    Agree with Bbro. Accelerating growth in a indicator like retail sales portends strong resilience of the US economy and shows it's strength under current global slowdown.

    Ignore the economic news and just make a pointless political statement. Obama is to blame for gas prices? Really? He controls the price of crude?
