according to the BLS and the Census, somewhere around .83% job growth while the population grew 7.8% during Bush.
so since you're so in the 'know' tell us about Obama's numbers.
Yeah that's why the unemployment rate was 4.5%. You know during the Bush years I had people begging me to come work for them. Offering a lot more money too. There just simply wasn't enough people to fill the jobs that were available. There is a big difference in not enough people to fill the jobs and not enough jobs for all the people. I remember the want ads being 4 or 5 or even 6 pages. Now what page, page and a half? You're lying to yourself and believing it.

Thank goodness Obama gave President Morsi U.S. fighter planes and tanks while he's killing Egyptians and threatening Israel.
Something just isn't right here.
yeah, something is wrong.

Obama also gave jets to Israel. and gave money for the Iron Dome.

“I can hardly remember a better period of American support and backing, and Israeli cooperation and similar strategic understanding of events around us,” the defense minister, Ehud Barak, said last year,“than what we have right now.”

Don't you read your own posts?
<Quote DBWriter, "Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to all the Republican legislation that made the government fiscally sound."
You make the case that it's congress that drags the president to a fiscally sound government. Then you ask the question why can't the president drag congress.
Can't have it both ways.
Of course he can have it both ways; its how the authoritarian submissive brain functions. You can think of the brain as being compartmentalized, you get a piece of information and it goes into a compartment. In a healthy brain if there is conflicting information in two compartments they are bridged by some form of reconciliation, usually rationalization or rejection of one of the bits of information. In the severely malfunctioning authoritarian right-winger's brain the conflicting information is maintained as two discrete entities which can be switched on and off as the situation dictates. Orwell labeled this phenomenon "Doublethink" when the science behind it was in its infancy.

Last week, the investor Edward Conard, author of a recent book glorifying the ultra-wealthy, addressed the Republicans’ Clinton problem in a commentary in The Wall Street Journal. He said that the boom of the 1990s was the result of Internet-driven growth and that President Clinton was just lucky that it happened on his watch.
Maybe so, but Mr. Conard left unexplained why the budget went from a large deficit to a large surplus simply because of the Internet or why the big tax cuts on the rich he favors failed to raise growth one iota in the 2000s.

The erroneous claim that tax cuts are always stimulative can only be made with your back towards history.

Pat Buchanan with my fav of the day...

Will the GOP Surrender on Immigration?

...A graduate of the Saul Alinsky school, Obama can smell the defeatism in the Republican Party. And he knows how to treat supplicants begging for a fig leaf to cover the nakedness of their capitulation...

HERE THE SKINNY: CAPITAL ONLY APPRECIATES WHEN THERE'S POPULATION GROWTH. WHEN THERE'S POPULATION GROWTH THE QUALITY OF LIFE DIMINISHES FO' EVERYONE. THE TWO CONCEPTS: APPRECIATION OF CAPITAL AND QUALITY OF LIFE ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. AFTER ALL, YOU DON' "MAKE" MONEY, YOU GOTTA TAKE IT FROM SOMEBODY AN' WHEN YOU DO HE BLOW UP YOU EMBASSY. ONE OR THE OTHER CONCEPT GOT TO GO. LEARN TO FUCK FO' FUN, NOT FERTILITY.

thanks. i thought the consistently high unemployment rate was due to Obamanomics and companies not hiring due to fear of the unknown with Obamacare and excessive new federal regulations.... now we know it is because Americans just don't know where to find employment ads.

Population level rising at 0.899% yearly. Employment level growth is at 0.228% yearly. That means the population is growing three times faster than jobs. Y'all just keep believing the lies.
