American Observer recently created a video to show the record job losses since Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Harry Reid took over Congress in 2007. Its not a pretty picture:

It looks like a disease spreading across the nation.
If you plot the periods of Democrat and Republican control of Congress against historical unemployment and stock market charts you will see some very interesting correlations.
In January 1995, the Republicans took control of the House and Senate. Unemployment was at approximately 6.25%. The Dow Jones Industrial Index was at approximately 3,800.
The Republicans controlled both houses of Congress until the end of 2000. During the period from January 1995 to December 2000, unemployment dropped from 6.25% to approximately 3.75%. During the same period, the Dow rose from 3,800 to over 10,600.
From January 2001 until the end of 2002, the Democrats either controlled the Senate or it was split 50/50 between the parties. During this period, unemployment climbed from 3.75% to approximately 6.5%. During the same period, the Dow dropped from 10,600 to 8,300.
From January 2003 until the end of 2006, the Republicans again controlled both houses of Congress. During this period, unemployment dropped from 6.5% to just over 4%. During the same period, the Dow rose from 8,300 to 12,300.
In November 2006, the Democrats took control of both houses of Congress. In the same month, unemployment was at 4.3% and the DOW was over 12,500. Since then, the Democrats have continuously held control of Congress. Unemployment has continuously climbed and the Dow plummeted.
Imagine what the MSM would say if there were such a perfect correlation between CO2 and global temperatures?
Watch it on Youtube before they declare it to be racist...
Reid: Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good....3/5/10
It looks like cancer ....
Hey! It IS cancer!

Thanks for the well put together data.
Here’s something to have in your back pocket when discussing this with liberals.
When you present the data and a liberal says the data is not compelling enough, just tell them that there is less correlation in the data that supports Global Warming and liberals have no issue believing those numbers.
Almost nobody ever mentions the fact that the dems have had Congress since 2007. To the MSM and the left, these are still the “Bush years”.
The GOP seems to NEVER hit on this. They go after Obama exclusively. They talk about how bad things have gotten in 18 months. The left then counters that things started going bad before Obama...during the “Bush years”.
Truth is, the left has been in control for something like 42-43 months. Bush certainly had trouble with the veto pen, but the left has held the purse strings. I remember hearing Bush saying something along the lines of “the voters had spoken” when the dems took control, and that he’d do everything he could to work with them.
As a result, I’m really not sure how much of the voting public even realizes how long democrats have been pushing their agenda through. I think the media is doing everything in its power to make sure we don’t know.
I see the stimulus plan is working. /sarcasm
One of the scariest things I’ve seen. Must see.
bump for later
