    I think their position was that they could not reach back in time and undo the subprime mortgages that were formed when Republicans controlled the White House and both houses of Congress.

    There are dozens of youtube videos of Frank claiming that they needed no additional regulation. Surely you have seen them.

    October posted a decline in misery index. Doh!

    Don't take his "facts" for truth because they are wrong most of the time.

    You refuse to listen and understand. Population "growth" means jack**** since it does not ****ing distinguish age wise. So it is a hyperhole argument. How many are over 65? How many are under 15(16)? How many are stay at home moms? How many are births?

    Ummm, I did look at the numbers and he was correct. Read your own graph.

    So why don't we just tell the truth, eh? Reagan inherited a massive recession from Carter. Obama inherited a massive but very different sort of recession from Bush. The economy turned around under Reagan thanks in large part to the fiscal measures taken by Paul Volker. Reagan himself helped to repair the economy by instituting massive stimulus in the form of tax cuts, which unfortunately resulted in massive deficits. He did so with a Democratic Congress that was generally cooperative. Obama is in a much tougher situation insofar as he inherited much higher debt and already low taxes, and he has to deal with a Republican minority that opposes nearly everything he puts forward.

    You continue to swat at gnats without making a cognizant point.

    Bottom line, the unemployment rate dropped because the number of people who gave up looking for work fell off the radar screen. Most of the "increase" in unemployment is likely seasonal employees that will go away in January.

    Did Republicans control both Houses when the CRA was passed during the Carter years? You just cannot get over your Bush Derangement Syndrome that here we are 3 years into the Obama "Hope and Change" Administration and the results are a disaster. Is that why you don't want to address them and continue to want to look backwards?

    You're going to fall down after all that spinning. Slow down and take another sip of kool-aid.
