Debate Round No. 1

This debate will focus around the economic results of the President of the United States. We will not be looking at global macro economics but instead at U.S economic policy

Before we look at the great economic success of obama we must first look at the mess Bush left him



As we can see Bush turned Clinton's 236.2 billion dollar surplus into a MASSIVE deficit of 412.7 billion dollars.



We can also see that Bush spiked unemployment rates TWICE.

Now lets get onto the great things Barrack obama has done

1. Cut the deficit in half




2. Spiked job creation





We went from losing 462,000 jobs under bush to gaining over 13,000,000 jobs under Obama

3. Unemployment has gone drastically down



The rise of unemployment shown in this graph was under Bush until Obama took over and then the unemployment rate went from 7.8 percent to 5 percent.

4. Oil Production and exports have gone up





5. Corporate profits have gone up





I will get into more points in later rounds
