NYT news flash: hopin' and wishin' away the recession

Bush Predicts No Recession
January 28, 2008
WASHINGTON — President Bush said Monday that he was confident the economy would not slide into a recession, and that the American people are strong enough to promote freedom and peace abroad while their hard work fuels prosperity at home
.

WHERE? In Bushlandia? Sorry pal, we are already in a recession. Waving the American flag, no matter how vigorously, will not prevent the recession we are already IN from deepening, perhaps to a depression, by year's end. Oy, this guy's nuts.

You know, I see these headlines that state things like "Bush concerned about economy" and it just seems like, um, DUH! The rest of us have been concerned for some time now.
