Yet, on the positive side, there have already been more jobs created this year alone (1,314,000) than Bush-II created in his entire eight years in office (1,095,000). Sounds like improvement to me.

So you think it is a major accomplishment, to come in after a period where we had a major terrorist event on the home soil, as well as went into a major recession and have a dramatic banking fiasco

and to during the period of recovering from all that, a natural time you would expect a relative explosion of growth due to the long period of stagnation is a success because it was not as bad as the time the the terrible events were happening.

So, just to rephrase, you think the construction company that comes in after your house has burned down, who takes four years to remove the debris and put in a concrete slab did a good job, because well it was better than when they started? In fact they were better than the other construction company who built a nice home in 5 months 5 years ago that was burned down because it was hit by lightening. After all after 4 years you were in better shape than the end of the previous 8 years!

That sounds as dumb as imaginable.
