Senator McConnell (R-Ky.) weighed in this morning on President Obama’s absolutely absurd contention that the “private sector is doing fine.” He didn’t mince words.
Tune in to Fox News now to see Leader McConnell discuss the economy and Pres. Obama's press conference.

Twitter users agree with Senator McConnell and one proposed an excellent idea.

Best idea ever.
Well said Mitch McConnell! "Obama is disconnected from reality" that's one way to say it!

Mitch McConnell: we are now living in the Obama Economy, and no ‘post-it note’ proposal can reverse the damage done by his policies.

Full text via McConnell.senate.gov:
Washington, D.C.– U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement after the President’s press conference where he claimed the ‘private sector is doing fine’ and called for even more Washington spending:
“Whether the President wants to acknowledge it or not, we are now living in the Obama Economy, and no ‘post-it note’ proposal can reverse the damage done by his policies over the past three and a half years. It’s baffling that in the face of all evidence to the contrary, this President still believes that spending money we don’t have to inflate the government is the answer to America’s economic problems. The economy would respond much more favorably to providing the tax certainty Americans deserve by extending all the tax rates and assuring employers they do not have to budget for the largest tax increase in American history next year. The Obama Economy is even slower now than when we extended the rates in 2010—raising taxes on job creators in this slow economy is simply not the elixir for his failed policies.”
More will be coming from Mitt Romney and the RNC.
Subject heading in emails from Romney, RNC, McConnell, and on and on: "The private sector is doing fine."
