    It's a good list, but Andrew Johnson is missing, and should be number one. After that Wilson, LBJ, Obama and FDR.

    Don't kid yourself, RW, Joe the Plumber would have had better numbers if he had been elected.

    With the blessing of the fed reserve like with Obama, he would have beat that at a faster rate without all those stifling
    business regulations and the Obamacare taxes.

    Prestigious Study PROVES That Republicans Hold Blame For Sluggish Economy (STATS)

    Donald Trump’s speech on his economic plan was rife with factual errors, but one particular false claim not only stands out, but has been repeated by Trump consistently in the past few weeks of his campaign.

    Donald Trump has made it a point to blame Obama, and by extension Hillary Clinton, for a slow economic recovery. Despite the fact that our country is no longer losing 800,000 jobs per month as it was when Obama first took the reins from a failed GOP president, the fact that the economy is not recovering more quickly is a favorite talking point of Donald Trump and his supporters.

    However, a new study by the Economic Policy Institute shows that it was GOP obstructionism, not any policy failure by the Obama administration, that is responsible for the slowing-down of economic recovery. According to the report, the stall can be directly attributed to:

    ‘The lackluster pace of recovery on Republican-led budget cuts in 2011 following the row over the US debt ceiling, the unwillingness of local officials to spend money when Republicans in Congress were advocating cuts in spending, and the refusal to expand Medicaid in 19 states.’

    Because GOP elected officials obstructed any spending that would aid in the recovery of the economy, they are now able to blame President Obama for the slow growth of economic recovery. Never mind the fact that the country is no longer in an economic freefall after President Obama and a Democratic-led Congress rescued the auto industry, reduced unemployment down to just 5 percent, shrunk the size of the deficit, and increased the GDP.

    Why is recovery taking so long—and who’s to blame?
    By Josh Bivens • August 11, 2016

    This fall’s presidential campaign will offer conflicting narratives about how the U.S. economy is faring and how well incumbent policymakers have managed the recovery from the Great Recession. But we already know the story. We are enduring one of the slowest economic recoveries in recent history, and the pace can be entirely explained by the fiscal austerity, particularly with regard to spending, imposed by Republican policymakers, members of Congress primarily but also legislators and governors at the state level. Key findings of this brief are:

    • Since the recovery’s trough in June 2009, employment took longer (51 months) to reach its pre-recession peak than in any other of the previous three recoveries. Much of this too-slow march back to the pre-recession employment peak can be attributed to the length and severity of the Great Recession itself—the economy had a much larger hole to dig out of. But the pace of job growth in the recovery phase following the recession was also slow relative to previous recoveries—slower than any on record except the recovery in the early 2000s. At the trough of the Great Recession the economy was more damaged than at the trough of any postwar business cycle; only the 1982 trough was comparable.
    • The ability of conventional monetary policy to spur recovery following the Great Recession was more limited than in any other postwar recovery.
    • Given the degree of damage inflicted by the Great Recession and the restricted ability of monetary policy to aid recovery, historically expansionary fiscal policy was required to return the U.S. economy to full health. But this government spending not only failed to rise fast enough to spur a rapid recovery, it outright contracted, and this policy choice fully explains why the economy is only partially recovered from the Great Recession a full seven years after its official end.
    Why is recovery taking so long—and who’s to blame?

    Obama care has helped the economy.

    Obamacare has been good for the economy

    Over the past few years the public sector has not contributed much, if anything, to GDP and the US economy's growth.

    There is one implemented policy, however, that appears to be helping.

    Aneta Markowska, an economist at Societe Generale, broke down just how consumers are spending their money that they have saved since the drop in oil prices.

    The largest increase in consumer spending since gas prices have dropped, according to Markowska, has been on healthcare.

    "In nominal terms, household spending on healthcare averaged 3.9% between 2010 and 2013," wrote Markowska in a note to clients Thursday.

    "It began to accelerate in the first half of 2014 and has averaged at 5.2% since then. Importantly, this pickup in healthcare spending was not driven by higher costs; real spending in this category accelerated from 1.9% in 2010-2013 to 3.9% thereafter."

    This would indicate that Americans have been not only been spending more because of increased costs, but also intentionally allocating more of their wallet to the sector.

    Obamacare has been good for the economy

    Trump hasn't done shit. And if he's walking a tight line it's due to his policies. Donald Trump has been a poor president. And what he does is repeat black unemployment numbers knowing there are enough dumb whites out there that will use this to counter our argument of his racism. No president has done a good job with black unemployment until it is equal to white unemployment. Talking about low black unemployment is when it is still twice that of whites is fake news.

    Drop the dumb ass argument of the media hates him. He's got more free media time than any other candidate and the media covers his antics far too much now. And he is the one who started the fight with the media. Stop falling for this authoritarian tactic. He's getting treated no different than any other president.

    I can and just did. Obamas policies did not kill the economy or Trump would have entered with America in a depression. Repeating republican lies don't erase facts.

    The Economic Policy Institute is a Far Left socialist outfit led by Clintonian extremist Robert Reich.

    Of course the policies of Obama are considered infallible by such an uber-partisan cabal.

    Obama's regulations were starting to take hold of the economy which was slowing and the stock market. This was with 0% fed fund rates.
    Right after the election, the stock market responded to the good news.
