    But as stated, discouraged workers aren't counted as part of the unemployed like they were during the Reagan term. Just a minor fact that you want to ignore. Obama's discouraged workers are double Bush's on an average basis.

Obama policies of causing job losses improved the bottomline of companies by causing a reduction in payroll expense. Great job,Obama and typical liberal selfishness
    Sorry, but I can't help you understand how my wife getting a job helps our family economically. That's just one of those things I would expect someone with your self proclaimed business savvy to understand.

    As far as the work force losing 500,000 a month under Obama, that is just another one of your lies. In reality, the work force has increased under Obama.

    What really is frustrating is how people like you cannot defend the Obama record but simply ignore it. Facts never will get in the way of your personal opinion. Seems that half the country buys the rhetoric whereas the other half looks at the facts. GDP 2011 half of what it was in 2010, unemployment numbers higher than when he took office, 4.6 trillion added to the debt in 3 years with another 1.1 projected this year, dictating to the Church what they must do, Federal Healthcare program for all. Those the numbers liberals are proud of?

    Your wife getting a job has nothing to do with Obama and yet you still give the President credit but never place any blame on what he has done. Just goes to show how brainwashed liberals are

    You claim the workforce has grown under Obama. In 5 years since the recession began how much has the population grown compared to the workforce? Nothing is every going to change the mind of a liberal, including facts

    I'm not ignoring it. He brought up the U3 rate. So how am I ignoring somethng when I'm addressing the issue he raised? Should I have changed the topic to the U6 rate to make you happy?

    The the numbers for the U-3 rate are calculated differently from that during the Reagan years, something you seem to want to ignore.

    Obama's trying frantically to get everyone to just stop looking for work, so he can get that unemployment number to 0%.

    That would be success!
