Consumer confidence: "No we can't"

Consumer confidence has dropped to the lowest point since George W. Bush's last full month as president, according to a new Rasmussen poll.  It said:

The index has now fallen 20 points over the course of the past three days. Confidence is down 10 points over the past week and down six points from a month ago. The index is currently just a point shy of the lowest level recorded this year.

The result, no doubt of Obama raising expectations that were impossible to meet. Blame that on Bush, too.
