The Obama Depression.

Just making stuff up and posting it doesn't make it true. The recession/depression began in December 2007. See and any US newspaper. Obama wasn't president until 15 months later. Bush was president in the years leading up to the onset of the recession/depression as well as the 15 months after its onset.

Do you have a problem with reality?

Just curious:

Do you agree that the recession of 2000-2003 was Clinton's recession?

And that the economic upturn of 1992-1995 (my guess of when the absurd- tech-stock bubble actually began) belonged to the elder Bush?

In both cases, the people identified were President when the periods identified began. So by the standard you identify in this post, credit/blame should be assigned as I've described.
