    Do you not understand math at all? 400k jobs out of the 25 million unemployed.

    Second, unemployment payments have been cited in a number of potential job offers we have made, as being preferred at that time to taking a job they arent' jazz'd about.
    Some people are intentionally unemployed. Who really wants to work anyway? Sure a percentage of people love their job, but once you get over the stigma of not working...the lack of "going to work every day" in my experience, is a sweet delight.

    And can you blame them? Pay me not to work rather than take a hard job....that's not an easy choice for everyone.
    It used to be a desperate choice when people had more personal pride and being independent and self reliant were considered to be virtues. Men were actually men.

    Now too many of them are like spoiled children, and the blame for that can be spread around in many areas..

    Wrong, the discouraged workers were over 1 million again and the U-6 rate went to 16.5% from 16.2%. That is total and complete failure.

    I gave you the link the BLS -- tell them their numbers are wrong ...

    And I'm still waiting for you to tell me the name of that book so I can download it and see for myself if your post is accurate or not.

    "Total and complete failure?" But after 32 months in office, he's still doing better than every Republican president. If Obama is a "total and complete failure," what does that say about the GOP?


    Here's a list of presidents, along with the percentage of increase, or decrease, of the U3 unemployment rate after 32 months in office...

    Nixon +77%
    Bush +45%
    Eisenhower +41%
    Ford* +36%
    GHW Bush +28%
    Reagan +23%
    Obama +17%
    Kennedy -17%
    Carter -21%
    Clinton -23%
    Johnson -33%


    * = Ford was in office 29 months

    So then why did the unemployment rate stay at 9.1%? don't you think that 400K job creation would lower the rate? You don't have a clue at what numbers you are looking at but that isn't surprising. You want badly to believe in the Obama rhetoric. Wonder if that is the way you operate in real life?

    Love your percentage change numbers, tell that to the over 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans and then tell the polling placed they have their job approval ratings wrong. Thanks for the laugh

    I agree. Again, this is not a statement criticizing a particular president or party but a blanket indictment of the corruption of military spending.

    400 000 divided by 25 million = 0.016

    So therefore the drop wouldn't of been shown.

    The drop isn't shown because the 400K didn't happen. Unemployment rate is calculated by taking the number unemployed and dividing it by the total labor force. 400,000 jobs created would have lowered the rate but it didn't happen. Please learn how to use BLS and stop buying the lies of this Administration. Hopefully you really aren't that naive.

    Unemplyment number 13992
    Labor force 154 million

    13992/154=9.1%
