Did you realize that what really matters is whether President Obama is satisfied? At least that can be inferred from his speeches and remarks. Whenever some economic indicator ticks upwards, President Obama cheers the good news, but quickly lets us know that he is not yet satisfied.
I think we could program a computer to write an Obama speech. It might go something like this:
"And let me be clear, I reject the tired old debate that we must choose between two extremes. That is a false choice. I inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression. And I'm pleased with how far we've come -- but I'm not satisfied. And I won't be satisfied until everybody who is looking for a job can find one."
Here's another thought: we can satisfy our President by not looking for jobs. But until then, our dear leader is not satisfied.
