    The "economy isn't shrinking, but 'mania of pessimism' raises odds that it will". It makes sense that confidence in our economy is part of the problem. However, raising confidence won't fix our debt problems. It will only ease them by raising tax revenues through an improved economy.

    Talk of slowdown causes recession in market confidence

    How much confidence ought the millions of unemployed, undremployed, and employed but not making enough money to keep their heads above water Americans have, anyway?

    How much confidence should people depending on Social Security have?

    How much confidence should college students borrowing on future earns have, give that recent grads can't find jobs?

    2/3ds of the American people would be freaking nuts to have confidence, right now.

    there are economic signs that are encouraging.

    That is why the right did the little debt ceiling dance to crush the numbers back.

    American are actually optimistic people and will find ways to eek some good out even in bad times.

    We are at a stage in this thing when it depends on consumer confidence.

    That is why the right will have NO talk of optimism.

    We need the leaders in our coutnry to tout the reasons for opitmism but many of them have nothing to gain politically by it so they dont.

    They place party over country.

    The new party line, Obama's doing great but nobody knows it. It's a crock and since Obama was elected the millions and millions of people that lost their jobs are not imagining the enormous real suffering they're having to endure.

    We have much more to fear than fear itself. Four more years? Be afraid, be very afraid.

    that is of course idiotic!! All the confidence in the world won't change the fact that:

    1) libturds are letting China India Brazi eat our lunch

    2) liberal unions are keeping 20 million jobs off shore

    3) liberal illegals are stealing 10 million jobs

    4) liberal welfare will make us increasingly bankrupt for the next 100 years

    5) liberal schools make our kids the dumbest in the world.

    6) liberal regulation through Fanny Freddie CRA FHA and Federal Reserve destroyed our housing market

    7) liberal deficits enable China and Japan and others to buy our dedficits rather than our goods and services
