    seriously? lol....the economy is improving because obama is doing it for his re-election....lol....good god almighty, you can't get this kind of entertainment just anywhere....and yes, as much as it kills the hard core koolaid drinking conservatives here, the economy is improving, and that bodes well for Obama.

    Not surprising, another liberal who cannot read numbers, the number DOUBLED under Obama and has averaged about a million a month of discouraged workers. That coupled with a decline in GDP in 2011 vs 2010 says it all but you won't acknowledge it

    Wow, are you arithmetically challenged, or what? According the numbers YOU posted, there were 301,000 discouraged workers in Bush's first month, and 642,000 in his last month. He MORE than doubled the number of discouraged workers. In Obama's case, it went from 734,000 his first month to 1,059,000 in January -- a change of 44%.

    And Three years after Obama took office and saved us from the second great recession that was 1,059,000. Is that higher or lower than 642,000? I posted the discouraged workers by month. How many months was it over a million?

    It was an increase of 44%, as noted, as compared to an increase of 113% over Bush's term in office.

    Yep, I originally called him out over his use of unadjusted numbers, and his response was to post more unadjusted numbers.

    Yep, the disconnect is that liberals ignore that the reason the unemployment rate is dropping is that more and more people are getting discouraged and dropping out of the labor force. That must be good news for compassionate liberals.
