The Economy was problematic and not in good shape when Obama took office. That doesn't magically remove him of any culpability for his inability to do anything to fix it.The answers to those problems are simple, many "non-issues" tend to pop up around election time, when the real issue is that our economy was doomed long before Obama got into office.
If you take over a job where the person previously left it in bad shape specifically to fix it do you think your boss is just going to sit there and go "oh its okay, it was broke before you got there" and just let you be free of any consequenecs? if so, please let me know where you work, as I'd love to have such a cupcake job.
Reality doesn't work like that. Regardless of the fact it was bad before he came in, he was elected to work on fixing it and hasn't done it and arguably has made it worse.
Actually, much of the bills democrats tried to pass have been turned down by DEMOCRATS. They have a super majority. They don't NEED republicans, and yet still haven't been able to get things like universal health care passed.The majority of the bills that democrats have tried to pass, have been turned down 100% by the PARTY OF "NO" (republicans) who HAVE NOT even presented any alternative options.
What alternative ideas are Republicans supposed to massively push or think will get attention when they're minorities in both houses AND they don't have the presidency. Fun fact, the Republicans put out alternative ideas for most of the things going on, such as Health Care. Guess what, it was barely if at all covered by the media and honestly I can't really blame the media for that (I can blame them though for them going along with the "party of no" bs). Why make a big deal or put a lot of focus on alternative bills that have no shot of passing because they are no where near the needed votes?
The fact is, Republicans drove America to the brink of destruction and bankrupt our country by going to war with an innocent country. (9 years later and naught has been resolved)
In one year Obama raised the deficit more than Bush's two largest years, COMBINED. Obama's first year and projected second year out do Bush's eight years in total. Spare me about your crying of "Bankrupting" the country.
