    So not only has Obama done a better job with unemployment than Bush had, but he's done so while starting with an economy that was crumbling to pieces when he became president. Bush inherited a much healthier economy and still his average rose more than Obama's.

    Nope, no bad faith at all. I pointed out how you responded to a post of mine where I was discussing gold -- and then re-posted it to show that to you after you denied responding to a post of mine where I was discussing gold.

    I had to correct my post. GWB's average was even lower: 5.3%. You keep right on with your Orwellian argument that average unemployment of 8.9% is better than average unemployment of 5.3%. Arthur Koestler wrote a book entitled Darkness at Noon. I think you would like it.

    You did not point out that it was a post of yours. I inferred that it was a post from someone else and searched my past posts.

    I suppose that analogy leaves Mitt Romney having to buy a ticket to watch an NFL game because the fans booted him out in the cold. :shrug:

    I suppose it does. It also leaves him with no responsibility for the ongoing failure that is the BHO Presidency. If Romney had been elected, the turnaround would be under way.

    I don't know why you're so eager to make a fool of yourself, but hey, I don't mind helping you out.

    So ... I did not point out you responded to a post of mine, huh?

    ... then how do you explain my name attached (circled in red for your convenience) to the post you claim I didn't identify as mine??

    Umm, that's still 1.1 points higher than when he stared. Same as Obama. Only Bush inherited a much healthier economythan the one he dumped on Obama.

    That's quite demented logic on your part since I never said 8.9% is better than 5.3%. What I actually said, although it's now apparent you weren't paying attention, was that an averge of 1.1 point higher than when Obama started is better than the 1.3 points (your original claim) it was higher under Bush.

    Do you get it now? I wasn't comparing the unemployment rate -- I was comparing the effect on the unemployment rate based on what each president inherited from their respective predecessors.
