Yesterday, White House spokesmouth Jay Carney made yet another claim concerning how grrrrrrreat the economy is compared when President Barack Obama took office (bold is mine):
The economy is vastly improved from what it was when Barack Obama was sworn into office as president.
To no one's surprise, this howler was not considered news at the Associated Press. No article found in a search at the AP's main site on Carney's last name refers to the above quote.
To be "vastly improved," the economy's numbers have to be irrefutably better than they were 29 months ago.
