Working under almost insurmountable odds, Pres. Barack Obama has brought this country back from the brink with a significantly improved economy. A CNN/ORC poll found recently, “52% describe the U.S. economy as very or somewhat good, while 48% call it very or somewhat poor.” These figures are a first for the Obama presidency but were a long time coming due to those odds. First, there has been a hateful Congress that opposed everything the President has done in the last almost seven years. A current example is the opposition of Loretta Lynch for Attorney General; it has taken 165 days and still counting. The other major odds he had to overcome is the massive damage done to the economy by Geo. W. Bush like the financial meltdown, two major wars, home market tanking, soaring oil prices, a shrinking dollar and more.
And what have Republicans accomplished during the Obama administration? Nothing, but confront and repel anything the President did. That’s why the GOP Congress has an approval rating of 28%, disapproval of 67%.
