Say, maybe you've asked yourself this question: "Self, we're kinda adding jobs at a slow rate. How long would it take Obama's economy to get back to where we were before the financial crash?"

Alan Greenspan's vision of easy money and the disaster it created dwarfs your other Republican heros, like Arthur Burns, and yet you complain that the economy isn't right back where it was when your boys were running the bus off the cliff.
