have Republican or Democratic Presidents done more to grow the economy?

What does the data tell us if we disaggregate GDP growth, changes in unemployment rate, and changes in the federal debt by sitting President's political party? Also - which party does a better job of helping the Poor and Middle Class (i.e. the VAST MAJORITY of the people in America and an eve greater proportion of the people living in this area?

OMG!!!! That means Obama was supportive of one war that Bush started, Afghanistan, so that means Obama was 50% WRONG on 'wars started'.

Now, he's credited with effectively losing the other war, Iraq, and is proceeding toward losing the loss of Afghanistan as well. If he accomplishes that failure also, he will be chocked up in the 100% loss column for 'wars concluded'.

Nascar - So you're under the belief that occurrences including long-term developing ones, like national economic recessions, occur because of and during the time period of a sitting president?

I bet Ronald Reagan would have been surprised to have heard THAT ONE. LOL

Kunect, I read that link a few days ago and it doesn't change the fact that -every Republican President since Calvin Coolidge in 1923 has presided over a recession that started WHILE he was sitting in office.

Considering the GOP likes to label itself, "The Party Of Growth," guess what GOP, recession is the exact opposite of growth!!!

 every Republican President since Calvin Coolidge in 1923 has presided over a recession that started WHILE he was sitting in office.     That is more than ninety years of Republican presidents with an unbroken record of bringing recession to the nation's economy.

Bush came into office saying "this downturn is nothing, wait to you see what I leave my successor."

Bam!!!

Bush was handed a surplus. In fact, the surplus was so large, he gave this reasoning for suggesting cutting the taxes to wealthy and reducing revenue:   

""This surplus is not the government's money," he said in a characteristic line yesterday in Council Bluffs, Iowa. "It's the people's money. And I believe we ought to listen to the people of America and share that money with the people who pay the bills."    G.W. Bush

 Bush doubled the debt on idealogical zealousness and bad decisions; Obama will double the debt to resolve a crisis and save the economy from a far worse fate. This is the story beyond the numbers.

This claim is easily checked by plugging Obama’s inauguration date — Jan. 20, 2009 — into the Treasury Department’s handy “debt to the penny” calculator. It shows that the nation’s total debt stood at $10.6 trillion on the day Obama took office, and it was at $16.2 trillion on Oct. 8. That means total debt has increased $5.6 trillion so far under Obama. That’s a huge increase in the national debt — more than 50 percent. But $5.6 trillion is nowhere near “almost as much” as the $10.6 trillion in debt amassed under the first 43 presidents.

Which political party ran the White House when the US economy was in a depression/recession... I believe that we had Repub presidents during these dark periods more than 70% of the time starting with the great depression...

The jobs report trumpeted by the Labor Department last week included 48,000 construction jobs. The media made that out to be a big deal.

There were no sub-notes about how "Temporary" construction jobs are. I guess it only matters that those Temporary Construction jobs did not involve work on the Keystone.
