Who gets credit for the great economy?
Whichever one of them found the magic wand Obama said would be needed to bring back jobs.

This will forever be one of the best videos to kill Obama and his economy.

Jobs were made during his tenure and the Unemployment rate did drop.However, less people were actually working or looking
From 08 to 16 the median income raised 100 dollars.
Spending grew and was not reduced

Thank god Trump found that magic wand.

Let's all be fair here to the former president. For someone that is not a businessman, who has never run a business, and who has never had to negotiate for a good business deal, it would seem like magic to actually do that.

Just as advanced technology looks like magic to a society that is living in the stone age.

Bush bailed out the banks with tax-payer dollars. Obama stimulated the economy with tax-payer dollars. Trump did it the right way: deregulated and lowered taxes.

The bank bailout happened on Obama's watch.

One of the major complaints even from Obama's supporters is the first 2-3 years he did next to nothing. People were complaining he was still celebrating his victory. If not for covering up Benghazi he probably loses because Romney destroyed him in the first debate. The main thing that pushed him over the top was lying about the the ACA. If people knew they could not keep their doctor and would not be saving $2500 he absolutely would have lost. The second term was built on a stack of lies and he paid for it.

Obama did take us out of the depression by throwing money at things, but he did not fix one single thing correctly. Almost anyone who even tried a little could have done what Obama did. I consider his effect on the economy so so, at least he did not collapse it.

Trump has done some stuff to try to fix the economy right, but the Dems have been downplaying the effectiveness and are trying to take credit for everything. I suppose that is normal politics, but their deceit is easy to identify if you have an open mind. Trump so far has proven to be way more effective at fixing things right, but it is not his policies that are actually doing it, it is the Republican initiative that is resulting in this

Obama can only take credit for not letting it collapse, but he cannot take credit for where the Republican agenda has made it more secure. If Obama is saying this is all his doing, he is lying or he is delusional.

I just find it funny, because it wasn't that long ago during the a democratic debate that all the candidates were talking about how awful the economy was. So which is it? Is it awful or something worth taking credit for?

I mean I get it, they realize that they cannot convince American people that the economy is bad, so they figure why not take credit for it? Hell, the msm will back em up either way.

The Obama economy was pretty lackluster. He created a lot of uncertainty with new regulations. CFPB. Dodd Frank. This caused business to sit on sidelines.

Any recovery under Obama was IN SPITE of Obama's policies, not because of them. If anything, it showed how resilient and robust capitalism can be...

GDP growth under Trump has been more or less identical to Obama's second term.

a reply to: EdumakatedObama jumpstarted the medical industry by passing Obamacare and making it possible for doctors to again torture the crap out of people that had used up all the money up to their insurance maximum limit. By making it unlimited, many people in the medical industry profited immensely.

You do not start doing a heart replacement on someone in their eighties or do proceducres costing hundreds of thousands of bucks to treat someone who will only gain a couple months of life maximum. Obama fed the medical and insurance industries extra rabbit food which actually decreased the effectiveness of our medical industry but increased unneeded tests and procedures, so it boosted the economy at the expense of our raising out of pocket medical costs.

All you need to do is look at the last 2 years of Obama and you see complete stagnation with almost zero wage growth. That's what Trump inherited.

2015 48,098.63
2016 48,642.15
2017 50,321.89

Obama's recovery is the worst recession recovery in US history. That's a fact.

Trump gets the credit for the bubble he's created just as he'll own the criticism when that bubble bursts.

Obama’s GDP growth was much more volatile, as well, raising uncertainty.

Your right. Obama supported it and the other measured happened on his watch but out the gate Bush.
