I beg to differ

It seems that President Obama believes that he and his economic team have made all the right choices when it comes to recovering from the recession.  I humbly beg to differ (something this President seems incapable of).  I cannot think of a single good economic decision that they made until the recent halting of new EPA restrictions and the decision to stop dragging their feet over the trade deals with Panama, Colombia, and South Korea.  More to the point, I think that nearly every one of their decisions has been the opposite of what should have been done to restart the economy.

The President should stop whining about how he inherited a deep a hole (which is true) and explain how, despite all of his "right choices," the economy keeps drifting down.  His excuse-making is about how long it will take to get back to where we were, but his policies are keeping us from even turning upward.
