OK, so Paul Krugman, in his most recent snow job poorly disguised as an op-ed column in the NY Times, neglects to mention that both President Obama and Vice President Biden have not missed an opportunity to tout "The Summer of Recovery" for months now. Krugman, a one time cheerleader of the Obama administration before he realized that they aren't quite as radical for his Bolshevik tastes, is downright frustrated:
[W]e can safely predict what [Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Ben Bernanke] and other officials will say about where we are right now: that the economy is continuing to recover, albeit more slowly than they would like. Unfortunately, that’s not true: this isn’t a recovery, in any sense that matters.
[The Obama administration] can use Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored lenders, to engineer mortgage refinancing that puts money in the hands of American families
[The Obama administration] can finally get serious about confronting China over its currency manipulation: how many times do the Chinese have to promise to change their policies, then renege, before the administration decides that it’s time to act?
