Obama Admits We’re Not Better Off Than We Were Four Years Ago

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News, in an interview with President Obama, said there are “so many people who simply don’t think they’re better off than they were four years ago. How do you convince them that they are?” President Obama replied: “Well, I don’t think they’re better off than they were four years ago.”

Now compare this statement to what Obama said at the dawn of his presidency, in an interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer: “I will be held accountable. I’ve got four years… If I don’t have this done in three years, then there’s going to be a one-term proposition.”

Obama is correct in what he said. We aren’t better off than we were four years ago. He will be held accountable. And if he doesn’t have this done in three years, it is going to be a one-term proposition.
