This is just another foot-shot for the president. It’s actually rather easy -- remove shoe, lift foot, take aim and slowly pull the trigger.
From a report at the link below:
Earlier today, President Obama twice commented at a press conference in the White House that "the private sector is doing fine."
That was this morning.
This afternoon he said, "It's absolutely clear the economy is not doing fine."
The President said again, “The economy is not doing fine. There are too many people out of work."
"The housing market is still weak, too many homes underwater and that’s precisely why I asked Congress to start taking some steps that can make a difference."
The president's second round of comments on the economy are being called a 'backtrack' and a 'clarification.' But it actually appears that Obama decided to double-down on his earlier remarks.
It is obvious that Obama’s ‘handlers’ prompted the President’s reversal.
His handlers are no doubt pleased that this flip-flop happened on a Friday hoping that most people were pre-occupied with the upcoming weekend and by Monday folks may have forgotten his words.
