As usual fishnman is totally wrong and a complete wing nut idiot!
The US was in serious decline due to Bush/Cheney policies but it is really starting to come back under Obama (with no help forn the Tea Party n ut controled GOP)and is doing much better than Europe and most of the world. TYhe future looks bright in many ways.
The US was in serious decline for the entire duration of the Obama administration. His economic trillion dollar stimulus did not provide a single private sector job, instead we lost more jobs. The workforce participation rate is at a long time low because the administration is claiming the jobless are non participants rather than actualy being unemployed. Corruption of this administration is unparalelled to any before it.
Why is it that republicans are so delusional? The economy was in free fall before Obama ever made it into office, thanks to Bush. What was the Dow at when bush came into office, around 10000 I believe, where was it when he left, around 10000, lost decade. It kills me that people hate Obama that much that they can actually change the facts in their own mind to fit their agenda.
