  •  Actually, it did keep going down. (0+ / 0-)

    The worst numbers -- especially long term unemployment and labor force participation -- have ocurred in the Obama administration.

    Come to think of it -- so did the numbers for home foreclosures and inflation on essentials.

    Which calls up the real problem with choosing numbers and where to draw lines.  Who's sitting in the White House when the bills come due may not be the one who banged the card.

    At any rate, the current administration's economic performance can fairly be characterized as abysmal.

      "it did keep going down" when you first said it had nowhere of go but up. ;)

      But I don't want to pull a "gotcha." I think we agree that you can't turn it around instantly.

      Obama did as much as Congress allowed to improve matters.

      •  Nope. A gotcha is a gotcha. (0+ / 0-)

        I'll admit it. At the time, nobody believed things could possibly get worse -- including this President's economic advisors.

        We were all proved wrong.
