And Obama had the temerity of taking credit for the last three quarters of growth and then saying “Thanks, Obama!”. Obama was responsible for the first quarter of this year, no doubt. His policies might have carried into the second but no one was jumping up and down. Sure, a car can constantly be moving forward but if it’s at only 10mph, nobody is going be jumping up and down for joy.
Meanwhile, it does seem that Trump’s policies have unleashed what economists call “the animal spirits” and things seem to be launching faster and faster and achieving rates that Obama himself said were no longer attainable.
Hold his beer, Obama – your’s went flat a long time ago. More of Trump’s, please!
