He also sees unicorns in the Rose Garden, elves in the Oval Office, and faeries under his bed. I suppose we should really start to worry if he starts seeing cave trolls in the bowels of the White House basement.

The Hill reports:

The president touted his record on the economy in his remarks, while jabbing Republicans for standing in the way of those achievements.

Obama’s remarks were an effort of sorts to move away from the showdown that gripped Washington in recent weeks, beginning with the government shutdown and ending with a last-minute deal to raise the nation’s debt limit. Obama said he knows the public has heard a lot about Washington’s woes, but “there are some good things happening in the economy” below the surface.

“After decades in which the middle class was working harder and harder just to keep up, and a punishing recession that made it worse, we made the tough choices required not just to recover from crisis, but to rebuild on a new foundation for stronger, more durable economic growth,” he said. “Five years later, we have fought our way back.”

The president touted his work on energy and health care as key economic boons. He noted steady job growth the economy has seen in recent months, underscoring 200,000 new jobs created in October.

He also noted that the auto industry has essentially recovered from its near bankruptcy and bailout and is helping support growing U.S. manufacturing. All this happened while the deficit has been cut in half, he added.

Both parties have battlegrounds immediately ahead of them; if a budget conference committee cannot strike a spending deal in the coming weeks, the U.S. could yet again be faced with another federal government shutdown. And the nation’s borrowing cap will need another increase sometime this spring.

The president chided Republicans for repeatedly fighting back against his efforts, painting them as mere obstructionists getting in the way of a resurgent economy. He also made passing mention to the ongoing woes surrounding the rollout of his signature healthcare law, which has been the dominant GOP priority for weeks.

“Imagine how much farther along we could be if both parties were working together. Think about what we could do if a reckless few didn’t hold the economy hostage every few months, or waste time on dozens of votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act rather than try to help us fix it,” he said.

First of all, under his watch, the middle class has fallen further behind. And what exactly is this “new foundation” for economic growth? With GDP growth hovering near 2% — and less  — who is he trying to kid that there’s much of a recovery at all?

Yes, we have “fought our way back”…to the 1970s and a stagnant economy. No wonder all this great news about the economy lies “beneath the surface.”

The delusion isn't his. It is...and has been...ours.

Cloward-Piven not only modeled this...they taught how it would end.

The fairy tale is the one being promoted by those who remain in voluntary blindness.

Obama and his entire cabal were bathed in radical overthrow. The Senate via The Party has removed the last of the checks and balances. Capitalism has been permanently damaged. The Constitution has been ravaged.

And still...still...the useless idiots join the useful idiots...in promoting the notion that this is all about "good intentions", executed poorly at times...and "obstructed" by political "opponents".

Perfidy layered over with propaganda.

And, WE continue to provide the best cover of all...incompetence instead of evil intent

The President can get away with such prevarications as long as 40% of the voters continue to vote for his party irregardless of the costs.

If Obama saw a silver lining, he'd already have his staff figuring out how much they can take and how to do it.

And two in times of war
I smoke two joints before I smoke two joints
And then I smoke two more.

Actually one of the funniest things that you have ever written. Kudos.

I've been mocking my lefty friends about their love for the Austrian School of Unicorn Economics. They remain unamused. Which is kind of why I keep saying it.

He needs to come out of his ivory tower and live in the real world with the rest of us. I get sticker shock going to the grocery store or filling up my car with gas. Please. Tell me more about how wonderful the economy is.

What the heck is he talking about. I'm in the middle class, and it just gets worse and worse each year.

The numbers and realities for most people have gotten worse every year for twenty years and more, but the "safety net" is stronger than ever before and the roads are full of nice cars even if they are bought with newly printed and inflated dollars. It's very weird. I don't *remember* smoking two joints, but that might explain things.

Middle class families have lost an average of $5000 in income since Obummer has taken office with no sign of it turning around. Now add in the costs for for Obamacare, higher premiums and unaffordable deductibles. Who is this clown think he's kidding. Not only have many lost jobs and wages they'll now lose their health insurance that they once had. Not only are not getting any better they are getting worse. Unfortunately Obama has not learned from his Obamacare debacle, he still thinks he can fool most of the people all the time. Those days are long gone except for about 25% of the true believers, no hope for them.

Yes, Obozo is delusional. Not that long ago Obozo alleged in a conference call to his sycophants that 100 Million Americans had signed up for obozo care. What hilarity. This is also a president who has an obvious number disability -- I believe he's number blind. So what's 17 trillion mean to a moron? Nothing, of course. 17 trillion or 17 cents -- there is no difference.

Obama should go look for those cave trolls. Maybe he'll be eaten by a grue.
