Obama: ‘We Tried Our Plan, And It Worked.’



Text  



As stressful as “You didn’t build that” appears to the for the Obama camp, I think this presidential assertion is going to be more damaging:

Forty-one straight months of unemployment above 8 percent,  8.2 million people working part-time who want full-time work, a record 88 million Americans not in the labor force, 1.9 percent GDP growth in the past quarter, more bad GDP numbers expected tomorrow, a stagnant housing market, $5 trillion in new debt, the downgrading of the U.S. credit rating,  38 percent of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, 45 million Americans on food stamps, food prices continuing to increase dramatically, the poverty level likely to rise to the highest level in nearly fifty years

… and this means the plan “worked”?!?

Between “the private sector is doing fine,” “you didn’t build that” and “we tried our plan, and it worked,” the president sounds unhinged.
