NY Times...what a difference the candidate makes

Then and Now

The New York Times seems to be changing with time when it comes to interpreting the country's economic outlook.

This is an editorial from October 29, 1992 -- quote -- "President Bush smiled when he learned this week that economic growth during the third quarter reached a surprising 2.7 percent, almost twice the previous rate. But his smile shouldn't be broad. The new figure almost certainly exaggerates the health of the economy, which continues to creep along at a painfully slow pace. Even the 2.7 figure is half the normal rate of recovery and not enough to bring down unemployment."

And then there was this from three days ago -- this past Saturday, October 27 -- quote -- "The slow pace of the nation's economic recovery has picked up a bit lately. In the third quarter, the economy grew at an annual rate of 2 percent, beating expectations and the 1.3 percent growth in the second quarter. Over the past year, the growth rate has been 2.3 percent. At that pace there's enough momentum to keep unemployment -- currently 7.8 percent -- from getting much worse."

The rate to bring down unemployment is quoted from the NY Times, not me.

Yeah, one set of data coming out of a brief recession at the end of the largest peace time expansion of the economy in history to that point....and the other following the second worst economic recession in history on the heels of 7 years of economic struggle to rebound from 911. Yet, we are to have the same expectations out of those two completely different contexts.

Apparently the right can't tell the difference between apples and watermellons.

Dittos, man.

So I could perhaps enlighten and educate them...because clearly you and so many others in this state are beyond help?

BTW...I'm not surprised you decided to ignore the content and substance entirely, and go directly to the personal attacks. As cynical as I have become....even I try to address content when given a real opportunity. Not you tea party types though, eh?

Yes, the people of New York or Oregon would welcome you with open arms.

Good luck. Make us proud.

PS, you didn't address anything.
