    That didn't answer ****. Look, if you are going to compare Reagan's policies and his recession to Obama's policies and our recession, then you need to show some correlation. In what ways were they similar? In what ways did Reagan implement policies that positively affected the economy? In what ways would those policies have affected this economy? Why does the time Reagan took to curb unemployment positive for you, but when it took the same under Obama it is spin?

    Your fixation on Reagan and Bush is interesting but won't divert from the Obama record

    Obama economic results in 2011,
    .4% GDP and 1.3% GDP growth in 2011(bea.gov)
    25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011(bls.gov)
    2.6 million fewer jobs(bls.gov)
    4.2 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years(U.S. Treasury Site)
    Downgrade of the U.S. credit rating(S&P)
    Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.97 (The United States Misery Index By Year)
    38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings(Gallup)

Reagan economic policy wasn't passed until the fourth qtr of 1981 so of course he is responsible for everything prior to that right? That seems to be liberal logic. I know this is hard for you to understand but the recession ended in November 1982 which is the first quarter of fiscal year 1983. Hard for a liberal to understand so take notes
    You left out the fact that Reagan had to get his economic policy passed in a Democratically held Congress. BHO had the benefit of a Congress that was held by his party, and a filibuster-proof Senate until Ted passed.

    The correlation is in the growth in jobs during the Reagan administration and the reduction of jobs in the Obama Administration for the same period of time. Leadership, leadership, leadership!! Obama doesn't even know how to spell the word.

    Exactly, thus the Obama policies were passed as you pointed out I believe in February 2009 whereas Reagan didn't get his policies passed until August 1981 which is the final quarter of fiscal year 1981 something liberals don't understand. Reagan had zero impact on fiscal year 1981 whereas Obama had half of fiscal year 2009 to implement his policies which his Administration would keep unemployment from exceeding 8%

    This is like talking with a child. Can I assume you have no idea then? I don't know any other conclusion to draw from someone who says, "If this guy had done what that guy did the economy would be fine right now", and then asked what that is you can't even provide a straight answer. Do 30 minutes of research and come back with a canned response, and then I'll dismantle it when I get home, just like I do with all of your other rhetoric.

    If it was filibuster proof, then why did he get filibustered on multiple occasions? Here is a google search of "Obama Filibuster 2009". Also, what policies are you referring to that Reagan passed that aided the economy that Obama did not?

    You are the one always bringing up Reagan. I'm just looking into the myth making surrounding the man.

    I thought they did implement a policy. Spend 1 trillion dollars and ram health care down our throats. I just don't think the policy worked.

    Why? Because he couldn't sell his own party and had to have some democrats support the Republicans. When did Reagan or Bush have the overwhelming numbers that Obama had?

    What amazes me is that you seem too support the Obama record yet ignore the costs to generate that record
