    Yes, the economy is so horrible! Over 200,000 private sector jobs created - in December. Housing and construction improving.

    Oh, and the Big 3 saw auto sales up about 10% in December - does that mean nothing? All 3 bullish on 2013 sales as well.

    No, there was nothing "dismal" - retail sales grew .7%.  Yes, slower than the 3% expected, but look at the effect of Sandy, which is expected to account for 1 point of lost growth, and the whole fiscal cliff crap certainly put a damper on things. These are both temporary effects, and do not in any way give a good sense of the economy.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
