I'm talking about the REAL TOTAL of unemployed and under-employed American workers in today's Obobo Economy.<quoted text>
Are you talking about the U6 unemployment figures?
Where unemployment doubled during the last administration but is only about 1 point higher after the current administration's first term?
I'm talking about the collapse in the Labor Participation Rate that started with this POTUS' inauguration, and has continued unabated for 3-1/2 long years of incompetent leadership and foolish policy choices on the economy.
I'm talking about this HARD DATA: http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000
Study that trend carefully. That translates to 9 MILLION AMERICAN WORKERS that have dropped out of the labor force over Obobo's tenure. Note carefully how the Labor Participation Rate - steady at 66%, breaks sharply into decline coincident with Obobo's inauguration in Jan 2009, and continues its nose-dive, crashing through 64% at the end of last year, as we enter our third "Summer of Refcukery" at the hands of these incompetents.
Now these are 9 million unemployed American workers that Obobo has wished into the cornfield and doesn't want to talk about, and you and your fellow Obobo fanbois and apologists are compelled to deny, distort, deflect, and ridicule also.
Predictably lame denials, distortions, deflections, ad hominems, strawmen, and BUSH WAAAH WAAAH WAAAAAHHH!!! IN 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...
PS - Just for you I've emigrated from Canada! Make what you will of that (sound of John's head exploding)
