    Again... that's another example of your faulty assessment.

    Simple.. your statistic does not include where wages started.

    Wages fell because of the recession. Wages coming back from that does not mean that there has been superior growth or that things are much better for people than previous times.

    It's true that, in seeking to properly interpret all the macroeconomic data collected over recent years, we need to account for the wild volatility we've experienced in many measures — employment, GDP, federal outlays and receipts, housing stats, etc. Even those that are fairly stable, such as inflation, have been significantly impacted by the wild ride we've been on.

    So I'll agree that efforts to draw lines between 43 and the Negro and to compare their relative performance to that of other presidents is gonna be complex. But I also think an honest and informed discussion is possible.

    The US economy is anything but a controlled environment that allows for precise scientific analysis, but I'm confident that I can go over this stuff a lot more effectively with someone like you, jaeger, than I can with … people … like the ConMan or AE or many others on the Right here.

    Unfortunately I can't say the same of you because of your continued inappropriate behavior.

    Here let's start over....

    I said:

    If by spending problem you mean the government is spending too little. I agree.

    Or if by spending problem you mean the private sector is going too far into debt, again we agree.

    If you mean the government is spending too much, I'd disagree and I'd politely ask where you think I went wrong in my post.

    -Cheers.
    And your reply is?

    Already stated. I replied to your original post.

    You replied with the above.

    I then pointed out where you made mistakes.

    you came up with a BS answer that "I didn't include that because of the content restraints".

    You spouted an ideology. You got caught at it.. and that's that.

    Whenever you wish to stop obfuscating and want to discuss, let me know.
