If recovery means placing more people on food stamps than at any other time in our history, or seeing record numbers of people dropping completely out of the work force, then yes, we are in the midst of a huge recovery.

Via CNS News:

First Lady Michelle Obama said in a radio interview on Friday that the United States is in the “midst of a huge recovery” because of what “this president has done.”

Pablo Sato, co-host of Pablo & Free on WPGC 95.5, a Washington, D.C.-area hip-hop radio station, asked the first lady:  “Mrs. Obama, you know what, in your words, tell us what you think the state of the union is in right now?”

Mrs. Obama said, “I mean, we are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery. Right?  Because of what this president has done.”

Median family income – significantly lower.

Gas prices – significantly higher.

National debt- $6 trillion greater.

Real unemployment – nearly doubled.

Welcome to the huge recovery, America.
