While Obama Celebrates Economic Recovery ...

... the 18 million Americans who are currently unemployed - including those who simply gave up looking for work - are not so festive.  A revealing (and somewhat edited) chart of the pitiful state of affairs we face here in America today, provided by James Pethokoukis (in "The big March jobs miss — and why the real unemployment rate sure ain’t 8.2%") (click on the image to enlarge it):

Obama and Biden - and the press - are going to tell you over the next several months just how great things are.
