Americans' view on economy reaches 8-year highs

Ok, that's decent good news but the reason I'm posting is one little bit at the end of the article.

" A year ago, just 16 percent of the public gave the economy good marks, and it was just 4 percent at the beginning of the 2008 recession."

"...carries a margin of error of 3.5 percent."

So the 0.5%ers were happy at the beginning of the recession, if you are the stats half full

I wonder if this beauty, IMO (and not me), 'works it' in her OTHER day job;

The photo in the local rag (Columbus Dispatch) is much more flattering.

"After raising alarms earlier this year for promoting her new real-estate business on Twitter, state Rep. Anne Gonzales is prompting ethical concerns by sending email solicitations directly to Statehouse lobbyists."

"A number of lobbyists received an email from the Westerville Republican this week that included her picture and the solicitation: “If this time of year finds you beginning to consider a new residence, allow me to assist. I am a member of the Sotheby’s International Realty network and take great pride in finding the right home for you.”'

Then there's the problem with the Hillary response and her ways of explaining the email fiasco;

"Asked if it’s a problem that some of those solicitations go to Statehouse lobbyists, Gonzales said: “My database consists of family and friends, and I do the best I can to manage that list."

And the internets are not the place to post because they don't forget;

"Gonzales drew attention in late January for a different mixing of her public and private occupations. On a Twitter account that she had used primarily in her capacity as a state legislator, Gonzales tweeted: “I am real estate agent! Let me know how I can help you with listing or buying a home.” It included a link to her business page."

Of course she deleted the tweet!

I got the picture from flicker but not sure if it will show.
