The economy is blowing up like a MOAB en route to an ISIS hideout. Naturally, leftists are trying to keep all the credit to themselves and their mocha-hued demigod, Obama.
Bad news for Obama fanboys: a bunch of economists just shattered that fantasy. They’re giving the credit to the Donald. For reals.
Who deserves credit for the booming economy? This is not a petty argument. How voters answer the question could well determine whether Democrats retake the House of Representatives come November.
Trump and Obama (and their admirers) are slugging it out, both claiming that it is their policies that have led to the ongoing economic expansion, steady job growth and higher stock prices.
Happily for President Trump, the pros agree with him. A recent survey of economists suggest it is President Trump, and not Obama, who should be taking a bow.
The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.
Wait, you mean to tell me the anti-regulation, tax-cutting Trump is better for businesses than Barry “you didn’t build that” Obama?
Actually, Trump doesn’t get credit for boom either. Yeah, you read that right. What he does get credit for is stepping aside and getting out of the way of industry. The problem has always been a meddling federal government holding America back. Obama put us on an extra-short leash. Trump, by all accounts, is letting us off of it.
Judging from all the good news going around, the tax cuts and regulation reform are working. Employees are getting raises and bonuses. Some manufacturing jobs are even starting make their way back stateside. None of which was happening when Barry Big Head had his narrow posterior parked behind the Resolute Desk.
Face it lefties, when it came to the economy, Barry-O was a complete dunce. More on that…
