Then (WWII) and Now (Obama)

During the 3 1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the USA produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns and 2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany while freeing millions from tyranny and imprisonment.

It's worth noting that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.
