How nice for my first post o’ the day to be some good news. Pity it’s from Fox, but hey, it’s still a positive report. Via a Fox Biz email alert:
A reading on consumer sentiment from Thomson Reuters and the University of Michigan came in at 84.5 in late May, up from 83.7 earlier in the month, and besting economists’ expectations that it would hold steady. The gauge is now at its highest level since July 2007.
Could things be better? Of course they could. Is the economy still struggling? Of course it is. Is this still welcome news, regardless? Indeed it is. Do we still have a lot of work to do? Absolutely. Will Republicans continue to obstruct every constructive bit of legislation that would improve the economy? Hell yeah.
Am I asking myself questions and then answering them like a mad woman? Why yes, yes I am.
