Despite All of His Bush-Bashing… GDP Growth Was Greater During the Bush Years Than Under Obama
It’s not news that Barack Obama likes to blame George Bush’s ‘failed policies’ for all of the problems in America today.
But now we know that after four years of Barack Obama the economic growth during the Bush years was greater than during the Obama era.
Despite the Clinton recession, the Attack on 9-11, Hurricane Katrina, two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the mortgage crisis that caused the 2008 financial collapse, GDP growth during the Bush years was higher than during the Obama years.
Under George Bush GDP growth was an average 1.67 percent.
Under Barack Obama GDP growth was an average 1.53 percent.

Remember this the next time Obama bashes George W. Bush.
