Obama: America is 'Definitely Better Off' Since I Took Office

Democrats can hold the Senate in November, President Barack Obama said in his "60 Minutes" interview on Sunday, insisting the country is "definitely better off than we were when I came into office."

"Ronald Reagan used to ask the question, 'Are you better off than you were four years ago?'" Obama said Sunday, reports The Hill. "In this case, are you better off than you were in six?"

Obama said he plans to spend the weeks before the November midterm election campaigning for Democrats on his economic record, and that he would put it "against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis."

But Americans may not be ready to believe the president's message, as his national approval ratings remain low when it comes to how he's handled the economy.

A CNN poll released on Monday shows that 42 percent of respondents said they approve of how the president is handling the economy, and just 44 percent gave him a favorable job performance rating.

Obama admitted Sunday that Americans aren't feeling the recovery, and blamed that on incomes and wages that are not increasing. That problem can be addressed through Democratic policy, said Obama, and he plans to convince Americans that the economy has actually improved during his presidency.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
