They do, especially when you consider that no Obama policy was in place at the time the recession ended. If you go further into the ether, you'll discover that the recovery slowed to a crawl once the Obama policies did go into effect.

Facts do matter.

The lack of detail in the plan makes this sort of prediction impossible to make, and, therefore, not reliable.

Peter Schiff Warns Of "Calm Before The Storm"

by Tyler Durden
Oct 20, 2017

But interest rates are now at just 1.25%. If the stock market were again to drop in such a manner, the Fed has far less fire power to bring to bear. It could cut rates to zero and then re-launch another round of QE bond buying to flood the financial sector with liquidity. But that may not be nearly as effective as it was in 2008. Given that the big problem at that point was bad mortgage debt, the QE program’s purchase of mortgage bonds was a fairly effective solution (although we believe a misguided one). But propping up overvalued stocks, many of which have nothing to do with the financial sector, is a far more difficult challenge. The Fed may have to buy stocks on the open market, a tactic that has been used by the Bank of Japan.

It should be clear to anyone that since the 1990s the Fed has inflated three stock market bubbles. As each of the prior two popped, the Fed inflated larger ones to mitigate the damage. The tendency to cushion the downside and to then provide enough extra liquidity to send stock prices back to new highs seems to have emboldened investors to downplay the risks and focus on the potential gains. This has been particularly true given that the Fed’s low interest rate policies have caused traditionally conservative bond investors to seek higher returns in stocks. Without the Fed’s safety net, many of these investors perhaps would not be willing to walk this high wire.

But investors may be over-estimating the Fed's ability to blow up another bubble if the current one pops. Since this one is so large, the amount of stimulus required to inflate a larger one may produce the monetary equivalent of an overdose. It may be impossible to revive the markets without killing the dollar in the process. The currency crisis the Fed might unleash might prove more destructive to the economy than the repeat financial crisis it's hoping to avoid.

- one of the worst GDP years (10 years) in history

What is this depression that gets brought up now and then? Were people depressed because their was a black president? I was a little down about it Wink, but never depressed.
  

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, when I was dead broke I couldn't picture this.
