And 2.5 is an absolutely ridiculous pipe-dream at that.  Try 1.7 and only with some fancy counting.

I dare say that fully 75% of Americans can't tell you what GDP stands for, let alone define it's significance. The public is stupid in a way that is worthy of contempt. GDP has become a number for wonks, with virtually no meaning to the average American. That average American is checking their iphone 5 for the start time of American Idol and setting their DVR to record Honey Boo Boo.
