Obama’s REAL record in one chart
Recoveries do not normally take as long as Obama’s. Once a downturn hits bottom, economic indicators begin to climb almost immediately. Job recovery, for example, tends to be V-shaped, meaning it heads back up from the bottom at a similar rate to its decline.

This. Is. Not. A. Recovery.
