    and so little interest on your part to learn anything, hardly random but quite telling especially the 9.36% number and declining labor force. Obama has it figured out, get more people to drop out of the labor force and continue to drop the unemployment percentages

What these people want to ignore is that those people are no longer counted as unemployed thus reduces the rate. Great news for Obama? Hardly and here is another example why.

    Labor Force Statistics from the Current Population Survey
    Original Data Value

    Series Id: LNU05026645
    Not Seasonally Adjusted
    Series title: (Unadj) Not in Labor Force, Searched For Work and Available, Discouraged Reasons For Not Currently Looking
    Labor force status: Not in labor force
    Type of data: Number in thousands
    Age: 16 years and over
    Job desires/not in labor force: Want a job now
    Reasons not in labor force: Discouragement over job prospects (Persons who believe no job is available.)

    Notice the discourated workers who aren't counted either. Obama has adveraged over a million a month that stopped looking for jobs, are discouraged and not counted. The real rate is 9.3%

    If he was able to run against Obama it would be a fifth time. It would be great to see a leader again.

    It's because of people like you that we have the 22nd Amendment to thank for the survival of our nation.

    Because of people like you we need a litmus test to qualify to you to vote. You bought the rhetoric and continue to ignore the results. That says it all.

    So I am told, the results however tell a different story as well as basic civics. Too bad results and civics are foreign to you
