It's always amazing that Republicans believe that the Democrats should have fixed all of the problems in America during 2009-2010. They accomplished a lot but with only two years, and a national crisis on their hands, to expect them to fix every single problem is a bit absurd.

What we do know is that overall the Obama administration, even with Republican obstructionism between 2011-2017, left the nation better off than when Obama took office. It would have been better still if the Republicans had not adopted the "Oppose Anything Obama" position and the election of Tea Party Republicans in 2010, that were radical obstructionists unwilling to even work with the majority of Republicans in Congress, made matters even worse for America.
