    I usually don't either blame or credit presidents for the economic situation. Mainly what happens is beyond their control. But this time I think it may be a little different. Obama's taken some steps some other presidents would be afraid to go. He's taken some political risks, in other words, which appear to be paying off. Should he get more than normal credit for the recovery?

    First of all there has to be a recovery for the President to get credit for one...
    Wait a second.Unless the President is Obama...
    Then he gets a Nobel Prize.For what exactly did he get that for again?
    Now we are expected to give him credit constantly aren't we.Good Grief... :confused:

    There hasn't been a recovery.

    He can get credit for the disaster.

    He gets credit for it being so sluggish.

    It would have been more robust if he hadn't put his lead foot on it with the healthcare boondoggle.

    If he had actually paid attention to his stimulus and HAMP and made sure they were doing what they were designed to do instead of taking his eye off the ball I would have to be giving him credit now.

    The stimulus saved us from another Great Depression, so both Obama and the Democrats and Republicans who voted for it deserve kudos.

    What a bizarre post.

    Healthcare reform has nothing to do with the recovery.
