Yeah, you're ignoring all the relevant details. Obama never said that. It was simply in a report from some advisers, along with a bunch of qualifiers that you ignore. There was no promise or prediction from Obama.
And whether it was successful or not is not limited whether or not it hit the 8% mark. If it kept it from going to 15%, that would be pretty successful, would it not? Of course, we'll never know, so as you said, you can't really judge it without knowing what would have happened without it.
