8.5 Million Americans Left Labor Force In Obama's First Term

There are 27 comments on the newsbusters.org story from Feb 2, 2013, titled 8.5 Million Americans Left Labor Force In Obama's First Term. In it, newsbusters.org reports that:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released jobs numbers for January Friday showing that nonfarm payroll employment increased by 157,000 and the unemployment rate rose to 7.9 percent. Lost in these headline numbers was another rise in the number of people not in the labor force. This number now stands at a staggering 89 million, up from 80.5 million when President Obama took office. This means that there are currently 8.5 million more Americans not in the labor force than just four years ago.

You as well have bought onto the right wing propaganda campaign by Cheney/bush. This war actually cost America 2 to 3 trillion. Now hopefully come Mar.1st the Sequestor will cut into the giant pork barrell military which is long overdue! One thing is for certain as a registered independent I will never again vote for a damn republican and am sure glad they are going downhill fast.

Yes and folks like yourself need to prepare for 4 more years. Atleast the way Obama is spending money it defineately is tricking down to more Americans than a 2 trillion dollar gross over expenditure by romney and his pack of human wolves. Much of the Iraq war went to overseas bank accounts and companies like Haliburton now based in Qutar so they can hide their evil, selling weapons to any country that will pay them cash. Over 4 thousand Americans died, thousands damaged permanently and not one attack by Iraq on our homeland like the Japanese did in World War 11. You've bought into the mass deception and like those caught up in these religious cults for years, it will take you years of De-programming, but you have to be willing.

Bottom line,republicans, 4 more years of Obama whether yo like it or not. Next time you will present a better candidate than romney, in the mean time all of us(67%) non-republicans won't have to stress out over the next 4 years with An SOB republican president!

Unemployment and the economy doesn't matter under Obama, he should have and should be held accountable.

Again what choice did America have Count Dracula/Bain capital romney or Obama? Off course like I said in 2004 anything, mickey mouse,donald duck, but please not 4 more years of shifty eyed, lip-bitting scumbag bush. America did and the rest is history. So if the Sequestor is going to affect you don'yt blame me. 1more week and less DEA,FBI,overspending military, come on sequestor I'm pulling for you.

What is sad is we have lowered the standard for what is acceptable by our government in the US economy. Future leaders (democrat, republican, whatever)will not have to worry about being held accountable for high unemployment, recessions and failing business.
The real question is do we have a future?
