Moran: 'The economy has recovered'
The Hill ^ | 06/26/10 | Eric Zimmermann

Posted on 06/26/2010 4:50:09 PM PDT by nhwingut

The economy has recovered from the recession, Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) said last night.

It's a case that many Democrats would likely be scared to embrace, given the still-high unemployment rate.

"In the last six months, more jobs were created than Bush was able to generate in eight years," Moran said on MSNBC's Hardball. "People don't understand that. The economy has recovered."

LMAO... Yeah. If you only count jobs created -- and not the 5 million jobs lost!

Zero is well on his way to becoming the first prez in history with not ONE NEW NET job.

I’d try to encourage the dems to tout ‘the economy has recovered’ mantra. Tell everyone they saved us from the ‘worst down turn since the Great Depression’ and then next year (or some say as long as three years) when reality comes calling with a vengence, they’ll have no one else to blame.

Lets go to vegas, and get away from the crowds, for another discount holiday.

Lets read the paper and see how the real estate market is still softening, how gdp is negative, unemployment still rising.....

Let’s hope the GOP runs with this like the RATS tried to push the Barton statement.

Ads would be great. Unemployment lines, food kitchens, foreclosure signs -— MORON: We’ve recovered!

What a crock of crap. When I see dump trucks, cement mixers and loaded flat beds driving constantly down the areas roads, that’s when I’ll know the economy has recovered. He can keep his smoke and mirror jobs.

They can’t have it both ways. If the economy has recovered, all those jobs created must have been given away to illegals.

He is right. Unemployment under 5% for Bush, near 10% for Obama... YET Obama has created more jobs... I don't understand that at all.

Sounds like Moran has been spending 'way too much time inside the Beltway.

In his DC enclave, his party controls the Senate, the House, and the WH. Everything's going their way. Everyone he knows has a (gov't) job, and more friends and relatives are getting hired each day. Money's not a problem, he and his pals can have however much they want printed up. Health care? Not a problem. Retirement? In the bag.

He reminds me of the Liberal who couldn't understand how Reagan got elected, because nobody he knew voted for him. He has absolutely no clue what's going on out there in the real world.

Hey MORON, roll down the window in your limo and get your head out once in a while.

SAM quote: “Only a ‘moran’ would say the economy has recovered.”

And yes, whoever’s running against him can use this in their campaign ads against Moran.

Moran should talk to Joe Biden more often. Joe just said all of the jobs lost cannot be recovered. On what basis has the economy recovered, Jim Moran? We do not see it here in Virginia.

There was no census during the Bush years.

Dim rep Jim Moron seems to be unaware of the fact that nearly half a million of those jobs were temp jobs as part of the census. Actually, a cousin of mine, a retired agricultural department worker, was hired by the government 2 different times for the same job. After the first set of confirmations were finished, he was let go and then was approached to do another set. Once that was done, he was let go again, and when they approached him for a third set, he told them that he had had enough. So my cousin was counted as two of those jobs. And they only lasted a few weeks.

All that I know is my state has over 11% unemployment, and that is not counting the number of people that have stopped looking for jobs and not filing for unemployment. If the economy has recovered, it missed us. I have yet to meet anyone that believes that we are at full employment. If the economy is doing so well, why is the stock market stuck at 10,000? Moran is an idiot.
