    The headline reads, "Utah well positioned for 'robust expansion' if economic recovery accelerates".

    Well, that's an awfully big "if". Particularly after the results of the last election.

    I wish I could honestly predict differently, but I don't see much chance of any acceleration in the economy as long as the government is pressing as hard as it has...on the brakes.

    It is sort of hard to realize we will continue to have the same type of "recovery" as the past 4 years looking forward at least 4 more years. At least the President showed us the way not to do it and it just hard to be in his remedial class with the rest of the nation, including those that voted for him. Some of those people believe that they will make interest on their entitlements. Look at federal employees and the military somewhat who got reduced or no gains in the past 4 years. He wants the rich to go through the same pain but worse by bailing out the others that want to keep getting free items.

    The Governor's office wants to look good with statistics the ESI has to compensate his conscience for the $13M and $85K from the past. His 1/3 of the cabinet is up for grabs for those that helped get him elected not necessarily better programs, Departments and Agencies that will ensue with new people. How much more of the $13M and $85K type of money will flow to ensure we have an accelerated economy as real estate developers win big.

    Whatever chance we had for a recovery was shot down by the last presidential election.
