Obama promises more than 600,000 stimulus jobsWASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says the United States remains in a deep recession that will take considerable time to escape.
Obama met at the White House with his top administration officials on Monday to hear an update on his $787 billion spending plan. Obama says he is not satisfied with progress and told his Cabinet that administration leaders need to push ahead.
Okay... so we're in a deep hole and it's gonna take a while.
Didn't he just say:
U.S. economy has stepped back from brink: Obama - Yahoo! NewsBEVERLY HILLS, California (Reuters) – The U.S. economy is showing signs of stabilizing after suffering the worst economic crisis in decades, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday.
"When you look at the economy right now, I think it's safe to say we have stepped back from the brink, that there is some calm that didn't exist before," Obama said at a fund-raiser for the Democratic National Committee.
Obama took credit for a large share of the turnaround, saying his young administration had accomplished as much or more in its first four months as any administration since Franklin Delano Roosevelt's in the 1930s.
So a few weeks ago he was all "Look what I did for you all! LOVE ME!!!"
Now it's "Things are bleak, we aren't doing enough..."
Why do people trust this guy?
