“Think about it. I’ve spent the last six and half years yanking this economy out of the worst recession since the great depression."
Wow. I can't believe he actually said that. It's amazing and quite revealing.
I bet his back and hammies are KILLING him!
The economy actually came out of recession in June of 2009, so I'm not sure exactly what BHO has been yanking on the last 5 years.
Seriously, how to read this? One way is to say that fiscal policy and regulation control the economy and BHO has done a terrible job of yanking (or blame it on some other incompetent yankers like the damn Republicans). Another is to say that fiscal policy and regulation has very little to do with cyclic swings in the economy and BHO has been yanking in vain for 6.5 years!
I lean toward the latter view.
