The MSM cant get there story straight for something as simple as Black Friday. Was it a finacial success and therefore evidence that the economy is doing great as many economists have reported (and leftists have being trying to supress), or is it a dismal failure and reminicent of the evil Bush regime stifling the US economy under the weight of its oppressive tax cuts on the rich in favor of burdening the poor. Drudge has a few stories lined up for you. http://drudgereport.com/ AP says its a "modest start" but not to get too excited cause the end times are still nigh. http://www.breitbart.com/news/2005/11/28/D8E5KMKO1.html Bloomberg (the information company not the mayor) says that we're on track to have the second biggest holiday season ever. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=10000087&sid=aSHKhbAeRnkA NY Times is predicting doom for many specialty stores http://www.nytimes.com/2005/11/28/b...&partner=rssuserland&emc=rss&pagewanted=print USA Today also reporting a boom in sales over the weekend to put on pace for the 2nd biggest sales season ever. http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/news/20051128/1a_bottomstrip28x_dom.art.htm So which is it? Is the economy good or bad? Do people have more money to spend or is it just coincidence? Does that mean that low unemployment and low taxes make more money for people? Seems the MSM didnt get the memo on this one and got their stories mixed up. Too much good news getting to the people is a bad for the Democrats and the left.
