Private sector job creation returned in February of 2010, the 13th month of President Obama’s term. Since then, the economy has added 4.3 million private sector jobs, a 4 percent increase
" them are fine policies"
Just thought you might like some facts to go with that opinion.
If Obama took office with 7.8% unemployment and he increased just the private sector jobs by 4.3 million that means unemployment now stands at 3.5%. I wasn't aware of that or were you not telling the whole story? I think we know the answer.

That's an easy one. Because before Obama took office we were loosing 850,000 jobs month. Like I said we ain't forgetting. You guys wrecked the car. Your complaint is Obama ain't fixed it fast enough.

Not to be harsh, but WTF has that got to do with the truth being the truth?
It depends on which way you lean to determine if it is a half-truth or the truth at all. The site seems to be nonpartisan but definitely not non-biased. They are left leaning and I would not put 100% stock in anything political they might say.

Funny analogy, not a shred of truth but funny. It's more like Obama said he would fix the problem in his first year and then turned around and made it ten times worse. But on the bright side a lot of Muslim Nations like us more because he apologized for how horrible we are.

Really, how did you get the name, you just don't appear to be the warrior type, not even an Amozon Woman Warrior. Maybe in Barneyland.

Obama takes office 7.8% unemployment. Today, 8.3% unemployment. If Obama is "fixing" the unemployment situation I wish he would stop reguardless of how fast he is "fixing" it. You do know that the higher the number the worse the unemployment situation is don't you?

So you admit to speaking half truths, we were aware of it, but it is not often that you admit it.

Social Security tax revenues are being made up with funds from general revenues .

Under current law, scheduled benefits can be paid until about 2037.

No, I do not.

Are you suggestion net job gains, an job gains are the same thing?

To talk about one, and not the other is a half truth?

Is that what you are trying to say?

We both know what your intent was when you made the original post. Thought I would play along to confirm my suspicion.

I doubt if you own a car, a house, or a bar of soap and you want us to believe you own a person, been sniffing the deep fryer again, haven't you Blarney. You might have made E-4 in the military, probably haven't had much more than a minimum wage job since they asked you to leave and you want us to believe you could own someone. You are delusional.

"not a shred of truth"

I would beg to differ with you.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics tracks employment numbers from month to month dating back to 1939.


"In the last six months of the Bush administration, we lost 3.5 million jobs," Biden told the crowd. "As a matter of fact, on that magnificent day … when we were sworn in, before I lowered my hand that day after taking the oath … we’d already lost over 760,000 jobs that month."

http://www.politifact.com/new-hampshire/state...

The data from the last six months of the Bush administration supports Biden’s claim. A search of the job figures from July 2008 through January 2009 shows the country lost 3.47 million jobs during that time, falling from 137 million from July 2008 to 133.6 million in January 2009, according to the bureau’s monthly count.

OK Barn Barn, the Joseph Goebbels of the Democrats. If things are sailing so wonderfully. If the Obama economy is churning along, as you moronically try and convince people of. Why did Bernanke say today another stimulus is coming? come on genius, your unemployed minions are waiting like..well, like a Democrat waiting for his government check.

By stimulus Bernanke means printing money out of thin air. A more devalued dollar and a weaker global financial standing, just what we need.

Have you ever noticed how liberals talk about times before Obama or the future but never what we are currently going through or have been through for the past 3 1/2yrs?
