But what about him saying they need to be raised during Obama's presidency but now says that same policy is harmful
Because he wants to get the same treatment. Obama got dealt a winning hand, and looked good in the process. That same good fortune Obama got also has the potential to make him look bad, and he knows it. Everyone knows it. Giving Obama credit for the stock market is ridiculous. All he did was pump our money into it and be around while interest rates were historically low. He bailed out GM and didn't even insist they make the cars here. Think about that. Mexico didn't bail them out, American tax payers did.
