    How did he **** them? Last time I checked, Bush had a lot better economy, with twice the bull**** that Obama has had to deal with.

    You should check something other than Rush Limbaugh and Shaun Hannity.

    Uhmmm the economy went from negative territory into positive territory in a very fastidious manner considering the situation. And jobs stopped losing 700k per mnth.

    There is a lot of things I disagree about how all this went down but turning that around was and is pretty friggen impressive. Especially if you want to toss in the political climate as a factor.

    Again, pick your poison.
    I pick the one who increased unemployment 17% over the one who increased it 86%.

    You just want to ignore that -9% GDP, financial institutions tettering on the brink of insolvency, losing 700k jobs per month......

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Because I'm smart enough to recognize that Obama is doing better than Bush even though Bush inherited an unemployment rate of 4.2% while Obama inherited an unemployment rate of 7.8%, the highest unemployment rate any president inherited from his predecessor since FDR in 1933.

    While you choose to ignore that one little detail, I do not.

    Obama started with high unemployment and a manufacturing base that had been exported ... hence any stimulus would be less effective.

    If you measure devastation ... at the end of Bushes term it was a result of Clinton's policies ... China PNTR Oct 2000.

    I'll take Bush's economy ... just for the job creation from the housing starts.

    In the end these guys had economies that were not comparable ... anymore then they could be compared to Clinton's.

    Decisions can be judged ...
    Umm, it was that very same housing bubble which fueled the economy during the mid-2000's which led to the financial meltdown that occurred in 2008.

    Obama is a republican. He continued wars from Bush ... started up in Libya. Extended "temporary" tax cuts. And has three more trade/job export agreements in the works with pubs. He stymied the NY Attorneys investigation to eliminate criminal punishment. He attacked Medicaid and Medicare ... while maintaining the defense budget. He's not a liberal in my book. If continued republican policy makes democrats feel relevant ... continue supporting his pub policies.

    What separates Obama from the pubs? As Boehner stated ... 98% ... I'll take that to mean 98% republican certified beef.
