In the wake of Friday’s disastrous jobs numbers, combined with oblivious White House spin, Twitter commentators this weekend are reminiscing about Team Obama’s vaunted “Recovery Summer” launched two years ago this month.

Flashback June 2010:
Vice President Joe Biden today will kick off the Obama administration’s “Recovery Summer,” a six-week-long push designed to highlight the jobs accompanying a surge in stimulus-funded projects to improve highways, parks, drinking water and other public works.
David Axelrod, a senior adviser to the president, said: “This summer will be the most active Recovery Act season yet, with thousands of highly-visible road, bridge, water and other infrastructure projects breaking ground across the country, giving the American people a first-hand look at the Recovery Act in their own backyards and making it crystal clear what the cost would have been of doing nothing.”
Remember folks, the 2nd anniversary of the Democrats' "Recovery Summer" is this month! Start planning your parties now! http://t.co/ilYBnSfj
