When Obama was sworn in the Dow was around 6600. That is because of the trashing the Repubs did to the economy over 8 years. Normal for Repubs. It is now at 15,364 or 2.34 times.
If that is the result of the "worst president in history" I want more like him.
Since 1900 the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained an average of 8.7 percent a year under Democrats and only 5.7 percent under Republicans.
The Dow's two best years came under Democratic administrations (Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt) and the two worst under Republicans (Hoover and George W. Bush).
The single best period for the Dow under a particular president was Bill Clinton's eight years (up an annualized 16.6 percent) and the single worst was Republican Herbert Hoover's four years (down an annualized 33 percent).
Since 1930, Short's data show, GDP growth has averaged 1.8 percent under Republican administrations and 4.8 percent under Democrats.
Obama is about or already has broken Clinton's all time record Dow increase during any administration.
You could argue that Obama is the best president we have ever had.

The real problem about recognizing #$%$'s is that most people associate it with the Jewish tragedy that occurred while missing the whole social facism part that continues to this day.
Like when an unelected "agency" starts auditing your "papers", confiscates your property, and coerces you with jail time.
The 16th ammendment was passed right under our noses to fund yet another war that the governments of both sides convinced the serfs to fight. Hasn't that been paid off yet?
It should be clear one form of slavery was replaced with another.
Please remember, i had the courtesy to keep this rant contained in this off topic thread where it belongs.
You would prefer #$%$ on toast if that was what was served up.
Funny thing about Americans is they will put up with anything as long as they are allowed to stand in a voting line for a few hours every couple years. That's what they teach in schools for the last 30 years (or more). The best slaves are card carriers.
