“I think the economy has not recovered, and it’s not where it needs to be.”
Not good coming days after Richard Milhous Obama said the private sector was "doing fine." But in Carney's case, he'll just be taken to the Cory Booker/Bill Clinton Memorial Woodshed.
Meanwhile, get the hip boots out tomorrow, because Obama is scheduled to give a "major economic speech" (USA Today, via Sister Toldjah).
President Obama will seek to draw economic contrasts with Republican opponent Mitt Romney in what campaign aides are billing as a major speech on Thursday.
In announcing the address at a community college in Cleveland, the Obama campaign said the president will describe his vision as “ensuring that our economy is built to last and restoring economic security for the middle class.”
Obama also plans to condemn Romney’s vision, which the campaign said is “based on the same failed economic policies that brought on the worst crisis since the Great Depression.
“Romney Economics is familiar and troubling,” said the Obama campaign. “More budget-busting tax cuts for the wealthy; fewer rules for Wall Street — the same formula that benefited a few, but that crashed our economy and devastated the middle class.”
Obama is not expected to unveil any new policy proposals of his own; the president is still trying to persuade Congress to adopt elements of a jobs bill he proposed last year.
