2. I haven't posted here in months but I have to comment on this.

Take Ohio, Governor Kasich took credit for and ran on the Obama economic recovery and got 64% of the vote! Why in the hell were Democrats scared
to take credit? At this time in the Reagan administration the unemployment was 7%, he had quadrupled the deficit and the stock market was up
around 180%. In the Obama abministration the unemployment has dropped to 5.9%, he has cut the deficit by almost 2/3 and the stock market has went up
over 220%. Instead of Democrats taking credit, they would play down the economy always saying "in this bad economy" . Instead of taking credit for the ACA they let
the Republicans beat them up with it.
