    OMG, from +2B to -5.4B? Somebody added instead of subtract some big numbers. I mean with that kind of revision, how useful can these numbers be?

    Need to look at the adjustment relative to the total. It's been revised down 2.36% from $2,446,400 million to $2,390,000 million.

    It just continues the theme - almost every economic number has been revised downward a month after it is announced. It's just the Obamunist's way of trying to make economic perception the reality. Lie today and maybe it will come true!

    How many times do we have to repeat - it is not about Obama. It is about dems and reps and special interest screwing the economy together for the lst 20 + years. Grrrrr.

    Didn't Paulson (and Geithner) say that we HAD to bailout the banks because otherwise they wouldn't lend?

     

    How about if people don't want to borrow?
