look, CNN had a graphic that stated Ed Koch died in 2103; i immediately assumed it was a typo, not that CNN thought it was 2103
that's the main difference between rational, reasonable people and emotional people.....
Is it a typo when they combine to different measurements in the same graphic?
In fact, the 2008 and 2009 figures reflect federal spending growth pegged to federal revenue, while the 2010-2013 figures counted spending growth as a share of the economy. A more direct comparison is unremarkable. If Fox applied the same standard as they used for Bush, then 2010-2013 spending growth under Obama would average 7.9 percent, down from 10.1 in 2009, the year that Bush and Obama shared.
CONCLUSION: IF YOU WATCH FOX NEWS YOU KNOW LESS THAN IF YOU WATCH NOTHING.
One tiny problem, though: The graphic, which showed the rate nearly doubling since Obama took office, was actually comparing today's "real unemployment rate" with 2009's official unemployment rate. The latest official unemployment rate is 8.1— only 0.3 percent higher, which is not nearly enough to make POTUS look like he's hemorrhaging jobs.
