Not to kill your buzz, but let us take a longer view of the situation.
BTW, both of these charts were taken from The Bureau of Labor Statistics. We have to go back to the early 90's to find a time when unemployment touched 7.5 % and we ran the first George Bush out of town for allowing that.
In fairness to the Dems, the GOP took back one House of Congress in 2010 and has held it since then. But Speaker Boehner and his RINOs have betrayed their own party and for all practical purposes the Democrats run Congress if only by proxy.
Oh, and it has taken almost six years for the Dow to recover its 2007 high water mark. More bubbly. What price did we pay for our renaissance? Disaster in every other viable statistic, most significantly, our debt.
The doubling of our national debt has not fueled a recovery. 7.5 % unemployment! Pop those corks, baby!
