    DC wasn't a ghost town, but in the previous decade, the first time DC had added population in nearly 50 years, fueled by the nations largest housing boom and a full 35% increase in the federal budget, DC added 200 residents a month.

    From 2009, to 2012 DC added 1000 residents a month, a 5 fold increase. This is due primariliy to DC being the jobs mecca of the nation, and "the" place just out of college folks could still get a decent, albiet federal government related job.

    Obama hasn't made DC, the worst recession since the great depression has made DC.
