    Imagine if Bush had had Obama's record at the end of his first term:

    * A net gain of less than 300,000 jobs in 4 years for the worst job-creation record since the Great Depression, and a weak average GDP growth of barely 1.7%. (Actually, average GDP growth for Bush's 8 years was 2.5%, and that was in spite of 9/11, the 2002 recession, Katrina, and the 2008 financial crisis).

    * An average unemployment rate of well over 8%. (Actually, average unemployment for Bush's 8 years was 5.2%, and that was in spite of 9/11, the 2002 recession, Katrina, and the 2008 financial crisis.)

    * A drop of over $4,000 in median family income. (Actually, under Bush, after-tax per-capita income increased 8% from 2001 to 2007--again, in spite of a recession, 9/11, and Katrina. Including 2008, after-tax per capita income increased 5.5% for Bush's 8 years, still a big improvement over Obama's record.)

    * $5.5 trillion in new debt in just 46 months. (Actually, total new debt for Bush's 8 years was $5.1 trillion, so Obama has doubled Bush's rate of debt accumulation.)

    * A chronically high poverty rate of 15% (give or take .05%). (Under Bush, the poverty rate averaged 12.9%--and, to repeat yet again, that was in spite of 9/11, two recessions, and Katrina.)

    The kenya kid has been awful but the racist media keeps covering for him. They refuse to say anything bad about a black president.

    The big networks are simply scared shitless to permit their news organizations to tell the truth about this useless POS POTUS for fear of pop culture backlash from the entertainment industry.

    OP- ....instead of destroying the world economy??

    Stop blaming Obama for 8 months of Booosh's job losses, dupes. Our economy is doing better than anyone else's, despite 3 1/2 years of mindless Pub obstruction...
