Why support Obama?

Why support President Obama? Well, here are some reasons:

• The U.S. economy added 288,000 jobs in April, bringing unemployment down to 6.3 percent, the lowest level since 2008.

• The stock market is approaching an all-time high; with the Dow Jones Industrial Average rising about 10 percent, and the NASDAQ about 22 percent during Obama’s time in office.

• More than 8 million Americans have signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, which is 1 million above the administration’s earlier projections. Enough of these new enrollees are young and healthy enough to ensure the program’s continued viability.

• We ended two wars.

Remember, when Obama came into office, he inherited two wars and the worst recession since the Great Depression. I’d say we’re doing pretty well, and that if you want America to succeed you should support our president – or at least not root for him to fail.
