We’re “in the midst of a huge recovery,” says FLOTUS. Who knew?

posted at 2:41 pm on October 15, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Is this the campaign meme that Team Obama is going to aggressively start pushing at us with three weeks to go? Of course they often iterate that things are going better than they are, that these things take time, and that there were always going to be “bumps in the road” on the way to recovery, but are they now offensively trying to get us all to deny the signs of reality staring us in the face and just lure us into the attractive self-deception that we’re actually in the middle of a glorious economic rebound? That seems to be the story that Michelle Obama was shooting for during a radio interview on Friday, but, call me crazy… somehow I’m just not seeing it. Via CNSNews:

Mrs. Obama said, “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.” …

Obama: “Pulled this economy from the brink of collapse when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. 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: “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?

The Obama campaign struck much the same tone in a brand new ad out today in which various Main-Streeters attest to the ways in which their businesses have improved because of the president’s policies since the official recession:

Well, if we can all just force ourselves to forget the pesky facts of Barack Obama’s tenure, like the fact that median household incomes have shrunk; that our high unemployment rate has remained near-stagnant and only dropped slightly because of so many people dropping out of the labor force; that economists are predicting the unemployment rate isn’t likely to get better anytime soon; that our current economic growth, practically isn’t; and etcetera… then sure, I suppose we can all suddenly delude ourselves into embracing Team Obama’s newfound pride over the president’s economic record. My brain could use a rest anyways.

3 possible reasons for this…

a) They actually believe their stupid “Romney talking down the economy is a self-fulfilling prophecy” and they think the opposite will do the opposite

b) They are starting to see the writing on the wall so they are throwing out the biggest lie possible to see if they can possibly stem the tide

c) They think people are stupid when in fact they are stupid

Okay, maybe a 4th

d) All of the above.

Don’t laugh kids. You’re going to hear them cite the trumped up numbers from the BLS etc. as evidence. And, in my travels in various states in New England (CT, MA, VT) and NY on my bike and my car, there is a lot of roadwork going on with humans at the sites, all of which started only recently and which, to me, seems designed to goose the jobs figures with highway jobs during the month or two before the election. It is a remarkable uptick in those highway jobs, and its pervasive.

These folks will use every trick available.

Another side of the economic nightmare that O is spawning, that we don’t want to ignore, is INFLATION. Wholesale prices rose 1.1% in September following a 1.7% gain in August. These are one month increases. This is a direct result of O’s war on energy and his treasonous “quantitative easing,” or money printing.
Continuous high unemployment + high inflation = stagflation like in the days of Carter. Very not good.

Michelle would make an unconvincing Chip Diller — or, rather, too convincing (picture an angry First Lady warning all those people of the streets of Faber running from the Homecoming Parade they better stop messing with her right now if they know what’s good for them…). If her husband loses, she’s not going to be a happy camper on Nov. 7 (or a quiet and restrained one, if someone sticks a microphone in her face).

Clinton’s Labour Secretary and Progressive, Robert Reich: Obama’s Recovery Is For The 1%:

…Yet it’s almost a certainty that all the gains went to the top 10 percent, and the lion’s share to the top 1 percent. Over a third of the gains went to 15,600 super-rich households in the top one-tenth of one percent.

But the rest of America isn’t enjoying an economic recovery. It’s still sick. Many Americans remain in critical condition.

According to an analysis of tax returns by Emmanuel Saez and Thomas Piketty, the top 1 percent pocketed 93 percent of the gains in 2010. 37 percent of the gains went to the top one-tenth of one percent. No one below the richest 10 percent saw any gain at all.

In fact, most of the bottom 90 percent have lost ground. Their average adjusted gross income was $29,840 in 2010. That’s down $127 from 2009, and down $4,843 from 2000 (all adjusted for inflation).

http://robertreich.org/post/20171217334

That makes sense, since most of Obama’s measures have been aimed not at creating jobs for the middle class, but at enriching his friends, allies, and union bosses. The rich continue to get richer – and much faster – under Obama, even as he claims the mantle of class warrior.

Things are fantastic, and getting better! Over 80% of Americans actually live above the poverty line, and almost 70% of the labor force actually has some kind of job!! Already, 47% of Americans are getting cash– that’s right– cash from their government! If you’re one of those lucky people, you already know why you should vote for Obama!! If you’re not, then vote for Obama so, in the next term, you, too, can get an Obama-Phone, and free cash from your government!!! 47% is great, but we want more– in the next term, the 99% will live entirely on money taken and “spread around” from the 1%! Good times are comin’!!

You’re up against nascent totalitarianism now America, right here, right now — in all its forms of newspeak and doublespeak and lies. It has hidden itself well in its pretty chrysalis. It is readying itself for its full emergence. Four more years is all it needs. What will you do?

rrpjr on October 15, 2012 at 3:10 PM

Well, if we can all just force ourselves to forget the pesky facts

Outstanding job of cherry-picking facts. Anyone who anticipated anything other than a long balance sheet recession or depression after a once in a lifetime financial crisis and massive asset bubble collapse had completely unrealistic expectations. Not that you should give Obama full credit for adverting another great depression- action from the Fed to prevent the financial system from crashing was the most critical element:
http://www.businessinsider.com/us-bailout-success-2012-9

As housing prices continue to rise and consumer sentiment maintains its uptrend, there’s no doubt that a recovery is underway. Of course, unemployment in the new economy is at or near zero, with McKinsly Global estimating that millions of positions will go unfilled in that part of the economy over the next decade as Americans remain under-prepared to compete in the global economy.

For the rest of the economy, I’m far from convinced that a 20% across the board income tax cut and higher spending on defense will reverse the deficit or fix US account deficits.

OMG! The October Surprise! Mitt Romney owns stock in Sensata Technologies, which is laying off workers in Illinois and outsourcing jobs to China. Once this fact gets out, it will derail his campaign! We’ve got this thing in the bag!

- MSNBC, Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Democratic Underground, MotherJones, etc

“For many sophisticated and wealthy investors, as well as for ordinary workers invested in pension funds, China is a part of any diversified investment strategy. President Obama, a former Illinois state senator, has as much as $100,000 in a state retirement plan that contains shares of Sensata Technologies, the same auto parts company controlled by Bain that is closing its Illinois factory.”

If Obama brings up the issue of outsourcing jobs tomorrow — and I’m sure he will, I hope Romney starts out by saying:

“Well, I know one thing for sure. I will not outsource the security of our nation’s diplomatic posts to foreigners, as you did when you hired a Scottish firm with little experience to provide security to our consulate in Benghazi, which then turned around and hired locals for $4 an hour at a post that had already been attacked by terrorists months earlier.”

You see, Michelle, there’s the rub. “We” – meaning you, Barack and the government – can’t rebuild the economy. That is your fundamental problem; you don’t understand economics. Nor, does your flailing/failing husband.

The best thing your “we” can do is to get out of the way so the rest of “us” can be rebuild the economy. The only people who can rebuild the economy are those who are actual participants in the economy. I think this is the best example ever of getting all “we we’d up” and we’d all be better off if you’d cut it out.

I’m not sure what’s more upsetting. The fact that this administration trots out this bravo sierra for their own cynical political gain…or that supposedly rational, reasonable adults buy it.

It breaks my heart that millions of people out there are suffering because of this man’s policies….and they don’t matter. (They don’t even exist to the government after a long enough period.) Like Chris Stevens, they’re all just simple pawns to be sacrificed on statism’s altar. Huge swaths of perfectly disposable people.

And Obama’s partying hard with Jay Z and their champagne pyramid.

I’ve reached my reservoir limit of contempt for these cretins. And I don’t thin I’m alone.

When Obama was elected the average home value in California was $280,000.00, to day it is $238,000.000, that’s a 15.27 percent drop in value… No… That is not a recovery….

Before Hussein took office, he lived in a house bought for him by Rezko.
Now he has a house worth $ 35 Mil ( or so they say) in Hawaii.
That is a recovery .

0bama and his ideology is retarding our economy.

I expect significant improvement as we step back from the brink of complete socialism.

Everyone seems to have misinterpreted.

What she meant is that they are re-upholstering the furniture in the WhiteHouse.

I think the Obamas can barely hide their contempt for the American people. They had to sacrifice their annual glitzy summer vacation at Martha’s Vineyard this year, complete with his/hers jet rides and motorcades.

Probably didn’t want to risk looking like elitist snobs, not in an election year. They think we’re too stupid to remember all of the other vacations over the past four years.

I predict shortly after the election, win or lose, Michelle will thumb her nose at the taxpayers and go on another huge vacation similar to the Spain trip.
