  •  Not true. GDP growth was (0+ / 0-)

    very strong during most of his years in office.  Yes, it was recovering from such a horrible depth that the economy was still "bad" during much of that period -- but, as I noted above, GDP growth is by far the best correlate with presidential election results.

    Families is where a nation finds hope, where wings take dream.

    •  Wrong (0+ / 0-)

      The GDP is not the best indicator. The best indicator is the strength of the middle class. The more people with good paying jobs are the dynamic that correlates with pres. election results and this year the dems will win by a large margin. Why? Because the repukes are batshit crazy.
