    Bush increased unemployment 3.6 points (more than any other president except for Herbert Hoover) from 4.2% to 7.8%. Obama increased unemployment 0.7 points from 7.8% to 8.5%.

    You have a serious problem with BDS, Bush isn't on the ballot in 2012 but the Obama record will be

    Jan-09 Dec-11
    Unemployment 12049 13097
    Discouraged 734 945
    Private Sector Emp 133563 131900
    Labor Force 154236 153887
    Total Employment 142187 140790

    Obama today has a net job loss
    Obama today has a declining labor force
    Obama today has fewer people employed than when he took office
    Obama today has almost a million discouraged workers which he has averaged over the past three years
    Obama today has a U-6 unemployment of 15.2% or 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans
    Obama today has added 4.6 trillion dollars to the debt in 3 years
    Obama today spent over 842 billion in a stimulus plan that failed
    Obama today has a higher misery index than when he took office
    Obama today has participated in crony capitalism and wasted billions of taxpayer dollars trying to pick winners in the private sector
    Obama today has promoted class warfare and demonized individual wealth creation
    Obama today has seen record numbers in poverty and record numbers of people on food stamps
    Obama today still claims he brought this country back from the brink of financial collapse when TARP did

    Notice how the discouraged workers increased as evidence showed the stimulus program being such a failure. You do know what a discouraged worker is, don't you?
    Your post confirms what I said ...

    Jan/2001: 301,000
    Jan/2009: 734,000
    Dec/2011: 945,000

    Bush: 433,000 additional discouraged workers (+59%)
    Obama: 211,000 additional discouraged workers (+22%)

    Well, no, for about 54% of people, they still blame Bush for the economy, so Bush's failed policies will remain on the ballot for many.

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Still no guess, eh, Con?

    Why is that if Conservatism is superior to Liberalism, Conservatives can't nominate a Conservative candidate for President? This time it's looking like Romney, the most Liberal among the GOP candidates, is going to win. Last time it was McCain, again, the most Liberal among the GOP running.

    Why is Conservatism so unappealing to the voting population that the right won't put up a solid Conservative to run for President?

    The left put up their most Liberal candidate and not only did he win his party's nomination, he won the White House.

    Yep, I am sure those malcontents, govt. employees, union employees, and minorities looking for a free handout will indeed give Obama a pass for his failures. Interesting how those numbers are changing and why Obama's JAR isn't very good at this point in his Presidency since you seem to believe he has done a good job.

    What part of the ballet can i expect to see "Obama's JAR "when i go into the polling booth next Nov?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Actually, that number has been rather consistant for some time now. It's a shame you can't debate with reality on your side.

    Obama is being blamed for the results today and for the failure to turn this economy around which is quite different for the blame the public places on Bush for the economy Obama inherited. you don't seem to understand the difference nor do you understand that his poor JAR is evidence that it is the poor recovery and current results that Obama is being held accountable for.
