    Which is a good thing too since I also messed up by posting a link to total non-farm when I meant to post a link to total private. Here's the new link, along with my apologies ...

    The liberal truth somehow ignores the liberal results, why is that?
    In spite of your phantom “Misery index“ it looks like the American Voters took a look at the clown caravan that the republicans have running and decided that they like Obama better than any of the current small r’s that are running. Got anymore-obsolete numbers you feel like posting for us to look at ?

    <President Obama’s political standing is rising along with voters’ optimism that the economy is getting better, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll, a shift that coincides with continued Republican disquiet over the field of candidates seeking to replace him. >

    <howing steady improvement since early December, Mr. Obama’s approval rating has reached the 50 percent mark in The Times/CBS News poll >

    <For the first time since the election season began in earnest in the late summer, as many Democrats as Republicans say they are more enthusiastic than usual about voting in the 2012 presidential election>

    <Mr. Obama leads all four remaining Republican presidential candidates in theoretical, one-on-one competitions, including the presumed front-runner, Mr. Romney But the president’s general election prospects could change drastically when the opposition finally settles on a nominee, who will likely win an immediate boost of support and enthusiasm, if history is a guide. >

    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

    The numbers you posted are total nonfarm, not total private, which is what I posted.

    What purpose is it to only post private jobs? Do public jobs not count? Why?

    In response to Conservative posting ...

    "Yep, we are reliving the Carter days focused on micromanagement of the Private sector generating similar results." ~ Conservative


    ... I posted the actual private sector jobs to show that Obama's results are closer to Bush's than Carter's.

    Carter (4 years): 9,035,000
    Bush (8 years): -646,000
    Obama (3 years): -549,000

    I think all the confusion came from the orginal link. Moving on.
