    You mean none of those things happened prior to 29 years ago?

    Nope, that's not what I said or what I mean.

    This is what you said as proof that trickle down doesn't work. Obviously you've forgotten it already.

    The clear implication is that prior to 29 years ago (i.e before trickle down economics) there were no bubbles or recessions or crumbling infrastructure. If you didn't mean what was clearly implied, then perhaps you'd like to clarify yourself a tad.

    No thanks, I don't feel like getting into another "Reagan ****ed us up" VS "No he didn't" argument. Which is what it would end up being.

    Okay, so you can't really support what you said. Thanks.

    Pretty well actually, far far lower unemployment under GHWB than under the Messiah aka the worst POTUS since at least Carter.

    You do realize the problems started under Bush. You seem to be making a causal relationship error in your thinking.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So you don't know that the economic situation under the Shrub was nothing but a bubble? You don't know that wages were flat or declining and that we had the slowest economic growth under him since...

    The number of jobs in the nation increased by about 2 percent during Bush's tenure, the most tepid growth over any eight-year span since data collection began seven decades ago. Gross domestic product, a broad measure of economic output, grew at the slowest pace for a period of that length since the Truman administration. And Americans' incomes grew more slowly than in any presidency since the 1960s, other than that of Bush's father.

    Bush and his aides are quick to point out that they oversaw 52 straight months of job growth in the middle of this decade, and that the economy expanded at a steady clip from 2003 to 2007. But economists, including some former advisers to Bush, say it increasingly looks as if the nation's economic expansion was driven to a large degree by the interrelated booms in the housing market, consumer spending and financial markets. Those booms, which the Bush administration encouraged with the idea of an "ownership society," have proved unsustainable.
