Economy Humming Along

Despite the hurricanes that ravaged the gulf coast, our economy continues to be strong. Employment grew by 215,000 jobs in November and the 3rd quarter saw 4.3% GDP growth. That was the 10th straight quarter of 3% or greater growth in the GDP, better than any period of growth during the Clinton Administration.

Despite what this AP article says, the President's job approval numbers seem to be improving. In the only survey taken entirely after Thanksgiving by Fox News (which had him at 36% in their last poll for those of you who think they are biased), his job approval climbed 6% to 42%, not great, but climbing.
