WSJ: ‘Total Disconnect’ Between Obama’s Economic Rhetoric and How Americans Feel

‘I think what the White House has to contend with is how you match the president’s rhetoric ... with what you’re seeing in this poll’

WSJ Reporter: ‘Total Disconnect’ Between Obama’s Economic Rhetoric and How Americans Actually Feel (Washington Free Beacon)

The Wall Street Journal’s Carol Lee slammed the upbeat economic rhetoric coming from the White House and used the latest WSJ/NBC poll to justify her argument suggesting the Obama administration is out of touch.

“I think, if you look at what the president is saying, what his message is publicly, there’s a total disconnect between clearly what the American public feels and what he is saying is going on in the economy. On Friday, he came out and he said things are getting better and clearly people don’t feel that way,” Lee said on Morning Joe.
