Sun whistling past economic Armageddon

Any notion that The Sun is not liberally biased has been completely dispelled by this ludicrous editorial that portends to put a positive "spin" on an economy teetering on the precipice of financial Armageddon ("Doing better than 'fine,'" June 12).

With soaring deficits, chronic high unemployment, unsustainable entitlements, more Americans on food stamps than at any time in our history, a downgrading of the nation's credit rating for the first time in history with another downgrade looming, just to name a few issues, implying that the U.S. economy is "doing better than fine" is simply delusional!
