We continue our series of "Top Ten" lists - - - the "Greatest Hits" of Barack Obama - - - taken from the web site "Please Cut The Crap", which lists 400 accomplishments of the first openly bi-racial President. Each claim comes with a link that allows you to check out the basis of the claim.

Don't let the "Fake News History Team" re-write the story of what actually happened under the Obama Administration. It was truly one of the best periods of modern American life, despite the continual efforts of the Republican Elite Class to distort the picture. Trump inherits a peaceful nation with a steadily growing economy. If the status quo is not maintained, the fault is with Trump, not Obama.

Specific Examples of Economic Improvement

As of October 2016, a record 73 consecutive months of overall job growth.

As of August 2016, Unemployment drops below 5% for the first time in eight years and without a significant bubble, remains below 5% all year so far. 4.9%

As of October 2016, there have been 80 consecutive months of private sector job growth.

In April 2016, new unemployment claims hit their lowest level since 1973. As of September 2016, they remain at 43-year lows. That means lower than at any time during Saint Reagan’s Administration.,

Since February 2010, when unemployment peaked, 15.6 million non-farm private sector jobs have been created.

Contrary to GOP rhetoric, most of the new jobs created have been full-time, not temporary.

Oversaw a reduction in the federal budget deficit by two-thirds since taking office.

Reduced the federal budget deficit from 9.8% of GDP in Fiscal Year 2009 under Bush, to 2.5% of GDP in FY 2015.

Scolds Congress and gets a $305 billion highways bill passed. This bill has the added benefit of created hundreds of thousands of new jobs and creating incentives for green cars.

Stock market has reached record highs, restoring most of the economic losses felt during the Bush Recession.
