    The Great Obama Failed Recovery, in graphs

    The Great Obama Failed Recovery, in graphs

    A series of graphs demonstrate just how disastrous the Obama (failed) Recovery has been for our country, made all the more stark when compared to prior post-war “recoveries.” Jacob Goldstein writes on the NPR blog that while this first chart, produced by the blog Calculated Risk, is scary:


    …But it isn’t “scary enough.” He then produces this graph, which illustrates the abysmal failure that is the Great Obama Failed Recovery (click for interactive version):

    That NPR put this out is news in itself – a day late and a dollar short, or more accurately six months late and a few trillion short. This indictment of Obama’s (non-existent) leadership skills should have been put out there at least a year ago if not two years ago. Let us not forget that this is an indictment of Congress also.

    So only the Great Depression exceeds this recession. Given Obama’s narcissism, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go for the record.

    This is a curious graph, however. Note that a recession that started in 1980 (Carter’s term) seems to recover, but overlaps or is immediately followed by a recession in 1981 (Reagan’s term). Any economist out there who can explain this to me? It is clear to me the graph is normalized to a specific beginning period, but I am not sure how this overlap period, if it is an overlap, is properly explained.

    I see that the Obama Economic recovery has a -1 correlation to human flourishing. That’s because the Obama/Reich economic plan is to f*** the American people to “help” the American people.

    Heck Anne, who cares about a failed recovery? We should be thrilled, excited, happy, ecstatic because, like some guy said — was it Jayzee or Jamie Foxx? — my president is black!



    Fuggedaboutdat! Look upon Barack’s café au lait and drown all America’s economic woes in that.

    Come on folks! Did you miss the memo? These graphs should include the funemployed, Ophonies, and fOdstampers, that are doing just fine living off the hard working that still have a job.

    I forgot to mention one point: while the elite of the left is seeking to impoverish the masses so as to provide them with a meager guaranteed living, they have no plan on joining the masses. Rather, they will be the future rich, much like the corrupt ‘green’ company Obama donors who have looted the US treasury with Obama’s help.
