      *7 Facts That Show Obama’s Economic Recovery Has Been AWFUL*
      Aug 2016 https://www.dailywire.com/news/7-facts-show-obamas-economic-recovery-has-been-aaron-bandler

      *President Barack Obama and recently coronated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton touted the Obama economic recovery at the Democratic National Convention last week, despite the fact that the statistics show that the Obama recovery has been horrid. Here are seven facts proving this.*

      1. The Obama recovery has had a record number of quarters where economic growth has been two percent or lower.

      2. The average real GDP growth of recoveries rate prior to the Obama recovery was 4.3 percent. If the Obama recovery had been right in line with that 4.3 percent, the country would be $2.2 trillion richer today, according to Investor’s Business Daily. The editors at IBD explain further: (emphasis bolded)

      3. The most recent labor participation rate was 62.7 percent, with slightly more than 94.5 million Americans out of the work force. Back in September, the participation rate was 62.3 percent–the lowest in nearly 40 years.

      4. The number of jobs created under the Obama economy has not kept up with the working age population. Obama and Clinton have claimed that there have been nearly 15 million jobs in the private sector created under Obama, and if that number is taken at face value, it doesn’t quite come close to the growth of the working age population of 15.8 million at around the same time frame. But the job gap is likely worse than that.

      5. There has been a decline in business startups and investment. According to Time, there has been a decline of “entrepreneurial activity” from 14 percent in 2014 to 12 percent in 2015, when the four preceding years featured positive growth. In May 2015, The Wall Street Journal‘s Thomas J. Duesterberg and Donald A. Norman described capital investment as “historically weak,” citing the burdensome corporate tax rates and regulations as the reason for the weak amount of investment. This is an important metric since investment is one of the key forces behind economic growth.

      6. There has also been a decline of real household family income. According to Conservative Review, the decline went from $57,000 in 2007 to $53,700 in 2014. Naturally, it follows that the home ownership rate has declined to a near 48-year low.

      7. There has also been a spike of Americans on food stamps. Conservative Review also used data from the Congressional Budget Office to show that the number of Americans food stamps has increased from 26.5 million in 2007 to 44.5 million in 2016. That is a decline from 47.7 million in 2013, but still much higher than pre-recession levels.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 the daily wire is also the one that said Hillary got 20 million fraudulent votes, so I’m not gonna bother reading this 😅

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 oh, yeah, also, Obama couldn’t do anything because he only had the senate for 2 years! And the stubborn repubs wouldn’t budge to raise the minimum wage!

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 STFU TROLL BOT

    • Hey Dan Dan, I see you comment everywhere. I have say you’ve so eloquently captured what the vast majority of us are thinking in the simplest of terms. There’s an end to all this madness in near sight, keep up your persistent work!

  8. Vote Blue or Trump will turn us all Blue.
    Just before we are placed 6 feet Below.

  9. I miss John Mccain …As a Retired Marine, I respect his service to our Country. A true American Hero….

  10. The last honorable rebublican, man I wish rebublicans were more like John McCain

    • I disliked him back then just because he was a republican. Now I look back & can see he was a good man despite our political differences. Hand on my heart, I wish there were still GOP candidates like JM still around. I wouldn’t vote for JM but I’d respect him.

    • What about Mitt?

  11. He said massive red wave.
    A bloodbath of defeat is coming.
    Walk of shame is coming.
    The Trump party will be the party of the 8 Track, The cassette tape,The Beta Max and the floppy disc.
    You are relics. You are analogue information and Morse code, you are rotary phones,you are fire in a cave cooking naked.
    You are extinct.

    This is what grace, strength, intelligence, humanity, looks like. Even in heaven he is still teaching us what a man of God looks like. His life story and his acts of kindness are flowers that are still in full bloom.

  13. The Last Decent Republican. I disagreed with him on policy but I never worried Sen. McCain would betray AMERICA for money, or attack peaceful protests with armed troops. Or spread a deadly disease all over AMERICA for fun and profit.

    McCain served this country with honor and dignity. RIP to a true patriot.

  18. BS. Republican senators knew what they were doing. They also acquitted Trump in his impeachment trial. Vote them out!

    Mc Cain was someone with whom I rarely agreed politically, but who was undoubtedly deserving of my deep respect. #SpreadyKruger, not so much.

  20. I would have called that McCain’s finest hour but then there was the Obamacare vote.
