Dispute this :
This country has gone downhill economically since he was elected
-Unemployment roughly doubled in about two years ('07-'09). When he was sworn in, it was at roughly 8% and climbing fast. That stabilized in a bit over six months and started to decline reaching where it was then. I'd say unemployment at least leveling off after a decline is better than the rapid incline it was on. This is an economic improvement from where it was.
-Gross Domestic Production hit a low of about $13.9T at end of Q1 '09. Q3 '12 was $15.8T. This too is an economic improvement from where it was.
Both ISM Manufacturing and PMI Composite indexes were at roughly 35 in '09 and currently sit at 51.7 (and has been as high as 60). FYI, above 50 generally means manufacturing is expanding.
-Housing prices are no longer in a freefall over all, stabilizing mostly and even improving in some areas.
- January 20th, 2009, the stock market was at the following points: Dow/7950, Nasdaq/1440 and S&P 805. Today? Dow is 12,985. Nasdaq is 2992. S&P is 1409. These are all improvements.
-Even the abstract items like Consumer Confidence has seen an increase.
Now. I'm making no statement of causation, only correlation. You asked people to dispute that the country has gone downhill economically over the last four years which couldn't be further from the truth. By and large, it has stabilized and/or improved. And hopefully it will continue to do so. If you don't like him, that's fine. I'm kind of "meh" on him myself. But to do so based on incorrect information is simply choosing to ignorant.
