Hospice or recovery?

The Hill reports that Obama has shelved a smog rule that's seen as a huge defeat for environmentalists. I actually agree with Obama on this one -- he admits that additional rules would be a problem in a weak economy. However, you have to dig the hubris with their comment:
In a statement, President Obama said that the rule is being shelved because he is wary of imposing regulatory burdens during the economic recovery.
Oh, of course, the recovery! Silly me! A recovery where job and GDP growth are stagnant is still a "recovery"? I guess a hospice patient who hasn't died yet is doing better then?
