What is the source of this? I think it's moronic to claim it was all because of Obama, but there is no doubt that some industries have not yet recovered - the legal industry, for instance. This is pretty much the worst time to become a lawyer or enter the industry ... ever.
Things are still not as they were.

1) The Republicans screw up the economy.
2) Fed up with Republicans, Americans elect Democrats to fix the economy.
3) Republicans blame Democrats for not cleaning up the Republican mess quickly enough.
4) Democrats eventually fix the economy. Republicans ignore the recovery, and run on abortion, guns and gay marriage.
5) Americans forget how bad the economy was and who caused it. They elect Republicans again.
Repeat at step 1 ...
The Republicans had nothing to do with the housing bubble, which was created by Democrats (specifically Clinton and Obama before he became president). They also had nothing to do with 9/11, which caused the economy to tank. Democrats have been in charge since 2006, so you can;t keep blaming the GOP for all the problems created by Democrats.
Your problem is watching too much MSM, which seems dedicated to keeping Democrats elected and Republicans out of office. It's also pretty hilarious how ATS members so willingly accept propaganda when it's pro-Democrats propaganda. This chart comes from a site that's pretty clearly biased in favor of Obama's re-election.edit on 6-5-2012 by PvtHudson because: (no reason given)
Another idea that Ryan’s budget borrows from Camp’s proposal is the introduction of a “territorial” tax system, which is a euphemism for exempting the offshore profits of U.S. corporations from the corporate income tax.
A territorial system would increase the existing incentives for U.S. corporations to move their operations offshore or use accounting gimmicks to make their U.S. profits appear to be “foreign” profits generated in offshore tax havens.
