Dept. of the Obvious: Consumer Confidence Down

Let’s see, my 401K is worth half of what it was six months ago, we’re facing a gazillion-dollar deficit, the thank-god-it’s-almost-over presidential race has turned into the greatest exchange of negativity since Rick Pitino sparred with the Boston media, and it looks like it might snow tonight. No surprise then that today’s headlines shout Consumer Confidence at All-Time Low.

I do not need The Conference Board to tell me what I already knew.
