Obama has been continuing most of Bush's policies, along with a few new ones, but he is no-where near as destructive as Bush was. [/quote] This has been going on for decades. Obama is Bush on STEROIDS. He just has the MSM to hide his 'dirty little secrets' for him. Obama has involved the USA in more wars than any other nation in history....all in the name of 'promoting peace'. If you still believe in the left/right paradigm, frankly, you need to study a bit more. It's like WWF wrestling, they 'pretend' to hate each other for the cameras than follow the EXACT SAME agendas. The only losers are the people. [/quote]
Creating the illusion of economic growth is easy if you can print money. It’s a prank you can play on an entire country. Cut the value of the currency in half and the economy’s size will appear to double.
The only way to accurately measure changes in a nation’s economy is to do so relative to the world (see Notes for non-nerds below before protesting). According to the World Bank, the U.S. represented 31.8% of the world’s economic activity in 2001. By the end of 2011, that share had dropped to 21.6%, meaning America’s slice of the world economy is 32% smaller than it was a decade ago, and getting smaller every day. Note that America’s housing bubble did nothing to boost the U.S. on the global stage.
