That crash, the worst in over 75 years, which threatened to slide the world into a 1930s-style depression, came four months before Obama became president.
The more-than-doubling of yearly deficits accompanying the crash was because of the loss of taxes from millions of workers losing their jobs and their unemployment costs, and that such a crash needs a big stimulus to hasten recovery. That recovery is happening, though not as rapidly as expected, perhaps because of a lack of experience with such a huge crash. A stimulus was understood by reputable economists as necessary.
The bailout of General Motors and Chrysler has been an amazing success in keeping a strong American role in that all-important industry. Up to a million jobs were saved, and to the surprise of many, most of the federal cost of that bailout has already been repaid.
How can any reasonable person object to that?
