Things About Obama's Economy Earnest Won't Mention

- September 15, 2016

Today, White House Spokesman Josh Earnest Tried To Spike The Football On Obama's Economy

At Today's Press Conference, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Gave A Slide Show Presentation To Reporters Touting The Obama Economy. WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY JOSH EARNEST: "Yet, driven by the aggressive policies that President Obama put in place, our economy began growing just six months later, and has grown steadily since. We've grown faster than every other advanced major economy. The United States exceeded pre-crisis GDP levels per person in 2013, well ahead of countries who'd experienced similar financial crises in the past, and well ahead of other countries who faced the same global financial crisis that we did." (Josh Earnest, Remarks At A White House Press Press Conference, Washington, D.C., 9/15/16)
