You don’t know a good thing when you’ve got it, America. CNNMoney:
Three years after a financial crisis pushed the country deep into recession, an overwhelming number of Americans – 90% – say that economic conditions remain poor.
The number, reported Friday in a new CNN/ORC International Poll, is the highest of Barack Obama’s presidency and a significant increase from the 81% who said conditions were poor in June.
The persistent pessimism indicates that Americans are feeling a level of hardship in line with the official statistics. Unemployment stands at 9.1%, economic growth is barely above stall speed, and the housing market remains tied in knots.
And it’s not George Bush’s fault, even though Joe Biden says it isn’t.
You know, Obama’s really sick of your ingratitude, America. You really need to stop a minute and think about how to make him like you again.
