Strong Economic Growth Continues

This is sort of a dog-bites-man story, but GDP figures for the first quarter have been revised upward, and now show a growth rate of 3.5%. This means that the high energy prices prevailing at that time did not slow the economy as much as had been expected, and testifies once again to the strength of the current economic expansion, which has now continued for four years.

UPDATE: This is very funny–one of the left-wing hate sites points out that this story is from last May. I swear I linked to it off the Post’s main page last night, but it did occur to me that it seemed awfully late to be updating first quarter numbers.

In any event, given the nature of recent headlines, I think it’s time for us conservatives to start recycling good news. Tomorrow we’ll report that John Roberts has been nominated to the Supreme Court.
