The private sector is doing fine, President Obama said.
I don't care about your numbers, the American people said.
How does it feel?
It doesn't feel fine.
Remember 20 years ago?
George H.W. Bush had the numbers showing a rebound had started.
The people didn't feel it.
And we got Bill Clinton instead of four more years of the elder Bush.
Obama got elected on a wave of emotion from hopeful voters. Emotion will be his undoing this time.
