    I'm not the one who shifted topic to what GWB will be remembered for. BHO's economic performance is a failure.

    What I find interesting is the following:

    1) Republicans want smaller government (so small you can drown it in a bathtub)

    2) The sequester starts

    3) Fewer jobs are added last month because the sequester is forcing layoffs in government.

    4) Now Republicans are pissed that the government is shrinking?

    5) So I guess, for all their talk about smaller government, Republicans really DO like big government.

    Not big on exactitude are you?


    But of course, this is the guy that says the official unemployment rate the day Obama took office was 7.8%...even though it was 7.3%.

    WTF?? I thought you're ignoring me? When do you keep your word?

    Your troubles with commitment aside, even backdating when the president starts by a month, as you do for some reason, according to your numbers, the unemployment rate when Bush left office (actually, 3 weeks before he left office), the unemployment rate was 9.3%

    3.9% to to 9.3% = a 138% increase.

    Worse than any president since Herbert Hoover.

    Pointless invective. If you're out of ammunition you can just withdraw.

    Yes. And Reagan achieved Cold War victory, the most important accomplishment since 1945. Unlike Clinton.
