    Do you have a cite to back up you claim?

    Or, regardless, why don't you cite the U-6 number instead if you think that makes your case (hint -- it doesn't).

    YOU might be OK, but most of the country aren't OK.

    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 answered your question and explained how Obama's policies helped me and my family. I believe you don't understand because you don't want to understand. That's ok, Con, doesn't affect me one way or the other if you choose to keep your head buried in the sand.

    Actually you are factually incorrect. Most of the country are not homeless, MOST of the country have jobs, MOST of the country are able to still pay for their mortgages, MOST of the country can put food on the table, and MOST of the country can pay their bills.

    MOST of the country is doing OK.

    Post the U-6 numbers during the Reagan years, thanks in advance.

    Sheik, my head is fully above ground and my eyes open, Obama's policies have been a failure and the results show it. You buy the rhetoric and ignore the substance. you have a lot invested in the hated of Bush and ignorance of the data choosing to post percentage change vs. actual numbers.

    I have no problem with the U-3 rate except when you make the statement that no Republican President had a better performance than Obama especially when you ignore that the U-3 rate in the 80's was different than the U-3 rate after 1994. how about some intellectual honesty from a liberal? Reagan's unemployment, GDP growth, employment, and revenue growth to the govt. were much better than Obama's and the economy worse

    If that's true, then voting him out of office should be a cinch.

    Sure, as soon as you document your claim that the calculation of U-3 unemployment has changed since Reagan. TIA
