Obama’s REAL record in one chart

Posted: September 23, 2012 at 4:17 am   /   by

Recoveries do not normally take as long as Obama’s. Once a downturn hits bottom, economic indicators begin to climb almost immediately. Job recovery, for example, tends to be V-shaped, meaning it heads back up from the bottom at a similar rate to its decline.

Some things that do not happen in a recovery? Poverty does not get worse. Food stamp use does not go up. Household income does not fall. There is a net job gain, not a net job loss.

This. Is. Not. A. Recovery.
