Michelle Obama: We’re In A ‘Huge Recovery’

Michelle Obama said last week that the United States was in a “huge recovery.”

“We are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery,” the First Lady told WPGC 95.5. “Right?  Because of what this president has done.”

The president, she added, had  “pulled this economy from the brink of collapse when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. Now we’re 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.”

“Now, Barack of all people knows that we still have a long way to go to completely rebuild the economy,” Mrs. Obama said. “But we’re headed in the right direction.”
