It’s not often that you hear Pres. Obama brag about his economic accomplishments — and point out just how wrong his Republican critics have been in their predictions of economic gloom — but that’s exactly what happened earlier today.
In just three minutes, he eviscerated six years of Republican lies, hysteria, and distortion about his reasonable (and provably successful) economic policies and initiatives.
Now that every major economist agrees that the economy has made a huge turnaround since the days of the Bush Recession, Pres. Obama used economic facts, history, and reality to point out just how wrong his Republican critics have been all along.
One by one, he lists off Republican’s very own economic predictions from the last 6 years and puts them to rest with the facts.
Kudos to the president for finally letting loose and calling it like it is.
