Don’t believe a word that they say about the economy:
It’s always “peaches and cream” with this administration and the idea that the American economy is well on its way to recovery, is just another lie among money. Supposedly, the “Great Recessions” ended 4 years ago, stocks and bonds have done well because of “cheap” money manufactured by the Federal Reserve, but to the average American it is still a very dark picture. We lost 8.8 million jobs during the recession and the country has only recaptured 70% of those jobs back.
As of the latest statics 58% of the adult population has a job and the last time it was that low was 1983 and if you consider the increase in population it makes the picture even darker.
For the last 8 years the American economy has averaged 2.5% growth and that is like treading water in the middle of a hurricane. For all practical purpose, this is a no growth economy and without growth there is no way that the country can pay our debts without borrowing more money.

disagree with Obama’s refusal to acknowledge the Islamic roots of the
Some of the most prominent reformers have argued for years that the
ideological and theological roots of Islamist extremism must be addressed,
but administration officials carefully avoided exactly that subject during
Obama’s three-day summit.
