It's The Economy, Stupid.

One of the great and many mysteries of the Bush administration's second term is that the economy is booming....but the greatest mystery maybe that the White House, for some odd and strange reason, does not seem to want to talk about it. Let's take a look at some of the good news, shall we:

1.) Gas prices are dropping like a paratrooper out of a C-130. From a high a few months ago of over $3, it's now down to a national average of around $2. The marketplace is working, though nobody seems to want to report that.
2.) Sales of new homes set a record last month. Pretty good for a housing bubble that was going to burst....doesn't seem to be happening.
3.) The stock market is up. We could break through the 11,000 point by the end of this week.
4.) Consumer confidence is up.

With numbers like these, Bush's approval numbers should be through the roof. Maybe, President Bush should be giving speeches about the economy, not his phony immigration policy that I am not even going to start ranting about.
