This must be a joke. Is Obama living in an alternate reality? He can’t possibly expect the American people to believe this hogwash! How can Carney even stammer through this with a straight face?
“The President believes that the economy will continue to grow.” Continue to grow? The economy is essentially stagnant, and we may be heading into a double dip recession.
“The economy will continue to create jobs.” Unemployment remains around 9%. The jobs reports have been abysmal.
Now, in typical Obama fashion, he and his administration are blaming the drop in the market to the tsunami in Japan, unrest in the Middle East and the situation in Europe. I guess they’ll have to, since they can’t continue to blame Bush after 2 1/2 years….and, Debbie Wasserman Schultz said herself that Democrats own the economy. How about attributing it to a severe shortage of confidence in the market, due to a pathetic debt deal and a lack of ideas from this administration (other than his nagging message of class warfare)?
But rest easy. It’s all going to be ok, because Obama is having meetings and urging Congress to pass things….in between his fundraisers and vacations, of course.
