In Sean Hannity’s The Great American Blog, he discusses the comment made by President Obama at a press conference. Obama stated that “the private sector is doing fine.” Hannity refers to Obama’s assessment as “absurd.”
During a press conference last week, President Obama declared that ”the private sector is doing fine” and that it was really the public sector that was hurting. Within hours, the president’s absurd assessment of the current state of our economic affairs had ignited a firestorm just about everywhere, from TV to Twitter, from both Republicans and Democrats alike. The list of Democrats distancing themselves from this remark is growing, with prominent figures such as former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and former Obama adviser Steven Rattner stating their disagreement with his remarks.
The statement caused such a stir that even the president himself had to backtrack later that day. David Axelrod, one of Obama’s senior campaign advisers, was sent out to the Sunday morning political shows to do damage control and could not even give a straight answer to the simple question of whether the economy was, in fact, “doing fine.”
Sean Hannity declares that the decay of the U.S. economy is due to President Obama’s policies and the effects of big government. However, our economy was tanking before Obama was sworn into office. In order to get us out of the economic mess we are in presently, Congress must work together for the common good in a bipartisan manner to get things back on track.
