The vast majority of the analysts and experts will agree that it typically takes 6-8 yrs for a presidents efforts to be reflected, due to the time it takes to implement his policies....so i guess we should be giving credit to Pres Bush for those numbers....good job on the research tho

Huh?

It is Obama policies that are taking effect, Lol! Bush had been in office for 8 years when the economy CRASHED, and according to your theory, that would mean he crashed it, no?

Well, in 6 more years with this analysis Obama is probably going to look way worse. Leaving the next President with an even worst deficit. I would like to know, how much foreign $$$$ were handed out between Bush and Obama.

This thread is so full of fail I almost want to think that the original post was a troll, and all of the replies were trolls.

Bush didn't crash the economy, Alan Greenspan did. But he was a Bush appointee so I'm glad to spread blame around 100% to everyone, since blame is more of a quality than a quantity. And the Obama cabal has found a clever way to bandage the wound while it actually festers beneath. For anyone here to say that Obama has made the economy good has obviously not had to find an average blue-collar job and then live off it. For anyone to give credit to Bush or Obama for anything except failing miserably at everything is probably a political analysis my 6 year old nephew could debunk.

Easily Explained. Have you ever heard of QE?

The Federal Reserve has created Trillion$ of dollars out of thin air since 2009 and it has been dumped into the securities markets. Good for CEOs, Wall Streeters, Banksters, HFT traders and the like. Of course it's also very good for politicians.

Very bad for the rest of us. If it is dropped back to historical norms, the stock market would immediately crash.

This post is almost too smart to be on CD.
