A simple look at the hard data shows a steady line of improvement in all areas last time I looked. I haven’t seen anything major he’s done or drastic jumps in any areas creating major shifts. He mostly golfs, attends campaign rallies, watches tv and is on Twitter for the most part. He did give corporations a major tax break, but I don’t see manufacturing jobs ever coming back to the us when they can pay people 1$ an hour in another country. He has cut a lot of regulations which is never a bad thing usually. I don’t know how long Obama gets credit but I feel comfortable now saying things are staying right on track with where they were headed. The economy isn’t my strong area and I haven’t looked at the data in a while so it’s possible I’m incorrect. If he gets re-elected and we keep this up I will give him the credit. If he actually did something with healthcare I would be more inclined to say he had a good presidency. For the most part he seems to have spent his political capital undoing Obama legislation just to say I told you so
You obviously spent no time looking at manufacturing employment numbers.
Under obama, about all we can say is we survived, barely. It was American business that gutted it out for 8 years despite every Marxist style assault thrown our way by the radical obama administration. Now that we have a pro-growth president and administration, business is not under threat every time we clock in in the morning.
Some people just have no idea how bad and antagonistic those 8 years were to businesses just trying make a widget, meet a payroll, and survive.
