That would be the BLS is lying, they publish the numbers.
The GDP growth rate for the 4th quarter of 2008 was -6.1%.

You can make it smaller if you average in all of 2008.
Heck, you can make it positive if you average in 2005-2008.

But that isn't what was happening at the moment Obama took office, the economy was in free fall.

That's where Obama started.
So if growth was running at 1.5% when he left office, it's 7.6% higher than when he took office.

The economy bottomed out before Obama took office, the worse was over and it was improving to the point that it started to grow in June 2009, marking the end of the recession a few months after Obama took office.

All he had to do was stay out of the way of recovery, which he refused to do, which tamped down recovery.

The major force that slowed down the recovery was the obstructionist Republican Congress, who suddenly saw the deficit as the number one issue.
The same people who totally ignored the deficit, while blowing it up with tax cuts.
