Bush: lights are on, but nobody’s home.

It was a beautiful day today, so I went for a walk with my sons. And I brought my camera. These are some examples of what is happening in my neighborhood, to beautiful perfectly good homes. Many of these homes are also standing absolutely empty.

Friends who work for home builders and realtor companies are on the cusp of losing their jobs, large sections of land being built on stands vacant, gas prices are soaring, food prices are soaring, health insurance costs are soaring. Are we in a recession? Nahhhhhhh….

Bush’s view of the economy was decidedly rosier than that of many economists, who say the country is nearing recession territory or may already be there. “I’m concerned about the economy,” he said. “I don’t think we’re headed to recession.”
