    I guess by his definition that would be correct.
    Although if we were to compare the success of these dictatorships I thinks it pretty apparent which ones would comparable to places like Zimbabwe, and which ones represent a thriving and growing economic success.

    If you think the premise was accepted me as serious.....you go ahead and find the stats to prove your claim.

    That should keep you busy.

    True to some extent. How about the 1.8 million college graduates in May. Where are those kids in the statistics you quoted?

    This "trend" started long before Obama and is always exacerbated by the recessions that a parade of Republican administrations have given us. Republicans love recessions for that reason, it helps in their war against the middle class. The sooner we catch on the sooner we can have a real recovery. If you look closely at the chart you can see that the ONLY time the 2 lines are not converging is during the Clinton Administration.

    Question to all on this site:

    Is anyone on this site a) so hateful of the other party or b) not bright to the extent that he or she thinks either party relishes recessions???

    The US economy added 162,000 new jobs in July.
    So...

    Jobs increased by 66% of the population increase for July.

    Whoop-t-do...

    You know that data speaks for itself. Either the Republicans like recessions or they are so pitifully poor at governing that they simply can't avoid having them. Over ansd over, deeper and deeper. No it is not porn but the GOP's record on recessions. Why don't you embrace recessions as "needed" to balance excess like some here have?
    You can't run from history....

    What is it about liberalism that creates this kind of loyalty and lack of economic and civics understanding? What has this Administration or Democrats in general done that makes good people like you defend the indefensible. The first time the Republicans Controlled the Congress in modern history was 1994 when they swept into power after Clinton raised taxes and proposed national healthcare. Your charts don't show who controlled Congress or what the economic conditions were at the time.

    Liberals have to love people like you carrying their water and looking foolish
