The Misery Index and Politics
Historically, a high (or climbing) misery index has been a political football resulting in a change of Presidents while a low (or falling) misery index resulted in reelection. Eisenhower was reelected in November 1956 with a misery index of 6.53%. Johnson (D) ended with a misery index of 8.13 in November of 1968 and Humphrey (the Democratic candidate replacing Johnson) lost to Nixon. Early in the Nixon administration the misery index climbed to a high of 11.67% in December 1970. From there through the election in November 1972 the index was falling and Nixon was re-elected. As a matter of fact, according to Wikipedia,“Emphasizing a good economy and his successes in foreign affairs, such as ending American involvement in Vietnam and establishing relations with China, Nixon won the election in a landslide.” However, the Misery Index bottomed two months later at 8.55% and from there the misery index climbed drastically. Finally, Nixon resigned when his misery index climbed to 17.01% in July of 1974. Although Watergate was the trigger one has to wonder if the economy was doing well would Watergate have been such an issue?

Gerald Ford took office in September 1974 with a misery index of 17.85%. It peaked at 19.9% a few months later and then fell steadily as his term progressed to 12.66% in December 1976 but he still lost. Perhaps if his term had been slightly longer (i.e. he had a full term) he might have been reelected. Jimmy Carter quoted the misery index extensively during his 1976 Presidential campaign to unseat Ford, even though Ford actually presided over a declining Misery index. Carter on the other hand presided over an increasing misery index of his own, starting his term at 12.72% and increasing to levels well above Ford’s highs. Carter’s misery index peaked at 21.98% in June of 1980. His misery index was still above 20% come November 1980, so Reagan was able to use Carter’s own words and the misery index against him in the following election and make Carter a rare one-term President. Reagan took office in January 1981 with a misery index of 19.33%. By November of 1984 the misery index had fallen steadily to 11.25% and Reagan was reelected. By November 1988 the misery index was 9.55% and so the Republicans were able to elect Bush 1 in the hopes of more prosperity to come. But four years later (November 1992) the misery index was higher at 10.45% and Clinton was elected. In January the index stood at 10.56%. By November 1996 the misery index had fallen to 8.66% and Clinton was reelected. By November 2000, the misery index still stood at 7.35% and Bush 2 was elected. This election and the Nixon win over Johnson are the only two elections in the history of the misery index where the misery index was relatively low when parties changed. But in both cases the misery index was climbing fairly steeply prior to the election. So it is possible that people felt they were becoming worse off. During Bush 2&#8242;s first term, the misery index rose slightly to 8.92% by November 2004 and the election was very close. Resulting in Bush 2 barely getting re-elected. In July 2008 the Republicans were in trouble with the misery index at 11.4% and a banking crisis at hand. By November the misery index had fallen to 7.87% but that was primarily due to a collapse in inflation even though unemployment continued to rise. The inflationary collapse was due to a massive contraction in the money supply due to a stock market crash rather than any positive economic factors. In effect the crashing stock market led everyone to feel poorer (and most were poorer as the value of their house and any investments had declined precipitously) thus the market trumped the Misery index itself. So the social mood was ready for a change in political parties. Worldwide this same phenomenon appears to hold as well, this seems to be confirmed by the recent elections in both France and Greece where their economies were faltering and the seated Presidents were both voted out. In the most recent election apparently Obama was seen as presiding over a falling Misery index and so he was reelected.

Big Ears gave a speech yesterday on Syria and only used the word “I” 31 times. He used “me” or “mine” only 5 times.

On the serious side the Syrian state controlled paper published an article talking about the “historic American retreat”. To put it very plainly, the Syrians didn’t rub his nose in the pile of shit he has made, they drove his whole head into it and let the entire world know. The thing has gone from comical to very serious. The Syrians are not going to back down which means Obama must either act or show the entire world how irrelevant he really is. As narcissistic as he is, I think he is going to order a hit if Congress does not authorize the use of force. Big Ears is on record as saying “he believes that he has the authority as Commander in Chief to carry out military action without specific Congressional authorization”. Looks like the great Constitutional scholar forgot to read Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist Paper #69 that contrasts the authority of the president in the new Constitution with the authority of the British King.

Reagan and the Bush’s were not conservative and Carter , Clinton, and Obama are not liberals

Who said the following?

Government cannot solve our problems, it can’t set our goals, it cannot define our vision.

Government cannot eliminate poverty or provide a bountiful economy or reduce inflation or save our cities or cure illiteracy or provide energy.

And Government cannot mandate goodness.

Ronald Reagan?

No, those were the words of President Jimmy Carter, in his 1978 State of the Union address.

======

And who said this?

We know big government does not have all the answers.

We know there’s not a program for every problem.

We have worked to give the American people a smaller, less bureaucratic government in Washington.

And we have to give the American people one that lives within its means.

The era of big government is over.

George W. Bush?

Actually, that was President Bill Clinton in his 1996 State of the Union address.

And HERE is how we get NASA funded.

Listen up birthers!

Because this is how you are going to help America.

Instead of clinging to an outdated theory with no motive or evidence. I will give you something better.

You still get to make shit up. And it still involves a threat to America. Hell, you even get an entire country of people to be suspicious of.

I could probably even provide you with raw material information if I spun things in the right direction.

We will develop a rumor that...

China is going to put a military base complete with a particle beam weapon on Mars.

NASA will be fully funded in a month.
The plans will be finished before the funding comes through.
It will attract scientist and engineers from all over. They will come up with NEW shit we need for NEW things! Which is called INDUSTRY! And we will build these things in FACTORIES! Which are manned by people with JOBS! Those people with jobs BUY other shit we build. Which fuels an ECONOMY.

We will be on Mars in under a year. We will design new spacecraft with new propulsion systems and new technology for this new FRONTIER!

The improvements we make and technologies we develop will enhance all current products... such as automobiles, cell phones, computers, architecture, agriculture, medicine, robotics, you name it... we will affect it.

And then... and this is the real beauty of the whole thing...

PRIVATE industry takes over and we move on to INNOVATING for the next frontier.

And you birthers can revel in the fact that although you will probably remain unsung. You will have saved America.

And THAT is the best idea I came up with all week.

Side note Birthers....

Particle beam weapons are very real and have been for some time. We have them. China has them. It isn't like you are trying to prove that something doesn't exist... like a birth certificate.

Just wanted to make that clear so you didn't think you had to sell something impossible.

I am tellin you guys...

I will make this easy for you.

I don't know who he voted for, but he won in 2000. The Bush-stacked Supreme Court decided otherwise. In 2004, GWB seemed to have won fair and square and seems to me the "sheeples" (GB KFC tm reg'd) did not complain for the following 4 years as to his 2000-2004 election "victories".

China’s “DEW (Directed Energy Weapons) research (is) part of a larger class of weapons known to the Chinese as ‘new concept weapons’(xin gainian wuqi), which include high power lasers, high power microwaves, railguns, coil guns,(and) particle beam weapons,” Stokes said.“The two most important organizations involved in R&D; of DEW are the China Academy of Sciences and the Commission of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (COSTIND).”

To underscore Beijing’s fixation with laser weaponry, the Hong Kong Standard reported Nov. 15 that the Chinese have developed a laser-based anti-missile, anti-satellite system.
