    Barack Obama will be lucky to average a 1.55% GDP growth rate.

    According to Louis Woodhill, if the economy continues to perform below 2.67% GDP growth rate this year, President Barack Obama will leave office with the fourth worst economic record in US history.

    Assuming 2.67% RGDP growth for 2016, Obama will leave office having produced an average of 1.55% growth. This would place his presidency fourth from the bottom of the list of 39*, above only those of Herbert Hoover (-5.65%), Andrew Johnson (-0.70%) and Theodore Roosevelt (1.41%).

    In the first quarter of 2016, Obama rates with the worst economic growth of any president in history award.  Trump! 

    Obama is an obnoxious person, who doesn't paint the same picture of himself as the numbers and facts do, (with the media's help of course).
    Please, feel free to ad some satire.  I love it! 

    Barack Obama's Sad Record on Economic Growth:
    The rate of real economic growth is the single greatest determinate of the United State‚Äôs strength as a nation and also the American people's well-being. -- … 01987.html

    Hillary Clinton wants to be president and Obama's "legacy" and she promises to protect and continue Obama's "achievements."  NoObamaCare...(laugh), and not a single year with a 3% GDP growth. 
    No thank you, Hillary, I want America to be great again.

    I am watching this year's presidential primaries and moving forward. It will be interesting to see if the final nominees are Trump on GOP and Clinton on Democrat side. Right now it looks like these two will go head to head for the presidency. This will also determine what future changes will occur upon which one wins presidency.

      Mathematically, its already a Trump vs Clinton.  It will sink in with the others and they will quit sometime soon I suppose.  Sanders may be hoping that Hillary will still be indicted (I am), so that he can run, but otherwise he is done for too. 

      It will be one heck of a debt between Trump and Clinton.  Its crazy that she is even allowed to run while under an FBI investigation.  BTW, the American survives of the Benghazi attack have endorsed Trump, no surprise there.

        I figure she may name Biden as vice president so if she is impeached (assuming she keeps postponing the inevitable) then he would be like having Obama too! What a mess!

          That is interesting, I hadn't thought of that. Hillary might pick Biden as vice president if she can cheat and buy her way to the WH.  I kind of think she would pick her daughter, Chelsea.  She has been grooming her all her life for politics.

    Even if Obama's popularity  rate  as a president weren't tanking , His  political  manifest alone  dictates a horribly divisive style of "leadership ", Period .   A lot of liberals liked to bash Bush  but  GW Bush will look like the king of   Camelot  comparably .  for one ,  Al Sharpton the most racially offensive man on earth has been to the White House  how many dozens of times ?    Any popular   Pres. Obama legacy is ruined by his reverse racist  divisiveness , his ineffective socialist  regime- creative-ism  and his dictatorial way of  policy making  .

      I can agree with you on all points except Bush looking like the king of Camelot.  Its looking like the conspiracy theorists were right about 9/11.  Bush was the one who classified those 28 pages of the investigation.  Obama hasn't declassified those pages, so in my opinion they are both the worst presidents ever....Obama being the worst or the worst. 

      Neocan Bush was good buddies with Prince Bandar bin Sultan of Saudi Arabia.  As a matter of fact Bandar is called "Bandar Bush" because of their close relationship.  If you do image searches you'll also see Bush holding hands with the Saudi king (kissie, kissie).  Let me mention Alwaleed Talal also.

      Before 9/11, Bush and Bandar were photographed smoking cigars together at the White House. I suppose they were discussing how they would get the royal family (bin Laden's included) out of the US after the attacks. 

      Obama flies over to Saudi Arabia and bows to the king like a loyal servant. Obama won't declassify those 28 pages because Saudi Arabia threatened to pull out their $750 billion in US Treasury Bonds if they are sued by the United States for their involvement in 9/11.   

      I believe that neocons Bill Clinton and Hillary, have been bought by Saudi Arabia, and many more people who have held office in the WH.  The Bush family and the Clintons are very close friends, like family.  Barbara Bush went on record to say that she loves Bill.  Oh yeah!   BTW, the Bush family bought property in South America to get out of the heat. 

      Iraq got blamed for what the Saudis should have been wiped off the face of the earth for.  Its all coming to light and the grand illusion is being exposed.   

      Saudi Arabia is the most evil regime on the face of the earth and are responsible for creating ISIS along with the Obama Administration / CIA.   

      I'm a humanitarian, a libertarian and a nationalist, and that's why I am pulling for Trump (not because of party, but because of the individual), he cannot be bought.  All the corrupt world leaders are scared of a Trump presidency because that would change their evil New World Order agenda, everywhere.

      These are very dangerous times for Trump and he knows it, but he is willing to risk it all for America.  He is a brave man, and he is being honest. The hounds of hell have been called out to stop his freedom of speech...that should tell anyone what kind of a stand up man he is. But, some people will believe MSM and the corrupt politicians.

    One question:  Where did he start from?

      I think Obama started at conception just like all of us.  wink

    yeah Obama was a really horrible president. That's why he was elected to office twice,  and actually did some of the things that he set out to do, and the only reason he didn't achieve more was because the republican majority in congress blocked everything he tried to do. Not because they were bad ideas, they did it just because they didn't want a black man in the white house.

    The price of gas has been at record lows, not seen since Clinton was president, and unemployment has dropped to half of what it was when Bush was president. We are no longer constantly fighting a worthless war that Bush created, and profited from. America was turned to a crap hole by Bush, and Obama did his best to dig us out of the mess that Bush created.

    The good news for you haters is that Obama will not be president soon. The bad news is, that we have two bigot lying assholes on the republican side, who might actually be president. I will vote for Hillary or Bernie, or fricking Mickey Mouse. To be spared from the alternative.

    If I could I would move to Canada.

    If Hillary is smart she will choose Biden or Sanders to run with her, or the other way around. They campaign on people coming together, and not trying to be deport or take away the rights of citizens like the other losers are spouting. The only people the Republicans want in the country is the rich, and everyone else can leave, and they wouldn't care.

    Trump and Bernie are on the same page when it comes to Obama's Globalist trade treaties, TPP / TTIP. If the media ever pumped up the truth about the Globalist water-boy's dangerous treaties the majority would be a real threat to him.

    Millions of people support Trump and Bernie, and for some good reasons, because people are waking up.  Hopefully, the FBI will speed up their investigation on Hillary. 

    I can tell that you listen to mainstream media from what you say and don't know.

    If I listened to the mainstream media, all I would be hearing about is Trump.

    No, I am talking about the difference between 8 years of Bush, and 8 years of Obama.
    Bush did nothing but start wars, play golf, and give away billions of tax dollars to his corporate buddies. Or do you not remember when he gave insurance companies 800 billion dollars, only to find out that they threw a massive party for themselves, and gave their CEO's huge raises in pay.

    When Obama became president he made those same companies pay that money back with interest. Those companies were never in danger of failing. It was just a big scam, and they never gave their customers discounted rates as they promised they would.

    Name one positive thing that Bush did during his 8 years in office. I can't think of anything. As for Obama's trade deals, the last one he was involved in got voted down. Nafta was started by Bush Senior, and Clinton just sealed the deal. The trade deal that Obama was working on was with Peru, and 6 other countries. That deal was started by bush junior, and Obama was glad when it got shot down.
