My Way News forwards an AP feed which says, in part:

The New York-based research group reported that its index for consumer confidence rose to 106.1 in July, up from 102.8 in June and well ahead of the figure of 102.0 that investors had been expecting. It was the highest level for the indicator since June 2002.

This is a fourth straight rise in the monthly consumer confidence rating. No matter how the Democrats spin and whine about ‘the worst economy since the depression…(a demonstrably untrue statement, in any case) They can’t spin or wish this one away, folks.
