Do you approve of president Obama's handling of the economy?

It's been very slow to recover. I need to look up the facts but, the recession has been happening sine 2008. And it's still not fully recovered. 5 years....isn't that the longest recession?

Anyway, it's looking better but why so slow to recover?

Because our congress is dysfunctional school children that refuse to make any compromises. I'm to the point of throwing my hands up and saying "sure let's do the republican plan" when it fails we can try another. At least we would be doing something

1815-1821 longest recorded recession 6 years. So yeah we are inching closer to the record. And if we stay on course other recessions might average to longer times.

The recession ended in 2009. We just aren't growing as fast as everyone wants, due in large part to the inaction of congress and austerity.

@gem, do you have a source for that?

Horrible! He has been spending like a maniac. We have never had a president spend at a level this high. The debt is skyrocketing under this communist dictator. We need to get rid of all these regulations and then maybe we will see some job growth.

I just realized that even while saying something crazy sarcastic like that, I still come across normal because that is how people actually talk and think.

Looks like how Clinton started. From horrifying debt and deficit to deficit reduction and then finally surplus to projected elimination of the debt within 10 years...... Then America got drunk and elected another republican

We'll see if history will repeat itself because at this pace, I can see us start paying down the debt in the near future

Well. Not really. America elected Al Gore. George Bush became president. :)

From in rapid decline to steadily growing. I'd say that's an improvement of the economy.

It has been growing, and the deficit is falling, what is there not to like?

Yes, if we had a smaller stimulus bill our recovery would have been slower.

Starting points: Debt nearing $17t but national deficit shrinking tremendously, 40+ months straight of positive job growth, unemployment at 7.6%, stock market at record highs, housing market recovering quickly
