I don't get why the recession is said to start in the 4thQ of 07 other than to blame Bush. The 3rdQ of 07 and the 1stQ and 2ndQ of 08 were positive and unemployment in the 2ndQ was under 5%.

The economy started its slide once Obama became the Democrat's nominee and accelerated once he got elected.
