In the continuing attempt to smear Obama, the Wall Street Journal now presents a chart of "2-term Presidents" and the growth rates they achieved...

and, of course, Reagan's is higher (no mention of the ballooning deficit), and Clinton's is higher (no mention of the shrinking deficit), but whatayaknow, they forgot about that other two-term President whose name shall not be mentioned by Republicans.

Yes, the Wall Street Journal, arbiter of frank and factual analysis, neglected to include George W. Bush in their charts of the success of other recent Presidents. One can only wonder why... (Well, perhaps it was the financial cataclysm, the increasing deficit, and the lack of economic growth that contributed to their forgetfulness?)
