You can say it should have been quicker and not last as long but you cant say we are not in recovery. But, if that's your argument, I refer you to Clintons speech.
So your argument is that the guy whose economic team told us he could prevent unemployment from going over 8% is now claiming success because after nearly 4 straight years of 8+% unemployment, he's ready to "start" a recovery. What a sad case you're forced to make.
BTW, don't look now, but the economy is on the brink of a double dip.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
