Michelle says we are in the middle of a huge recovery…
IBD says: “Well, Sweetie, maybe in the DC party circuit but not in Peoria.”:
Michelle Obama recently described this recovery as “huge.” Maybe she forgot what decade it is. The Reagan recovery in the ’80s was huge. But the one her husband’s policies have given us? Not so much.
A Washington, D.C., hip-hop station host asked Michelle to “in your words, tell us what you think the state of the union is in right now?”
Her answer: “I mean, we are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery. Right? Because of what this president has done.”
We wholeheartedly agree with the first lady that the current state of the economy is the result of “what this president has done.”
But to call Obama’s recovery — which started just five months after he took office and is now in its 40th month — “huge” shows just how detached from reality the White House has become.
