08/26/2005: Polls & Numbers Tell More Than One Tale...
Paul Krugman (NY Times) has a good one about why the bAdmin "Feel Good" economic numbers just don't Feel Good for many Americans:
Summer of our Discontent:
"For the last few months there has been a running debate about the U.S. economy, more or less like this:
American families: "We're not doing very well.
Washington officials: "You're wrong - you're doing great. Here, look at these statistics!"
But when your numbers tell you that people should be feeling good, but they aren't, that means you're looking at the wrong numbers.
American families don't care about G.D.P. They care about whether jobs are available, how much those jobs pay and how that pay compares with the cost of living. And recent G.D.P. growth has failed to produce exceptional gains in employment, while wages for most workers haven't kept up with inflation."
Gee - ya think this has anything to do with any of the other "Less Than Feeling Good Numbers" of the sinking Dumbya bAdmin poll numbers showing 58 disapprove to 40 approve of his handling of anything - Iraq, Gas Prices, Ecomony, Vacations.
