I'm sure that the 24 million people who are unemployed or underemployed LOVE your "evidence", Seawyche!
The constant refrain from the Left about how much the economy has "improved" since Barry took office is laughable since he started at the height of a recession. A better gauge of his performance as President is the strength of the recovery since EVERY recession is followed by a recovery. The truth is that we are mired in the worst recovery from a recession since the Great Depression FOUR YEARS after Obama was elected and much of that is directly attributed to his policies.
That has nothing to do with "hating" the President. It's simply reality. We've spent trillions of dollars in stimulus and quantitative easing in order to kick start this economy and it hasn't worked. Why? Because the Obama Administration's policies are holding it back. His latest "plan" to fix the economy is a perfect example. In the midst of a slow economy he proposes raising taxes as the solution to the country's ills despite the fact that will further slow the economy and cost more jobs. I'm sorry, Seawyche but our current President and his minions either don't understand economics or they've chosen to ignore basic economic principles because it plays well with their "base" in an election year. Either way, what they propose is bad for the country.
