    Job losses all thanks to Bush's and the Congress's (this includes the minority Dems) of the economy.

    Recovery will be due to BHO and the majority in the Congress.

    Your party, Plymouth, is going to be in the minority for a very long time.

    not at all. Reagan lost the same number of jobs as obama has so far, in about 3x the time period.

    And like I said at the end of my post I hope the Obama admin and the Congress have the same roaring economic success (as far as unemployment goes) as Reagan (16 million jobs gained in 6 years after losing 2.5 million)

    I have a feeling that for a long time to come, Republicans will use Obama in every single instance. "Reagan lost 2.5 million jobs" SO WHAT? Obamaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"

    You wouldn't of made this thread if not for Toro's. Try not to act otherwise.

    That is correct

    as for the other part of you're post :eusa_eh: Did you ignore my wishes for obama to have the same success (13.5 million net jobs created)?

    Why did you ignore that and turn it partisan?

    I saw your wishes, but due to the intent of the thread, they seem empty when it comes to the political aspect. This entire premise of the thread is a partisan reaction. I'm sure you want to see 13.5 million net jobs created as would anyone. However, the intent of this thread stands.
