Obama’s State of the Union 2011:
“Two years after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the stock market has come roaring back. Corporate profits are up. The economy is
growing again.”

Herbert Hoover, May 1st 1930, US Chamber of Commerce Meeting:
“While the crash only took place six months ago, I am convinced we have now passed the worst and with continued unity of effort we shall rapidly recover.”

Obama’s State of the Union 2011:
“Thanks to the tax cuts we passed, Americans’ paychecks are a little bigger today. Every business can write off the full cost of the new investments they make this year. These steps, taken by Democrats and Republicans, will grow the economy and add to the more than one million private sector jobs created last year.”

Herbert Hoover, October 22, 1932, campaign speech in Detroit:
“It can be demonstrated that the tide has turned and that the gigantic forces of depression are today in retreat. Our measures and policies have demonstrated their effectiveness. They have preserved the American people from certain chaos. They have preserved a final fortress of stability in the world.”

Obama’s State of the Union 2011:
“But now that the worst of the recession is over…”

Herbert Hoover, June 1930, to a delegation requesting a public works project:
“Gentlemen, you have come sixty days too late. The depression is over.”

Obama’s State of the Union 2011:
“The steps we’ve taken over the last two years may have broken the back of this recession…”

Herbert Hoover, State of the Union, December 6, 1932:
“The unprecedented emergency measures enacted and policies adopted undoubtedly saved the country from economic disaster…”
