Fudging the numbers so people won't panic. The latest BLS jobs report for July also mentioned that "a large state" hadn't reported its numbers. That alone would alter the overall results.
No one blames Obama for the skyrocketing unemployment after the bottom fell out. We do blame him for not placing blame where it rightly belonged - with both parties - but especially his own party where F&F were concerned and urging banks to loosen lending standards to unqualified buyers.
Did you know 1 out of 4 people between the ages of 18 and 31 are still living with their parents - 5 years after Obama took office and after numerous failed attempts to stimulate the economy?
That's one statistic that isn't fudged and speaks reams about the real state of the economy.
How long is it supposed to take? And how can it possibly get better when Obamacare is making things worse?
And just whose fault is that lamebrain? How many times has the President proposed legislation that would actually put people back to work only to have it shot down by the Republicans? And just what legislation has the GOP put forth to help the economy? no, they've had 40 useless votes to repeal Obamacare at $1.5 million a pop for a total of 60 million wasted taxpayer dollars. And what do they propose to replace it? Nothing we'd just go back to the good old days where big insurance could pick and choose who they cover, weasel out of actually paying for medical expenses and even dropping subscribers who had the audacity of actually getting sick.
I see you're still pushing your damned fairy tale that Fannie and Freddie were to blame for the collapse of the housing market when it was in fact unregulated mortgage brokers who made those risky loans and bundled them up and sold them as equally unregulated mortgage backed securities.
You're an idiot Carol.

"spirali downward" Really.

You are certifiably stupid.

I showed you the numbers. You tried lying about methods & definitions changing.

I am sure your baloney is believed by your feeble minded right whiner friends but it does't fly among the informed.

From your source. Like me, he blames capitalism....

"...As the house prices grew further out of
line with fundamentals, the financial industry
adopted more sophisticated financial innovations
to support its growth. A key part of the story
was the growth of non-st
andard mortgages. Until the boom began to take off in the mid-90s,
the vast majority of mortgages had always been
fixed rate mortgages. However, adjustable
rate mortgages became a growing share of mortgages issued during the boom, peaking at
close to 35 percent in 2004-06. Not only did thes
e mortgages not provide the security of fixed
rate mortgages, they were often issued with below
market “teaser rates” that would reset to
igher levels after two-years, even if interest rates did not rise.... "

You know, Flack, why don't you tale the total employed ( 144,285,000) divide it by total civilian workforce ( 155,798,000) to get the employment rate.(.9261)

When you get that number, subtract it from 1 (get .0739)

multiply by 100 to the the unemployment rate.

What does that mean? It means you're a GD idiot.

Let me know when you figure it out.

Some one must admit to being in charge, usually it is the last elected president.
George W. Bush may be the leader?
Did you know a Pew Research study showed 36% of Americans between the ages of 18 to 31 live with their parents? That's 1 in 3.

No, I won't provide a link. Look it up if you don't believe me.

That's a lot of young adults - and adults - living with their parents.

Wonder why that is LCN?

You forget that at the end of the George W Bush Administration the economy was losing jobs at a 300,000 per month pace. Clearly, a free-fall catastrophe.
