Top Obama Adviser on Economy: ‘People Don’t Feel As Good About it as They Should’ (Washington Free Beacon)

Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Friday that the American people’s views of the economy are mistaken.

“People don’t feel as good about it as they should,” Pfeiffer said speaking with reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.

Pfeiffer said that Democrats, through no fault of their own, found “it was hard to break through” to the American people on the economy before the elections.

There were many reasons for this communications disconnect, including the media’s focus on ISIS and Ebola.
