Obama: 'The Private Sector Is Doing Fine' What Do You Think?

Did Obama make a major mistake responding to Republican criticism about the economy under his leadership?

Obama: 'The Private Sector Is Doing Fine' What Do You Think?

Responding to Republican criticism of his leadership, President Obama told reporters:

"The truth of the matter is," Obama responded, "we've created 4.3 million jobs over the last 27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone. The private sector is doing fine."

The quote is from an article by the Los Angeles Times today, where Obama made the statement as he was urging European leaders to action to solve their debt crisis.


So what do you think? Did the president misspeak or is he out of touch with million of Americans who are strugling with the economy? More to the point, do you support his economic policies or that of the Republican leadership?
