(CNSNews.com) – Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States, said on Friday that the United States is in the “midst of a huge recovery” because of what “this president has done.”

In an interview, Pablo Sato, co-host of Pablo & Free on WPGC 95.5, a D.C.- metropolitan 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.”

Free: “Yes.”

Obama: “Pulled this economy from the brink of collapse when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. Now were gaining every -- throughout most of his presidency, we’ve been adding jobs to this economy because of what he’s been doing. The stock market has doubled. Housing prices are rising. Foreclosure rates are lowering. But in the face of that, you still have people trying to convince us that things aren’t better.”

Free: “Uh huh.”

Obama: “And that just doesn’t make sense. Now, Barack of all people knows that we still have a long way to go to completely rebuild the economy. But we’re headed in the right direction. And when you see all of that truth, it’s hard to understand why are people blocking this? Why are people talking about not raising taxes on wealthy people? Why is it that people don't want to fight to make sure that veterans have job opportunities?”

Free: “They just like to talk, Mrs. Obama.”

The only recovery the Michelle is concerned about is her DH’s one in on election day.

Michelle definitely doesn’t live in the same universe as the rest of us. Most folks are not so reality-challenged, & she’s probably going to annoy/alienate some Independents with such a comment.

I do believe we are still losing jobs every month no matter how much Communist propaganda Obama’s administration attempts to spew that there is a recovery.

We are not adding enough jobs to even account for the increase in population much less getting those that lost their jobs back to work.

About the same time 4 years ago, McCain was saying the fundamentals of our economy are strong.

” Pulled this economy from the brink of collapse when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month.”

Liar. We lost 750 thousand jobs for one month. That was bushs last month in office. There was no loss of 800 thousand jobs “a month”, plural.

Yes, Michelle, we are in the midst of a huge recovery. It’s called an election. After November 6 the recovery will accelerate. After January 20 it will be in full swing.

Don’t let the door hit you in the butt on the way out.

How? Independents do not read Free Republic or listen to Rush, Hannity, Savage, or any other source of conservative opinion.

95 percent of WPGC's listeners believe Michelle Obama.

The Associated Press will not cover Obama's so-called gaffe, much less give it its deserved ridicule. Nor will Reuters or any of the network or cable news wire services. Ergo, no independent voter will see or hear Mrs. Obama's statement, much less see or hear it denounced and ridiculed.

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.”

Lies, LIES and MORE LIES.

There is no lie the Democrats will not tell for Obama.

There is no lie they will not tell.

They know that millions of fools fell for their lies the first time, so they’re telling even more lies this time and bigger lies to hook the fools again.

Retail sales jumped 1.1% in September, boosted by higher gas prices and electronic sales, (and cars) according to the Census Bureau. Analysts expected a 0.7% rise.

So if your economic world consisted of selling gasoline and Ipads, you’re jumping up and down with delight, right?

Why is gasoline and food not included in the government calculation for interest rate changes in the economy, and then touted showing the recovery is in progress as an increase in retail sales?

“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.”

"I mean, whether I'm flying with my entourage to Europe for a shopping spree, or back to Chicago society to spew anti-American venom, or off to the islands for fun and ribs, I've never had it better. Servants, fleets of personal jets, people bowing to me - I've never had it better. And its all thanks to this President. And its all free, free, free!"

"So you faceless little people, you uneducated, unwashed masses, you small minded serfs who can't appreciate my greatness - suck it up and work hard and fork over your earnings so that I can enjoy this recovery without listening to your whining!"

We are seeing signs of it locally, there is a large development going up along with a huge shopping center here in SW Fla. Once you start seeing that, you begin to think things ARE getting better. How much is Obama remains to be seen. I just don’t see him as a commander of anything.

Of course moo-chelle thinks this. From her perspective, she thinks ALL Americans fly around in their personal 747’s, with scores of staff, and with unlimited credit-card money to buy anything they want. Is a matter of fact, Moo-chelle thinks the typical American family must own TWO private transportation jets, one ‘his’ and the other ‘hers’. She is just extrapolating from her everyday experience.

I really have no clue how I made it through 53 years without first checking in to see what MO had to say.

Raising my kids has been especially difficult, if only she was my guide through those years, telling me what to feed them and how I should raise them.

And now, to hear how she is once again advising and guiding me by telling me that the economy is recovering. Why without her voice, I would never know this ---- From what I can see, it is the direct opposite. How lucky we all are to have her as our mentor and counselor.

MAJOR /S off

It probably seems like that inside the beltway of DC. They just sit around like a mob crew and decide how they want to divi-up the taxpayers money.
