That talk was overdone. The US was no where near a depression. That was politics. Again, the great depression saw GDP drop by:
1930 -9.4%
1931 -8.5
1932 -13.4
1933 -2.1

U6 unemployment in the mid 40% range

compared to:
2008 -0.3
2009 -3.1

U6 unemployment in the high teens/low 20% range.

It was talk show hype to make comparisons.

The recession in the mid 40's was 5x worse, and the mid 1970's and early 80's were equal to this most recent recession.

Will Obama have the highest per capita debt at the end of his first term?

The black president wants blacks to go vote for him because he is black and blacks should support blacks because they are black!

What do you think Romney would be called if he made a campaign video specifically for whites?

I believe Hunter can't even vote yet if I'm remembering correct.
