    Ok, I got ya...So let me revise...What policies did the Senate in those three months enact that lead to that recession then?

    Which is a great example of why I have a problem accepting the numbers coming out of DC establishments today. If it takes a net of 150K jobs to hold the number even, then how did the number not go up if none were had in Aug?

    I would say that they didn't pull us out of anything. I believe we are still in a recession/depression.

    You can believe anything you want, but we aren't in a recession by accepted definitions.

    I don't care what supposed definitions you are going by, these are different times than at any time in the past. Take a look around you, people are hurting in this country. So go tell them that things are better.

    Why are you limiting this to some arbitrary 3 month period? You do know that by March, 2001, the Senate was controlled by Republicans for 6 years and 2 months, don't you?

    What I don't understand is why you divert from the Obama record and go back to Clinton and Bush? The Obama record is what it is and you just cannot accept that always blaming someone else 2 1/2 years after Obama taking office.

    Oh, I get it, it was the Congress that caused the recession in March 2001 but it was Bush that caused the 2007-2009 recession with the Democrat controlled Congress having zero affect? Thanks for clearing that up

    No one disputes that the economy is doing poorly, but it's not illuminating to misuse words that have specific, technical meanings. The generally accepted definition of recession is two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth.
