Obama Contemplating Next ‘Recovery Season’ Drumbeat


Ben Smith is a good reporter, but it’s rather astounding that he can write an entire article headlined, “W.H. dilemma: When to declare recovery” and the words “Recovery Summer” don’t appear in it.

The White House is caught between wanting to tout the administration’s economic accomplishments – and possibly helping to shape the nation’s fiscal mood – and the fear of offending voters by hailing a recovery that many of them have yet to experience.

Er… they already have. They spent most of 2010 doing this.
