It's the WHOLE economy, stupid.

As Bush goes on and on about how good the economy is, Think Progress points out some truths that show just where this good economy is going.
1. The Unemployment Rate Would Be 6.6% if As Many People Were Looking for Work Today as Were When President Bush Took Office.

2. Both Average Real Weekly and Average Real Hourly Wages were Down in 2005 – and Indeed are Down for the 4 years Since the End of the Recession.

3. The Rate of Job Growth for the Fourth Year of a Recovery is the Weakest it has Been Since the 1930s.
Go to the TP Post for some really good statistics and great links.
