According to White House Spokesman Jay Carney, President Obama is “pivoting back towards the economy.” Again…For the 19th time…Literally, for the 19th time.

To mark such a “pivotal moment”, the President gave an economic speech today, at Knox College in Galesburg, Ill.. During said speech, The President says that the nation is “distracted by phony scandals”. Yes, that’s right; “Phony” scandals.

Obama also says that twice as many jobs have been created during the “2nd recovery” as were during the first recovery.

A question seems to leap to mind, here….We had a FIRST RECOVERY? When was this?
