    And he is. Over 3 million private sector jobs created over the last 2 years of 23 consecutive months of job growth.

    Your vain attempts to saddle Obama with the 4 million jobs lost early in his presidency due to Bush's Great Recession is falling on deaf ears as even as recently as two weeks ago, a poll revealed that by a factor of almost 2 to 1, most people still blame Bush. You can call them stupid all you want, but many of those people will be voting in November.

    Which by November, if the current trends continue, the unemployment rate will be lower than when Obama started and he will be very difficult to beat.

    Yikes, it picked Bush for me!

    j.k.

    But it did pick Hunstman, Obama, and Romney for me.

    Thanks for posting that -- that was fun.

    So you're for a person who's pro-choice. I wouldn't have guessed that.

    That does nothing to dispell the fact that close to 4 million jobs were lost on Obama's watch during Bush's Great Recession.

    I would hope you could comprehend that is the reason Obama leads every Republican running; And again, if the trend continues, it's only going to get worse for the GOP.

    When Reagan became president, the unemployment rate was 7.5%. When he was up for re-election, the unemployment rate was 7.3%. He won in a landslide. Now by no means am I predicting a landslide victory for Obama, but I am predicting he will win if the unemployment rate is under 7.8% by the election.

    Because state taxes pay for the healthcare costs including ER services that occur in the state. It isn't a Federal Responsibility except for the illegal problem

    So much for shovel ready jobs and the loss of jobs in 2010 well after the recession ended. What you seem to forget conveniently is that the Discouraged workers aren't counted as unemployed and are more than double the Bush average. adding the unemployed and discouraged workers together make the Obama results a disaster.

    If obama can get enough people to get discouraged and drop out he definitely could get unemployment below 8%
