"are you joking"<quoted text>
The starting point for Obama is as follows:
1) losing 750,000 jobs a month & growing trend
2) An economy Shrinking at over 6%
3) Two quagmire wars
4) A housing collapse
5) A near financial meltdown.
These things created
1) fast rising unemployment
2) More people on Food Stamps
3) Fewer people paying federal income taxes
4) Lower average incomes
5) Trillion dollar deficits
Employment/incomes are lagging indicators & take longer to recover. Average incomes have improved since they bottomed out. Unemployment rate is has improved since Obama stopped the job losses & it peaked. Deficits have been shrinking since they peaked in 2009,2010.
After the original stimulus dwindled down, we needed more action as many economists agree. Several of Obama's stimulus actions since Jan of 2011 have been stymied by Republicans in the House & Senate.
"real dumb" is a troll. He has no answers as to why we are still in a recession, his words, not mine. He has no answers as to why; millions more American's on food stamps, millions fewer American's paying Federal Income tax, declining household incomes, housing values far below the level when his boy, president nobama took office, unemployment still high, officially a bit below 8% in reality over 15%. Oh, he does have a reason, It is Bush's fault. His answer for everything.
