Over the weekend, Democrats were repeatedly tripped up over the question of whether or not Americans are actually better off today than they were four years ago, and as Ed recounted this morning, Obama campaign spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter maintains that President Obama’s “incomplete” self-assessment on the economy is totally hunky dory. Paul Ryan, as you might expect, disagrees somewhat. Just thought I’d offer this up because, as per usual, Ryan offers a simple and succinct rejoinder to just how ludicrous Team Obama’s grandiose claims about economic recovery are becoming. The American people are not impressed. Via RCP, around 2:15:

“The president is asking people just to be patient with him,” Republican Party vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan said on CBS’s “This Morning” today about Obama’s grade for himself. “Look, Charlie, the kind of recession we have, we should be bouncing out of it creating jobs. We’re not creating jobs near the pace [we] could.” …

“If that kind of economics work, we would be entering a golden age along with Greece,” Ryan said of Obama’s spending policies. “So I think the ‘incomplete’ speaks for itself and that is why I think that we are going to win this and get this country back on the right track because we’re offering bold solutions.”

Oh, how the times have changed! It seems like only yesterday when President Obama was giving himself a “solid B+,” which would have been an even better grade but for the items left undone — and now that even more of those action items have come to pass, it’s kind of funny how we still haven’t seen anything even resembling B+ results.
