Ladies and gentlemen . . . the President of the United States.
Politifact checked and approved.
You’re paying his salary and he’s delivered: a depression averted, a stock market tripled, a deficit cut by two-thirds*, health care inflation lowest in 50 years, home prices firm and rising, Detroit booming, energy independent, graduation rates up — all easy to take for granted**, but boy would we have salivated at such prospects six years ago, as the Dow was closing in on 6,500 (today, 18,000).
*So our National Debt is now again growing slower than the economy, which is what really matters.
** And so much more progress needed and within reach, if only the opposition would allow it.
