    Unemployed teenagers that aren't actively seeking jobs aren't countednow nor are housewives. you really need to educate yourself on the BLS method of calculating the unemployment and employment numbers. Stop playing your game here

    Who said anything about not actively looking for work? Your goal posts are wearing roller skates.

    do people really believe that the economy added jobs? I mean unless they're talking 7 dollar an hour, push a broom jobs, I call bs.

    Here’s the graph is in case someone missed its previous posting and wonder what were discussing. Notice the cherry picking going on? For instance, the overlooking of the first two quarters of and concentrating only on 2010 being on the downside (but still growth) and ignore that all four quarters of 2011 trending up.According to bls the 4th quarter of 2011 was 2.8%.Soooo…

    looks like ten quarters of solid growth outa of twelve to these bloodshot eyeballs. Don’t seem to matter to conservative though.It seems to me that most conservatives would look at this graph and see a positive for the country, rather than cherrypick it for political purposes.

    Sigh. i guess that's wishful thinking. I guess there is some hacks that just cant help themselves. It’s really kinda sad when you step back and look at it from a distance. Take the blinders and look at that graph and tell me honestly how it isn’t something positive, considering where we were three years ago.

    Unless you show proof, your comment is bs.

    I see no real proof that the US economy is adding DECENT jobs. Since I didn't make the original claim that hasn't really been proven, I see no reason to go any further. Believe what ever you wanna believe. And don't worry: the normalcy bias is alive and well amongst Americans. They'll believe whatever drivel the government tells them to believe.

    Learn how to read your own chart, 2010 was about 3.6 percent and 2011 was 1.8%, what is it about liberalism that creates this knind of loyalty. How can 1.8% be positive when it cost over 4.6 trillion added to the debt to create those numbers. Apparently that debt doesnt matter to you? It will when interest rates go up

    Typical liberal, no concept of expense and apparently 1.8% GDP Growth after 3.6% is an improving economy
