GDP was -8.9 when he took office and is now +2. Dow is up over 80%. Unemployment (a VERY lagging indicator) is down 22%. The normal rate of unemployment is roughly 6% and we are currently at 7.9%, down from 10% in 2009. The number will never be 0%. The jobs are not all back, but they have recovered significantly.
Statistics are very nice, so is the BS the media tell you but reality is far different. Go talk to a student currently in college or one that has been out in the past 4 years.
