    Umemployment has dropped from 10.2% to 7.8%
    The stock market has doubled since the stimulus.
    5 million private sector jobs have been created since 2009.
    GDP has been growing since 2009.
    Americans net worth is up $10 trillion dollars since 2009.
    Auto sales are up. Retail sales are up. Home sales are up.
    Bin Laden is dead, and GM is alive.
    Obama has done a very good job.

    ---No one president can single handidly change the economy. Americans have to do that on their own. It's fear that helps cause the economy to slow down. I mean seriously people, how much change did you really expect to happen with that state the economy was in 4 years ago. You honestly expected it to be MUCH better than this in just a mere 4 years?

    OF course we do! After all the MSM called Obama a God!
    And please tell me were you around when the dot.com bust happened that cost $5 trillion in losses that allowed $166 billion a year tax writesoffs (by the way Obama writes off $100k this way a year!)?
    Also were you around when 9/11 occurred also costing $2 trillion in losses another $66 billion a year in tax writeoffs..
    Were you around when the WORST HURRICANE SEASONS (plural!!) costing $1 trillion in write offs?
    And all of those events cost:

    AND JOBS LOST???
    • 400,000 jobs due to Hurricanes Katrina/Rita again NOTHING Bush could do to prevent! After all he is definitely not the Messiah as Obama is considered!
    • 145,000 jobs in NYC alone due to 9/11.... so of course because of the Gorelick Memo the CIA was not allowed to share with the FBI the 9/11 terrorists in country!
    • 300,000 jobs lost due to dot.com busts....
    ===========================
    845,000 jobs LOST

    YET in spite of that THE FACTS are:
    PolitiFact | Romney says Obama promised to cut deficit in half

    NOW for the REALITY!!!
    Year Tax Revenue Expenditures Surplus or Deficit
    === ======== =========== ===========
    • 2000 $2.026 Trillion $1.789 Trillion $236.2 billion
    • 2001 1.991 1.862 126.6
    • 2002 1.853 2.010 (157.8 billion deficit)
    • 2003 1.782 2.159 (377.6 billion deficit)
    • 2004 1.880 2.252 (412.7 billion deficit)
    • 2005 2.153 2.472 (318.3 billion deficit)
    • 2006 2.406 2.655 (248.2 billion deficit)
    • 2007 2.568 2.728 (160.7 billion deficit)
    • 2008 2.524 2.982 (458.6 billion deficit)

    IN spite of those monumental events Bush had at the end of 2008 136 million working versus at beginning 131 million a gain of 5 million more working IN SPITE of
    845,000 jobs lost due to dot.com/9/11/hurricanes!!!

    • 2001...... 131,826 41 0.03% Dot.com bust, 9/11 occurred $5 trillion in real losses, 18,000 businesses
    • 2002...... 130,341 -1,485 -1.13% 9/11 residual losses

    GDP when Bush left office 2008 $14,359,490,000,000

    A 16% increase in GDP or $2,004.22 billion!

    Bin Laden is dead, so is our Libyan Ambassador and GM is alive but owes more to their UAW pension fund than they've made in profit in their entire history.

    Well if creating more debt and the unemployment not budging under what it was when he took office is a good job, then you are right, well done Obama. <<insert sarcasm >>
