That is why I have moved quickly to work with my economic team and leaders of both parties on an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that will immediately jumpstart job creation and long-term growth.
And as we see the unemployment rate continue to spike, in some areas above 15%, enter the weasel words:
"This legislation was designed to cushion the downturn," said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. "That's why we have always talked about this as one function of economic recovery."
"It's always challenging to explain that things getting less bad is actually a necessary path on the way to them being good, but that's the truth," Bernstein said. "The trends have to go recession, stabilization, recovery. Negative, less negative, positive."
"Less Bad"? The only industry that is currently solvent due to Obama is the firearm industry and that's because he threatened to end it. Unemployment is rising. Businesses are failing. Banks are still tanking. People are still defaulting on mortgages at record rates.
And this is 'stabilized'?
Yet w/ constant evidence of Obama throwing people under the bus and mismanaging this nation into the ground, his most ardent supporters still cry out "I believe".
And the irony is is that a large proportion of those people are the same ones that attack(ed) fervent Bush supporters for doing the exact same thing.
