"Do you not know how to manipulate a story to your own liking? (Hint: this is one of the ways."

You do realize this was an OPINION piece? In the OPINION section of the newspaper?

"The recession lasted eight months, and was the mildest in the modern era, showing a -0.3% decline in GDP decline, peak to trough"

Stock market dropped 40%. Poster I responded to said Bush came into a good economy. Mild recession is not a good economy. I never compared it to 2008/2009.

"And the Wall Street Journal is worried about Obama's second term,"

This was the opinion section and the thrust of the piece was about Obama's legacy. The premise was that the economy has decided presidential legacies and for Obama to be compared to the winners, he will need to have a very good run the next 4 years.
