I am not so much a glass half full sort of guy as it is that people who think the economy is doing poorly (and it's Biden's fault) are uninformed halfwits.
"[When} asked whether they approve or disapprove of Bidenís handling of the market, just 44% said they strongly or somewhat approve compared to 56% who somewhat or strongly disapprove.
In fact, a greater percentage of respondents said they feel the U.S. stock market is doing worse than the year-earlier period than those who said itís doing better.
Those opinions, gathered from Dec. 17 to 20, run counter to what was one of the marketís best years in decades. All three major U.S. equity indexes posted mammoth double-digit gains in 2021 compared to their historical annual average around 7% or 8%.
The S&P 500 finished the year up 26.89% and posted a record close at least once a month. The broad market index notched 70 such record closes in 2021, the second-highest annual total behind 1995′s 77 closing highs." --Source CNBC

Based on my experience, it's gas prices a dollar higher than they were a year ago, higher prices in the grocery store [a Big Meat conspiracy, bahahahahahahahahahaha] and empty spots on the shelves at Wal-Mart that cause us, as you call us, "dimwits" to suspect things ain't right with the economy.
