Michelle Obama says ‘We’re in a huge recovery’

During a Friday radio interview with WPGC 95.5, a Washington, D.C.-based hip-hop radio station, First Lady Michelle Obamasaid in that the United States is in the “midst of a huge recovery” because of her husband’s efforts as president.

Co-host Pablo Sato prompted the answer when he asked Obama: “Mrs. Obama, you know what, in your words, tell us what you think the state of the union is in right now?”

The First Lady then replied: “I mean, we are seeing right now that we are in the midst of a huge recovery. Right? Because of what this president has done.”

The hosts agreed.

Obama then continued on to explain that her husband has helped maneuver the economy into a recovery:

“Pulled this economy from the brink of collapse when we were losing 800,000 jobs a month. Now were gaining… throughout most of his presidency, we’ve been adding jobs to this economy because of what he’s been doing. The stock market has doubled. Housing prices are rising. Foreclosure rates are lowering. But in the face of that, you still have people trying to convince us that things aren’t better. Now, Barack of all people, knows that we still have a long way to go to completely rebuild the economy, but we’re headed in the right direction.”

Michelle Obama continued:

“And when you see all of that truth, it’s hard to understand why are people blocking this? Why are people talking about not raising taxes on wealthy people? Why is it that people don’t want to fight to make sure that veterans have job opportunities?”

“They just like to talk, Mrs. Obama,” Sato’s co-host agreed.
