    And to highlight your hypocrisy, you cry hourly how Obama doesn't deserve another 4 years and point to underemployment being up 1 million under Obama as one of the reasons -- yet in October in 2004, at the time you voted to give Bush 4 more years, underemployment swelled by 4 million.

    Cry louder Con! America doesn't hear you.
    Why would anyone who lives in this country agree with what Obama is doing? Do you believe it is your responsibility to pay for my healthcare or to be forced into giving more of your money to the govt. to "help" others when you can do it yourself better?

    You have this obsession with Bush and what he did yet totally ignore the actual data which is much, much better than Obama's in many areas. Further Bush didn't promote massive expansion of the govt. preferring instead to let the private sector work. I am not happy with what Bush did his last four years but not enough to ever vote for Obama over Bush. I saw Obama for what he truly is, you ignore it.

    As for under employment, too bad Obama doesn't have 4 million under employed nor does he have a growing labor force. When I voted for Bush the U-6 was 9.4 not 15.2%. your selective use of numbers appeals to the ignorant Obama supporter not those who know what is really going on.

    Likely to be worse than Obama? Hardly and the results show we got someone worse than Bush with that argument.

    That is more true than you realize for as Matthews said "his smile is worth 10% in the general election." Doubt that the 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans are smiling nor are the people going to smile when they see the effects of the debt service on the budget for the additional 5.7 trillion he will add to the debt by the end of his first term. Imagine what that debt service is going to be with higher interest rates?

    I don't agree with you there. But, yes, we can do worse, and the GOP field shows that. There is a chnace for you here, but you can't just throw up anyone. Kerry made that clear.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I would take Romney in a heartbeat over Obama and I am a Conservative knowing that Romney isn't my kind of conservative but his business background does it for m. Would have trouble voting for Santorum and Gingrich but would do it because of Obama

    Just noting that it's logical to compare Obama's situation with FDR inheriting the depression from Hoover, but now that Obama's at the end of his term, it's interesting to see how that turned out in 1936, when the public were judging FDR's job in fixing it, and whether the public assigned blame to FDR for the rate of progress.

    You have to look at where each started and where they ended though.

    Further Bush didn't promote massive expansion of the govt. preferring instead to let the private sector work.
    Sure.

    Sure.
    I have looked at where we started and see the numbers worse today than when he started showing that maybe we don't need Obama or maybe any other President if this is the best the Executive Branch can do. He made things worse and this is the worst recovery since the Great Depression all because of liberalism and lack of understanding as to how our private sector economy works. What really is interesting is how people like you point to how bad things were ignoring that things aren't a lot better today when you factor in the discouraged workers and people dropping out of the labor force. continue to buy the Obama rhetoric but the question is why?

    Which numbers?

    EDIT:

    Here's an interesting comparison of total spending under Bush vs. Obama.

    http://www.njdc.org/blog/post/Newspending072511

    It shows that in two terms, spending went up alot more than twice what spending has been in Obama's one term.

    Employment, unemployment, labor force, misery index, debt and then there is crony capitalism, green energy failures, take over of GM/Chrysler then selling Chysler to Italy, number below poverty level, and Obamacare. Then outside the numbers is the worse GDP growth in 2011 than 2011
