something to cheer about?

Typical liberal ass-backwards logic.

This is the best angle by the left yet when faced with criticism to their almighty Obama:
"People who recognize a failing economy are not only racist, but just abhor good news. Not the kind of good news that demonstrates a nationwide turnaround, but little things, like people not being able to afford to travel out of state."

LOL ... you guys have to go deeper into insanity every day to defend your vote.

Spending money in your home state is a bad thing now?
What a laughable loon you are 'wahwah boy'.
Pry your lard ass from behind your sobbing machine and drive out here to Holland sometime.
Of course to you, all the out of state visitors would be some 'liberal hoax'.
But then again, that's what makes you 'special'.

It's very simple. You want an indication of national economic troubles? Look to people who have so little extra money they can't afford to travel far. While that may make for a nice local headline, on a broader scale it's yet another sign of joblessness and a failing economy overall.

You bringing up some out-of-state cars as proof the economy is great is like Go Blue looking out his window and seeing a construction cone and claiming there is no unemployment problem. You'll see whatever you want to see to try and defend Obama. I get it. Just don't expect everyone else to ignore reality along with you.

All GM had to do was go bankrupt and fire the workers. They could have opened the next day with a whole new staff. Net job losses ZERO, or relatively small. Would have save the American people 50 billion. The way Obama did it just puts off the pain of the unplayable retirements plans, that somehow unions have federally protected.
But that McDonald's worker needs to wait extra to retire.... Because something they paid into, unlike the UAW, is going bankrupt?
You must be a business owner.....

A real auto worker would laugh in your face if you just hired people off the street, paid them minimum wage, and then expected those cars to actually be able to drive down the road.

I shouldn't even comment on your opinion that these worker's pensions aren't worth protecting...... Maybe the person who buys your business when you retire should be allowed to not pay you for it!

How pray tell did Honda ever build that plant in Ohio? Who said anything about min wage?

Of course their pensions should not be protected by taxpayers. They didn't have a dog in that fight. Tell you what bobby... I'm going to promise all my employees a lucrative retirement plan... Which I know im never going to be around to have to honor.... And then I'm going to renig and make you pay for it.... Sound about right to you? Of course you can't retire til you're 70 but they can at 46. Thanks for pickn up the tab bub

CEO are retiring at 46, why shouldn't the worker be able to do that too.

Republicans- take away wages for houly workers and give it to the CEO's

VOTE DEMOCRAT if you are in the middle class otherwise it is KaMOKAZEE to middle class

Story in tonight's GR Press about the zoo having their best year ever.
Pretty soon Art Prize will be drawing thousands to downtown GR (and the lakeshore).

Pretty soon the granddaddy of crybaby dingos will be here telling us what horrible things these are.

He's such a predictable little boy.
Could you imagine waking up every day with the huge hissyfit attitude that child has?
