I guess this is why you don't hear conservatives harp on it much anymore.

"By one measure, the U.S. economy is the best it’s been since the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower. The recent plunge in inflation has helped drive the U.S. Misery Index to its least miserable level since the spring of 1959...."

And, of all things, thanks in large part to energy prices. I guess NOT having oilmen like Bush and Cheney running the country is a good case for keeping misery at bay.

Huh? How did BushCo raise gas prices? Fracking is what got it down recently, with obama kicking and screaming to no avail. It's called "the free market".

In fact, as soon as the prices dropped, they were talking about raising the gas tax. You know, keeping the happiness going, and stuff.

My spin would be "ya but we're still not in the top 10 happiest countries on earth."

Awesome, lets lower my taxes then.
Right after we pay for Bush's wars. And the other Bush's war. And Reagan's war.
Ahahaha you liberals are hilarious, you preach economic doom and gloom then try to prop up your clown in the White House preaching economic victory. Why the contradiction? I think we know, you lie!

The Misery Index was invented just for Jimmy Carter
Now that the index isn't longer bad, the index that matters is now....no not the unemployment rate.....but workforce participation rate

The 'Doomsday Clock' overshadows any benefit from a lower 'misery index'. Too bad.

Reign of terror? Fucking idiot. You need to go live in ISIS land. Then come back and tell us about the reign of terror that is the United States.
