Obama reelected in November 2012 and the economy drops from a growth of 3.1% in the 3rd quarter 2012 to -0.1 % in the 4th quarter 2012. http://www.pjstar.com/free/x930793247/U-S-economy-shrinks-in-4th-quarter Obama elected in November 2008; unemployment increases from 6.5% in october 2008 to 8.3% in February 2009. http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000 Is there a pattern. Is business really that afraid of Obama and his Marxist philosophy? Well they should be. After increasing the national debt by ~$6 trillion dollars in 4 years he still insists there is no spending problem. And for about 6 years we have been told the man is a walking, talking genius, can think faster than the Cray supercomputer can calculate.
