Then let's learn from a non-lunitic: how did the unemployment drop .3% when the U-6 unemployment figure didn't move a notch? Please explain.

Maybe because U-6 numbers include people who are already working.

No, because the U-6 number is an actual figure--not calling people on the phone and asking them if they are working.

Only part-time. But the real difference is the U-6 number is the actual number of people not working. The other unemployment figure includes people who quit looking for jobs. In other words, the economy is not getting better and is still at the slowest growth rate in decades.

First off, she was a first term Governor who didn't know how to handle the situation. Secondly, if you read that Washington Post link, you would find out it was a power struggle. When you call for federal assistance, the federal government takes over. According to this source, she wanted the federal government to help, but her run the show. She feared people would look at her as a weak leader.
You have no credibility.
She was first term and Brownie was first term.

Where do you get that the federal government takes over in an emergency? They work with state officials. What the federal government wanted to do (How many of these things had "Brownie" been through?) was take over. But before that and after that they did not.

When did you show that I did not prove you wrong about your assertion of the request and approval of a federal emergency? It is you losing credility here, not me. The federal government works off of and supports the states emergency plan.

I never said she didn't want a declaration of federal emergency. What I said is that she didn't make a request for troop assistance. That was clear with her mic mishap when she thought it wasn't on. She was trying to make the excuse that she assumed federal assistance would be on it's way. She knew darn well she screwed up.

When you request federal help, you let them come in and get out of the way. You can't have two chiefs running the show. The feds know how to handle a disastrous situation. the governor doesn't. Yes, the governor assists in any way she can, but she can't be telling the federal troops and emergency crews how she wants things done. Let the experts handle that situation.

That was after you had mentioned the request for a declaration from the federal government for an emergency declaration.

And we already discussed he request for Soldiers. She called out the Louisianna Guard.

"Governor Blanco oversaw the massive evacuation of 93 percent of the New Orleans area, and the subsequent rescue effort utilizing state employees, law enforcement agencies from across the state and nation, citizen volunteers and federal emergency services such as the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Military. More than 60,000 people were rescued and removed from the affected region after the storm. As Commander-in-Chief of the Louisiana National Guard, Blanco called on her fellow governors for troop reinforcement as more than a third of her own soldiers and airmen were serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The response from states delivered nearly 40,000 troops to her command, one of the largest domestic activation of troops in the nation's history."

Same source directly before the above.

"On August 27, 2005, Governor Blanco, speaking about Hurricane Katrina, told the media in Jefferson Parish, "I believe we are prepared. That's the one thing that I've always been able to brag about." Later that day she issued a request for federal assistance and USD $9 million in aid to President George W. Bush, which stated, "...I have determined that this incident is of such severity and magnitude that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments, and that supplementary Federal assistance is necessary to save lives, protect property, public health, and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a disaster. I am specifically requesting emergency protective measures, direct Federal Assistance, Individual and Household Program (IHP) assistance, Special Needs Program assistance, and debris removal." Also in the requesting letter, the governor stated: "In response to the situation I have taken appropriate action under State law and directed the execution of the State Emergency Plan on August 26, 2005 in accordance with Section 501 (a) of the Stafford Act. A State of Emergency has been issued for the State in order to support the evacuations of the coastal areas in accordance with our State Evacuation Plan."

FEMA issued a statement dated August 27, that President Bush authorized the allocation of federal resources, "following a review of FEMA's analysis of the state's request for federal assistance. A White House statement of the same date also acknowledges this authorization of aid by President Bush. On August 28, Governor Blanco sent a letter to President Bush, which increased the amount of aid requested to US $130 million."

From Directly below the first cut and paste.

"On September 1, 2005, with reports of looting and lawlessness escalating, Governor Blanco announced she was sending 300 Louisiana National Guardsmen to supplement the New Orleans Police Department, saying, "These troops are fresh back from Iraq. They are well-trained, experienced, battle-tested and under my orders to restore order in the streets. These are some of the 40,000 extra troops that I have demanded. They have M-16's, and they're locked and loaded. When hoodlums victimize and inflict suffering on people at their wit's end, they're taking away our limited resources, or whatever resources we have, to save babies, or save children and to save good people. I have one message for these hoodlums. These troops know how to shoot and kill and they are more than willing to do so if necessary, and I expect they will.[1] This followed President Bush's statement that looters in New Orleans and elsewhere in the chaotic aftermath of Hurricane Katrina should be treated with "zero tolerance."[2]

President Bush, during a visit to Louisiana September 2, 2005, five days after the storm, offered to federalize the Louisiana National Guard to simplify the command structure. The Governor declined, because the Guard would then become part of the federal military forces and therefore lose much-needed policing powers. The President subsequently continued to press the offer so Governor Blanco rejected it in writing, citing the need for flexibility in National Guard operations, particularly the need for Guard in areas other than New Orleans where the military is not currently operating. Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi reportedly declined a similar offer from the President. Had either state's National Guard been federalized, they would not have been able to directly enforce Louisiana state law (i.e., control looting) under the provisions of the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act. It has not previously been a policy during natural disasters to combine the command of National Guard and military operations under the authority of the President."

I hope that helps clear up some of the many misconceptions you have about Katrina and the response.

I don't think there is a dead, solid number on the true unemployment in the US. People have run out of benefits and are not employed, but not counted as unemployed. Many have taken low paying jobs with no benefits. More are employed part time.

What I do know for certain is that 873,000 jobs were not created in a month. So the 7.8 is incorrect.

There is less take home pay.

Prices on everything are higher.

More people are on assistance and they don't want to be. We'll always have the 20% that do.

Rush is brilliant and he has these libs pegged for the clueless idiots that they are.

Thank you Mitt Romney for showing the world how clueless Obama is.
