    Facts are unbelievably stubborn things.
    Compare these changes for the last year of the Bush presidency 2008 versus the last full year of the Obama presidency 2013:

    Full time workers: 120 million vs. 116 million

    Workforce participation: 66% vs. 63.2%

    Home ownership: 70% vs. 62%

    Median income: $55,484 vs. $52,098

    Poverty rate: 13% vs. 15%

    People on food stamps: 31.6 million vs. 47.8 million

    Debt-to-GDP: 64.8% vs. 101.6%
