Obama’s Final Numbers; Statistical indicators of President Obama's eight years in office.

The numbers are nearly all in now. What they show about what really happened during the eight years that Barack Obama was president is sometimes different from what politicians claimed.

The economy gained a net 11.5 million jobs. The unemployment rate dropped to below the historical norm.
Average weekly earnings for all workers were up 4.1 percent after inflation. The gain was 3.7 percent for just production and nonsupervisory employees.
After-tax corporate profits also set records, as did stock prices. The S&P 500 index rose 166 percent.
The number of people lacking health insurance dropped by 15 million. Premiums rose, but more slowly than before.
The federal debt owed to the public rose 128 percent. Deficits were rising as Obama departed.
Home prices rose 20 percent. But the home ownership rate hit the lowest point in half a century.
Illegal immigration declined: The Border Patrol caught 35 percent fewer people trying to get into the U.S. from Mexico.
Wind and solar power increased 369 percent. Coal production declined 38 percent. Carbon emissions from burning fossil fuel dropped 11 percent.
Production of handguns rose 192 percent, to a record level.
The murder rate dropped to the lowest on record in 2014, then rose and finished at about the same rate as when Obama took office.

Obama did nothing to worsen race relations other than bringing the closet racists out in the open because of his race.

Thar's plenty of thoughts on this subject and the left will surely deny it, because they can't admit they elected a nobody, from nowhere, with no experience, but the proof is in the puddin!!!

^ That article does nothing to refute my assertion that it was the REACTION to Obama that worsened race relations, not what he himself did.

yet the fact remains - race relations took a plunge during Obama's term.

statements like "he looks like my son" about known criminals doesn't help. Supporting divisive cultural marxist agendas at government supported universities didn't help either - these are all coming home to roost now.,

Wow - people pay for WAPO? That's like paying to lick up a dog's vomit.

I was referring to Obama's comment about Trayvon Martin, where he said that he could have been his son.

Trayvon Martin committed assault.

He was convicted by fate.

Trayvon Martin committed assault.

So he was tried and convicted in a court of law? Or by the vigilante dirtbag Zimmerman?

By Zimmerman - self-defense against a thug - or in other words "Obama's son"
