Other than the one given in the graph, no.

It certainly must be rough being you.

It's probably true.

However, I suspect the workforce participation rate in the W years declined during supposed recovery times, in the later years.

It might be true but I suspect its misleading, that's why I asked for a link. Fact is, he hasn't got one and he has no idea if its true or not. Considering where the gif comes from, I have my doubts. Here are the next two gifs from the link (http://balooscartoonblog.blogspot.com/).

Se what I mean?



Two inconvenient truths are that,

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">CAMBRIDGE September 20, 2010 - The Business Cycle Dating Committee of the National Bureau of Economic Research met yesterday by conference call. At its meeting, the committee determined that a trough in business activity occurred in the U.S. economy in June 2009. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>The trough marks the end of the recession that began in December 2007 and the beginning of an expansion. <span style="color: #3333FF">The recession lasted 18 months, which makes it <u>the longest of any recession since World War II.</u></span></span> Previously the longest postwar recessions were those of 1973-75 and 1981-82, both of which lasted 16 months. </div></div>


<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">There’s little question that the Obama recovery is stronger than the George W. Bush recovery -- in large part because the Bush recovery was so anemic. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Not only did the Bush recovery produce job losses during the 15-month period Goolsbee cited, but it also produced job losses over the full 23-month period. Over the first 23 months of the Bush recovery, the economy actually lost 757,000 private-sector jobs and 577,000 total jobs. </span></div></div>

Which is probably why the Bush recovery is scored over a 4 year period, unusually for the rest of the data.

From 2001 to 2004 is 3 years.

From 2009 to 2012 is 3 years.

Your mental gymnastics fool nobody ... except maybe snoopy.

'01-'04 is 4 years, and '09-<s>'12</s>'11 is 3 years.

Or, using your odd 'year' arithmetic, if '01 to '04 is REALLY 3 years, then '09-<s>'12</s>'11 MUST BE 2 years.

Whichever we use, there is an extra year for the supposed 'Bush recovery at the same time in the recovery.'

You wish and hope that the chart said '12 for Obama, when it appears in my browser to say '11. Looking again, please, what does yours say?
