Which gets back to the purpose of this thread.
Both Reagan and Obama accomplished larg scale policy changes. Reagan and his supporters want him to be held accountable for his record, but Obama and Obama supporters don't want

It's completely valid to point out the difficult economy they inherited. But it isn't valid to promote and pass policies designed to repair this, then insist you can't be accountable for the result.
The result is clear: one set of policies resulted in a vastly different outcome than the other.
