What an #$%$. When Obama took over unemployment was at 7.5% and rising, the DOW was at 7500, interest rate on 10 yr treasury was 7, financial markets were in crapper, 40 million Americans had no healthcare and the housing market was in freefall. Not to mention the radical rightys had us in not one but two quagmires we called wars. Today, unemployment at 7.5% and falling, DOW at 15000, interest rate on 10 yr treasury 2.3%, financial market stable, 20 million Americans now have access to healthcare, and housing is recovering nicely. One war over the other quickly coming to an end. I think the leftest did a fantastic job.
