Obamanomics: Barack Obama’s Mouthpiece Jay Carney Says Economy “Vastly Improved” Since Obama Took Office
Welcome to more Obama in Wonderland …
In honor of Baghdad Bob and all the spin, stretching of the truth and lies that he was known for comes Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. This Obama minion and tool actually has the audacity to say that the economy is vastly improved since Barack Obama took office. Really, who knew? How do these people make such comments and keep a straight face?
Relax, all is well … the economy is vastly improved
Watch the VIDEO at RCP and see transcript below:
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney: “Well, two things remain uncontestably true. The economy is vastly improved from what it was when Barack Obama was sworn into office as president. We were in economic free-fall. There were predictions that we were headed to the second Great Depression. We were losing up to, over 700,000 jobs a month, we were contracting at greater than 6 percent — our economy was. So, the economy has improved. It has not improved enough.
“Well, there’s no question that we face headwinds, and the president has been very direct about that. And we need to do everything we can, across the front, to ensure we’re doing what we can to spur growth, spur job creation.”
HUH??? What alternate universe do these people live in? What does this Administration think they are going to campaign on in 2012? Does Obama actually think he is going to get away with “Hope & Change”, the economy is better and let his have another four years to have his policies work? Seriously, what planet are these people from?
VASTLY IMPROVED! As noted at Michelle Malkin.com, the unemployment, gas prices and other numbers hardly play into Obama’s narrative.
When Obama took office the unemployment rate was 7.2 percent — today, two and a half years later, it’s 9.2 percent. Gas was about $1.79 a gallon when Obama took office. Today it’s $3.68. There are around 13 million more people on food stamps today than there were in January of 2009.
