More record to run on ...
Consumer confidence is at a five year high...
Confident consumers give retail sales a lift
WASHINGTON - Americans spent more money at retailers in September - a buying surge that reflected growing consumer confidence and the launch of the latest iPhone.
Retail sales jumped 1.1 percent last month, producing the best two months of sales in two years, according to figures released Monday by the Commerce Department.
The University of Michigan's survey of consumer sentiment released Friday showed a reading of 83.1 for October.
That's up from 78.3 in September and the highest level since September 2007 - three months before the start of the Great Recession.

Even MORE record to run on ...
US budget deficit at four year low ...
U.S. budget deficit shrinks by over $200 billion, reaches 4-year low
Obama inherited a deficit of nearly $1.3 trillion from Bush/Cheney the moment he took the oath of office.
This year, however, according to the official data published by the Treasury Department, the deficit was $1.089 trillion.

MORE record to run on ...
Initial jobless claims at four year low...
Jobless claims fall to four-year low
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Claims for unemployment benefits fell sharply last week to their lowest level in more than four years, but the drop was due mostly to a technical issue.
About 339,000 people filed for first-time unemployment benefits in the week ended October 6, down 30,000 from the previous week, the Labor Department said Thursday.
That's a dramatic drop in just one week and represents the lowest level of initial claim filings since February 2008.

Still MORE record to run on ....
Overall unemployment at a four year low...
U.S. jobless rate tumbles to near four-year low
(Reuters)- The U.S. unemployment rate unexpectedly dropped to 7.8 percent in September and reached its lowest level since President Barack Obama took office, providing a boost to his re-election bid.
The Labor Department said on Friday that employers added 114,000 workers to their payrolls last month, a moderate number, but it said a combined 86,000 more jobs were created in the prior two months than it had previously thought.
Other aspects of the report also were strong. In particular, a separate survey of households found a big surge in hiring. That pushed the jobless rate down by 0.3 percentage point to its lowest level since January 2009.

Oh, danny BOY, your desperate 11th hour lies need to be corrected.
It is an objective, verifiable FACT that OBAMA has run his entire campaign based on lies. It is not a matter of opinion. And only mindless LEFTwing drones can't acknowledge that fact because their irrational hatred and demonization of Romney has blinded them to objective reality.
There you go, BOY, fixed it.
Since: Jul 12
#41432 Nov 5, 2012
Teddy, you keep believing all that even as president Obama wins another election, alright boy? You can do it.
#41433 Nov 5, 2012
"If Romney wins Ohio", danny BOY???
That's not possible, is it BOY, because all the POLLS say Obama is going to win Ohio!
Why are you wasting your time contemplating an impossibility?
It sounds like you need to keep repeating your Stuart Smalley Daily Affirmation for Obama, BOY:
"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!"
#41434 Nov 5, 2012
You really are one dumb SOB.
Robme me has not run on lies?
Stupid hic. Oh ya, and unAmerican Nazi.
And only mindless RIGHTwing drones can't acknowledge that fact because their irrational hatred and demonization of Obama has blinded them to objective reality.
Keep watching Faux poop di<k.
#41435 Nov 5, 2012
Multiple sources have documented, fact-checked and proven the vast number of Romney's bald-faced lies. I've provided several sources.
The mindless wingnut drones, with their obsessive Freudian projection, make the same claims about Obama but can't back them up. Hell, they don't even TRY!
It'll be all over but the crying by Wednesday and I'll be here to dry Ted the Pathological Liar's bitter, bitter tears then.
If he has the balls to even show up. LMAO!
#41436 Nov 5, 2012
Good spin, danny BOY!
The percentage of Americans underemployed or unemployed under Obama's four year failed presidency has NEVER been HIGHER!
You'd say of a flood receding to a home's first floor after covering the second as "Overall flooding at a four year low..."
#41437 Nov 5, 2012
Steve Benen has meticulously chronicled 917 of Mitt Romney's bald-faced lies over the past 41 weeks.
The latest 33 of them and the complete archive are here:
Every lie is fully sourced and documented.
And not a single wingnut here will even TRY to refute a single one of them.
Because the truth is irrefutable.
#41438 Nov 5, 2012
Bush set the house on fire.
Obama put the fire out.
Then Repubtards like this lying jackass blame Obama for the damage.
- OR -
Bush's neglect allowed the dam to break.
Obama stopped the flooding and brought the water level down.
The Repubtards like this lying jackass blame Obama for how high the water got.
No matter how you look at it, any honest assessment of actual history shows these asinine attacks to be nothing but bullshit and lies.
#41439 Nov 5, 2012
You are absolutely shameless in your spin, danny BOY!
Ooops. You forgot to mention that "deficit at four year low" means spending 1.1 TRILLION dollars MORE than the nation has.
After spending money you don't have by charging $1500 on your credit card in May,$1400 more you don't have in June and $1300 you don't have in July, you'd describe charging $1200 you don't have in August as "deficit shrinks by over $100, reaches 4-month low."
Obama has ADDED FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS to the national debt in four years, BOY, and you now claim that's some sort of IMPROVEMENT???
You mirror the Obama's dishonesty in presenting such fiscal irresponsibility as some sort of 'improvement'.

Romney stumps in Virginia......November 5 , 2012
"Folks if I'm elected ,I will bring jobs back but it wont be overnight,it will take time" - Mitt Romney
I thought this guy was going to create jobs one day one??????
#41441 Nov 5, 2012
This is, of course, a total lie.
Bush's Recession caused a peak of 10% official unemployment rate in October 2009, and Obama's policies have reduced that to 7.9%.
Bush's Recession caused a peak of 17.2% U6 unemployment rate in October 2009, and Obama's policies have reduced that to 14.6%.
There is no honest way to make the statement that, "The percentage of Americans underemployed or unemployed has NEVER been HIGHER!" It is a bald-faced LIE.
#41442 Nov 5, 2012
Oh look - another Repubtard who doesn't know the difference between the deficit and the debt.
LMAO! Stupid wingnuts.
#41443 Nov 5, 2012
OMG danny BOY!
You're still trying to blame Obama's epic failed four year presidency on BUSH??
We understand, BOY. That's all Obama has left in the tank after four years of his OWN ineptitude in reducing unemployment and creating jobs for the 23 MILLION unemployed and underemployed, long suffering Americans.
But thanks for trotting it out again for a good laugh.
"It's Bush's fault!" says danny BOY after 1400 days of Obama's 'leadership'.
I know it hurts to read, BOY, but Obama has made Bush look like a Mensa member.

FY 2010:$1,293 billion
FY 2011:$1,300 billion
FY 2012:$1,089 billion
FY 2013*:$901 billion
#41445 Nov 5, 2012
New debt that is the result of Obama's policies is about $983 billion.
Doing the math on Obama’s deficits
The simple-minded thing is to simply blame Obama for the current deficit.
But intelligent people capable of critical thinking and comprehension of complex concepts can understand that you can't honestly blame someone for something their policies did not create.
REM broke up while Obama was President. Is that Obama's fault too? LOL!
#41446 Nov 5, 2012
ANOTHER lie? LOL! It's like this Repubtard isn't even capable of telling the truth.
Of course, he's just mindlessly parroting Mitt Romney's lie.
Also during the debate, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that 23 million people are out of work in the nation.
"There is suffering in this country," said Romney. "And we talk about evidence. Look at the evidence of the last four years. It's absolutely extraordinary. We've got 23 million people out of work."
When the recession began, workers in every category lost jobs, but those in the middle and higher wage groups lost more of them.
And when the jobs started coming back, the lower-wage jobs came back stronger. That means that, while the nation has replaced lost jobs, many of those new jobs pay less than the old ones did.
To reach his 23 million figure, Romney counts everyone who is unemployed, has stopped looking for work or is underemployed -- working for less money than before or able to find only a part-time job.
Romney is stretching his figures to the breaking point -- which makes his claim false.
