White House says economy is ‘poised’ for growth; Ace is poised for mockery


And with that, the hilarity began.

“Poised” #RecoveryWinter RT @markknoller: Despite contraction in GDP, Carney says “we continue to be poised for econ growth & job creation.”

Twitter users quickly gasped for breath and the mocking began in earnest.
