Shock Fact: Gallup Finds Consumer Confidence Plummets To 2008 Level

As Yogi Bera would say: "It's Deja Vu all over again!"

Gallup's measure of consumer confidence is plummeting. After a precipitous drop caused by the government shutdown and the irresponsible talk of default, consumer confidence is back to 2008 levels. That's when the stock market fell 57%, GDP collapsed 8.9%, and unemployment soared.

GOP radicals are happy and confident about the shutdown and the consequences of default. The rest of us are nervous and becoming downright afraid.

John Boehner has a choice: support his radical caucus or America's economy. He cannot do both!
