The graph at the website tells all.
Obamanomics has this nation going backwards.
Obama has struggled with the economy and obviously cannot get the job done.

What is amazing is how, even in his 5th year, he is not held accountable or his policies (or lack of) are not critiqued.
We are being shortchanged by our media professionals because of their bias and that to me makes them no longer professionals.

I know my brother has been out of real work for 3 years, he does odd jobs for people but if it wasn't for our parents, I don't know.
There are just fewer and fewer jobs.

Get off your lazy azzes young men of America of all races. Illegals do jobs you won't do, it won't kill you to shovel dirt if need be, there are all kinds of financial aid to those willing to learn skills. But as long as mommy and girlfriend are willing to feed and cloth you unemployment will stay high.

And all this started when Obama became President? These aren't kids unemployed, the unemployment lines have all ages and both sexes in them.
Obama's policies do not discriminate by age or sex, you need to open you eyes and see whats going on because you sound like an idiot.

Boy if Bush was still president everyone would be wringing their hands and the media would report on it daily, oh the suffering and misery.
Now, their boy is president and people just don't want to work, yeah right what a crock.

Unemployment has been way too high for way too long. Obama is smothering American business and causing pain for working Americans.
He is not my president and never will be.

No, there are not "plenty of jobs", that is why unemployment is so high and has been for the last few years.
True, Obama is enlarging the entitlement mentality of this nation and has set this nation on a course to ruin

Them stupid democrats live in fantasy la la land, when Bush was president unemployment creeped up over 6% and to hear them tell it people were starving in the streets.
Now since Obama is president, unemployment sure don't matter.

All you young abled bodies get out there and start roofing companies, frame houses,pick some crops, it won't kill you and maybe many of these illegals will leave. Can't find anyone but an illegal to mow lawns anymore either. What's wrong, afraid to get those soft hands dirty?

Building houses? What planet are you on? The housing market is dead.
Only the super wealthy got money for lawn service, those companies are dropping like flies.
You must be a rich man or living off the government cause the working people of America are in hard times, hard times indeed.
