29. THIS

And the media pounded the narrative that Obama's economy was basically mediocre and the growth was "weak" with increases in the debt.

This ignored the fact that he went from inherited job losses of upwards of 750,000 a month during the 2009 inauguration month, to a steady average of hires of 200,000+ a month... Plus tangible outcomes were obtained from ARRA ("stimulus" ) where I know in my area, all kinds of old highway overpasses and highways were replaced and/or reconfigured and updated for better traffic flow, older government buildings were made energy efficient with the replacement of old drafty wood windows with energy efficient ones, enhanced air-handling systems were installed, and green roofs were implemented where possible. In addition, many took advantage of the Cash for Clunkers program to get new cars (one of my BILs included), which helped to boost the auto industry and local dealers (I recall back then how many large car dealerships literally closed down and were nothing but empty lots).
