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?

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."

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.

And it also states "And it’s also untrue — as claimed in a graphic widely circulated by email and in social media postings — that the debt has increased more under Obama than under all previous 43 presidents combined. In fact, as of Jan. 31, 2012, the rise under Obama had yet to surpass the rise under his predecessor, George W. Bush."

What difference does that make greek ? We all have to live with the policies that a president generates ! Some , like Dubya , are disastrous for everyday people and great for the wealthy !Like Dubya said "the have mores and the have lots mores "!

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.
