It is the longest RE COV ER Y in modern times because we have never gotten passed the "re cov er y" stage.   It is the slowest recovery since the 1930's .  THAT's why it is the longest.  And,  Obama has no more common sense but to brag about it.  Good grief.  

Eight years and he still cannot manage a lemonade stand.
