Actually I enjoy listening to Obama in his speeches. He seems like a nice guy, I imagine he would be a good neighbor. But his leadership skill seem to be very lacking and under developed. Of course I am looking from the outside in, and don't know the "challenges" he had.
But the other presidents got it done-so he stinks.

Disturbing. Passing off the crimes of bankers into a political argument. So ignorant. Then the same idiots put bankers right back into power. America really has some dumbass people in it.

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


Yup.

Should have been low hanging fruit.

And he only had to double the debt to do it!

The economy is not all his fault, but he did his fair share to stifle the thing.

And I could throw up a ton of "graph's" that show all sorts of growth. Lulz.....

Except that any economist would agree that GDP growth is the single most important indicator for economic growth, so any other graph you put up would be lying with statistics

When Obama took office the economy was already going in the crapper it was a global meltdown.

Trump is coming in while everything is already stable and climbing. Hopefully he can maintain it, but it goes the other way then we can determine who is the worst president ever.

Seems to me that every single thing Obama touched in any way was turned into pig farms. He couldn't throw more money at something and still not have it backfire and smell even worse than before. He even stunk up things that smelled like roses before he got involved.

And now on his way out the barn door, he is trying to add insult to the injury so he's over feeding the pigs he has raised.

If Obama was really super good, he would have thrown the bankers/wall streeters/fund raters asses in prison. You want to know what he did?

DOUBLED DOWN ON STUPID

Using your own source, Teddy Roosevelt was a worse President. I thought you guys loved Teddy and his whole "Speak softly and carry a big stick," schtick.

Presidents can't throw people in prison.

The only way he will find a graph that suits his argument is to go into micro soft office suit and make it up.

Ah, I love graphs that are misleading.... I'm no fan of Obama, but he is responsible for the largest rally in stock market history post crash...

www.tradingeconomics.com...



You'll notice plenty of years where the overall trend for GDP was over 4%.

And another source by year:

www.multpl.com...

Both 2013 and 2014 had GDP above 4%.

I agree...he seems like a guy I would have a beer with.
There were and still are many things that stink to me about him being elected and the American public's adoration and for others sheer contempt of him coming into office.

With that many people divided,can anyone expect a different result??

Speaking of that...George Bush and Al Gore couldn't even divide people as much as this did IMO.

The economy is fake. It is all supported on debt, $20,000,000,000,000 worth. Obama and the weaponized media refuses to address this theft to our children's children.

Obama was a horrible leader when the country needed a great leader.
