    Yes, Bush tanked the WORLD economy, but Obama's running against his own numbers too.

      What's your point?

      Repubs started up the car, hit the throttle and sent it over the cliff, and now they're complaining that the black guy hasn't fixed it fast enough.

        those aren't numbers to brag about. Analyst consensus estimates were for much higher.

        On the other hand, people are inclined to give Obama the benefit of the doubt. But you don't get the benefit if you go around bragging that 96K is somehow a positive.
