You really should read your own links:

If you had, which amazingly you never do, you would have found proof positive that the worst growth period on the chart was under the current democrook congress ... while the best in recent times was under the prior republican congress.

As an added bonus, had you looked at the data objectively you would have spared yourself yet another embarrassing moment.

Yes, it is indisputable, but it will go right over the heads of the twists on here, who are too stupid to grasp that bad stewardship leaves behind it a runaway train on continued economic loss for the cxountry.

Once the Republicans send that train down the hill, with no brakes, and no steam, it takes an epic effort to turn it around, and get it chugging back uphill.

They like to ignore that little fact, same way they overlook the historic miserable failure of Republican economic policies.

Funny, how the right was cheering the growing deficits...saying it didn't matter, when Republicans were running them up.

Of Course!

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><span style='font-size: 20pt'>Former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill was told "deficits don't matter" when he warned of a looming fiscal crisis.
</span>
O'Neill, fired in a shakeup of Bush's economic team in December 2002, raised objections to a new round of tax cuts and said the president balked at his more aggressive plan to combat corporate crime after a string of accounting scandals because of opposition from "the corporate crowd," a key constituency.

O'Neill said he tried to warn Vice President Dick Cheney that growing budget deficits-expected to top $500 billion this fiscal year alone-posed a threat to the economy. Cheney cut him off. <span style='font-size: 20pt'>"You know, Paul, Reagan proved deficits don't matter,"</span> he said, according to excerpts. Cheney continued: "We won the midterms (congressional elections). This is our due." A month later, Cheney told the Treasury secretary he was fired. </div></div>

I guess you learned something today.

I learned you often post things that are unlinked and expect them to be accepted.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">O'Neill was appointed Secretary of the Treasury by George W. Bush. O'Neill was an outspoken member of the administration, often saying things to the press that went against the administration's party line, and doing unusual things like taking a tour of Africa with singer Bono.

A report commissioned in 2002 by O'Neill, while he was Treasury Secretary, suggested the United States faced future federal budget deficits of more than US$ 500 billion. The report also suggested that sharp tax increases, massive spending cuts, or both would be unavoidable if the United States were to meet benefit promises to its future generations.</div></div>

Beyond that ... anyone believing the Bush regime was "RIGHT WING" is displaying that they have no clue as to the definitions of the words they are using.

OH DEAR! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_O%27Neill_(businessman))
