Good News For Retail

I know another poster that will get a kick out of the first paragraph of this article. You don't even have to read the article... just the first paragraph.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Retailers racked up solid sales last month, proving once again that American consumers are holding tough despite soaring oil and gasoline prices.

What exactly does "holding tough" mean. Does that mean that even through hard economic times Americans are still spending those dollars? Is this like Bush extolling Americans to spend money to help jumpstart the economy after 9/11? How about we don't rely on consumer spending to bail out the poor fiscal policies of this administration? This sounds an awful lot like... just throwing money at the problem. Isn't that supposed to be a trait of the Democrats? Brilliant.

HANGING TOUGH? Amazing. I would love it if they would juxtapose the retail sales with our debt/income ratio. Sometimes hanging tough become stupid as hell.
