Obama saved us by giving a trillion dollars to his banker friends.
That’s the lens through which President Obama saw his responsibilities, and it’s a consistent theme in all the stories we’ve collected. Every decision he made was meant to stop the economy from spiraling out of control, put people back to work, and reverse the trends that had buffeted middle class for decades.
Obama did reverse the trends. He replaced steady below 5% unemployment under Bush, with 7.6% chronic unemployment and the weakest recovery of all time.
