US consumer confidence dips as jobs outlook dims

I forget, is this the Hope or the Change?

Americans’ confidence in the economy fell slightly in September from August, as many became less optimistic about hiring and pay increases over the next six months.

The Conference Board, a New York-based private research group, says its consumer confidence index dropped to 79.7 in September. That’s down from August’s reading of 81.8.

At least they didn’t say “unexpectedly.” Because by now we all know what to expect while Obama is still president.
