Obama ridiculed McCain on “Sound Fundamental Economy” now states Economy in Right Direction

President Obama tells a group of supporters in Poland, Ohio, takes aim at rival Mitt Romney and his prescription for the economy while maintaining that the overall employment numbers, from the past 28 months – and the creation of 5.4 million new jobs – are a “step in the right direction.”

But he said the economy overall is heading “in the right direction.” He blamed any sluggishness not on his policies, but on a “stalemate in Washington.”

Remember when Obama ridiculed John McCain for saying that the “Fundamentals of the Economy Are Sound”

“[B]usinesses have created 4.4 million new jobs over the past 28 months,” the president said, “including 500,000 new manufacturing jobs. That’s a step in the right direction. That’s a step in the right direction. But we can’t be satisfied, because our goal was never to just keep on working to get back where we were back in 2007, and I want to get back to a time when middle-class families and those working to get to the middle class have some basic security. That’s our goal.”
