Consistent job creation, rising stock market, brought inbred low-rent rednecks out of their AOL cocoons.

Oh wait, the latter actually is a mess. But at least we all get to see who is part of the internal rot of America. They are the reason America is falling behind in education and why we need to import skilled labor from other countries.

So the natural thing to do given ^^^ was take on even more public spending with Obamacare, without addressing any of the underlying reasons for the extremely rapid growth of healthcare costs.

I think we have a much more extreme case of asset ownership and income growth for the 1% than before he took office.

All the same challenges in Iraq and Afghanistan.

New, worse challenges in Syria.

A mismanaged relationship with Russia that led to our current clustercuss.

And the pending end of a business cycle and bull market. BTW, that's not Obama's fault (well, except for the artificially low interest rates), it is just a timing thing, which Trump inherits.

And - the return of winter to California.

Of all of this (most of which I disagree with), how would you have suggested Obama unilaterally raise the Fed Rate?

The President can't unilaterally raise the Fed Rate (which I'm guessing you know), but he could have made a personnel change when Bernanke's first term ended.
