Galt wanted to let Bin Laden go. " Oh Well, he killed 3000 Americans so what."
Bush called Bin Laden irrelevant as did Galt.
Remember what O'bama said in his crazy talk Berlin Speech?:The terrorists of September 11th plotted in Hamburg and trained in Kandahar and Karachi before killing thousands from all over the globe on American soil.

What Clinton screw-ups? Do you mean the surplus he left in our treasury that Bush squandered on his unprovoked war and tax cuts for the wealthy?

Let Dumb Dave correct you, he used to say SURPLUS too, but was proved wrong-after 5 years of being as stupid as you -he finally now has lowered himself to the truth. A stinking balanced budget that if the muzzies had not attacked us and the democrats had not loaned every idiot money to buy a house they couldn't afford, maybe it may have worked...

How about the crazed eyed O'bama and his civil war going on in Libya? I always loved this comment O'bama made after the Benghazi attack: In the days after the attack, Obama told the United Nations Generaly Assembly that “the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

When is O'bama going to tell the muzzies around the world to quit clinging to their guns and the Qu'ran?

We are the modern day Romans idiot, We have troops in over 140 nations and if you chickenhawk republicans had their way we would be in all of the other nations also. Obama is the cautious one, Bush and his band of warmongers were the idiots that messed up the entire middle East.

Why are some people so bad at simple math computations?
Perhaps this link will be more enlightening. Also 80% of the jobs created have been lower waged or even part-time since the federal government makes no distinction between full time/part-time.
Job participation rate is at a 36 year low. Additional sources regarding this subject are available through Forbes and Bloomberg websites. Please notice the link is seasonally adjusted numbers.
http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000
You're full of crap Jessup. Here's an article from the Wall Street Journal's Market Watch from July 3, 2014;
"One interesting nugget in the June jobs report was the rise in the number of people who worked part-time.
While it’s a number that flops around from month to month — the standard deviation is 287,000 — it jumped by 799,000, which was the largest one-month gain since January 1994. At the same time, there was a 523,000-person drop in full-time workers, the first decline since October.
“It is unusual,” said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group. But he said it could be noise. And he notes that most of the part-time rise in June was not in those who want to find full-time work but couldn’t, and instead in those who voluntarily opted to do so.
One concern with the Affordable Care Act was that some small employers might opt to get around the 50-person work requirement by replacing full-time workers with part-timers.
That said, over the past 12 months, 10,000 new part-time jobs have been created — versus 2.12 million full-time jobs.
And looking at the survey of establishments, it was high-paying sectors that were creating jobs in June.“These are not McDonald’s, Mickey Mouse kind of jobs,” Hoffman said.“This is a better-quality jobs story.”
Hoffman said he wouldn’t be surprised if the number of part-time workers comes back to more normal readings in July and August."
Job participation numbers are in and of themselves misleading. The age range of 16 and older used by the BLS is pretty damned broad. On one end of the scale there' are the Baby Boomers who are retiring and at the other are younger people staying in school longer to enhance their education and skills to help them find jobs. The days of walking out of high school and getting a job in a nearby factory are gone. Jobs now require additional skills and often involve a certain amount of post secondary education.
This reduced job participation isn't necessarily a bad thing; like any other commodity the value of labor goes up as the supply goes down.

Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.

Representatives of the real estate and homebuilding industries, through their nationwide networks or affiliates, are committed to broadening homeownership. They made the commitment to help meet the national goal we set.

Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.

Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans.
