Someone just posted a poll on FaceBook evaluating the Obama presidency. The question and answer choices were as follows:
Is Obama destroying our country?
– Only a little
The graph above compares Bush’s “economic miracle” — the miracle of destroying jobs at a rate unprecedented in modern times– with Obama’s performance. Note what happened in the months since Obama took office. Job losses have declined to a point where they’re not much worse than they were before the recession got fully under way. If current trends continue it’ll only be a couple of months before we see positive gains in the number of jobs.
Then we’ll be back to the start of what may be another long nightmare of prosperity, although the nightmare of peace is something we won’t see for some time, given that the Bush administration started two wars and managed to conclude neither of them.
It’s quite frankly astonishing how Republicans can point to the massive dung-heap that they just excreted, and which the Obama administration is successfully clearing up, and claim that they are in no way responsible, and that it’s the Democrats who are befouling the nation. Do they actually believe their own rhetoric, I wonder? Sadly, I think that many of them are self-deluded enough that they actually do.
