    Amazing!! I coulda sworn in another thread you stated that reagan inherited carters economy.

    What I understand is that Obama had little or nothing to do with the creation of the Great Recession. Nor, for that matter, did the Congress of '07-'08. The recession was a result of absurd housing contracts that were largely formed between 2002 and 2006.

    The economy was improving, and it's also improving now.

    I think you forgot Liberal Rule #1.......republicans are responsible for 100% of what happens to the Country, from the day they are inaugurated to the day they leave office........liberal presidents inherit all of the problems during their term and they aren't accountable for anything, unless it's a good thing that happens.

    Current estimates are 4 million new retirees per year, and the US births/year have been about 4 million a year for the last 15 years.

    revisionist history is what you are good at, all in an attempt to divert from the Obama record which will be on the ballot in 2012. The housing contracts go back much further than 2002 but your biased, partisan position won't allow you to accept that. What you want to ignore is we are three years into the Obama Administration and if any Republican had generated these numbers you would be going ballistic

    Well, I guess we can all play this game, right? The average misery index under Reagan was 12.19. Under Obama? 10.72. Thus, according to your logic, Obama is the better president.

    And, btw, it is falling -- not rising.
