    How many Republicans voted for the stimulus when Obama had both houses?

    And that was totally watered down to try and get Snow and some "democrats in name only." It was nearly half tax cuts to try and appease the R's.

    Look at the big increase in spending in the very top graph, then look down at the graph I posted for RK.

    I guess the stimulus didn't do a thing... Funny that's when jobs turned positive for the first time in awhile.

    I hate hearing folks compare the current economy to that of the 70's and 80's. They simply are not comparable are they?

    I can hear the retort coming, bu bu but, gas prices... What are gas prices doing right now? They are volatile as he double L...

    If you wanted to be fair... Come up with a graph that shows thes same amount of time for Bush vs Obama. Show Bush's last 4 years vs Obamas only 4. I think your graph would look a little different.

    I am only posting this to show that no matter which side you are on, you can find economic data and graphs to support your position. We can all drive ourselves silly with pie charts, either for or against.

    The Consumer Price Index does NOT include food and energy. These items were removed in 1997. A better measure of inflation for the individual is the everyday price index. The EPI inflation rate was 8% in 2011.

    I just can't get used to Republicans being "red states" or anything Republican being represented by the color red. The Democrats should be represented by the color red. After all, they're closer to being card-carrying communists (reds) and economically they prefer being in the red than being in the black.

    So, what does this prove except that we were adding some jobs until the crap hit the fan in 2008?

    Looks to me like the Republicans repaired a problem and the Democrats recreated it!

    See, the pattern in red is upward and the pattern in blue is downward.

    Maybe you can't (won't) see that.

    BTW--I am still waiting for some clever graph that shows what the economy "looks like" under Obama's direction.........
