Happy Talk, Sad Results - Obama Economy Contracts
Despite News Of A Shrinking Economy, The Democrat Leader Continues To Repeat Party Talking Points
Four Years Of Dem Rhetoric:‘An Economic Recovery Has Begun’
2011: President Obama: ‘We are now turning the corner.’ “We didn’t just rescue the economy we put it on the strongest footing for the future. … Here’s the good news, because of these historic efforts, we are now turning the corner.” (“Obama: 'We're Turning The Corner,'” Politico, 3/8/11)
2010:“Vice President Joe Biden Thursday helps kick off what the White House calls ‘Recovery Summer,’ A Six Week Long Push To Highlight What The Administration Says Will Be Jobs Created This Summer And Fall By A Surge In Federal Stimulus Spending Across The Country.” (“White House Begins New Stimulus Push,” CNN, 6/17/10)
2009: Vice President Biden: The stimulus will “literally drop-kicks us out of this recession.” “This is a monumental project, but I think it's doable. But I just think we got to stay on top (inaudible) and we got to stay on top of that on a weekly basis. Because this is about getting this out and spent in 18 months to create 3.5 million jobs and do -- to set -- tee this up so the rest of the good work that's being done here literally drop-kicks us out of this recession and we begin to grow again and begin to employ people again.” (Vice President Biden, Remarks At Recovery Plan Implementation Meeting, The White House, 2/25/09)
Unemployment Rate: 7.8%(“The Unemployment Situation – December 2012,” Bureau Of Labor Statistics, 1/4/13) Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY): “Yesterday, we learned that our economy contracted for the first time in more than three years. This news comes, of course, after President Obama spent an entire election promising Americans that a return to robust economic growth was right around the corner, and little more than a week after the President said in his inaugural address that ‘economic recovery has begun.’” (Sen. McConnell, Floor Remarks, 1/31/13) Tags:Democrat, Happy Talk, Sad Results, the economy, GDP, GDP decreased, gross domestic product,To share or post to your site, click on "Post Link".
