It is currently 21 straight monthes of private sector job growth. It took FDR 7 years to return emplyment to pre-depression levels. The deeper the hole the longer the climb back. The George W. Bush Great Recession/Depression had a -9% drop in GDP, 2nd only to Hoover's Great Depression.

If we want to avoid the long, painful climb back from economic FUBAR we must quit electing the assholes that are causing them in the 1st place, namely Republicans.

"Should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things, but their number is negligible and their number is negligible and they are stupid." -President Dwight Eisenhower-
