Update; October 10, 2013 - Well, so far Barack is doing just fine. The $7,949 when he took office has grown by 90% to 15,126. Since he's been in office less than five years, that's a staggering $1,435 increase per year, better than any other presidency in this survey. And all of this in spite of the fact that he has to deal with a majority in the House who refuse to work with him.
No wonder the American people love him so much!
