Apparently the Congressional Black Caucus Didn't Get The Obama Recovery Memo
Looks like no one told Emanuel Cleaver that we're in the midst of The Obama Recovery (tm). From The Hill (emphasis added):
Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) expressed concern President Obama's budget would go too far to rein in government spending in the midst of an economic recovery, calling the forthcoming proposal a "nervous breakdown on paper."
"This budget is a nervous breakdown on paper," said Cleaver during an interview on CNN's "Starting Point" Monday morning. "We're still in a recession, we're still struggling. Unemployment is still too high," he said.
We're "in the midst of an economic recovery," but "[w]e're still in a recession"?
Let's hope they keep sending mixed signals about recovery/recession... that will help blunt the leftymedia spin that "everything's getting better."
