MORE Trump winning. 

Miss Understanding --- 138 days ago -

Thank you OBAMA! Looka tthe graphs to see when this roll we are on started. 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 138 days ago -

Unbelievable. Good news no matter where it came from. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 138 days ago -

Thank you OBAMA!

Yeah, all that deregulation and corporate tax cuts under Obama really paid off!


BWAHAHAHAHAHA 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 138 days ago -

LOL @ MU

No clue. 

Butterbean --- 138 days ago -

Yup. A trillion of debt here and there does produce jobs and paint a brighter picture.

The bills will come due. What country is the largest debt holder? I don't think I'll live to see the fallout

Next up Soup reports that Oxygen is good for you...another argument no one is having.

You've got to be kidding me. Please explain to me how the debt that more than doubled under the Obama Administration has created one single manufacturing job?

Directly attributable to the the GDP growth and lower unemployment rate is the lower taxes. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 138 days ago -

The liberals will NEVER give any credit to Pres Trump. Their hatred of him blinds them to any good that he does. No matter how good it is. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 138 days ago -

Haven't seen this level GDP growth since 2005. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 138 days ago -

 

Butterbean --- 137 days ago -

Haven't seen a 21 trillion dollar national debt ever.

And it's getting bigger. And bigger. 

DVaz --- 137 days ago -

You weren't complaining during Obama Bin Laden.

The largest number comes from calculating how much the debt increased during Obama's two terms. On January 20, 2009, when he was sworn in, the debt was $10.626 trillion. On January 20, 2017, when he left, it was $19.947 trillion. That's why most people say Obama added $9 trillion to the debt, more than any other president. 

Butterbean --- 137 days ago -

No problem there DVAZ.

You'll get to enjoy the aftermath. 

DVaz --- 137 days ago -

We'll see, won't we Buttercup...

Butterbean --- 137 days ago -

No, I probably will not. Good luck.

While Mr. Trump praised the 4.1 percent annual growth rate in the second quarter, the economy exceeded that level four times during the Obama presidency: in 2009, 2011 and twice in 2014. 

a3295767uu --- 135 days ago -

The GDP was up last week due in part of front end trading in soybeans before tariffs start.
Tariffs are just another form of taxes for everyone. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 135 days ago -

While Mr. Trump praised the 4.1 percent annual growth rate in the second quarter, the economy exceeded that level four times during the Obama presidency: in 2009, 2011 and twice in 2014.?

So four times in 8 years. I sure wouldn't stand on that record. Want to talk unemployment numbers?

More hate from the left! They can't stand to see Pres Trump be successful. 

fuzz81 --- 135 days ago -

The point is that trump claims that it?s ?historic?, but President Obama beat that record 4 times.

So you?re saying Obama?s successes were even more historic. Got it. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 135 days ago -

So you?re saying Obama?s successes were even more historic. Got it.?

I guess you don't comprehend what I said but believe what you want. It isn't worth the effort to explain to you.

How about we compare unemployment numbers between the two Presidents? 

fuzz81 --- 135 days ago -

You have two options:

1. Trump lied about economic growth being historic, since his numbers are lower than Obama?s.
2. If you believe trumps numbers are historic, then Obama had more historic numbers.

It?s pretty simple. Take your pick.

Junior said that.
To be fair, during the Obama administration, the GDP did hit some good monthly and quarterly highs, but never crossed that 3% mark for yearly. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 134 days ago -

but never crossed that 3% mark for yearly.

That's a very important distinction. Plus, lets look at where the GDP starting point was for the Obama Admin and what it should've been 2 years in. 

fuzz81 --- 134 days ago -

Obama hit 2.9% annual in 2015. Trump hasn?t. 

DVaz --- 134 days ago -

Obama hit 2.9% annual in 2015. Trump hasn?t

He has only been in office 1.5 years. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 134 days ago -

Obama also had 4 periods of negative GDP plus one of the largest negative GDP (-8.1) in modern history. 

DVaz --- 134 days ago -

Oops! 

LostWorld --- 134 days ago -

History will only remember it if it?s sustained. 

fuzz81 --- 134 days ago -

the largest negative GDP (-8.1) in modern history

That was bush. 

OrdinaryGuy --- 134 days ago -

Obama has the worst average growth rate of the gdp since Truman. He averaged less than 1.5% per year.

OrdinaryGuy --- 134 days ago -

. Trump lied about economic growth being historic, since his numbers are lower than Obama?s.

BTW...that's ^^^ not a lie. That's the President's opinion.

I wonder why you didn't call out any of Obama's lies.
