    Interesting chart......It has only been posted in about six other threads

    What does it prove? That some very good administrations had a large percentage of private sector experience (Reagan) while some horrific administrations also had large levels (Bush)

    Are you trying to imply we need more Dick Cheneys, Rumsfelds, Gonzales and Roves?

    It might be that Obama's goons might know exactly how to work the government, looks like they have enough experience. :eusa_whistle:

    Like, never let a crisis go to waste.
    Like, if we don't pass this bill in the next 48 hours we will fall into another Great Depression.
    Like, it's all Bush's fault.
    This is experience we can believe in. :lol:

    Ultimately, it all comes down to the individual appointee and their capabilities, but there is a valid point being made here. People who have actually worked a job in the private sector and/or managed a business in the real world are more times than not going to be more knowledgeable about what makes the economy tick than someone who lacks that experience.

    No, I'd say we need more Steve Forbeses, Barry Goldwaters, and Ron Pauls.

    What was the average unemployment rate during Bush's term? What has it been in Obama's term? What was the average inflation rate during Bush's term? What was it under Clinton? How has GDP growth been under Obama?
    Yeah, we need all the Cheneys and Roves we can get.

    Again, the Obama Administration has never created wealth, they have only spent other people's. Therefore they have no idea how wealth is created and cannot craft policies that will accomplish that. This is the basic problem. And it won't get any better while he's in office.
