Just yesterday CBS Evening News was hyperventilating about how consumers felt the best about the economy that they have felt since 2009, with consumer confidence hitting new heights of polyannaism, and today we have this; about how Americans caused "consumer confidence to suffer its biggest decline in eight months."
The article says that, "Analysts were hoping a slight rise in May would give some credence to the idea that the economy is stabilizing." Yes indeed. Analysts are always just filled with hope for all sorts of things. Tell you what; hope like crazy in one hand and poop in the other, and see which one fills up first.
