Obama "worst president ever"?!
Try Andrew Johnson, Hoover...and ...of course...
Have you already forgotten George W Bush who put two wars on the credit card-one totally unnecessary while blowing up the economy?
Meanwhile Obama has 31 consecutive months of private job GROWTH -compared to Bush who was losing over 750 THOUSAND jobs per month; he ended the neo-con war in Iraq and oh BTW he killed that Bin Laden guy Bush wasnt interested in finding.......Obama faced historically unprecedented and in fact treasonous obstruction from the GOP/Tea Baggers in congress yet has righted the ship...it took Bush 8 long incompetent and criminal years to create this mess and you complain that Obama hasnt mopped it up fast enough?! LOL
You must have a serious case of Romnesia.
Quick Answer: Yes, they have forgotten. Because of people's preconceived thought processes, it is in their best interest to find ways to blame Obama for what is quite plainly a direct cause of careless spending, poor investment, and turn-your-back financial legislation from the previous administration.
Popular talking points...
"Oh sure, maybe things are getting a little better, but they'd be even better if a Republican was in the white house!" (with absolutely no concrete evidence to support such a notion.)
"Unemployment was over 10% on Obama's watch!" (even though any reasonable person knows that 10%+ was the latent peak of the Bush 43 crash... he just happened to leave office before it peaked.)
"It just doesn't FEEL like an economic recovery" (abject politically-driven BS, no comment)
"But, but, Solyndra!!!!" (A poor investment, yes, but a really really minor blip on the overall financial radar screen)
"Socialism has come to America!" (Someone REALLY needs to open a dictionary...)
So far, I have heard few, if any at all, concrete arguments against the undeniably factual economic recovery under Obama. This was the steepest job loss in 60+ years... Let's not forget the "Clinton Recession," which only resulted in an unemployment peak of 6.3% in 2003! Not to mention all those wonderful budget surpluses which W. so skillfully wasted.
Numbers don't lie.
