WWII had some beneficial effects (it forced FDR to stop attacking businesses and start working with them instead, which encouraged investment and expansion), but the natural unemployment rate didn't fall back down to what we would consider "norm" until 1946 - which, not coincidentally, was a year of massive reduction in government expenditures. All that money was released from government coffers to go to work in the private sector and it did.
    Again, the Great Depression ended before WWII, though much of the economy was driven by preparing for the war. It wasn't just unemployment, which is a lagging indicator of the economy, it was GDP, which was 17.1 for 1941.

    What I find interesting .. Is that 2007 Democrats took control of both houses .. and did nothing to stop the slide .. now did they .. I know .. I know .. they had other important things to do ..

    But lets ask the question ... what was the single biggest factor in the collapse ?

    News flash .. Democrats controled both houses from 2006 to 2010 controlled both houses and the white house from 2008 to 2010 .. and still .. control the senate and the white house ..It's time to suck it up .. the majority of Americans are tired of the same old fluff ... and knows who is responsible for the shape of the economy "TODAY" and it's not Bush


    Cool, would you rather we say it all started (the great bush recession) during the term of an unnamed President on December 2007,when the great recession began.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    In a few years we may have a Republican President and you'll be defending him/her every time they go to Camp David or take a break.
    That is 100% how this goes. Criticize when it's not your party, defend when it is. Doesn't matter if you have to switch arguments, just continue the blind support of your side and the blind condemnation of the other.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Because it was true (ie going into Iraw provoked the terrorists), and republicans run from the truth.

    Wow!!

    Just wow!

    No, we have a political system that is in service to the rich and powerful. Both parties are to blame.

    Umm, saying was "Clintons' greatest failings" sounds like a conviction, not an excuse.
