We're well into the recovery stooge at least according to all but a couple economic indicators which are related.<quoted text>
It is government spending and liberal policies that is the cause
of full blown depressions.
When the market is in need of a correction...its best to leave
it play its self out.
A large crash like in 2008 should have quickly recovered, but
it did not, because of what Bush and later on Obama did.
Too much spending and too much in the way of Fed. regs.
Obama prevented the recovery....he only made things much worse.
And it costed the average working American a great deal money.
Housing and unemployment?
Housing is way off due to the overbuilding and over financing made
possible by the lack of oversight during the Bush era that allowed folks such as Angelo Mozilo to run wild. And___unemployment in the construction and related arena's still hovers at over 16% nationally and much higher in the explosive growth areas, FL, NV etc.
Further, during the Bush era the construction industry was even further propelled by weather calamities such as a half dozen hurricanes in Florida which caused massive damage, and of course the big one Katrina.
Obviously a POTUS has no control over ugly weather but weather does impact the economy both ways.
