    Exactly, liberals willingly accept the new normal of high unemployment, high debt, high govt. dependence, low economic growth. To a liberal low standards are the norm not the basis upon which this country was built, self reliance and exceptionalism

    That isn't true at all, if you look at the graph the increases are roughly at the same rate as President Bush.

    You can post those numbers until hell freezes over but the fact remains there are 143 million employed today vs. 146 million when the recession began so the best you can come up with is comparision to when he took office not what he promised to do.. When you increase numbers over the worst numbers that percentage increase is going to be high but not anywhere near what the numbers were when the recession began. That is what good performance would be, not Obama's performance. You see, cost doesn't matter to you or any other liberals.

    146 million? Hell, it wasn't even that high when Bush handed the economy to Obama.

    The fact is that the recession began when Bush was president and YOU don't want to accept the 4 million losses that occurred when he was the president.

    Conservative standards ...

    A Republican president takes over with 4.2% unemployment and leaves us in a massive recession which leads to 10% unemployment.

    The 22nd Amendment should be repealed so that president can serve another 4 years.

    A Democrat president takes over with 7.8% unemployment which rises to 10% due to the recession he inherited and brings the unemployment rate back down to 7.6% ... and HE'S the failure.

    Conservative's stardards...

    When Bush left office, unemployment was higher than it is now. The rate at which debt was accumulating was higher than it is now.

    And you said you would vote for Bush for the 5th time if he could run again.

    Didn't have to be, but that is what good leaders do, take a bad economy and improve on it and the improvement bar is 146 million, not a labor force that lost 500,000 and just got back to where it was when he took office. What did he add 6 trillion to the debt for if that is the best he can do?

    You are right, Obama inherited a recession and after adding 6 plus trillion to the debt we are back where we started when he inherited those terrible numbers over 4 years ago. That is liberalism and its low standards.
