    How can someone who contradicts themselves ever be president?

    only if we're talking four figures on the right side of the decimal.

    funny.


    that, of course, being because we spent much of Bush's Presidency in historically low unemployment, climbing rapidly at the end. Obama, of course, won't be held responsible for the climb. he will be held responsible for his utter inability to turn it around.

    Wait until you see Perry debate. The Donald would actually be a better choice. Name recognition counts. Bush had it, Perry doesn't.

    That which is true, you find to be "funny".
    Figures ...conservative..
    The under-lying causes of high unemployment began years ago...A lack of intelligent economic planning...under many administrations. Its the children who play the blame games...blame Carter, blame Reagan, blame Bush, blame Obama.....
    Does anyone know how many years it took for us to recover from the first great depression ?

    Considering how Obama is sucking ass right now in every way, it's hard to imagine how you came to that well considered opinion.

    Bush goes from 5.5% to 6%. (6 - 5.5) / 5.5 = 9.1% increase in unemployment.
    Obama goes from 8.5% to 9%. (9 - 8.5) / 8.5 = 5.9% increase in unemployment.

    These numbers are in theory for this exercise.

    I guess, by this, Bush is almost 3% higher in unemployment figures. Oh wait, it only went up a half percent in both cases. How can this be? Top that off with the difference between 8 years and 2 1/2 years.

    Seriously hay, shut the hell up. You repeatedly regurgitating that statement is insulting to anyone with math skills beyond a fourth grader. Come up with some other factoid that doesn't manipulate percentages and ratios. You're just coming across as ridiculously stupid.

    I dunno, I think Perry has almost as much recognition as Bush did.

    Well, Bush's Father was an ex-president. Wouldn't that be just a little bit more name recognition?
