    Because they "imagine" how something is supposed to work and figure that's "good enough".

    you must have missed the 6 years of full employment. Convenient to ignore those isnt it?

    Notice when it started to change? After Democrats took over! Thank you Obama!

    When Bush was in office, here in Ohio, we had reports about businesses paying two dollars over minimum wage, because they were trying to attract new workers.

    Now, you're lucky if you can find a job.

    Liberals can push this pap, but the facts are too easy bring into evidence.

    Unemployment was 3.9% when Bush took office. Unemployment was never below 4% at any time after his tax cuts.

    How could any of that be 'full' employment? How could 6% for most of 2003 be 'full employment' if UE had been 4% most of 2000?

    How can your unemployment rate be 'full employment' if it's possible to go 2 points lower?

    Can you tell us what Bush and the Democratic Congress did to cause unemployment to rise in 2008 and 2009?

    Specifically?

    Or are you just mindlessly repeating a fallacious talking point?

    Your partisan "I'm so economically ignorant that butter won't melt in my mouth" defence grows wearisome, TPS.

    Under which administration did the Treasury and FED starting bailing our banks, again, Lad?

    The right has certain faith based myths that do not work but they support them anyway.
