If you can't read between the lines and see that this number reflects just those that are unemployed and does not relect those that have given up looking for work and are no longer counted you are as dumb as what Republicans have been saying all along. A true number is more like 19 per cent. But don't bet on the Obama media to tell the American people the truth.

I'm not hard of hearing. Or maybe thats you trying to get Obamas pubic hairs off your tongue.

7.8 compared to 8.0. Thats a real game charger. When Bush was at 5.0 he was a failure.

If this were a Republican administration, they would be filling their pages with stories of poverty, homelessness and hunger. Those stories arenít convenient when you have Barack Obamaís election at stake.

If Obama was doing so great as president why is he out spending Romney for relection?

We all know why. And liberal loons do too.
