What a difference a Democrat in office makes

"Unwilling to bide his time until President Bush packs up his things and leaves town, Obama simply took control of economic policy on Nov. 23, when he unveiled an economic team noted for its brains and experience and asked it to come up with a massive economic-stimulus plan...Obama no longer has the luxury of waiting...Unemployment has risen to 6.5%..."
- TIME magazine, Nov. 26, 2008

"With the local unemployment rate above 12% and rising again this summer, about a third of the employer display tables stood empty...Some voters bucked at the incongruity, repeatedly telling pollsters that even programs that have clearly helped the economy, like the $787 billion stimulus, did no such thing."
- TIME magazine, Sept. 2, 2010 (The article never mentions national unemployment has risen to 9.6 percent, a 50 percent increase of the rate they labeled a disaster when a Republican was in the White House.)
