If I told you this...
Then told you that in March of 2000, the publicly traded Internet companies made up a whopping 8% of the market itself... To the tune of meager $1.3 trillion...[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=OCCH;4433040]This is a fair statement, but let's not forget he had a democratic majority and still couldn't get anything passed.
I agree it's "stupid" to place unreasonable blame on Obama, but it's just as ignorant to assume things would be better if he'd "gotten his way". Many people feel his policies will not benefit this country in the long run, and the fact that he's only been a one-term President doesn't change that fact . . .[/QUOTE]
He got healthcare, the repeal of DADT and the stimulus with that majority. Whether you like those or not, it's not like they did nothing. After the midterm elections though? Nothing got done.
There were cuts in spending, coupled with investment in infrastructure on the table and the GOP refused. We'd be better off right now if we had done that.
