    My assessment of the 2 Obama terms.........

    Bad
    and worse.

    It's going to take a long time to fix all the crap Obama has done. Wouldn't want to be the next president to try and fix all of it.

    You're right, look at how Obama has spent 8 years repairing all the economic damage done to this country by his immediate predecessor. Obama's successor will have to continue working to undo all the damage done by baby Bush. Hillary has a lot of work ahead of her.

    Oh my God, you actually believe that load of crap. after Obama has had almost eight years to fix Bush's problems, the country's in worse shape than when he started. It only took Regan 3 years to turn around Carter's 1.2% GDP to a 4% GDP, so what's been taking Obama so long. Our military during Obamas time has been reduced to a point equal to the WW2 strength according to the JCS that couldn't conduct a 2 front conflict at the same time. Blaming Bush for Obamas failures is a false flag, hell even Obama isn't doing it anymore, because he knows it's a line of BS after awhile.

    Some factual data for you-

    2009 Unemployment Rate: 10%
    2016 Unemployment Rate: 4.9%
    =Reduction of 5.1%
    Bureau of Labor & Stats

    2009 Median HH income: $50,221- US Census
    2016 Median HH income: $57,206- Sentier Research (Census data comes out in September)
    =Gain of $6,985

    2009 Average Family HC premium: $13,375- Kaiser Family Foundation
    2014 Average Family HC premium: $16,351
    +Gain of $3,000
    Reason for increase: Insurance companies are being forced to insure people who are more likely to utilize the insurance (i.e. they might have to shell money out on a a "bad risk" that they normally would have denied coverage to).

    2009 SNAP participation: 35+ million people)
    2015 SNAP participation: 45+ million people
    Obama can be blamed for the increase, but keep in mid it has been increasing since 1999. Notice that during two years of the Bush administration, it grew by as many people as it did during EIGHT years of Obama, and has been dropping for the past three years.
    1999 18,183
    2000 17,194
    2001 17,318
    2002 19,096
    2003 21,250
    2004 23,811
    2005 25,628
    2006 26,549
    2007 26,316
    2008 28,223
    2009 33,490
    2010 40,302
    2011 44,709
    2012 46,609
    2013 47,636
    2014 46,664
    2015 45,767

    Federal debt isn't something new, but if you want to bandy some numbers about, why don't you take a look at this chart?
    It outlines the debt change by president from the time they took office until the time they left.
    Look closely at the percentage increase under the Bush admin. versus Obama.
    Quite a difference, no?

    Home ownership continues to drop following the subprime mortgage-caused housing crisis that started in when?
    In 2008, during the Bush administration.

    While you are bashing the current president for not fixing the problems that occurred during the previous administration, you may want to factor the previous administration into your complaints.
    It's like crashing your race car into a wall, then blaming the pit crew for losing the race if they cannot fix it fast enough.

    Water over the dam, or a turd down the toilet..

    Why the unhealthy and irrelevant obsession with what has happened, other than obsessions really seem to be your thing. Not saying you are wrong, but in the words of your other unhealthy obsession, "what does it matter now?"

    It maters greatly in the context of Oopsspec's post claiming that Obama has destroyed the country (with a poor attempt to buoy the claim using incorrect "facts").
    He then states "after Obama has had almost eight years to fix Bush's problems, the country's in worse shape than when he started".

    So, the Bush administration screws the pooch, but Obama sucks for not fixing the mess quickly enough?

    If you think historical FACT is just "water under the bridge", then you should not even be involved in this conversation as anything discussed is just "water under the bridge". That would put you in the same company as people who get more excited about a 100% sales growth (going from one customer to two) as opposed to a 50% sales growth (going from 20,000 to 30,000 customers). You probably want your stereo volume knob to "go to eleven" becasue it's louder than ten.
    If you have a clue however, you would understand that history has a ****ton to do with judging a current president and what he has or has not achieved.
    Using accurate facts is even more important, and something that Oopsspec seems to refuse to do.

    Let's boil it down to this, 84% of the people that were recently polled say that the country is in worse shape now than where we were 8 years ago, so if what you say is true, then why do the American people feel the country is going the wrong way.

    This isn't the Family Feud.
    OPINIONS are not FACTS.

    100% of the polled members of the Flat Earth Society think the Earth is flat.
    That must mean it's flat, right?

    And you STILL haven't answered any of the questions asked of you.
    Unable, unwilling, or just don't care how inaccurate you are?
