"Dempression” (Democrat + depression) was used in November 2008, meaning a depression (usually among Republicans) caused by the election of Democrats. “Dempression” was used in November 2006 and in July 2010 (by Purple Avenger on the conservative blog Ace of Spades HQ) to mean an economic depression caused by the policies of a Democrat administration.

I am DEMpressed
This is just the beginning of the great DEMpression that will last at the very least 2 very long years. The DEMS have somehow managed to use terror attacks on this Country and our President’s courage to send our brave troops into Iraq to fight in the name of FREEDOM as a political tool to gain power over the United States Congress and Senate.

Dealing with Dempression, cures
Nov 5 2008, 09:17 PM
I rarely get depressed, but to day I feel a deep sense of Dempression. I feel empty inside, and in a lot of doubt over what’s to happen. Does anyone know how I can deal with Dempression ?

Local signs of the dempression
Of course there’s plenty of the usual indicators starting to show “the recovery” is about as genuine as the Easter Bunny.
But, there are other more visceral, individually observable indicators I’ve been seeing out in the street indicating not just a “slowdown” of business associated with typical recessions where only the really weak go under, rather wholesale devastation of long standing medium sized businesses to the point where they’re closing up shop. Obviously, its much easier to ramp an existing business than to start a new one from scratch.

The first rule of the Dempression is, you do not talk about the Dempression
The second rule of the Dempression is, you do NOT talk about the Dempression!
Since IT can’t be talked about or mentioned, one must perform a little kabuki dance around IT when talking about IT.
