He only maintained the greatest economic windfall of our generation. But ok.
But was it because of him? Or was he just lucky enough to be the one whose butt was in the seat when it happened? If you take a serious look at his legislation history see that most of the bills he either signed or pursued empowered the people at the very top, have no special protection against the people of the top from lashing out against the mid and low-level people in response to these legislations, or have no measures preventing corporations from abusing loopholes in these legislations. I light have this, I think it's far more likely that the US economy grew under Obama because we the people wanted it to, not because of anything Obama did.
Mmm... Bush’s policies didn’t do it. Obama’s stimulus literally created an economic spike. And then Trump walks in and the economy starts crawling. Still upwards... but slower bc of dumbass trade wars.
The Obama stimulus created an economic spike? Really? The $800 billion dollar Obama stimulus left unemployment rates higher ever year that their economists predicted would happen if they did nothing at all. All the green energy jobs they promised their stimulus would create, every green energy company they funneled money into went bankrupt. The only thing that saved them, ironicly, the the oil and gas boom that created millions of jobs, in spite of their very vocal hatred of those energy sources. Under Obama the economy only grew an average of 2.0% slightly lower that what was average for the previous 20 years, with it slowing to 1.6% in 2016. Economists feared another recession was on the way. Then Trump was elected and Dow Jones stock rose by 257 points the morning after, and has been steadily rising since. Family income surged to record highs during the first three years of Trumps Administration thanks to deregulation and tax cuts. In three years under Trump the average citizen had made more income gains than in all 8 years under Obama. Under the Trump Administration, small business optimism surged to his highest amount ever recorded in decades. During the first three years under Trump, the economy grew at an average rate of 2.5%.

just seems like the nastiness and denying facts came with Obama and Palin.
Attacked? How? I remember protesting the lies that got us into Iraq.
