Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The fact is that FDR was elected in 1932 and New Deal ushered in precisely because the government did nothing (on the advice of the very serious people) for three years after 1929.

So it is entirely possible the opening for a Newer Deal in the US is in 2012, not 2008.
