The election of our savior to save our day,
came Bozo Bob on his B.S. sleigh,
improve the economy and bring all a job,
would be the motto of Bozo Bob,
but one year later nothing has changed a bit,
so now we all know Bozo is full of s$%#,
we wonder how this man could close his eyes,
after spending the day spreading all his lies,
so to all that are struggling, wipe away your tears,
because were blessed to have Bozo, for 3 more years.

Merry Christmas to all!

From 2000 through 2007 real GDP grew 2.4% annually and real disposable personal income grew 2.8% annually. The economy added 5.5 million net new jobs in those years. The unemployment rate stood at 4.4% in May 2007, just before the newly elected, Democrat-controlled Congress raised the minimum wage.

From August 2003 through December 2007, over eight million net new jobs were created.

Fiscal year 2007 was the last one under a federal budget written by a Republican-controlled Congress, and marked the peak in real GDP, jobs, and the stock market. The bad economy of the "last ten years" was all in the last three years – under federal budgets written by a Democrat-controlled Congress.

It's going to take more than one year to straighten out the mess the DEMOCRATS have made.

And a Merry Christmas to you as well.

I voted for him because his claim to fame was to support public schools. And as many politctical campaigns go, it seems it was all confabulated.

Take a look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
4.5 million jobs were lost BEFORE Obama took office and while a Republican was in charge. The month Obama took office, the job loss immediately declined and now the economy is actually adding new jobs. That's how Democratic leadership works.
Bozo Bob doesn't have a clue. He says he wants to create jobs, but then penalizes the workers that already work.

You have heard they are calling for snow this weekend right? That's the white stuff that falls from the sky. The stuff your boy is spreading is called a snow job and you have bought into it.

Democrats or Republicans.. they are one of the same. Politicians care about power, not people.

There is no answer to this problem. Power has and will always rule.

I would if the data actually existed! You present the numbers as factual, but then will not provide the documentation. Typical liberal distortion, but people are catching on to your lies and distortions as witnessed by the recent election. But you have a Merry Christmas anyway.

If the job loss declined "immediately" after Nobama took office, why did he want to extend the unemployment benefits two additional years? If Democratic leadership is so wonderful and creating so many jobs, why do we need to extend unemployment benefits?

They needed to extend unemployment benefits because of all the voted out democrates that need it.

You are really sad. Someone says something you don't like, and in your small mind, it can't possibly exist. This was soooooo hard to find. I went to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics website and there it was. No doubt you will say that the computations were made to make one president look bad, or that the compilers were dems, or that inter-galactic aliens infiltrated the government.

Bloods or crips... RED or Blue.... Bush or Obama... Democrats or Republicans.... none of it matters. They are all trained in following the leader and getting all of you to do the same. You all don't talk about people you all talk about groups. Bush or Obama or whoever the President maybe they are just puppets for real people with control.

Thank you for providing a link to the data you referenced. It may be helpful to repeat your original post so that others might better understand.
“Take a look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
4.5 million jobs were lost BEFORE Obama took office and while a Republican was in charge. The month Obama took office, the job loss immediately declined and now the economy is actually adding new jobs. That's how Democratic leadership works.”

As you may or may not be aware, the President has little or no impact on the economy. It is the CONGRESS that passes laws and decides spending. The job losses you cite occurred during the 2007-2008 time frame. The DEMOCRATS were in charge of CONGRESS during this time.
As for “The month Obama took office, the job loss immediately declined and now the economy is actually adding new jobs.” This is just plain hokum. So that we are on the same page, Obama took office on January 20, 2009.(A day most would just as soon forget.) Take a look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics: http://www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2010/03/art2exc.h...

I will quote the abstract from this report,“Employment declined by 4.7 million in 2009, the largest calendar-year job loss in the history of the series (since 1939); although payrolls declined sharply at the beginning of the year, job losses moderated thereafter.”

Now as for 2010, I direct your attention to this report: http://www.bls.gov/opub/ted/2010/ted_20101129...

An excerpt reads:“ The difference between the number of gross jobs gained and the number of gross jobs lost yielded a net change of &#8209;311,000 jobs in the private sector for first quarter 2010.

I think most Americans see past the liberal propaganda and understand how “Democratic leadership works.”

You might want to look in the mirror now to see what "really sad" looks like.

"The job losses you cite occurred during the 2007-2008 time frame. The DEMOCRATS were in charge of CONGRESS during this time."
Your entire premise is wrong. At least you are aware that Congress writes legislation, but the President still gets to sign, and has for more than a century, set the agenda. Can YOU cite an administration that left the President powerless to control a Congress. This is merely your limp attempt to pass the blame, again. The truth is that supply-side economics doesn't work, never has. If it did, there would not be record disparity between the haves and the have-nots.

I also would prefer someone else's analysis of the figures, rather than your clearly bias view. Take a look at the chart, which is all of the web that analyzed the date by month.

And finally, I was an am Thrilled at Obama's inaugeration and can't wait for the re-election campaign.

I really can't believe that you would trust a graph from Nancy Pelosi, especially after you accused me of,"No doubt you will say that the computations were made to make one president look bad, or that the compilers were dems, or that inter-galactic aliens infiltrated the government."
But none the less, it does prove the stupidity of your original post "The month Obama took office, the job loss immediately declined and now the economy is actually adding new jobs. That's how Democratic leadership works."
As for supply side economics, I do not wish to debate someone who cannot get their facts straight so I will refer you to these links.
