WASHINGTON They're a minority, but a vocal one, and they're hovering like storm clouds over a brittle recovery.

They're the Double Dippers the politicians, economists and analysts who foresee back-to-back recessions.

Their warnings could become self-fulfilling prophecies if they frighten enough people into holding tightly onto their wallets. With consumer spending accounting for two-thirds of economic activity, anything that further rattles consumers can undercut recovery hopes.

Maybee Obama could pass a law prohibiting people from saving money and forcing them to spend it on Chinese crap :o

Excessive spending with money that didn't exist is what got us into this mess in the first place, now they want to fix it with more spending :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
