Speaking at a town hall meeting in Raleigh, N.C., President Obama defended his stimulus plan and poked fun at Newsweek …
… for its latest cover, declaring: “The Recession is Over.”
“I don’t know whether you’ve seen the cover of the latest Newsweek magazine on the rack at the grocery store, but the cover says: ‘The Recession is Over,'” Obama said, prompting chuckles in the audience.
“I imagine you might have found that news a little startling,” he continued, to more laughter. “I know I did.”
