President Obama walked offstage, and the press applauded him, as if he were some kind of extraordinarily successful, accomplished president. But he failed on both the economy and foreign relations. What else is there?
From the Washington Examiner:
Economic growth slowed to end 2016, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Friday, but still remained stronger than earlier in the year.
Adjusted for inflation, U.S. gross domestic product grew at a 1.9 percent annual rate to end the fourth quarter, the bureau reported, below economists’ expectations and down from a robust 3.5 percent clip the quarter. The bureau adjusts GDP growth rates to account for seasonal variations.
For the year, GDP grew at 1.6 percent, the slowest rate since 2011.
