Obama and Republican God Reagan

Discussion in 'Politics' started by .........., Mar 12, 2010.

  1. Reagan took office with a 7.5 % unemployment rate,and it peaked at 10.8 %

    Obama took office with a 7.7 % unemployment rate,and so far it has peaked at 10.1% and is curretly at 9.7

    Obamas numbers so far are better then Reagan's,yet the Hannity/Beck/Rush/GOP crowd praise Reagan as a god, but that same crowd says Obama is such a bad President.
  2. Stock market Reagans first year


    Stock market Obamas first year


  3. Don't even waste your time comparing Obama to Reagan. A more likely comparison would be LBJ.

    I can see that comparison working as stock market is only one facet. The market bottomed in 1982 and then rose. Volcker the austere was in charge instead of "printing press" Bernanke. Bernanke has stated the picnic is going to end.
  4. Hello


    Nice work cutting the chart in half to suit your fantasy that Obama is a good president, why dont you show the chart from where he actually took office, not starting from right at the low of the the bear market, market is only up about 25-30% since he took office, and only about 20% from where it became a foregone conclusion he was going to win, and this is with him printing non stop monopoly money, why dont you try to name even one single thing Obama has doen which has been good for business since he took office besides hand out free money to everyone. Markets are rallying inspite of him not because of him.

  5. I lived in Texas and joined due Reagen election. I can't really remember him doing jack shit other under than firing all the Air traffic Controllers. And giving us lots and lots of new toys to train with out in the the FMF.
  6. What were you personally doing during Reagens terms?
