Blogger Dave Johnson has posted three interesting charts of the economy that shows that the harsh criciticsm of President Obama’s handling of the economy is unfair — particularly when compared to George W. Bush’s handling of the economy.
Johnson writes, “We all want to fix the terrible problems the country has. But it is so important to know just what the problems are before you decide how to fix them. Otherwise the things you do to try to solve those problems might just make them worse. If you get tricked into thinking that Obama has made things worse and that we should go back to what we were doing before Obama — tax cuts for the rich, giving giant corporations and Wall Street everything they want — when those are the things that caused the problems in the first place, then we will be in real trouble.”
