Typical Tea Party type, overly simplified solution to an incredibly complex problem. Sure, it was Hoover alright. His whopping 9 months of governance caused everything to go from screaming great to a massive depression. Blinders on much? By the way, Harding was still alive (and the most corrupt President in history) in 1921.

Yep, that's a pretty decent message. Too bad nobody sees that but everyone sees the Op-ed that Boehner put out there agreeing that the sequester was bad, but we need to go ahead with it. Kinda just proving my point.

Yeah it was great alright. She just kinda forgets to mention that the whole Harding/Coolidge experiment ended in the Great Depression. There's a model we need to emulate.

Well, let's look at the GOP's messaging so far on this..... Yes, the sequester is bad and it will cause economic damage but it's the only way Washington might cut spending so we're going to go ahead and push for it, but it was Obama's idea. That's a losing message. End of story.
True, American Tea-libanites are a lot like cockroaches, just not as easy to look at.
This is so awesome. I thought for sure Dems would lose the senate in '14 but with all this help from Republicans those chances are looking better every day. Between the 15 slugs that sent the letter asking Obama to withdraw Hagel and this clown going so far as a fillibuster a nominee. I just wish some of the Teafools in the House would get some impeachment proceedings going. That would pretty much seal the deal for Dems.
He'll need the Medicaid dollars to have a prayer of actually creating those 250k jobs he promised in his first term. How's he doing so far? Somewhere around 25k in two years. Way to go Walker (lolz). http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2012/dec/16/scott-walker/gov-scott-walker-says-wisconsin-has-created-almost/
Karl Rove is betting they'll win without you. Focus groups being conducted by Republican pollsters are backing up Rove's ideas. Face it, Republicans will shed NO tears to see you go. If we're lucky maybe Walker will get unstupid here in WI and do some Medicaid expanding too huh?
The Supreme Court settled that argument over 70 years ago. Try keeping up next time. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it. - P.J. O'Rourke
Per your BLS link.... All Govt employees: Jan 2009: 22,471,000 Dec 2012: 21,917,000 Fed employees: Jan 2009: 2,789,000 Dec 2012: 2,796,000 Ok, there are roughly 7000 more fed employees (seasonally adjusted, number is lower if you use non-seasonally adjusted) employees.
Example, let's use 2009 since that's a year we keep discussing... 2009 (Jan)131627 (Feb)131387 (Mar)131249 (Apr)131429 (May)131697 (Jun)131510 (Jul)129910 (Aug)129786 (Sept)130144 (Oct)130741 (Nov)130787 (Dec)130242 (Annual)130876 average the 12 months and you get 130875.75. Seems suspiciously close to the 130876 number that's in the annual column doesn't it? Plus for your theory to be correct you're saying that somehow 600k jobs appeared between the Dec number and the "annual" number. While Obama has created jobs, no single month has hit anything like 600k jobs.
