Worst. Recovery. Ever.

Tyler Durden's picture

As the champagne glasses clink in Washington over a record-breaking streak of job growth on record (as the percent of the population employed slumped), and the fastest wage growth since the start of the recovery (for managers), we just wanted to remind a few blinkered media types that Obama's "recovery" has officially been the worst recovery in US history (despite adding almost $10 trillion to the national debt)...

When 'fake news' and 'peddling fiction' meet fact...

Not quite as rosy an economic handover to Trump as The White House would like everyone to believe.

Trying to figure out if that spells anything. Woulda been a lot cooler if it did (in my best Matthew McConaughey "Wooderson" voice)

I had no acronym in mind when I posted.  However, I did originate the "MUTANT" acronym on here a couple/few years ago.

The M.U.T.A.N.T.S. are destroying this world...and especially the District of Criminals is seriously infested with them:









Feel free to use it right in their faces if you ever run into one of the MUTANTS ;-)

Question for Obama: Was this Bush's fault or did the Russians hack the economy?  

A real President would have tried to help save the country instead of worrying about his own legacy, and saddling the country with double the debt.

In his defense, Obama did not actually want to have the economy recover for the middle class.

The black middle class suffered the most while worthless obama was in office

They lost a generation of employment, wealth, and progress.

Jobs, homes, savings, pensions, and health care all stolen by the dc enabled banksters.

Now the black ex-middle class people are back in the ghetto cities fighting for scraps with the BLM clowns.

Poor bastards, they didn't have a chance with this jibroni in office.

Just imagine Barry rather than Flounder from Animal House asking for ten trillion dollars rather than ten thousand marbles (three second clip) - get about the same economic impact.

But boy's on Wall Street have been touting this as the best recovery ever and to buy stocks.

Even with these fake GDP numbers by understating inflation.

Someone needs to airbrush that light blue line out of the graph. Can't have truthiness disturbing 0's legacy.

"Recovery" is far better than the shitstorm that happens once tRump gets the keys (then we will be dying for any kind of recovery). There will be no revovery until he is gone ... which might not actually take too long.

The anti-midas President.  Everything he touches turns to sh*t.  And when it does, he blames it on somebody else (the Russians currently).  It's almost as if the man hated America and everything it stands for or something...  Wait a minute... Processing...  This is very telling about the American public who voted for him, twice. C'mon Jan. 20th...

"America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit." - Sen. Barack Obama, March 16, 2006

“Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them… well, I have others.” - Groucho Marx

Something is deeply wrong if an economy is not growing, because it means these natural processes are impeded. That is why around the world, since the Dark Ages, lack of growth has been a signal of political oppression or instability. Absent such sickness, growth occurs.” - Adam Posen, “Debate: The Case for Slower Growth”

“The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' ”- Ronald Reagan - 40th president of US (1911 - 2004)  

“The enduring lesson of the 20th century is that socialism is a failure, and free markets are a success. But the politicians keep advocating just a little more socialism.” - Milton Friedman

"One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results." - Milton Friedman

“If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand” – Milton Friedman

  Jimmy Carter has a raging boner...  He's officially #2 in the worst POTUS category, fior the last hundred years.

   lol- WE should start giving second worst awards. We can call them " Joe Biden" trophies.

Carter #2...well, yes, after Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush senior....


Shpedly's picture

If you consider virtue, Carter was hardly the worst President in history. The poor guy just had the worst luck ever.

Yen Cross's picture

  Were you of age during the Carter administration?

   Carter was another "peanut head" puppet, that never should have held the job of POTUS.

 I do agree, Carter has grown to see the light with age.

Skiprrrdog's picture

You hire a halfrican pansy mangina to do a man's job... no huge surprise. ObowelMovement is the worst   president   ever....

I'm scratching my little head trying to answer one silly question. When have I EVER seen a leader of African descent properly guide, manage, and inspire ANY organization of ANY size, either in the United States or anywhere else on this entire planet? Can't think of one. Wait. Colin Powell! Opps, no, never mind.
