    Get it yet? Liberals have no business in charge of Congress
    Very selective. Now let's review ALL of George Bush's 2 terms, shall we? Since he was the president for the entire 8 years.

    U6 unemployment rate when he started:

    7.3%

    Labor force: 144 million

    underemployed:

    10.5 million

    U6 unemployment rate when he finished:

    14%

    Labor force: 144 million

    underemployed:

    21.6 million

    In Bush's 8 years, Bush lost
    11.1 million to underemployment, the U6 unemployment rate nearly doubled from 7.3% to 14% as Bush dumped 22 million underemployed people on Obama ....

    Those are the results you are shaking your pom-poms over.

    How about some details and context here. Federal Jobs, State jobs, local jobs? You do realize that TX is the home of U.S. Military bases including Ft. Hood from which many come to before being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Not sure what your point is because the chart doesn't tell a lot. What was the base and how many jobs does that entail. Not sure what that has to do with the thread topic but you obvious think there is a reason to post the information without detail.

    The point is these numbers came from a Republican Congress and a Republican President instead of a divided govt. including a party that had more interest in regaining the WH than in creating jobs. You really do have a bad case of BDS, seek help. You cannot change what happened and what you perceived happened during the Bush term but you can change what is going on right now and the Obama disaster. That would be more productive than what you are trying to do all because your ego won't allow you to admit that you made a mistake in voting for Obama and the disaster that he is.

    I posted the numbers to show job losses and job creation with a Republican President and Republican Congress. None of which have anything to do with the thread topic but it does destroy the lie that Bush had a Republican Congress most of his term and that Bush had job losses throughout his term. He only had job losses during the Clinton recession and 9/11 and then with Democrats in control 2007-2008. Sounds very similar to right now with a Democrat Congress the first two years of the Obama Administration

    most
    –noun
    4. the greatest quantity, amount, or degree;


    ... as in, more than half.

    Now then, about your apology for falsely claiming I lied . . .
