How many times have you heard Democrats, and their media echoes, tell you about the great Obama economic recovery?

On the theory that it seems as infinite to you as it does to me, I thought you might be interested in a dose of reality.

So here it is, via the following excerpt from Eric Eric Morath’s article article in the Wall Street Journal:

Even seven years after the recession ended, the current stretch of economic gains has yielded less growth than much shorter business cycles.

In terms of average annual growth, the pace of this expansion has been by far the weakest of any since 1949. (And for which we have quarterly data.) The economy has grown at a 2.1% annual rate since the U.S. recovery began in mid-2009, according to gross-domestic-product data the Commerce Department released Friday.

Does that look like a great economic recovery to you?

Me neither.

But you can count on the same fraudulent story to be repeated over and over again throughout this presidential campaign.

Because admitting the truth would both embarrass Barack Obama and damage Hillary Clinton’s chances for the White House. And neither Democrats, or most mainstream media, can abide that, can they?
