    Better question is why would you support a President that is attempting to convert our economy to the European model?

    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

    You can stop whacking your strawman. I know that U-6 wasn't calculated prior to '94. The point is that the '94 changes to U-3 resulted in a higher unemployment rate relative to the pre-'94 methodology.

    Wrong, unemployment rates are lower than pre 1994 numbers because discouraged workers are no longer counted as unemployed whereas they were

    So what? The U6 in 2011 is still not a comparible measure to the U3 in the 1980's

    What i just showed is that the unemployment numbers under Reagan were much better than the unemployment numbers under Obama. Wasn't that your question, name a Republican President with better unemployment numbers?

    Sure Iím on the field, much to your chagrin. Post #1113 pretty well sent you scrammlin and lookin for a new spot to plant the ole goalpost.
