Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.
    Here you go:

    And what Obama inherited: economy shedding 700,000+ jobs per month, GDP shrinking at 6+% per year, financial institutions teetering on the edge of collapse, trillion+ deficit.... Nice improvement.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Case in point ... you keep claiming the main thing that determines the economy is the misery index ....

    The misery index was higher during the first few months of 2009 than it was during most of 2004, 2005, and 2006, the years you claim were Bush's best economic years. According to your nonsense, the economy was better in 2009 than it was in the mid 2000's.

    Bush lost 732 thousand to unemployment during January, 2001 ... but employment fell 1.1 million that month. During the 5 month period from Nov. 2008 to Mar. 2009, when Obama's stimulus went into effect, employment fell by 2.6 million. I doubt there has been a five month period that lost that many jobs since the Great Depression.

    Since you want to judge Bush on his performance for a few months why aren't you judging Obama on his 2 1/2 years in office especially the results today vs when he took office? Again sure wish you would have taken a civics class.

    Now isn't that something, today we have 25 million plus unemployed and under employed. Please point out when Bush ever had that high of unemployment or ever had 16.5% unemployment?

    Yes, let's not worry about what is going on today so that we can continue to blame Bush for what is alleged in 2001-2003. Just sweep the corruption today under the rug just like supporters are ignoring the Obama record TODAY

    Apparently a Nobel Prize winner in Economics doesn't think of the Obama results either.
