I think once Obamacare has gone into full effect and drives unemployment even higher than what it already has, many of those "clueless" are going to grow weary of being told that they have to hand over their money to corporations, even though they are earning less.
Better start soon - 236,000 new jobs last month.

God, I hope your right - this socialism is really getting me down.

Bring on the recession!!!

From today's Huffington Post:
..."And the unemployment rate fell in large part because the labor force shrank by 130,000 workers. Labor-force participation has never recovered from the recession, suggesting either that large numbers of workers have retired early -- or have simply given up trying to find jobs. Frustratingly, long-term unemployment rose, notes the Huffington Post's Arthur Delaney."
In other words, no REAL drop in the unemployment rate.
"The unemployment rate dropped to 7.7 percent from 7.9 percent in January, with 12 million people looking for work. That is the lowest unemployment rate since December 2008, when the rate was 7.3 percent."

Boy, that makes me proud - those are George Bush numbers!!!

You seemed to have missed the part where is states that rate is due to the large numbers that drop from the workforce.

He/she must be unaware of why the unemployment numbers went down.

That was due to government cut backs.

As far as I know, there haven't been any government cut backs yet. There certainly weren't any in January.

I actually read the report in the Wall Street Journal, not Fox News.

In February, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was about unchanged at 4.8 million. These individuals accounted for 40.2 percent of the unemployed.(See
table A-12.)

The employment-population ratio held at 58.6 percent in February. The civilian labor force participation rate, at 63.5 percent, changed little.(See table A-1.)

Among the marginally attached, there were 885,000 discouraged workers in February, down slightly from a year earlier.(These data are not seasonally adjusted.) Discouraged workers are persons not currently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them. The remaining 1.7 million persons marginally attached to the labor force in February had not searched for work in the 4 weeks preceding the survey for reasons such as school attendance or family responsibilities.(See table A-16.)

The couple of times I listened to him, Hannity spent the entire time bitching how much he pays in taxes. Perhaps he should save that money to pay his tax bill. LoL.

Apparently they(R) Are upset the tours have stopped so a couple of them from Fox have offered to pay for it out of pocket. They are even trying to get Donald Trump involved.

But part of the sequester was to cut Secret Service and they have to be there to guard the President during these tours..
