    You point out that in Obama's first 36 months in office, the unemployment rate has increased from 7.8% to 8.3%, an increase of 0.5 percentage points.

    Now here's the challenge .... are you ready ... ? Name for me the Republican president who did better than that at the 36 month in their presidency. Just one name will do.

    Thanks in advance.
    I actually don't care what the unemployment rate is. I just look at the raw numbers.

    Sheik is too smart for this or at least thinks he is. Discouraged workers, marginally attached workers, others that have dropped out of the labor force don't matter to him nor do the projections his Administration gave the country when selling the stimulus. What was the unemployment SUPPOSED to be three years after it was implemented? Simple facts always get in the way of an ideologue

    I was going to suggest you vote Republican if you lean right or Democrat if you lean left since in cases where neither side offers a decent candidate, it comes down to USSC picks. But in your case, I suppose that doesn't matter.

    So ... how's that challenge coming along. ... ? Have you found even one Republican president who's done a better job with unemployment during their first 36 months in office yet?

    Just one will do. I mean if Obama sucks as badly as the right claims, surely you can find at least one Republican president who's done better than increasing unemployment by 0.5 percentage points? Right??

    The Raw Numbers:

    130 million jobs in December, 128 million jobs in January, give or take a couple hundred thousand either side. But when the seasonal adjustments take place, there is a gain of 200, whatever they're reporting, 33,000 jobs. Now, what's happening is the labor force is shrinking. There are fewer jobs.

    2 million jobs were lost!

    What you want to ignore and focus on is comparing apples to oranges. Reagan didn't have the benefit of pullling discouraged workers out of his unemployment numbers like Obama had therefore the Reagan numbers are much better than the Obama numbers but you will continue to ignore reality. Discouraged workers were eliminated from the official unemployment rate in 1994 but prior to that were always included

    By the way how are you coming on comparing GDP in 2011 vs. 2010?

    As stated, that question was already answered.

    Do you have normalized data for years prior to 2005, if you can send that over, that would be great.

    Thanks in advance.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
