Is this what Obama meant by change?
Obama < Carter

For what it's worth, the Bush Jr. era overall did more damage, though the Obama era is destroying us at a faster rate. This is why both pointless invasions and corporate bailouts are bad ideas.

those numbers are both his and, to some degree, bush's but, it's on his watch so it will be deemed his fault.

much like how 9/11 happened on Bush's watch but, in reality, the blame should be handed out to his, and every president prior to him, up to and including Ronnie.

Obama promised change, the people got what he promised.

hopefully, this time around, we'll get the change we want and need.

Yes, because the president single handily controls the economy. Never mind we have been in a downward spiral for more than a decade.

As long as we can scream "Its Obamas fault!" everything will be okay. No actual blame on any other factors as long as we can slander the Presidents name.

Not sure I agree with the gas price statistic. It was almost (and north of, in some places) $4.00 in '08 and the barrel plunged to $50 right around the time he came to office, and has (obviously) climbed back up. I wonder how much of the other stats were due to policy in place before he took office? Not saying I support the train-wreck that has been his administration...

Thanks for sharing!

I hear you progressives saying that Clinton's economy was great. So, was it Clinton's economy, or something else? And if it worked so well for Clinton, why isn't Obama doing the same thing Clinton did?

The fact of the matter is the "Clinton economy" wasn't Clinton's. It was based off of "dot com" companies cooking their books, and we've been suffering every since that bubble burst.

I get a chuckle out of the gas price one.
I distinctly seem to remember gas prices nationally growing to just over $4/gal till just about a month before the elections.
So basically, this just shows he wasn't able to stop the numbers that were already rising.(or falling, whichever trend was in place)

Of course, it's only because of what he inherited from Bush...thankfully Reagan didn't need the same excuse following Carter.

It's amazing to me that everyone looks at this graph and just accepts it as fact without even WONDERING if the data is correct. It's a picture. I'm not saying the numbers are wrong. I don't know what the numbers are. But I'm not just going to believe this picture I see on the Internet CLEARLY posted as a Ron Paul Ad. In Breaking News, no less!

OP - What is the source of your picture graph? It's from a blog, I see. Can we at least have that link? I found the graph referenced MANY times over the past months on a Christian board, some Congressman's election website, and a Republican Policy Committee Flier, but can't find the DATA behind the picture or any reference to it.

It would also be nice if we had the same data on other presidents to compare... But a snapshot like this without ANY context is pretty meaningless to me.

(are you sure this is breaking news? From June )

Absolutley agree!


Obama needs to own his share of the blame and admit he failed or reversed course on some of his campaign promises, but it isn't all his doing.

This giant nation cannot be turned around on a dime. Obama is still inheriting ripples from polices from At least Reagan/Bush/Clinton/Bush, and in reality, he is likely still feeling ripples from all the way back to FDR!! Anything Obama might have done right won't be noticed for another 2-10 years.

In the meantime I still despise his Bailouts and Healthcare bills, "too big to fail" is something he can never live down, the "beer summit" showed his lack of leadership and grasp of reality, his pathetic apology tour cannot be corrected without replacing him, and the country is more divided than ever before, when it should be coming together.

So, while Obama is a giant failure as a president, the blame for the economy lies mostly in previous administrations.

I really don't see why we should be putting blame onto bush, though he is a huge part of why we have these problems. I tend to look at the situation a little differently.

Let's say that I'm a parent, a bad parent at that and I have a child who is known to be hyperactive, acts before he thinks, clumsy in his doings and quite often breaks things, likes to get himself into trouble with the neighbors.

But now I've got to go, going to be gone and I need someone to look after my kid. I may be the reason that my child gets this new parent into trouble, but who is responsible? Me? Or the person who volunteered to take over for me, knowing full well what they were getting into?

I would blame the one who took over, especially if they told the neighborhood "Don't worry! When I'm in charge things will be different"

Fact is Obama led people on, he made people think he would do things differently and hasn't. No one is perfect, he can't do all that he said he would, but he could do more.

OP, perhaps you should edit this back into your OP so others will see it there and not have to ask.

That's about the only thing they have left. Obama's presidency is a disaster.

On the other hand, since everything is Bush's fault and Obama is responsible for nothing, if/when the economy recovers, I guess we can blame Bush for that, too

Who says not to question those numbers my misery index is at its all time high

and yeah the usdebtclock is a solid reference point for those people who don't some interesting numbers to look it

household assets
corporate assests
actual unemployed
medicare and medicare and prescription drug that add up to over 100 trillion that can never be paid for.

both presidents as all the past ones have blame there but the problem is those who keep adding to it the national deficit the majority is owed to the people.

that said i still think the great big o hasn't done any favors to the long term stability or survival on this country and i do want him voted out.
