    Obama was a very lucky man for the Housing Bubble to burst when it did. First, it completely derailed McCain when his caimpaign was starting to gain momentum. Obama probably would of won anyway, but the bubble bursting was the last nail in the coffin for McCain.
    Second, it allows Obama to claim credit for the recovery. It's just MHO that we would of had a recovery regardless of whether Obama or McCain won the election.

    You can manipulate stats all you want. That doesn't change the fact that people have been suffering from Obama's policies.

    The trade deals were bipartisan. They are a major reason we now have President Trump.

    The glass is not full nor is it empty. Both sides use stats to show themselves in the best light and to demonize the other side.
