Tim Gratz Posted February 25, 2006 Share Posted February 25, 2006 Source: "The National Interest" column in the Jan 9, 2006 "US News & World Report": Economic growth in the third quarter of 2005 was 4.1%. That was the 10th consecutive quarter with a growth rate of 3.0 or higher. The unemployment rate is 5.0%, lower than the average unemployment rate for the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Since April of 2003 the economy has created 5.1 million new jobs. Core inflation is only 2.1%. Productivity growth for 2000-2005 is 3.4%, the highest of ANY five year period in FIFTY years! Those are quite remarkable statistics. There is no question in my mind George Bush would be handily re-elected if he was permitted to run for a third term (which of course he is not).
