So my coworker the other day asked me: "Do you actually think Romney could have turned the economy around, especially after the mess the guy before him made?"
I said, "Yes I do. FDR was handed a recession, and he increased taxes and regulations and it turned into a 10 year long depression. Obama was handed a recession, and he increased taxes and regulations and turned it into what we have now. On the other hand, Warren G. Harding was handed a recession, and he cut taxes and cut regulations, and the result was the roaring 20s. John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush did the same, and the result was a booming economy. I know people don't want to believe this, but the economy of the 2000s was booming after the Bush tax cuts until democrats took over the House and Senate in 2006."
