Excellent work, Obama!
Change the denominator. Change the world.
55+ year olds are taking our jaaahbbbs!
i was at the county recorder's office paying my boss' property taxes today; i swear they had people that looked like, and dressed like, and acted like, Wal-Mart greeters.
so, way higher under obama
Holy shit are you serious!!?!!?!?!?
I'm sure glad the GOP never used the exact same bullshit numbers, and discounted people who had been unemployed so long they fell off the unemployment BENEFITS roster, or took shitty part time/minimum wage jobs to merely subsist, which is, and has been for many years, how the "unemployment rate" is calculated. Damn you libtards, DAMN YOU!!!!!!!!!
Damn straight, MT
And after all Dubya did to leave everything in such great shape for his predecessor.....tsk, tsk.....When I was a Boy Scout (insert right-wing pedo jokes), one of the mottos was "always leave a place (camping area) better than you found it", and that's just what Dubya tried to do. Dubya inheirited a massive deficit, raging unemployment, and a "war" from Clinton and Clinton's penis, and he straightened it out and left us a peaceful, prosperous, thriving nation when he left office, only to be undermined by that treasonous Commie Islam Reggie who is Hell-bent on destroying America, just because he's evil and mean. Fuck, I almost forgot, Dubya also defeated Terrorism and brought unprecedented peace and stability to the Middle East, before that Jihadin' Jigaboo Bammy ordered all his Moozlim brethren to rise up......
welcome to politics 101.
You think the BLS is fudging the numbers for Obama? They do this for whoever is in power? You are a bit more conspiratorial than me.
The story is about how these unemployment numbers can be misleading and you post a chart using those misleading numbers? Real unemployment is around 15%. Why don't you plug that into your graph.
because he's biased and trying to promote the democrat position.
same reason republicans used bogus stats for 8 years.
i think the economy will be good in 1-2 years(and dems will take credit), but i think it would have improved the same(or faster) if mitt won
Don't you mean successor?
let's not forget that obama gutted clinton's welfare-to-work program (well, newt's program) to fudge the numbers right when the "low information voters" (hat tip Rush) started paying attention
Well no, I just choose to post the facts about how the unemployment rate is better today than it was at the height of the Economic shit-storm that Obama inherited.
Republicans want to use the numbers when it helps them and bash it when it hurts them.
The hypocrisy is astounding.
so, in other words, it's really no better 4 years after the storm with obama at the helm than it was at the height of the "shit storm"
4 more years!
libs actually believe tax increases will bring back the clinton economy.
rearranging deck chairs on the titanic, my friend, rearranging deck chairs on the titanic
Says who? Let's delve into this.....
Obviously, you will need to show me someone claiming that just tax increases will bring us sky-rocketing up! And....you won't find anyone saying that.....so....let's delve!
