    recently was that the infamous Romer chart, showing unemployement topping out around 8% or so, WAS very well done based on the models created vis a vis economic stats at the time.

    What nobody knew was that the economy was contracting at around a 9% pace, rather than a 3 % or so pace at the nadir.

    Everything Obama did early on was 'correct'; it was just a very tough gig, as you note.

    From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.
