    And of course the Obama record which is worse than Bush's isn't a direct reflection on his policies? Bush didn't wreck the economy and Bush didn't take office in January 2008 either. I will take the 8 year average for Bush over Obama's three year average or if you want, the last year, 2011 numbers. Just goes to show how brainwashed liberals are.

    How about comparing the last three years of the bush record to the first three of Obamas. Don't you think that would be more realistic than comparing an eight year Presidency to a three year one?

    Nope...If you want apples to apples compare the first three, to the first three...Or better yet, compare the first three of Reagan, to the first three of Obama.

    If you were truly interested in apples to apples, you would be comparing Obama with FDR; since those are the only two presidents to inherit a wrecked economy. Neither Bush nor Reagan took over an economy like the one Obama took over 3 years ago.

    Not true...Carter's economy was probably the closest to what Barry took over. But if you want to compare FDR, the man that turned what should have been a 3 year recession into a full blown 10 year depression, go ahead.

    Ok, so that is it for you? Well, let me just say to the Mods....Stop all threads, to all conservatives, stop opposing the Messiah Obama and get down on your knees...Lord Barry is such a whopping success that there are no abandoned shopping strip malls, no closed business everywhere, no increased roles of food stamps, unemployment roles, disability, discouraged workers, and alike....My god, I had NO idea everything was so damned good.

    Umm, Carter's economy created 10 million jobs in 4 years along with 13.5% growth in GDP. The economy Reagan took over wasn't even in recession. You would have to be insane to compare the economy Obama took over with the economy Reagan took over.

    As far as FDR, the Great Depression was full blown by the time FDR became president and the unemployment rate fell every year under him except for 1 until the depression ended.

    Liberals generally consider Bush to be one of the nations worst presidents, so it is funny to have them compare Obama to Bush. I guess that makes Obama the second worst president in US history. You liberals sure shoot for the moon dont you.

    Compare Obama against all Republican presidents when it comes to increasing/decreasing unemployment for their first 36 months in office ...


    Nixon +2.4 +71%
    Eisenhower +1.1 +38%
    Ford* +2.0 +36%
    Bush +1.5 +36%
    GHW Bush +1.9 +35%
    Reagan +0.5 +7%
    Obama +0.5 +6%
    Kennedy* -1.2 -14%
    Carter -1.2 -16%
    Clinton -1.7 -23%
    Johnson -2.1 -37%
    * = Kennedy was in office 34 months
    * = Ford was in office 29 months
