Privately, Obama sees recovery 1-2 years off

While happy for the response, Oliver told us that he hasn’t seen any of the recovery the president and media have been heralding. “He’s out campaigning saying everything is coming up roses. He’s a lying SOB,” Oliver said of Obama, who has tried to temper his hopefulness with cautions that the recovery could hit speed bumps.

Oliver recently sold his letter through a dealer to pay for truck repairs but remains unemployed. Another firm, Alexander Autographs now has his letter and is offering it to the first buyer who bids over $10,000. The company’s president, Bill Panagopulos, told us that he will give half of the profit to any company that gives Oliver a full-time job.
