      but it is my understanding that things with our economy on a macro level don't happen overnight. So when Obama took office in January, well shit was still going to hell in a hand bag for the next 3-4 months. The real bottom, which Obama's policies had nothing to do with.

      If you look at the "bikini" chart on unemployment you see this in spades. It wasn't until Obama's second quarter in office that you saw things bottom out and then start to slowly improve.

      I mean it is ECON 101. I had you a check for $1,000 you might spend that money today. But the products you buy, well they might already have it in stock. It takes time for new manufacturing orders to be places. Things don't happen in "real time."

      Again I am not a "raving fan" of Obama, but with the cards he was dealt and the Congress he has had to work with, on the economy side I am not sure what else he could have done.
