Oh, dear. This is beyond delusional and out of touch. Reminiscent of his absurd “doing just fine” and “headwinds!” comments, President Obama today said that the economy is totally “poised to take off,” during an interview with Bloomberg White House correspondent Julianna Goldman.

Also, metaphors are hard.

What actually is poised to take off? Hilarious mockery. It was swift and sure, natch.

And, an out?

Heh. Keep it coming, Twitter. Mockery is the best medicine! So, there’s that.
