    Coupled with record breaking Dow, lowest UE since 1973 and a 3% growth rate with no tax cuts and you have to wonder when the Dems will drop this losing non stop attack on Pres Trump.

    “Consumers’ assessment of current conditions improved, boosted by the job market which had not received such favorable ratings since the summer of 2001,” said Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at The Conference Board.

    This economy in its ninth year of expansion shows no sign of tiring and turning down and may outlast the 10 years of growth during the Clinton presidency.

    Trump had nothing to do with this. Correlation does not imply causation.

    Because Hillary was denied her due doesn't mean her legacy is in peril. The economics are doing well because of Obama and the policies he fought the congress to get done.

    /----/ Can you name some of the Obama policies that led to the lowest UE since 1973 and highest consumer confidence in 17 years? I'll wait so you can gather your notes and post the data.

    Indeed, yet the market has skyrocketed in the last nine months due to the rapid decrease of uncertainty that Obama generated. That's a fact.

    Perceptions matter.
