    Sounds like all the nayslayers are eating crow as people flock to stores for the Christmas event. IF we are so bad off you wouldn't see this type of spending behavior. So sit down you rightwinged Loons and STFU!!!


    A strong Christmas Eve would round out a surprisingly successful holiday season for retailers. The National Retail Federation predicts that holiday sales will reach $451.5 billion this year, up 3.3 percent over last year. That would be the biggest year-over-year increase since 2006, and the largest total since sales hit a record $452.8 billion in 2007. A strong finish could even give 2010 the crown.

    Just like a delusional lefty loon to credit Obama with profits from corporations from individual consumers, he likes to over regulate, and who's stimulus didn't help.

    Desperate desperation is obvious.

    A couple of years ago we were told to save our money so save we did. Now we just blew our wad and it's back to broke. But we saved for a whole year, lol.

    Compared to Bush years, Obama is flying!!!

    True to form, sales levels increased a significant 8.8 percent (traffic -1.0 percent) during the week ending Dec. 26 as procrastinating and value-driven shoppers took full advantage of four full shopping says before Christmas to secure those last items on their lists. Leading the way, Dec. 26 – traditionally around the third best performing day of the season – vaulted to the number two position with $7.9 billion spent, opposed to $7.8 billion last year.

    1.7% is not an increase to crow about after a few years of being in the doldroms. Population growth alone accounts for 1/3 of the increase.

    At this point after a severe recession, the economy should be growing at a minimum rate of 5%. It is growing at half that rate.

    Obamanomics = EPIC FAIL.

    25% Real Unemployment in Michigan! Nevada is even higher!

    People spend now because they're sick of saving every last penny all year. They want to feel good ONCE this year.

    There are NO JOBS thanks to Obama and this Congress

    Ahh, that 1.7% is Bush in his 7th year (2007-2008).

    BUSH = EPIC FAIL.
