As for being "in a shithole of a recession", you're just utterly, utterly wrong. Either that, or you have no idea what the word "recession" means. GDP is very strong, which is primary measure of the economy. Unemployment is low. The markets in overall, in very good shape. Factories are operating at the fastest pace in almost 20 years. We are NOWHERE NEAR a recession. We're in "strong growth". The piece missing is job growth. Almost all other sectors of the economy are doing well. You're crazy, with all due respect.

And, how can Bush be blamed for the loss of benefits? Those are business decisions and a growing trend due to a variety of issues.

The problem is that Bush specifically advertised his policies as tools for creating new jobs. The job projections based on those policies have been unrealistic from the start, and now the administration has backed away from them. Remember, how many hundreds of thousands of jobs were supposed to be created? He's failed spectacularly.

SDW, factories are operating at the fastest pace and aren't hiring. Do you see a problem with that?

Yes. That's because job growth is last to come back. You'll see

SDW, no. These companies aren't rehiring because they updated their factories to need less workers. They made capital investments into automation. People were expendable.

Riiiight. So you're saying Clinton had MORE to go on, or LESS? Gee, let me think.

You're saying Bush had less info to use to make a decision? You're wrong.

manpower, INC. is predicting the highest percentage of companies willing to hire in the Spring season since 2000.

Btw, your statement above is unsupported. Thanks.

I'm saying he had more reason than Clinton did. You can't be arguing there was less of a reason.

Yeah! He just wasn't telling anybody what the " reason " was.

You aren't seriously relying on predictions, now, are you, SDW?

Well since they are, I don't know, in the EMPLOYMENT industry, I'll take their word. Their data was based on a survey of their client companies. It's a pretty decent prediction...you know, talking to the actual companies who hire.
