    That's what he gets for surrounding himself with economic conservatives.

    He didn't do enough, so we are stuck in this malaise.  Only half the job was attempted--halting (more likely delaying) the collapse.  Worse than that (for him) is that he lost credibility with the public by trying to blow rosy smoke up our asses about the state of the economy when we all knew better.  He could have/should have been using the sad state of the economy as a cudgel against conservatives to do more, not less but that would run counter to his supply siding style.  Instead he embraced conservative ideas and branded the smartest folks (Krugman/Stiglitz/Volcker, not ever allowed in the room) and those who echoed them as "the professional left."
