    One of these two scenarios is very likely to be happening when this summit is going on:
    1 – There are evident signs that the economy as a whole is recovering.
    2 – There are evident signs that the economy as a whole is not recovering.

    If you are an regular, common sense and sane American you're wishing that the scenario 1 is the one that will come true.

    If you are a Republican you're probably wishing that the scenario 2 happens.

    Let the bashing begin...

    Tom Bachman, if you don't like it leave. Most Pittsburgher's are proud of their city. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, our housing market has remained stable, building and development continue at a remarkable pace, and yes we have the Steelers and the Penguins. The only thing we have that we can spare are as rep Murtha put it, a bunch of gun toting, bible thumping, rednecks. I beleive that includes the like of you.

    Ryan,

    Check the recent economic indicators. Wall Street. And, consumer confidence. We are already seeing signs of recovery. Most economists are now saying the end of the recession is in sight.

    Do you think this would be the case under McCain or the bubblehead from Alaska?

    Hey Marc,
    Just so you know, I am a guy with regular, common sense and sane American; therefore, I’m wishing that the scenario 1 to come true. Do you honestly see the signs that the economy as whole is recovering? I certainly hope it is recovering, though. I know for a fact, it takes time.
