notagood asked: Okay, are you seriously blaming an increase in unemployment from 2008 to early 2009 on a president who wasn't even in charge? I get you don't like democrats, but I'm pretty sure they can't get policies enacted retro-actively.If your complaint is "He didn't lower it fast enough, I kinda see where you're coming from, but it still dropped. Which is more than it did during Bush's presidency.
No, he didn’t cause the unemployment. He caused the prolonged period of unemployment. Historically and economically speaking, the worse a recession, the stronger and faster the recovery. Unless you enact the wrong policies, which Obama did, which is why his economy is balls. Either he’s very incompetent or he’s keeping us in the hole on purpose.
