The White House told Americans in an email to slide to the left to find out how the economy has improved. The email was sent Monday evening touting alleged economic improvements during the Obama presidency. The subject line of the email: Slide to the left. The winking political nature of the email is noticeable, though the administration may not have wanted its jokey political reference to sound like it came from an Orwellian P.A. system telling people to slide down in line in some clinical government cafeteria.
