    donc;1059333149]So sad. Another lamea** attempt at dishonesty on conservative’s part. CES0000000001=2001=132469 2002= 130591
    Lame attempt? LOL, facts always get in the way of your rhetoric. Here is the GDP amount and % change over the last 10 years. Refute the facts and notice the Republican Congress 2003-2006

    2001 10286.20 3.36%
    2002 10642.30 3.46%
    2003 11142.10 4.70%
    2004 11867.80 6.51%
    2005 12638.40 6.49%
    2006 13398.90 6.02%
    2007 14077.60 5.07%
    2008 14441.40 2.58%
    2009 14256.30 -1.28%
    2010 14657.8 2.82%


    So that’s how it’s done eh? We bomb a country into the Stone Age…whoops, they were already there.

    Well, that didn’t work, I guess we’d better gin up an attack on Iraq and say the oil will pay for it. Heh, heh, heh.
    Here we go again, we went into Iraq for oil and to make Bush's oil buddies rich. What is the excuse for high oil prices now?


    And Obama inherited the mother of all recessions…the bush recession.
    The mother of all recessions exists when you don't get your latest IPhone. The 81 recession was much worse than this one, the difference is the economic policies that got us out of it vs. the leftwing agenda of Obama's. Obama took advantage of a crisis to implement his leftwing agenda but like a good little cult follower you buy the rhetoric and defend it to the hilt.

    Kinda looks like we’ll maybe be seeing Sara, or Huck, or Maybe Michelle, or whatever the RNC dredges up in about two and a half years then.
    No President has even been re-elected with unemployment over 8% and if the numbers stay where they are it won't matter who the Republicans run. Obama record, 8.9% unemployment, 2 million fewer jobs today than when he took office, 3.5 trillion added to the debt, and 2.8% GDP growth.

    No 9/11 didn’t cost that many jobs, its the combination of the two-wars exacerbated, by the ill advised tax cuts during said wars.The rest your contorting yourself yet again pulling that stuff out.
    Not sure how old you are but you should know better

    You ahve to actually prove that and not just be willing to accept any conspiracy nonsense that is handed to you.

    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.

    You will have quality growth rates when there is target inflation, massive government spending, loose monetary policy, and low taxes. However, the moral hazard risks associated with such economic policy can be exacerbated under a deregulatory environment.

    Oh wait, recent events have shown such policies to be unsustainable.

    No President has even been re-elected with unemployment over 8% and if the numbers stay where they are it won't matter who the Republicans run.
    What was unemployment in 1937?

    Obama record, 8.9% unemployment, 2 million fewer jobs today than when he took office, 3.5 trillion added to the debt, and 2.8% GDP growth.
    Care to give us your over/under call on the unemployment rate in November 2012 (< or > 7%)?
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Around 8.5% or higher

    As for the GDP, it is what it is and posted on bea.gov.

    Unemployment from 1920 to 1940 which is prior to the creation of the Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Year Rate
    1920 5.2 %
    1928 4.2
    1930 8.7
    1932 23.6
    1934 21.7
    1936 16.9
    1938 19.0

    I was referring to this quote of yours:

    The UE in 1936-'37 was around 17%, and FDR won easily.

    Forgot, I need to be specific with you and others looking for a gotcha moment, I was talking about using BLS data and BLS didn't exist then.
