    This chart (absent the overlay) was provided by BLS -- your go-to source. Either you believe them or you don't; you can't have it both ways.

    The reason for the net job loss is obvious from reading the chart. EVen though we were losing fewer and fewer jobs each month under Obama, we were still losing jobs. If you're in free fall and you pop a parachute, you don't stop immediately. You have to slow the descent before you can stop it.

    Unmitigated hooey.
    2001-2011, the tax cuts "cost" $1.5-1.7T, or $150-170B yr.

    As everyone knows, Obama is not responsible for the spending he inherited. When he took over there was a $1 trillion+ deficit that he couldn't do anything about.

    Then post the link and before you do check the description. There weren't 400,000 jobs created in May 2010 and you ought to know that.

    He is NOT responsible for the DEBT he inherited but he is responsible for the deficits he accrued. Now we can argue how much of the 2009 deficit was Bush's and Obama's but what cannot be argued is the fact taht 2010 and 2011 deficits are all Obama's. You keep ignoring that reality just like you ignore the supplementals that he added to the 2009 budgets.

    I've already addressed that issue. Now the issue is your accuracy.

    Yes, there were 400,000 jobs created in May 2010 -- actually 431,000 to be exact. Of course the majority of those were for the census, so it wasn't a true reflection of the broader economy.

    I'll ask it again, are you blaming Obama for these job losses?

    No, he is NOT responsible for spending that was locked in before he took office. Doesn't matter how many times you claim otherwise.

    25 million unemployed and under employed Americans, 65+25=90
