    Only if you believe the biggest attack on the U.S. soil allowed for an accurate comparison. The Obama economic policies have made the recovery we have today the worse in modern history and the recession he claimed he inherited wasn't as bad as the recession Reagan had and Reagan showed the leadership that Obama lacks. You never heard Reagan talking about taxing one class over another but instead promoted the greatness of America. Obama doesn't have a clue nor do his supporters.

    I am sure those 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans are very impressed by your percentage change.Is that liberal compassion in your world? Is it true that Obama is the second worst President in U.S. History in your world?

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Does it make sense to you that there were 132 million employed in your report and 138 in the report I listed. Don't you think 130 million sounds low?

    Only if you think the killing of 3000 Americans didn't affect the economy and employment/unemployment. You seem so desparate to get a win for Obama that you don't even know what numbers you posted.

    Wow, we have to go back to Carter and in doing so you are making Obama look worse than the worst President in modern history. Seems like you have a problem with net and gross. Get someone to explain them to you.

    Only a nut would claim Reagan's recession was worse. The two leading indicators of the economy are GDP and unemployment and both were far worse during Bush's Great Recession.

    GDP:
    Q2-1981: 5,952.7
    Q4-1982: 5,866.0
    Reagan: -1.5% growth

    Q4-2007: 13,326.0
    Q2-2009: 12,641.3
    Bush: -5.1% growth


    http://www.bea.gov/national/xls/gdplev.xls

    Unemployment:
    06/1981: 8,098,000
    11/1982: 11,938,000
    Reagan: 3,840,000 additional unemployed (A 47% increase)

    12/2007: 8,989,000
    06/2009: 16,903,000
    Bush: 7,914,000 additional unemployed (An 88% increase)
