From the BEA:

Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 2.2 percent in the third quarter of 2009 ...
GDP was revised down from the advance estimated of 3.5% to the preliminary estimate of 2.8%, and now to 2.2%.

Personal consumption expenditures (PCE) were revised down to 2.8% from 2.9%.

And investment in nonresidential structures was revised down to -18.4% from -15.1% (aka falling off a cliff).
