I have been voting since 1981 and have often wondered ‘what are the annual stats for each US President. The data speaks the Truth. In the spread sheet below I have tracked, in columns, the annual US debt, Unemployment, Welfare, Trade Deficit, Inflation, Number of Federal Government Employees, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Cost of New Regulations as data points for each year. Each cell was then graded based on its change from the previous year and a conclusion has been drawn from the evidence or reasoning to grade the overall economic health for the presidential year.
Federal Government Report Card.
If you want to make more money than you did in 2009 maybe you should think about voting for Tea Party Congressional candidate in the upcoming midterm election and not someone who has bombed the US economy into a stall as Mr. O’Bama (and his Bamanomics).
Inference – When a Super Majority for the Democrats controls Washington, at least during my voting years, the results is a grade of C- or F for the health of the US economy!
Each annual data point was graded green/clear/yellow/red. ‘Green’ for a substantial positive change over the previous year; ‘Clear’ for no significant change in either direction over the previous year; ‘Yellow’ for negative change over the previous year, and ‘Red’ for substantial negative change over the previous year.
Overall Year Grade
1) If a President has two or more ‘Green’ cells, one or less ‘Yellow’ cells, and NO ‘Red’ cells in a given year the Presidential year is marked as ‘Green’.
2) If a President has two or more ‘Yellow’ cells, one or less ‘Red’ cells, and NO ‘Green’ cells in a given year the Presidential year is marked as ‘Yellow’.
3) If a President has two or more red cells in a given year the Presidential year is marked as ‘Red’.
4) Otherwise left ‘Clear’
A – At least two ‘Green’ , <=1 yellow, and remainder Clear, no ‘Red’
B- At least one more ‘Green’ than ‘Reds’
C – All Clear, or Equal number of ‘Green’ and ‘Red’/’Yellow’
D – One ‘Red’ and at least two ‘Yellow’ and no ‘Green’
F – At least two ‘Red’ not canceled by ‘Green’
