Economy

Is the Democrats pessimistic talk about the economy beginning to sink in with people? Are people spending less on fear of the recession Democrats hope will start kicking in before the election?

I don't understand what good talking down a robust, growing economy does for anyone. People around the world are likely saying to themselves, 'if the u.s. economy is slowing down maybe we need to slow things down'.

Its simply the impression of weakness that breeds it sometimes.

That is why I can't vote for a Democrat. Using pessimistic talk and talking about how bad the economy is doesn't do anyone any good. Using this kind of talk to score political points is -- well, in the words of Democrat -- a dirty, dirty maneuver.

Optimistic talk about a bright future is what this country needed. Bush provided steady, determined, unwavering leadership to get us through 9/11 and to get the economy moving again.

Now, to win an election, Democrats try to create doubt, pessimism, and a recession.

Enough to make me want to cry.

I understand that you might not want people depressing the economy by depressing people, but who are the people who are telling you the economy is good? The Republican government. So their view of the economy is equally partisan. And the broadcast channels will naturally trust the government.

We had the same thing in the 1990s. Major said the economy was fine and Labour was "talking it down". It became obvious the economy was in an awful state and we had to elect Blair to fix it.

I think you have an excellent grasp how the economuy works. Bad news in the war. Bad news in politics. It drives the purchasing of product down. Terror alerts that are raised, drives the economy down.

It's talk that does it. You might be too young to remember, but there used to be a commercial about a finance group and it went:

When EF Hutton talks (people freeze in their tracks and look at company rep)..people listen.

You got it? You do. Excellent job
