    So with total control of the Congress thus a blank check how do you explain the numbers I posted 2 1/2 years after taking office? Seems you have such low standards in judging the performance of a liberal, why is that?

    Thanks for showing how the U6 unemployment rate skyrocketed 93% from 7.3% to 14.1% under Bush, a 6.8 point increase; compared to Obama, where the U6 rate increased 15% from 14.1% to 16.2%, a 2.1 point increase.

    Yet another area Obama beats Bush in.

    If what you say is true and you care about putting 25 million plus unemployed and under employed Americans back to work then sounds like a good reason to Fire Obama since obviously in your opinion his record isn't reason enough to do that
    Giving the repubs every thing they want is not a guaranteee that they will create one JOB, Ten years of the Bush tax cuts did what? 30 years of Reagan trickle down did what?

    Pres Obama made some critical mistakes he should have nationalized the banks before bailing them out he should have had a big hole dug along side wall street and put wall street in it. He should have pushed any bill through while he had the control of both houses, he should have pushed a bill through making speculation illegal, He is way to willing to compromise, hopefully he is starting to learn that compromising does not work

    Why aren't there people on this thread saying that neither Bush nor Obama did very well with jobs, so lets try a new approach?

    To try to hide your own parties weaknesses and faults by pointing out the other side's faults is pretty lame. Clean up your own party before you worry about what someone else is doing.

    If the opposing party had control of the white house and botched it, and your party took over and botched it too, how on earth can you say your party is better? To do so is simply partisan hackery.

    Yep, isn't that terrible, Obama thought is was so bad that he increased it. Another example of percentage change meaning nothing, real people matter and there are over 25 million of them today not impressed by a lower U-6 percentage change but as I stated, you have a job so no problem. You are unaffected by the Obama economic disaster.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.

    Guess they were having problems finding shovels for those shovel ready jobs that the Obama administration said would keep unemployment from exceeding 8%

    Ten years of Bush tax cuts rewarded taxpayers by allowing them to keep more of their own money. You have a problem with it, send yours back. Reagan Administration created 17 million jobs after almost two years of job losses.

    Why don't you change your leaning to socialist because that is what you are. Obama didn't bail out the Banks Bush did with Obama's support. TARP was passed in October 2008. Guess 14.6 trillion dollars in debt isn't enough for you

    Who's responsible for the 2 million jobs lost in the first 4 months of Obama presidency? In fact the whole first year credit was tied up tighter than a drum, who's responsible for that?
