A survey of today’s headlines shows that the economy has once again started off a tough day for President Obama.
USA Today — Economy weak in second quarter, GDP grows at 1.5% rate
Wall Street Journal — US Growth Slows in 2nd Quarter
The New York Times — US Economy Slowed to a Tepid 1.5% Rate of Growth
CNN Money — GDP Report: U.S. economy slowed in second quarter
The president’s response? Did he take charge, say the buck stops here, and vow to pivot to jobs (again), focus like a laser beam and do something already?
Nah. According to CBS News’ Mark Knoller, Obama ducked.
Such courage, from our young president. It’s downright inspiring.
