    Maybe cause libs love those mushrooms:

    Obama/KKKlinton were actually both members of the Party of the Klan.Almost 12 trillion dollar debt amassed under their combined regimes. Not to mention more destruction to economy (as well as your freedom) than all previous president together.Dont think anyone will ever match that destruction.

    The last two ? Since 1953, the last 10 recessions in US history have started under a Republican President, not counting the current one.

    Hey, it is what they do.  Last three, BTW. 

    Historically, the economy thrives under Dems., while the wealthy thrive under Republicans.

    Note that the wealthy doing well seems to be bad for the rest of us...

    In the fall of 2008, our economy was going to hell in a handbasket, so we turned our country over to a junior Senator with no real leadership experience who abused Cocaine and slept in dumpsters (his own admission) and voted "present" on most legislation that was up for a vote in the Senate.

    Obama then presided over the weakest, slowest, most sluggish, most anemic, most poverty inducing recovery from a major recession in US history. Obama is the only President to have below 3% annual growth for all 8 years of his presidency. Obama did everything in his power to choke the life out of the economy. He raised income taxes in the middle of a bad recession, and also burdened businesses with Obamacare, a huge new expense, which was ruled to be a new additional tax by the SCOTUS. He imposed massive new regulations and executive orders on businesses over and over, (which Trump has now mostly repealed.) And Obama prohibited drilling on Federal lands and in the Gulf, and refused to approve the KeystoneXL pipeline and the Dakota Access oil pipeline, sending the price of gasoline and fuel into very high prices, which further choked the economy and hurt the working class. And Obama approved a loan of ~$530million of US taxpayer funds to Solyndra Corporation, which then went bankrupt 2 weeks after receiving the cash, and many other stupid business decisions. Thankfully, Trump has reversed most of these economically hurtful policies, and we were seeing the wonderful results until the COVID-19 virus hit. 

    Obama's high gasoline and fuel prices, which hurt the working class:
