    Re: The Official Right Wingers Are A Joke Thread!

    Had to check on this, but as I thought, both these alleged exceptions are false.

    List of US recessions

    Ike's last year in office there was a recession in '60 that went through to early '61 (i.e., as he left office in January, it was still on-going).

    Carter's 1980 recession ended in July of that year, so the economy was in recovery for about two quarters as he left office.

    Checking further, both Ford and Reagan were Republican presidents I believe (didn't look that up though! [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crazy.gif[/img]), and both left office with no recession on-going at the time.

    It may be silly to fact check political cartoon things, but there is no reason to put bad information out.

    True, but the country went thru recession under both Ford and Reagan. A case can made for Ford's problems having been inherited from Nixon, and Reagan's having been inherited from Carter. But the basic fact remains that since Ike all but one recession occurred under a Republican administration.

    If you meant 'began' instead of occurred, that would cover the early JFK year recession exception to even that, I suppose.

    However, since it is a rare presidency that doesn't see one or more recessions occurring in their term(s) (almost all did), I think this point you raise is more related to the very limited number of Democratic Party presidents since Ike's time (and the early '60s being a time of war and a huge ramp-up of the Cold War and related military spending).
