    Will the Economy Recover Under 4 More Years of Obama?

    Obama has had 4 years to fix the economy and so far it seems no better than when he came into office. Do you think after his next term that we will see full economic recovery and growth?

    Fair enough, although my poll is supposed to be more of a prediction of what people think.

    I'm not at all sure, but I can confidently predict that if it doesn't he'll get all the credit, and if it does, he'll get none.

    probably. but it would recover a lot quicker if the house would stop blocking everything. this recovery has been slow and painful because of gridlocking.

    also: the economy is on much better footing than it was when obama took office:

    sorry to use this picture again but since the figures keep being ignored they need to be presented again.

    It is still the Bush economy if it does not improve, otherwise it is the Obama economy, saved by transfering lots of borrowed money to unions, green energy wishes and blue state/city gov'ts. Yes he did!

    Honestly it's hard to tell. Most people didn't anticipate the 2008 crisis.

    But realistically, how do you fix something in 4 years (or even 8 years) that took decades to create?

    you give the rich tax breaks, they'll fix the economy. actually they should pay negative taxes. we should pay them to live here.

    Re: Will the Economy Recover Under 4 More Years of Obama?

    People think that just because Obama didn't fix the economy in his first term, that he's not capable of doing so. But these people are forgetting a few things: Bush severely crippled our economy, and it's going to take alot of time and work to fix it, time and work that Obama might have actually been able to better start in his first term, if Republicans didn't do everything in their power to stonewall him from getting anything accomplished. But, things have actually improved, if only by a tiny amount. Provided he doesn't get the same from Republicans in his second term, I think he can get things fixed, or at least make things better. Like it's been pointed out, he's not the only one involved. He has to work with Congress on how to fix the mess we're in, and let's hope Republicans learn to at least compromise, instead of the playing the BS partisan game they did his first term.
