Who has done better in economic growth, Bush II or Obama? Think carefully before answering.


Using 4th Q 2009 through 1st Q 2012 GDP figures, after things stabilized somewhat from the debacle of the 2008 recessions, as a baseline for Obama, and comparing to the 6 similarly long periods from Bush's Presidency, begining in 4thQ 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 2005, and 2006, in which ones did Obama do better. Obviously Obmama clobbered Bush the starting in 2006, but how about the others?

    I know what you are saying junkseller, but even Bush started with a sinking economy helped along with 9/11 and our response to it. They you have his own bungling. Nevertheless, the answer would be 1 (a given), 2, 3, 4, 5 or all 6 slices of time.

    The fact is that socialism does not create millionaires, unless you are part of the political power structure. Second - it is NOT about money - it is about Liberty and the constitutional principles. I disdain Bush and Obama because of their policies.

    Today, nothing has changed. People talk about punishing those responsible for the crash of 2008, but what's the sense in punishment if the underlying behavior has not even been corrected? Short of major reforms to the financial industry, these crises

    Yes he did/yes he has, but by 2010, Obama made it most of the way back, just not employment;most recessions of this type don't; Reagan certainly didn't. Nevertheless, the answer I am wanting would be 1 (a given), 2, 3, 4, 5 or all 6 slices of time.

    True, true, but do you think Obama has done a better job, growth-wise in the last 10 quarters once out of possible 6 slices of time(a given), 2, 3, 4, 5 or all 6?
