Credit where it's due — you can't say Obama's policies haven't worked. Every initiative he has pushed has two common objectives: 1) increase the size and power of government and 2) keep unemployment numbers high to increase dependence on government. This chart from Business Insider shows how he's doing on the unemployment front:
Killing jobs doesn't do any good if the free market allows people to find new jobs. But by sucking all the money out of the economy with wildly excessive frivolous spending, terrifying businesses with socialist power grabs like ObamaCare, and strangling economic activity with pernicious regulations, employment can be kept down to Great Depression levels, guaranteeing a constituency for socialism.
