Republican Led Economy VS Democrat Led Economy


From Moonbattery:

And more on unemployment:

From Malkin:

Liberals, being immune to reality as they are, think that the economy is actually better than before.

Meanwhile in Not-Bizarro-World, the much-touted Obama/Dems 1.5 trillion dollar Stimulus Package has created an amazing 63 jobs.

This correlates nicely with Obama’s effect on the stock market:

Which may have led to this, via Gateway Pundit:

No wonder his approval rating has dropped:

And more Americans are turning Conservative:

    What’s the “Peggy Effect”? Essentially, victims of the Peggy Effect are all kids who got up all excited on Christmas morning and ran downstairs only to discover that not only were there no presents under the tree, but that Santa stole most of the shit they already had — and they’re upset.

    I think the chances are “slim to none” that the Democrats will do that. The $787 billion of the first stimulus may not have yet been spent, but you can be sure it has already been promised to someone the Democrats want to keep happy. You won’t see that money redirected to what it should have been used for in the first place.

    NOTE: Hume’s “Chickens coming home to roost” remark should remind President Obama of another time, and another place where someone used that phrase (see the 3:09 mark of the video below):

    As opposed to balancing your state’s fricking budget? Reducing salaries for your hundreds of thousands of state employees? Cutting taxes on investments and small businesses? Drilling for oil and natural gas? Cutting benefits to illegal aliens? Ending the union monopolies that are strangling the economy?

    Noooo, you couldn’t do that! That would be fiscally responsible. And you claim to be an economist, Levy? You’re not an economist. You’re a Democrat hack. A drone. A loser. Now go back into your closet and come up with a plan that doesn’t further bankrupt the federal government, you ridiculous little man.

    You’ve been proven correct already, sandy:

    Shocker!… BILLIONS In Stimulus Aid Went to Obama Supporting Counties

    Billions of dollars in federal aid delivered directly to the local level to help revive the economy have gone overwhelmingly to places that supported President Obama in last year’s presidential election.

    Counties that supported Obama last year have reaped twice as much money per person from the administration’s $787 billion economic stimulus package as those that voted for his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, a USA TODAY analysis of government disclosure and accounting records shows.

    The reports show the 872 counties that supported Obama received about $69 per person, on average. The 2,234 that supported McCain received about $34.

    You might want to read the original USA Today article (oh, that’s a liberal bastion as well these days).

    How amusing that you graph cuts off right where the stock markets hit rock bottom (Feb ’09), but doesn’t take into account the growth of the last four months.

  7. Scott Thong Says:

    You’re right.

    This graph is much better at depicting a correlation between national leadership and investor confidence:

    But hey, let’s look at the state level instead:

    ABC News lists the 10 in biggest trouble, along with their budget gaps as a percentage of their overall budgets:

    California: $53.7 billion shortfall or 58 percent of its budget
    Arizona: $4 billion shortfall or 41 percent of its budget
    Nevada: $1.2 billion or 38 percent of its budget
    Illinois: $9.2 billion or 33 percent of its budget
    New York: $17.9 billion or 32 percent of its budget
    Alaska: $1.35 billion shortfall or 30 percent of its budget
    New Jersey: $8.8 billion or 30 percent of its budget
    Oregon: $4.2 billion or 29 percent of its budget
    Vermont: $278 million or 25 percent of its budget
    Washington: $3.6 billion or 23 percent of its budget
    Connecticut: $4.1 billion or 23 percent of its budget

    You’ll notice that almost all are blue states.

    One exception is Arizona, which is suffering severely as an inevitable consequence of the profligate spending spree by former Democrat governor Janet “Crappy Nappy” Napolitano.

    Oh! And of course, I need to pimp this:
