    Yeah, keep playing that idiot tune. What a lot of good it did Romney. When people lose their jobs and incomes (think Great Bush Recession), more and more of them quailify for things like food stamps and UI benefits automatically. That's why such programs are called "automatic stabilizers". Bush had already done all the heavy lifting on economy-wrecking, turning over to Obama what had essentially become a basket-case of an economy. No consmer demand, no business demand, no foreign demand. Do you know what that leaves to carry the day? Thank goodness Obama did.

    Meanwhile, from the stimulus bill...

    The purposes of this Act include the following:

    (1) To preserve and create jobs and promote economic recovery.
    (2) To assist those most impacted by the recession.
    (3) To provide investments needed to increase economic efficiency by spurring technological advances in science and health.
    (4) To invest in transportation, environmental protection, and other infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits.
    (5) To stabilize State and local government budgets, in order to minimize and avoid reductions in essential services and counterproductive state and local tax increases.

    And it failed at all five.

    He not only failed (if he was genuinely trying to right the situation) he made it much worse.

    He has put the country in a tailsping from which it might never recover.

    You might want to expand on your research to date on the matter.

    Not unexpected counter-factual rant and partisan emotionalism. The history-books version is that Bush made one huge colossal mess out of things and then Obama came along and got one thing after another set right again. As you know, there are 4+ years yet to tell in that latter part of the story. I'm sure you'll be looking forward to it.

    He is the most remarkable of all US presidents. From a junior senator to a twp-term holder of the highest office on land.

    Unemployment remained higher that any of Bush years and only saw a dip around the holidays- number 1 fail

    Did he really assist the most impacted? He gave away unemployment benefits and upped disability rolls, what did he do for the taxpayers, Nothing- number 2 -failed

    Number 3- failed no explanation needed

    Number 4- asphalt and concrete at all time lows- fail

    Number 5- State and local budgets in the red - Fail
