(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.
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, weve been adding jobs to this economy because of what hes 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 arent better.
Free: Uh huh.
Obama: And that just doesnt make sense. Now, Barack of all people knows that we still have a long way to go to completely rebuild the economy. But were headed in the right direction. And when you see all of that truth, its 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.

BIG TIME GAFFE!
No “Butts” about it...!
"There are no American infidels in Baghdad. Never!"
al-Sahaf, Iraqi Minister of Information
The only recovery the Michelle is concerned about is her DH’s one in on election day.
The only thing that’s “huge” is her butt.
Define recovery. I think we’re maybe talking about two different things.
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.
Her ass is that big because her fat head’s up it.
Mrs. Obama: in the midst of a huge recovery. Right?
Mrs. Obama: What’s your name again?
Mrs. Obama: And your sister’s name?
What illness are she and her husband recovering from?
Did she get up after falling down? (ba dum.. psshhhhh)
Free: “How about a kiss?”
Free: “I like a little kiss when my peter’s gettin’ pulled.”
Free: “Get back!”
Obama: “My husband’s gay, you know.”
WOW! The Big Lie technique taken to an ASTRONOMICALLY new high!
Meanwhile, our local electrician is sleeping in a box down by the railroad track...
I must have midst the recovery
Middle of a huge scam is more like it.
Then she must be in a twelve step program previously undisclosed, because that’s the only big recovery that family could be connected to.
everyone believes the Lunch room Nazi.
were doomed /s
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.
We know how that worked out.
If Michelle gains 10 more pounds by January, Obama is going to give her monster butt its very own Zip code.
Couldn’t she just have kept it pithy and said ... “Let them eat cake”?
I think she means the 0bama’s are in a huge recovery...?
When she says “we” - she’s talking about her family and friends.
But I can see where you guys would be confused. :)
Go pay your taxes - the ‘recovery’ needs to continue. :)
yeah? ok, Evita, whatever (and hurry up with that packin’)
” 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.
Funny, it doesn’t feel like a recovery...
these inane statements are not for you and I.
Mooches message is to the rest of the moochers to not worry...the checks and free stuff will continue to flow from BarAcks magic money tree stash.
She could care less about what real workers think.
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.
The recovery will start on Nov 7th.
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, 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.
Hey Blackie-O, the recovery starts November 7th, when you and the Kenyan are voted out of office. Enjoy the gift of a permanent vacation from the American people. And don’t forget to send a postcard once you’ve learned to write.
The First Wookie is math challenged.
She thinks that if the prospect of Odumbo running for president made the stock market lose half its value and
...it has since (almost) doubled in value, and it only took 4 years and 5trillion$, so Odumbo pulled off a miracle!
I can remember when WPGC was a classic rock station. Times (and demographics) change.
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.
She’s referring to their $35 million hideaway in Hawaii...
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.
Recovery = No Sale
