If Obama had plunged the economy into a tailspin, we would have had severla months, if not years, or a growing economy after Bush, and then his policies would have caused us to go down. Instead, it was headed into a recession due to tax cuts when the country was on a war footing, and two wars, one of which was supposed to pay for itself. If you recall, the budget analyst at the GAO during the Bush administration who estimated the cost of the war was fired. Turned out his estimates were low.
Also consider, Rmoney said let the Americna auto indusrty fail. Thery got bailed out and are now making cars people want and seeing a profit. The houseing arket is up, foreclosures are down, and consumer confidence is up.
But of course, Obama can have only two terms. Hillary in 2016!!!
