I really do question the intelligence of democrats and their political think tanks that determine what their politicians say. So many times they say things that can be shot down, because they dont research their subject. Part of is stems from the fact they lie so much, all you have to do is go back in time a bit, and there they are saying just of opposite of what they are saying now. What is so funny about this is the fact that democrats claim to be so much more educated and have great knowledge.

An example of what I am saying is Harris was just on the news giving Trump hell for high unemployment during this pandemic. What she didnt know, or the think tank that gave her the subject is the fact that right now during this pandemic Trump's unemployment is the SAME as Obama's best years.

Maybe YOU should take your own advice and do a little research on the subject of unemployment before you make a statement like " is the fact that right now during this pandemic Trump's unemployment is the SAME as Obama's best years.
It is 8.4 % today and when Obama left office it was like4.6%
so it is NOT the same as it was in Obama's best years but almost twice that amount
Have a nice day

To be fair, the same as the best years as Obama during his first term. His second term got unemployment pretty low by historic standards.

The difference, of course, is that using the Obama Approach, the economy recovered to about the 8% uemployment level in a little over 3.5 years from the bottom.

Using the Trump Approach, the economy recovered to about the 8% level in a little over 0.5 years.

Another very obvious difference is that the problem(s) addressed by Obama were home grown and the problem addressed by the President are foreign initiated amounting (in outcome) to an attack.

Absolutely disgusting. Obama was dealing with the BUSH JR catastrophy. Like EVERY DEM that gets elected. The Repubs **** our country, give alll our loot to the rich, so that they can laugh and point at Dems having to WORK for their country.

It's outright amazing how uniformed some posts appear to be.

Because questions are illegal in the world of Democrat-Socialists?

No, because it's so ironic to have someone who has demonstrated such limited cerebral ability to question anyone's inelegance.

Why didn't you keep going back to when Obama took over from Bush?
Remember we were in a recession and employment always lags behind in a recession / depression
so it went up to just over 10% in Oct 2009 and when Obama left it was something like 4.6% a drop of over 5% under Obama
Yes the economy was doing a LOT better when Trump took over and did drop about a total of 1% in his first 3 years
again my point was IF you are going to badmouth somebody for not fact checking what they say you should make sure you do the research and fact check what you say and not do the same thing you are complaining that somebody else did
Have a nice day

The ONLY reason Bush had a tough time was because of the democrats that got voted in in 2006. The whole blow up was democrats wanted everyone to own a home, and gave loans to everyone. They couldnt pay, and it crashed the economy.

You maintain a view of the world that is not weighted down by knowledge.

The Big 0 took office in late January, 2009. The first glimmers of response to the crisis were hitting the economy in June, 2009. As economic activity is measured, the Recession ended in June 2009.

The "boot on the throat" policies favored by the Democrat-Socialists, the Unemployment Rate continued to rise through October 2009.

After about 36 months, the Unemployment Rate reduced by a little over 2% to 7.8%- right before the election.

The Unemployment Rate in April, 2020 was over 14%. It's down today by more than 6%.

The difference is that Trump is using a bottom up approach and the Big 0 used a top down approach.

Trump wants to get the government out of the way and let people work. The Big 0 wanted to control and direct the people.

Out of curiosity, how does posting raw statistics quoted exactly from a site posting numbers equate in your mind to badmouthing?
