How the parties perform in office

I'm a little late to this party, but kudos to the folks at the Liscio Report for creating so many interesting graphs demonstrating how the U.S. economy performs when each of the two parties controls the White House. As they note, Democratic presidents overwhelmingly out-perform Republican presidents in terms of job growth, GDP growth, erasing deficits, stock market growth, and reducing economic inequality. Republicans only beat Democrats in the rate of return on bonds. Woo hoo.
