The Coming Republican Depression

I’m not the first one to think it, but I just wanna get a post I can refer back to while laughing at the painfully transparent and easily predictable Minitrue.

We’ve been in a “recovery” since right around late January, 2009 even though the numbers have sucked throughout.  In that example, the NY Post is talking about “double dip recession”. How many double dip recessions does it take before you’re in a depression?

When Bush was Emmanuel Goldstein, a “jobless recovery” was a cause for tut-tutting.

While Obama has been God-President, the jobless recovery is a good thing, what with all the funemployment and extended food stamps for all.
Under Obama, over 8% unemployment is ignored, while the actual numbers (including those who have given up) are way over 10 and that’s not just ignored but verboten to even mention..

Under Bush, at under 5% unemployment, those who had given up were mentioned an awful lot.

Which is even more egregious considering that 5% unemployment is pretty much full employment.

All the people who want a job can get one. So the ones who “gave up”, just didn’t want to either work or move to where their work was. Now people just can’t get jobs.

So if Obama loses in November, we’ll be in Depression by around late January to early February. Count on it.

We’re all gonna be doomed if Romney doesn’t fix in 2 weeks what it took Obama 4 years to break.

    Bonus question: will the coming Republican depression be mostly the fault of Bush 43 or Romney? Must show your work for full credit! 😛

      The funnest part, for me, is that implicit in that question is that Obama is either a hapless incompetent or he refused to do what would have worked for some reason. ‘C’, all of the above, would be my answer.)

      That part is always ignored of course.

      Which brings up an ongoing funny. .
      It’s 4 years into the age of Obama and yet, Firefox doesn’t recognize “Obama” while it does recognize “Romney”.
      As I type in Firefox, Obama always has that, “this is misspelled”, red, squiggly line under it while Romney does not.
      That makes me laugh.

      Explorer recognizes Obama.
      That might just say something about Firefox.
