Hello trust the media and from the White House the -- it told a very different story.
Here's my take on the settling for mediocrity.

-- 8% unemployment and zero growth is not okay -- death our debt will hit seventeen trillion this format.
Definitely not okay.
This is -- -- recovery from any recession in three generations.
And to sit back and accept it as if we can't do any bad.
