Mr. Ricker (The Inbox, June 17) is correct that to judge anything one needs a benchmark. Since the Great Depression there have been multiple recessions. If one compares the recoveries from these recessions, the (recovery) from the 2007-2009 Recession has been the slowest. It has lasted longer and has produced fewer jobs than any recovery since the Great Depression. One can quibble over statistics, but the fact remains that the Obama Administration’s handling of the (Bush) recession has been inept, frequently counterproductive and wasteful of taxpayer money. To give Mr. Obama four more years to continue his policies that have given us the slowest recovery in 70 years would be foolish and dangerous.
