    That's bull****. At the time Obama was elected, it wasn't even announced yet by the NBER that we were in a recession, so how could Obama hava been elected to fix something which was not yet declared?

    What a surprise, another lie? The recession began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009 according to NBER

    But that's a lookback. The NBER declares a recession AFTER it happens - when the numbers come in. NBER didn't announce the results until December 2008:

    It's official: U.S. in a recession since December 2007 - Dec. 1, 2008

    By Chris Isidore, CNNMoney.com senior writer
    Last Updated: December 1, 2008: 5:40 PM ET

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The National Bureau of Economic Research said Monday that the U.S. has been in a recession since December 2007, making official what most Americans have already believed about the state of the economy .
    So he's right.

    (Not that everyone didn't know we had extreme financial distress long before the announcement made it official, of course).

    What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty? unbelievable, the recession began in December 2007, Obama took office in January 2009 with the country in recession, so who is right. The recession was already declared. no wonder this country is in a mess with people who cannot even accept reality

    The close to 4 million jobs created over the last two years proves you wrong.

    I guess shovel ready jobs weren't so shovel ready were they yet 840 billion was spent. The results today are worse than when he took office and yet people like you ignore the results. So tell me again why the money was spent to generate those kind of results? Did Bush sneak back into the WH in 2010 when the discouraged workers were the worst? So much for the Obama leadership
