    I seem to remember the recession ending in June 2009 and it is August 2013 and we still have 22 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers. Apparently that is the liberal leadership that excites people like you.

    Would be happy to compare Reagan results to Obama's for with Reagan you will see leadership whereas with Obama you get rhetoric, great vacations, and a lot of golf because the results sure don't warrant support.

    I'm no fan of Obama's, but comparing numbers from 2005 to 2011 without indicating what happened in between seems disengenuous. For all we know, the numbers could have gone from 2.4 million to 3.2 million all before Obama took office, or perhaps were even higher than 3.2 million before Obama took office and have fallen since. I don't think Obama's handling of the economy and the debt/deficits has been anything to champion, but I don't think your country's been in a recession since the first months of his first term.

    re: Report shows how recession hit families [W:391, 502]

    Now lets take a look at this no doubt Reagan had a crappy economy when he took office, but conservatives still deny the fact that he tripled the debt to get the U.S. out of it. Now Bush 1 was the best of the bunch and in all honesty wasnt that bad, Bush 2 do we really need to get into the corporate welfare he provided and the mountain of debt he added that caused a great deal of the problems. I think conservatives are a very funny bunch they only care about spending when the other guy is doing it not when the their guy is doing it. Our problems can be tracded way back to Reagan he wasnt innocent in this.

    So Reagans tripling the debt was no problem 2 trillion in the 80's would be 10 trillion with inflation today. Plus he had a house that actuall gave a crap about the nation.

    Let's see, Reagan took office with a 900 billion dollar debt and left it at 2.6 trillion dollars and in doing so created 17 million jobs. Obama took office with a 10.6 trillion dollar debt that today is almost 17 trillion dollars and we have 2 million fewer jobs than we had when the recession began, 177000 fewer unemployed than when he took office, and a labor force that hasn't kept up with population growth. Do you people really want to divert to Reagan rather than accept what most of us know, Obama is an empty suit and is making Carter look good.
