Liberals keep saying that 800,000 people a month were losing their jobs at the end of the Bush administration?
Obviously I am better than you asked 2 years ago
But over 400,000 per WEEK are losing their jobs now during the Obama administration.

Last week 414,000 initial claims were made for unemployment. This means these people filed a new claim because they recently lost their jobs.

Which number is higher 800,000 per month of 414,000 PER WEEK?

http://www.dol.gov/opa/media/press/eta/u ...
Additional Details
Its per week people: In the week ending September 3, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 414,000, an increase of 2,000 from the previous week's revised figure of 412,000. The 4-week moving average was 414,750, an increase of 3,750 from the previous week's revised average of 411,000.

2 years ago
400,000 per week is over 1,600,000 per month! Which let me see, yes that is a larger number than 800,000.
2 years ago

The liar in chief has done nothing, zero, squat, zip, nada to allow the productive and motivated to create jobs, his every move stifles job creation, ask the coal miners and energy producers.

Now the retard wants to spend over $400 billion dollers we don't have to create nothing except more welfare.

Get out of the way. president Oblamer.

His first book, A Drink Before the War (1994), which introduced the recurring characters
Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro,
won the 1995 Shamus Award for Best First P.I. Novel. The fourth book in the series, Gone, Baby, Gone, was adapted to a film of the same title in 2007; it was directed by Ben Affleck and starred Casey Affleck and Michelle Monaghan as Kenzie and Gennaro.[11] When commenting on the movie after receiving a sneak peek, Lehane commented that "I saw the movie and it's terrific, I wasn't gonna say anything if I didn't like it but it's really terrific."[12] Reportedly, Lehane "has never wanted to write the screenplays for the films [based on his own books], because he says he has 'no desire to operate on my own child.'"[2]
Dennis Lehane will testify that while both Patrick and Angela are old enough to vote, they are fakes...just like Barack Hussein Obama and you two, too. LOL

At President Clinton’s direction, no fewer than 10 federal agencies issued a chilling ultimatum to banks and mortgage lenders to ease credit for lower-income minorities or face investigations for lending discrimination and suffer the related adverse publicity. They also were threatened with denial of access to the all-important secondary mortgage market and stiff fines, along with other penalties.
The threat was codified in a 20-page “Policy Statement on Discrimination in Lending” and entered into the Federal Register on April 15, 1994, by the Interagency Task Force on Fair Lending. Clinton set up the little-known body to coordinate an unprecedented crackdown on alleged bank redlining.
The edict — completely overlooked by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission and the mainstream media — was signed by then-HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, Attorney General Janet Reno, Comptroller of the Currency Eugene Ludwig and Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, along with the heads of six other financial regulatory agencies.

Demorat meddling in the markets caused the mortgage fiasco, they own it 100%

Dishonest right whiners ignore the mounting monthly job losses , nearly 800,000 jobs a month, that was in place when Obama took office.
You people are so pathetic
This is beyond pathetic, it's disgusting, however it's typical demorat policy, trying to get something for nothing and leaving taxpayers to deal with the consequences.

"

In 1999, liberals were bragging about extending affirmative action to the financial sector hailing the Clinton administration's affirmative action lending policies.

Meanwhile, economists were screaming from the rooftops that the Democrats were forcing mortgage lenders to issue loans that would fail the moment the housing market slowed and deadbeat borrowers couldn't get out of their loans by selling their houses.

Bush's White House chief economist, N. Gregory Mankiw, warned that the government's "implicit subsidy" of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac combined with loans to unqualified borrowers was creating a huge risk for the entire financial system.

The New York Times reported that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were "under heavy assault by the Republicans" but these entities still had "important political allies" in the Democrats.

In 2005 the Republican Congress House GOP leaders put forward H.R. 1461, Federal Housing Finance Reform Act of 2005. The bill would have stripped control of Fannie & Freddie from the Housing and Urban Development Department which had turned it into a regulatory farce.

The bill also introduced advocacy provisionsť barring money from Fannie & Freddie being used as a slush fund for liberal lobbying organizations.

The Democrats opposed that measure of the bill even though it passed the House.

Also...

Andrew Cuomo, the youngest Housing and Urban Development secretary in history, made a series of decisions between 1997 and 2001 that gave birth to the country’s current crisis.

He turned the Federal Housing Administration mortgage program into a sweetheart lender with sky-high loan ceilings and no money down and legalized what a federal judge has branded 'kickbacks’ to brokers that have fueled the sale of overpriced and unsupportable loans.

His actions in combination with other factors helped plunge Fannie and Freddie into the subprime markets without putting in place the means to monitor their increasingly risky investments.

Three to four million families subsequently faced foreclosure and Cuomo is one of the reasons why."

So how come you believe Obama's lies and don't believe Christie when people were fired and held accountable?

And what "Christie scandal" am I trivializing?

Or he is just the biggest threat to the liberal power grabbing machine at the present time? Will all conservative candidates be picked off one by one with nefarious and suspicious scandals as well?

Definition U6: U6 is the unemployment rate dumbass right whiners pull out to try to inflate the employment situation because.. well because the number is larger than the typically used U3.
What was the U6 at the peak of the Bush recession?
Besides the fact yur full of crap, just what did you expect republicans to do at the end of Bush's term? Wail and gnash our teeth, render our garments?

Well, stupid?

We know what YOU did after 4 years of Oblamers failures and lies, you voted for him again!

Instead of the most qualified person in the entire country who could have actually created jobs, the proven businessman, Mitt Romney.

Go find some of the 90 million unemployed and give them a job, dummy, and not just a knob job.

Your opinion is based on your gullibility, and it speaks volumes about how easily led you are.

Bizarre, isn't it?
He's missed his calling as a Hollywood Limousine Liberal.
He stands there with
* his hand in the cookie jar
* his pants down
* sh it on his face
* a smoking gun in his hand
* toilet paper trailing from his heel-bottom
* white powder on his nostrils
* a deer-in-the-headlights stare after getting caught in a lie
* racist bile dripping from his mouth's corners
and yet the Liberal media calmly moves on from day-to-day like a thousand Neros playing in a fiddle orchestra while Rome burns.
A corrupt media is much more of a threat and more dangerous than any corrupt politician. They enable the corruptness while dumbing down the masses and routinely go about the business of assassinating the characters of anyone who gets in the way.

And so people start thinking the lies, cover ups, deception and power grabbing is the norm because the media has given it its blessing, and demonizing any opposition becomes a popular and acceptable mindset.

The media in the pocket of those in power never has a good ending.

Did Bush leave Afghanistan? Funny, Doorknob, I never heard of that.

Didn't the liar in chief say al quiada was on the run?

Did they all run to Libya?

Why, yes many if them did as soon as Gaddafi was gone, with Oblamers assistance in the form of missiles that killed innocents, including women and children.

No matter what they call themselves, there are islamofascists in virtually every arab country, the less of an authoritarian leader, the more vocal and visible they are, libs are too ignorant and stupid to realize it. They were lurking in the shadows in Libya and Egypt and Oblamer helped bring them out to maim and murder. Many, many are dead now because of Oblamers actions.
