"Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says many Americans will face hard times for a long time to come. He says President Barack Obama rescued the United States from a second Great Depression and will keep working to strengthen the economy. But Geithner says will be some time before many people feel like the country is recovering. Geithner tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that it's a very tough economy. He says that for a lot of people "it's going to feel very hard, harder than anything they've experienced in their lifetime now, for a long time to come.""
One Fact and 4 questions:
Fact: Obama did Not rescue the US from a 2nd Great Depression- he delayed it.
1) I ask without bias or partisanship- what has Obama done thus far to strengthen the economy? Not strengthen Wall St or markets because he's obviously done that-- I mean, strengthen the total economy? If the answer is nothing, then that ferret Geithner is a Liar.
2) What is a 'recovery'? Really, what is it? In order for a recovery to occur, don't people have to feel it, even minimally? In the beginnings of a recovery, aren't there definite signs that a corner is turned, like improved job numbers or stabilization of real estate prices? If its going to 'be some time' before most Americans feel any recovery, wouldn't that mean currently we are NOT in one?
3) So the US is in a 'very tough economy', yes? Wonder if that's why Timmy is so eager to leave his post as Treasury Secretary after the debt ceiling pretend-drama is over?
4) Did someone actually get Paid to write this mini article at top of posting? In other words, someone is actually able to make a living by writing 3 sentences, adding 1 quote, and attaching 'AP' to it?
There you have it.. terrible people covered by lazy media.
