Obama’s Recovery That Wasn’t

Reason Magazine Editor Matt Welch joins Kennedy on a New York City rooftop to provide a sneak peek of the magazine’s October issue and its cover story — “The Recovery That Wasn’t.” Practically on a monthly basis, a different member of President Obama’s administration trots out a wildly optimistic prediction about the upwards direction of the economy. Reason juxtaposes these phony proclamations with the actual economic data to make a comical, and sad, commentary on the state of the job market during the Obama years.

In a show of independence, Reason also takes a swing at Republicans for refusing to shave defense spending as a means to shrink the federal deficit. Pollster Scott Rasmussen has penned a piece on that topic, and the public’s growing acceptance of defense cuts with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan winding down.
