Michelle Obama said in a radio interview with WPGC 95.5 co-host Pablo Sato that the United States is in the "midst of a huge recover" due to what "this president has done."
Obama was asked what she though the state of the union is and her answer was, “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.”
Pablo's sidekick, Antoinette Marie Wright, better known by her stage name "Free," responded to Obama's comments with "Yes," as though she understood what Obama was talking about.
“Pulled this economy from the brink of collapse when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month," Obama said. "Now were gaining every -- throughout most of his presidency, we’ve been adding jobs to this economy because of what he’s been doing. The stock market has doubled. Housing prices are rising. Foreclosure rates are lowering. But in the face of that, you still have people trying to convince us that things aren’t better.”
Obama continued, “And that just doesn’t make sense. Now, Barack of all people knows that we still have a long way to go to completely rebuild the economy. But we’re headed in the right direction. And when you see all of that truth, it’s hard to understand why are people blocking this? Why are people talking about not raising taxes on wealthy people? Why is it that people don't want to fight to make sure that veterans have job opportunities?”
In a moment of brown nosing, Free chimed in "They just like to talk, Mrs. Obama."
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 1.3 percent in the second quarter of 2012 (that is, from the first quarter to the second quarter), according to the "third" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 2.0 percent.
GDP is flailing and sputtering. It has been going downhill for a while now, not recovering. The unemployment numbers released recently simply bring us right back to where we were when Barack Obama took office and that is at 7.8%, but we all know how those numbers can be fudged and most definitely are being manipulated for political purposes.Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
