nOT ONLY ARE YOU A TROLL BUT AN OUTRIGHT LIAR TOO. The recession was caused by the democrats and Obama was part of it as a Senator. It has been proven that CRA was the main cause of the recession and Obama has done very little to improve the conditions after the fact. So many people have stopped even looking for work and therefore fallen off the unemployment rating radar. Clinton left office with a debt over 5trillion dollars. Bush had the highest income for this country in US history. Wow are you delusional or just totally ignorant of hard facts. OR are you a paid troll?
