No one said the economy was good. Don't be a troll. The point I made and what the available data supports is that the economy has been steadily improving. Keep in mind, oh ye of infinitessimally short memory, a bunch of well-connected, Wall Street banksters tanked virtually the entire GLOBAL economy back in 2007 (either as part of a sinister comspiracy or because they're simply greedy asshats that let things get out-of-control). No one --- not even Mittens of the Majik Underpants --- is going to throw some majical switch and make things all 2000 again (economic peak) Things have been on the decline since right after Bush v2.0 was sworn in. That's a fact, jack.

No, the economy is not steadily improving. And Bush didn't exactly inherit a booming economy. The unemployment rate has held to a steady 8% since Obama took office. And you contradicted yourself by stating "the economy has been steadily improving" and "things have been on the decline since right after Bush..." If being a troll means telling the truth then I shall troll away.
