Prior to 2008 is irrelevant where Obama is concerned.


2008 is the measuring stick, and we're way ahead of where we were then.


Uh, no. While 2008 was bad the fact remains that since 2008 we've had over 40 months of 8% unemployment, which wouldn't be a problem if people couldn't remember decades of 3% unemployment prior to that point. If the Dems goal is to make people forget anything before 2008 happened then this is going to be far easier than I thought!

People aren't going to accept 8% unemployment as the "new normal", period.
