President Obama says this is the worst economy since the great depression. Obviously this serves the purposes of talking down the economy and prolonging the problem. But is it even accurate? Bradley Schiller in the WSJ actually looks at the numbers, comparing the Great Depression, the early 80s, and the current situation. He conclusively shows that Obama is wrong. The question is this: Is this an example of more dishonesty from Obama? Or does he simply not know the facts?
