Obama inherited an economy that was in need emergency resuscitation and he managed, in spite of a Republican Congress that vowed to sabotage anything he did, to nurse it back to health and pass a robust economy with a 4% unemployment rate on to Trump. Trump is riding the Obama wave and claiming credit, I doubt he could have done as well.
Very shortly after he was in office the market went up and he very vociferously claimed it.
Probably because he was blamed for what happened later and Irak.
I’ve been around since Ike and things just don’t change with each new administration. So it’s crazy to get so worked up in ten years it will be like Watergate, old news.
I don’t remember Bush getting hammered for the economy as soon as he mwas in office.
I remember we had a budget surplus when he came in and an enormous debt when he left.
Yes I lost a lot of money. My wife is in wealth management so those kind of things come home.
I honestly don’t remember that.
It just feels like you’re yelling at me.

We'll never know...and that my friend, I'm glad to say..
It’s impossible to have a debate with a crystal ball. I could make unreasonable predictions about the future too but that gets us nowhere.
Have you noticed the influx of Anti Trump socks lately, while some members are strangely absent? Very childish but, whatever pays the bills. Amirite?
What evidence do you have to make that statement? It would be like me comparing Trump to Mussolini.
Okay discussions over mutt just proved it was the Democratic Party’s fault. That was easy.
Okay it was all the Democrats fault. Thank you.
What’s with the bold caps?
For the same reasons Trump immediately started taking credit for anything good that happened.
If you go on Youtube and search that matter, you'll find him doing a lot of blaming..
Of course if you put a favorable spin on them....It isn't so.
I’ll take your word for it but it wasn’t the torrent of bile Trump serves up every week.
Even if that was true...I'm glad Trump won and not Hillary.
We would be in soup lines right now... and Obama would be getting blamed for not leaving anything for Hillary to work with.
She very likely would have carried on the successful policies that had safely nurtured the economy.
Soup lines? Selling pencils and apples on the corner. Oh yeah that’s what would have happened.
Have you ever heard any politician do that?
None, are you comparing that to the meltdown in 2008?
Exactly. Obama was one of the best president ever, he pulled us out of what would have been the greatest depression ever. Millions of jobs would have been lost. I'm just thankful he was president at that time in our history instead of Trump. Trump has done nothing except ride in on President Obama's coat tails....
And all the homes that were lost, it’s hard to place the blame on any single institution there was so much corruption and incompetence to go around.
Of course he should shoulder some of the blame. He deregulated the banks. But he also left office with a budget surplus.
Why can’t we have intelligent civil debates without resorting to cheap sarcasm and insults that do nothing that helps us understand each other.
Obama did not spend his time blaming past administrations he just got to work. He was paid? They all are.
