After Obama's reelection he promptly proposed another $450 billion in another stimulus bill. Despite the bill failing and the stimulus long spent, the economy improved at a glacial pace. A smidgen of reading history shows the economy the Obama shills so eagerly promote like carnival barkers happened in spite of him, not because of his agenda.
Citing the unemployment rate on the day Obama took office as the initial data point for assessing his impact on the economy is either stupid or dishonest.
