    I think the point you're missing is that you picked a date that's about five months prior to the equivalent of today's date. Bush got a brief bump from the Iraq invasion, which is reflected in the date you (cherry) picked.

    How are conservatives a threat to the well being of the nation when they voted against a bill that was supposed to create jobs, but has not worked in the past, is not working now, and will not work in the future.

    According to economists, and the CBO, the stimulus did work. It was just too small.

    There are probably just as many economists that disagree.

    OH CRAP, you're right it IS closer to 55%. Now what was your boy's again? 38% or so. Even with my mistake the point is the same. YOU wanted to compare Bush's to BHO's insinuating them to be close...but they are not.

    Maybe I'm too simple minded but when did the unemployment rate go down? From what to what? And that cost HOW MUCH? Well if 5% is considered 'full employment' and we have to spend at a rate/job ANYTHING in the ballpark of the last stimulus to get there our debt will increase another $7t dollars. Just WHO are we going to borrow that from? THE RICH who have a collective annual income of $2t???
