Yeah, well, to carry that analogy forward, what is Uncle Ben doing with the money supply right now?

Because there are a whole different set of dynamics in play than in the 80s. Take unemployment for instance. I do not think we will ever see it below say 6% simply because of the automation and computers performing tasks that people used to do.

Obviously, different sides spin it different ways. Essentially, however, Reagan's first three years were more intensely worse (higher unemployment, inflation etc.) early on, but recovery was definitely starting by year 3. The current recession isn't as steep, but more resistant to resolution, seemingly.

Either way, nobody would be excited about living through either economy.
Even when it did start growing, the Democrats always talked about all the bums in the cold, and shook ketchup bottles at any tv camera that would cover them.

Oh swell! Vailpass measures these things not based on empirical evidence, but based on his feelings and his own peers who naturally think like him.

You know it's only a website right? And that you can't really do anything to him other than call him nasty names?

I'm sure that rating has taken a hit since then, but I doubt it's dropped 30% as nothing has happened since then to tank views on him as a person, as opposed to job performance.
Obama's approval rating dips below Carter's


The frontrunners in the 2012 election race like to label Barack Obama a one-term president, and new reports suggest that prediction might be more likely than ever.

Obama’s approval rating is now lower than that of Jimmy Carter before he lost a second chance at the White House.


Using data on the approval rating of US presidents collected from Gallup polling, US News & World Report has recently revealed that American’s favor the job approval of current-President Barack Obama less than they did of Jimmy Carter during the same point in his administration that lasted but a mere one-term.

Just shy of entering his fourth year in the Oval Office, President Obama’s current rating is 43 percent; in 1979, President Carter was favored by only 51 percent of Americans. In the case of President Carter, he was crushed in the polls a year later during the election of 1980, with Republican candidate Ronald Reagan captured 489 electoral votes to Carter’s 49.

Support for Obama has been waning during the last few months of his administration, with a poll conducted by Quinnipiac University this fall revealing that his disapproval rating reached a peak of 55 percent. Other recent polls by Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal (in conjunction with ABC News and NBC News, respectively), also suggested that his disapproval rating was above 50 percent. A Gallup survey in August said that Obama’s actual job approval rating was that of 39 percent.

In the US News article, Gallup data has also concluded that Obama’s average approval rating throughout his presidency has hovered at 49 percent, with only three other presidents faring worse at this time in their own presidency: Carter, Gerald Ford and Harry S Truman. Ford also served but one term.

I would guess that it's the Mad Crapper and that the mods didn't like what he was doing so they purged it.

Who cares so long as he's banned. He adds nothing.
