Kinda of ironic that a 1% "job creator" is complaining about unemployment....instead of using his tax savings to actually hire people.

Phony outrage.

Why were the wars unfunded, dopey? Congress approaved both, therefore approved funding for them, including a vote of yes by most democrats in the house and senate. Why did things begin to crash after the election of a full dem congress in 2006? How did the President cause their spending spree until 2010? How many democrat earmarks HAD to be cut from obamacaretax after the public outcry about it?
John Murtha late democrat and Nancy Pelosi has gotten more defense contracts than any republican! Try to keep up!

If that is your concern, then Mormon Rich Money isn't the answer. Gary Johnson is

IF that is your concern. But I suspect you are just more anti-Obama than anti-Gubmint.

WOW; 7.6% drop from 10.2% over 28 months… WOW!
I literally jumped up and celebrated when these great job numbers came out this morning… my co-workers laughed their asses off.
Part of me celebrating was because this is great news for the country and President Obama, but the other part is because I knew that this would drive the unpatriotic right-wing nuts crazy; and they didn’t disappoint either, LOL. they quickly came crashing back down to reality after a full day of thinking they had a chance after Obama’s chess move at the debates, LOL.
Uncle Tom Allen West’s Minstrel Show will soon be over when Patrick Murphy kicks his disgraceful ass out of congress.
Sit back down.

The U6 unemployment rate is unchanged at 14.7%.

Idiot! The Bureau of Labor Statistics cannot be reached or influenced by politicians. Others have tried. It's never too late to face the facts, even if they scare you.

The wars were fought with borrowed money. Both parties in congress voted for them due to fraud trumped up evidence about Iraq.
Previous policies or commitments do not end the day one President leaves office and the new one comes into office. Obama has continued some of previous administrations policies.
Are you really that stupid that you think Obama has run up the debt by $6 Trillion?

Hey LEFTY.

His money is invested. Investments are what creates private sector jobs..... ask Bill Gates , ask Mark Zuckerbeg , ask Magic Johnson....ask Oprah Winfrey.

I understand as a LEFTY knowing economics 101 is a sin but to advertize your ignorance on TOPIX is beyond stupid.

Oh well, typical LEFTY. Just another OWS wannabe.

The books on unemployment have been cooked for a good long time. Reagan cooked the books big time on unemployment, and they were often cooked before his time. bush jr brought cooking the unemployment books to new heights. With a real figure of 41% unemployment, he ordered the labor department to report 4.1%. He told them (since he is the head of the executive branch) that anyone reporting bad numbers would be fired on the spot.
Now we are talking about 10% versus 8% when the real number is closer to 40%. Yes it has gotten better than the 4.1% bush had reported, but no where near reality.



We agree that gov cooks the books and basically created different categories so they could pick ans choose which set of numbers suits them best. Meanwhile the People Suffer and the jobs that are taken as the Same Low Paying Seasonal Jobs that always come around this time of year before Black Friday in November.

The country is in trouble and part time jobs only prolong the problem. Obama signing another NAFTA style agreement with more Poor Countries then encouraging Illegals to come over for his Amnesty plan isn't helping either. The Jackass must go....

We need real change.

If you had any higher brain function, you would know that the U.S. president has no control over fluctuation in the price of oil. But then, if shit had wings, it would fly.
