Unemployment FIGURES are dropping -- only because so many millions have not gotten work, they have given up and dropped off the enemployment rolls.
Obama set that rate structure up to make the unemployment figures artificially better than they really are.
That Obama is a tricky little Obama.

There are several possibilities for this.

1) People are actually getting employed in adequate jobs.

2) People have given up on looking for a job and are therefore no longer in the workforce, meaning they are no longer technically unemployed.

3) People have accepted the fact that their best opportunity is some sort of trivial job mopping floors and cleaning toilets, so they have taken on these jobs and are no longer defined as unemployed.

In looking at the statistics,#2 and #3 above are the primary drivers of the declining unemployment number. There is less concern over not earning income with Obama as the president. His desire is to use the income of others to provide for those who do not generate their own income. This enables those with little ambition to continue to mooch, while at the same time coring political points for being able to announce declining unemployment rates. It is political posturing and little more. The country is in trouble, but we as individuals don't have to be.

Another Obama manipulation on his fuzzy fro math. This is a joke again , How can economy be better when more people are losing their jobs, As business's are shutting down and laying off people, This is them not reporting the facts that many are no longer receiving unemployment checks. so they leave them out of the numbers they post on unemployment. They also again don't mention that if you put in an application ot apply for a job, They count you as hired and add that to the employment numbers to get to this phony number of 7.7 Obama is now showing. Let's see Hostess just let 18 thousand people go. Why didn't that figure into this new unemployment numbers? Why didn't you also hear that by them losing their jobs This also affected many other business's they may have gone to for lunch. They sure let us know about the auto plants what would happen if they shut down and how many other jobs and companies would be lost didn't they. I guess Hostess just wasn't union enough for them to matter like those big three auto plants in Detroit whose asking for a bailout fro Obama lol.How can Detroit be doing so badly when they got bailed out by Obama and he also gave black Detroit people large stimuless cash .The numbers are false beign that blacks now have a national unemployment rate of 15% under Obama it has doubled. What Obama and his thugs have done is call private sector jobs Govt jobs now to bring his unemployment numbers down.
