Obama WORST of the last 13 Presidents for economic growth

80

This should come as no surprise to anyone who has not been drinking the enemedia Kool-Aid. Obama’s hard-left policies were ruinous for the American economy. It will take a long time to undo the damage he did.

“Obama was terrible for economic growth,” by Jonathon M. Trugman, New York Post, April 1, 2017 (thanks to Joy):

On Thursday we closed the book on the Obama economic “miracle” — and it’s a miracle we are not in a recession.

Last week the Commerce Department released its third revision for fourth-quarter 2016 gross domestic product. The number came in at a paltry 2.1 percent, meaning that growth during President Obama’s final year in office — the end of an “Error of Hope” — landed with a big thud at just 1.6 percent.

That low-water mark puts the Obama presidency in last place among all the post-World War II presidents when it comes to economic growth….

Thirteenth of 13 presidents is no mild distinction. Obama had eight full years to enact a growth policy, while many of his predecessors never had two complete terms. George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter had just four years each, Gerald Ford had less than three years and Richard Nixon had five….

Here are the average growth rates for each president:

Johnson (1964-68), 5.3 percent
Kennedy (1961-63), 4.3 percent
Clinton (1993-2000), 3.9 percent
Reagan (1981-88), 3.5 percent
Carter (1977-80), 3.3 percent
Eisenhower (1953-60), 3 percent
Nixon (1969-74), 2.8 percent
Ford (1975-76), 2.6 percent
G.H.W. Bush (1989-92), 2.3 percent
G.W. Bush (2001-08), 2.1 percent
Truman (1946-52), 1.7 percent
Obama (2009-16), 1.6 percent

    Obama you are the most disgusting man America has ever had to endure.

    I do not wish you well,and America is bigger than your hate for it.

    Your attempts will ultimately fail and you have already secured your place in history as the worst most perverse American to ever serve the American people.

    You were the biggest threat to the American way of life…You hate Americans, the Constitution, and free market capitalism. You destroyed our economy with measures like the ACA and immigration amnesty. The “Affordable” Care Act has been nothing short of a disaster. My health insurance bill is up to $450/month. (Compare this to my $25/month auto insurance from Insurance Panda or my $10/month renters insurance… both private enterprise!) Keep your hands off us!

    You have tested my faith,and until now I tried to forgive enemies,but I will never accept you as anything but evil,you disgusting human being.

    Seeing you fail ,and finally seeing your removal from office will be the best medicine and the largest blessing America could ever receive.

    • Suresh

      Agree ! What do you expect when you vote for a senator who never held a job of any real managerial position.
      When you vote someone who was no experience as Governor of state , Heck he never even ran a Pizza shop profitably…. and dumb voters elected him as President . Twice !
      And it gets worse . Inspite of knowing he is a Muslim ! Its foolish to trust a muslim.

        Not certain if 2008 election was honest, 2012 was not honestly won, too much illegal voting went on then. He learned politics the Chicago way, would not bet on his elections there being honest. Every one turns checking his background brings up more stinky stuff. Just so thankful the illegal squatter in the WH is out of the country. If it looks like pending arrests, will he return in 3 weeks? It is questionable if French Polynesia cooperates with extradition, Qatar does not, where one of his mega million mansions is located. How does one purchase several mansions, costing millions each, when their income history does not meet requirements for qualification?

      • Michael Fremer

        “Inspite” is not a word. Obama managed two excellent campaigns and did an excellent job by any metric other than GDP growth, which has been an issue for decades though of course your ability to understand any of this is obviously not great. He is not a Muslim but you are a moron.

        • Mahou Shoujo

          o’bimbo is a muslim, you are an idiot and quite possibly a democrat. Your concept of the American national debit being in the trillions of dollars is lost on your minuscule mind which cannot grasp the concept.

          • Michael Fremer

            National debit? Are you an imbecile or a moron?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            All of the above, in addition I know the American national debit is beyond the comprehension of those who use “international finance and investment for dummies” as their only reference.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Yes.

      When you are a FILTHY ISLAM0NAZI is what BHO is ,and a treasonous one at that. He should have been tried and convicted -but the GOP never fails to disappoint us- they need to be prodded along with sharp posts-

            I want to a very good law school. And you?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Of course you did, graduated with honorers, magna cum laude and were the homecoming queen who scored the winning touchdown in the basket ball championship. No doubt you have a pulitzer prize and are in contention for the supreme court as well. Ooooh, it is to be impressed. Or did you go to some storefront community college to become a paralegal?

    Fareed Zakaria: ‘State-Driven’ Health Care ‘More Efficient’ Than ‘Free Market’

    BY: ROBERT KRAYCHIK APRIL 2, 2017

    This is what happens to a nation when the political right supports a traitor (George W. Bush) who divides the land of Israel; who curses Israel. You get Barack Hussein Obama and Fareed Zakaria leading the debate about private property and free market economies. Take a look inside President Trump’s favorite Book. You will see it there.

    Obama’s election literally ruined my financial life. I wish him the misery of Hell.

    • nimitta

      The Dow Jones Industrial Average went from 7,949 at President Obama’s inauguration to 19,732 this past January 20th. If you lost money during his administration you have no one to blame but yourself. By the way, this article does Cirque Soleil-worthy contortions to distort the actual facts of Obama’s presidency, during which he inherited a grim financial crisis, second only to the Great Depression in our recent history, and helped turned the economy around while almost every other Western country struggled as well.

      Some other achievements during his presidency, which historians will doubtless regard positively:

      Homicides dropped 13 percent.
      The economy added more than 9 million jobs, and the jobless rate dropped to below the historical median.
      The number of long-term unemployed Americans dropped by 614,000.
      Corporate profits were up 166 percent; real weekly wages were up 3.4 percent.
      15 million fewer people lack health insurance.
      Wind and solar power have nearly tripled, and now account for more than 5 percent of U.S. electricity

      You and most of the others on this demented fake news site are living in a dream world – a nightmare of ignorance and hate. By the way, how do you think your candidate’s doing now? Better answer quickly – he may not be in office much longer!

      • Mahou Shoujo

        Your alternate facts do not compensate for the fact that the o’bimbo years were disasters to America no mater what criteria used. Your statistics are as phoney as the three humped camel you rode in on.

        • Michael Fremer

          you are forking moron. LOOK AT THE DJA AND THE NASDAQ. DOUBLED UNDER “O’BIMBO” GET BACK ON YOUR MEDS

            Hogwash, if you knew anything about the stock market you wouldn’t be making a fool of yourself commenting on what you know nothing about.

            I know plenty about it as does my financial advisor. My portfolio has doubled since 2009 but you “smartly” have no investments because you “know” better…. ur a laugh sensation.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            How do you know what my financial situation is? Your presumption indicates that you are a loser on the stock market, as well as anywhere else. Double nothing is still nothing. Please keep investing in losers, you are meat on the table for others. Especially your “financial advisor” who is making money off of selling your ass in the street.

      • WadeBaker

        Target-rich environment, but I’ll take wind and solar. It’s one of the biggest scams since global warming. The equipment never generates enough power to pay for its expense and maintenance. That’s why it’s only installed when the government is stupid enough to subsidize it.

      • Eva Holiman

        Ever hear, figures don’t lie but liars do figure? You do know he had the way unemployment and such changed to reflect through outcome he desired? Health ins: my state used to have “charity hospitals, ” those w/o ins. went there. Sorry, I have worked, paid in to SS since 1956, I have paid my “dues” and my own insurance. Every county has one or more County Health Departments, offering many basic health needs, immunizations, etc., I have been there many times during my lifetime. My state has recently had to close some and shorten hours for others. People could go there instead of expensive Emergency Rooms for basic, first screening. Young adults should not be having to subsidize the insurance for those without. That is a horrible turn of events due to obama’s plan for exactly such. Taking from those working, giving to those spending their lives sitting on their bottoms! Payments are too high and deductible s too high to use! Sorry if lots of people do not have insurance, they were mostly making out before obama screwed up the good working system we had. Is your IQ room temperature? It must be if you believe the lies put out by the obama administration. I use lower case “o” for a reason, not an error in typing!

        From Canada
        I think Obama was the worst President ever
        Just 1 example, forcing citizens to buy medicare or be fined
        And 1 more, constantly talking and talking
        Just to hear himself talking
        Just like Justin Trudeau, they got along great apparently

        Was extremely happy to see Trump elected
        I was really surprised that crooked Hill & Bill
        Managed to get as many votes as they did

            I feel much safer travelling in the USA now that Trump is President
            While Her Majesty HRC
            Wandered aimlessly through tangled woods
            Trying unsuccessfully to untangle her brain
            I was very cautious and stayed at lodgings
            Far removed from wooded areas
            From whence she or her pack
            Of reality bereft minions
            Might suddenly assault me
            During Obama’s disasterious 8 years
            Just 1 time per year did I visit USA
            Real Americans are very nice people
            You sound like an angry American
            Perhaps with the new healthcare plan
            You could get the pre-existing anger under control
            Nothing personal, maybe Anger Management

  • Ed Heavner

    Everything Obama did was a farce. His anemic economic growth, his apology tour, his foreign policy and his scandal ridden administration all was a big farce.

  • Michael Fremer

    What bullshit from this transgendered idiot.

    Obama inherited FROM A REPUKLICAN the WORST economy since the Great Depression.

    Stock market HALVED.
    Credit market FROZEN.
    Housing bubble BURST,
    and 11% unemployment as we lost 700,000 jobs a MONTH.

    SINCE THEN: under 5% unemployment (measured the same way as when a white guy is in the White House)
    stock market MORE THAN DOUBLED,
    RECORD job creation
    housing market recovered
    credit market recovered,
    AUTO INDUSTRY AGAIN HEALTHY etc.
    LOW inflation
    LOW energy prices

    You have to be an IMBECILE to not acknowledge these things. You want to talk about GDP growth? There’s a serious discussion to be had about that, but don’t expect it from Pamela Gelding.

    You don’t like the jobs created? Blame robots. Robots have taken over semi-skilled jobs that used to pay $30 an hour and they are NOT coming back nor are the coal jobs also taken now by automation. You think Trump is bringing manufacturing jobs back to America? He makes all of his crap overseas as does Ivanka for the same reasons as everyone does: cheap labor.
