1. Obama has had to follow 30 years of Reaganomics, also

When people complain, what they are really complaining about is that they aren't paid enough to live the same kind of lifestyle as they used to (or their parents did). Well, that's what happens with a 30 year effort to push down wages, offshore jobs and eliminate benefits. You reap what you sew.

2. I don't know if America will ever recover from Reaganomics

Team GOP survives on a platform made out of bullshit. Even most business people understand that demand side economics has worked better than supply side. Who's going to buy what they're selling?

Leave it to the "America loving party" to send American jobs overseas and screw American workers.

3. What a silly question!!

President Reagan's economy was that of a white Republican god. President Obama's economy is that of a black Democrat! Need more be said??

4. That graphic might be more effective if it quoted more than one statistic

I'm sure there are other indicators they could have used in addition to the unemployment rate.

6. Obama's unemployment rate doesn't include the millions that have given up looking for a job.

 

Do you honestly believe the real unemployment rate is 6.1%? How about people who are currently under-employed? That was not an issue during Reagan's presidency - the jobs and the pay scales were much better.

Sorry, but the job market and overall economy were far better under Reagan than they are now.
