I'm intrigued by the claim Obama and his acolytes make that his bold actions saved us from another Great Depression. It's a curious claim.
This graph is from "The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan." I won't comment on the actual unemployment rate since the ARRA was passed, other than to mention it is much higher than expected with stimulus and, oddly enough, higher than it was predicted to be without stimulus as well. I know I know, it's George Bush's fault the Obama economics team was so poor at forecasting.
