Not only is his assessment of his four years a complete falsehood, his assessment of Bush's eight years is even more blatantly false. Under George Bush, jobs were plentiful, and those would be high-paying jobs with great benefits. Americans lived in the highest standard of living ever seen in the world. Any person who WANTED to work had the opportunity. If they wanted to work REALLY HARD, they could become "rich"! Ordinary Americans were living like the proverbial rich - exotic vacations, manis and pedis, granite countertops, designer/boutique everything, including coffee! You can yell all you want about "who caused the economic collapse", but you cannot deny that Americans were living the good life!
