If you consider Obama took office at the very moment our economy had crashed causing the worst recession in U.S. history, and threatening a world wide depression, it was a miracle to sustain an average 2 GDP. His economic GDP numbers gradually improved month to month from his second month in Office until he left Office. GDP is the productivity of American goods & services in relation to our consumption.
It took a massive $700 billion bailout to stabilize crashing financial markets, and implementing an expensive & expansive economic stimulation program to restore a slow but very successful recovery. The 2010 mid-term election results are proof the American public has little patience for a depressed economy, and less for austere policies that must be implemented for a safe recovery.
History will prove Obama’s domestic economic policies that were painful, were completely necessary for our economic recovery from the worst recession the U.S. has ever experienced.
