A republican president, republican super majority in congress, sounds familiar? Oh yeah, the Great Depression destroyed the Republican majority. After years of taking credit for prosperity, the GOP found itself branded as the party of depression after the economic collapse in 1929. In 1932, at the depth of the Depression, dispirited Republicans renominated Hoover. To the surprise of no one, the majority of Americans voted against Hoover, who took less than 40% of the popular vote and carried only six states. The GOP's loss of power was even clearer in Congress, where Republicans were outnumbered by Democrats 313 to 117 in the House and 60 to 35 in the Senate.

And the Great Depression, like the Great Ressession, lasted as long as the Democrats kept up the anti-business class-warfare rehtoric. FDRs economy only perked up after "Dr. New Deal" was replaced with "Dr. Win the War."

Unemployment statistics unfiltered and not cooked in Obama's hopenchange oven.
