Amen! The economy is on the mend. Where were all these people when Bush was in office? Probably watching Fox News while Bush engaged us in 2 wars which were none of our business while the rich whooped it up with tax breaks, tax credits and tax benefits they frankly didn't need. God bless Halliburton!
Yes, the recovery started right after the stimulus was passed in 2009, but hardly any of the stimulus money had been spent at that point. This means the economy started recovering basically ON ITS OWN without the help of a stimulus. If anything, the stimulus was probably responsible for SLOWING DOWN of the recovery during Obama's first term. We've had the slowest recovery since WWII, I believe. The slow down would have been more pronounced if not for the Fed's quantitative easing, but that's resulted in money printing and inflation. All told, we've burned though at least a trillion dollars worth of stimlus money (all borrowed, by the way) and we're still stuck at 7-8% official unemployment with real unemployment in the double digit percent range. And you think Obama deserves a second term?
