    And how much of that is due to govt. spending which creates debt? You think 2.5% GDP growth is strong? At this time after the 81-82 recession Reagan had over 7% GDP growth and had created millions more jobs than what he inherited. You simply buy what you are told and are incapable of doing any research.

    Good, so those evil rich people are doing so much better under Obama. Thanks for showing exactly who you are. You voted for someone whose resume showed he was unqualified and now support results that show that resume accurate.

    Until Obama gives us different results, what you see are those results and are what you get

    He ended the recession within 6 months of taking office and brought us up into positive GDP growth in less than a year. So, yes. He did as promised.

    And, everyone knows, the reason growth rates are not higher right now is due to GOP austerity measures. Here's a comment from someone who understands the economy far more than you possibly could.

    Yellen reminded lawmakers of their sheer terribleness during a Senate Banking Committee hearing on Thursday about her nomination to replace Bernanke as chair of the Federal Reserve when his term ends in January. Republican senators moaned and groaned, as usual, about the Fed's extreme easy-money policies. Yellen reminded everybody that Congress has forced the Fed to act by constantly imposing harsh austerity measures on an economy still recovering from a financial crisis and deep recession.

    "Fiscal policy has been working at cross purposes to monetary policy," Yellen said. "Some of the near-term reductions in spending that we have seen have certainly detracted from the momentum of the economy and from demand, making it harder for the Fed to get the economy moving, making our task more difficult.

    "We are worried about a fragile recovery, and a more supportive fiscal policy, or one that at least had less drag, that did no harm, would make life easier," she added later.

    Yellen was referring to the austerity that has come out of a rolling series of debt crises instigated by Republicans...

    So now you begrudge a rising stock market, as well as GDP growth achieved under Obama despite austerity from the GOP. You're clearly a partisan hack.

    I've never considered some one evil based upon how rich they, apparently you do, which is sad.

    You must not understand economics. Only those ignorant of the fundamentals would think a recovery can occur without government spending.

    I am sure that is what you want to believe but the results say differently especially since those shovel never got to those shovel ready jobs. What economic policies did Obama put into place that brought us out of Recession 5 months after taking office? Obamabots will never get it.

    Tell the millions and millions of people unemployed/under employed/discouraged that the recession is over.

    Govt spending is what generated that "booming" GDP that you claim exists and all that really did is put lipstick on a pig.

    You know better than that which is similar to what I know about you, you aren't this naïve, gullible, and poorly informed.
