    Do you realize you don't have a clue as to what the numbers posted show? Let me help you

    GDP grew 4.5 trillion dollars in 8 years. No other President in history increased GDP over 4 trillion dollars in 8 years let alone 4.5 trillion. That is hardly driving the economy off the cliff.

    GDP was 9.9 trillion when Bush took office.

    This makes the turtle's lists of most inane comments of the week

    the stage was constructed for this under the New Deal and really built up during the Great Society. But for the ND, we wouldn't have the mess we have today

    60 Minutes: Unemployment is really bad | The Right Scoop
    It looks like trending data to me. Each chart has trending toward bad things back to 2008. Are you trying to show that President Obama was handed a faltering economy and is having difficulty correcting it?

    But it also set up the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

    Couldn't agree more. The problem with liberals is none seem capable of doing any research and simply buy rhetoric and then regurgitate it hoping that no one calls them on it. they have been spreading their lies for so long now that it comes as common nature to them. It is time that actual facts are posted to dispel those lies and liberals don't like it.

    You don't have a clue what a real crisis is, Reagan inherited a crisis high inflation, high interest rates, zero interest rates and 7.6% unemployment isn't a crisis.

    The real crisis began on January 21, 2009 with Obama's leftwing agenda that has made things worse. It is indeed a crisis now as the unemployment rate is closer to 17% thanks to the leftwing agenda. Interesting that millions of Americans are fleeing Obama yet you, a proclaimed libertarian, defends him.

    You continue to buy the rhetoric of someone who has yet to tell the truth on any issue. That doesn't help your credibility.

    the welfare socialists don't understand that it was FDR that destroyed the restrictions and boundaries on the federal government by passing crap (affirmed by his lapdog judges) that allowed the Commerce Clause to give congress all sorts of powers that were never intended to be given the federal government.

    Yep, Democrats took control and unemployment started climbing. Could it be that Democrats were more interested in regaining the WH than keeping the country out of recession. How is that trend looking for you today, higher unemployment each month of 2010 vs. 2009. That is after a recession ended.

    You asked for data, I gave you data so is this the best you can do? Interesting how you focus on the trend in 2008 but ignore the trend now after 862 billion stimulus was spent and the recession ended in June 2009.
