Obama has set many records, most Supreme Court cases overturned, not being able to beat JIMMY CARTER'S (4 years) number of legislation passed in 8 LONG years.
But now he set another record, not to reach 3% GDP. And I know it isn't his fault, it's the media's or the sun spot cycle.


From 1790 to 2000, U.S. RGDP growth averaged 3.79%. America needs at least 3.0% economic growth-the nation cannot defend itself and pay its bills without it. However, America’s elites have largely given up on growth, and are now distracting themselves with academic musings about “secular stagnation.”

The graph says it all, Obama's 8 years has been like driving by the pig farm on a july afternoon. You know it stinks, but it's on your way to get to work. So you hold your nose, and get through it the best you can.
Let's see if DJ Trump can get the engine started back up.

Statistics are racist.

Oh how quickly you forget the Global Financial Crisis and its aftermath that Obama inherited.

I was also going to mention how when Obama first took office, the first most imminent thing on his plate was trying to save the economy from complete collapse.

Regardless of what you think of Obama, he didn't make that mess. And it couldn't have been easy finding a way to (at least temporarily) re-stabilize the system

I had the feeling this would be your thread as soon as I saw it and it was.
Why do I get the feeling you really love Obama??

On topic...I knew when he got voted in he couldn't get anything done like most Presidents.

So LBJ was the "Best. President. Ever?" In fact, the three "Best. Presidents. Ever" are LBJ, JFK and WJC and Carter was a better president than any Republican president except Reagan?

That's what you're arguing?

This stench of abject ignorance and simplistic first order thinking displayed by Jim Hoft and promoted in this thread is more odious than any dozen pig farms.

Jim Hoft is a hack and a frankly, not all that bright. He also has a lot of nerve referring to anyone as "fake news" as he posts fake news.

Yes

Edit, I'm in a smart a$$ mood.

No what I think this shows is the fact that Obama has fallen short on a number of yard sticks. He was not up to the task to be president.

That's a blatant lie. I was in construction in 2007 when things really started going down. We lost our asses. You're an idiot all the way through.

You people are human garbage. Blaming others for a system that was clearly taken advantage of. Truly demented. You simply don't want all Americans to do well. It's sad.

But no one will forget the continued failure.

Obama failed to fix it.

I was giving you some credit by saying you forgot. The alternative was to say you ignored it deliberately.

So how come you didn't account for that in the OP?

shouldn't it be easier if you come into office in the low point of a cycle?

Your title says first President not to hit 3 percent. I think you mean 1.5.

I counted five presidents since WWII to not hit 3 on your graph.

You're saying Obama caused the GFC?

What alternative version of history do you live in?
