    That leaves the unemployment rate well above 9% - even using the Fed's numbers - FAR worse then when Obama took over.
    Well, no, it doesn't. Because the other half includes those who chose school over work and those who chose (or sometime had no choice) disability over work.

    It still leaves you with no evidence and nothing but guesstimates. Same as everyone else discussing this.

    If Obama's record is as bad as you think, what does that say for how people feel about Republicans' ability to manage the economy?

Not one Democrat supported and voted for GSE reform.

    Obama's "Recovery" is one of the worst on record. It's pathetic.

    Reagan's recovery saw GDP Growth as high as 9% with a million jobs created in one month. You're waving the pom poms when the country creates 88K in one month. It's laughable. You've just been conditioned as a Democrat to accept sub par Economic Growth apparently. Psychologically you've been conditioned to have low expectations.

    What the country is going through right now is not an economic recovery. Not even close. Obama's Economic Policies are a joke.
    Democrats could have said whatever they wanted. And they did. That shouldn't have prevented Republicans from passing much needed oversight of the GSEs which would have prevented the meltdown. And btw, as has been proven, Democrats did not block any legislation in the Senate.

    As far as the economy when Reagan was president -- it wasn't broken like the economy Bush handed Obama. Reagan had tools at his disposal to combat a weak ecomony which were not available to Obama.

    The U-3 is 9% if you employ U-5 methodology.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You're assuming a large majority of people voted for Obama because they wanted a job. 50 million on Food Stamps and growing. Disability rolls growing and now running in the red

    It was worse actually. Bush didn't hand Obama a broken Economy either. Obama ran for President when the Economy crashed because of policies he supported. If Obama wasn't up for the job (and judging by how pathetically his policies have failed he obviously was not) he should have pulled out of the Presidential race. Obama even sued banks to pressure them to give loans to low income minorities when he was a lawyer for ACORN. Lastly, Democrats blocked GSE reform that could have prevented the crisis. They shoulder the majority of the blame.

    His logic is flawed two-fold. One is, he has to guess how many people were forced to leave the workforce as opposed to leaving on their own volition. No one can guess what the unemployment rate really is.

    And secondly, he applied that theory only to Obama and not to Bush. Apply that same equation to Bush and we find that Bush left Obama with a U3 rate at 10%. So the unemployment rate is still lower than what Obama started with.

    But give them credit. They are always looking for new ways to make the economy worse than it really is.

    Thats changing as we speak.

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    Obama's approval numbers are back below 50 and trending down. Obama's re-election means he now owns economic policy. He cannot continue to blame Bush. His polling numbers will now, more realistically, reflect that.

    No, I'm reporting to you what the polls say. They indicate that more people trust Obama with the economy than they do Republicans. I don't for a moment purport why.

    The hell he didn' hand Obama a broken economy. All the tools Reagan had at his disposal to help the economy (70% tax rates, 20% interest rates, double digit inflation); Obama had none of those to work with. Taxes were already low, interest rates couldn't go lower, inflation couldn't go lower. So while Carter gave Reagan an unemployment rate of 7.5% with tools to bring it down, Bush handed Obama an unemployment rate of 7.8% with a broken economy which had no such tools to fight it.

    Bull****. They blocked nothing. I posted the bill on this thread the other night which showed the bills were not filibustered or block by Democrats. Stop making stuff up. You can't blame the minority party because the majority party didn't do its job.
