    Stop lying, Con.

    Jan/2001: 301,000
    Jan/2009: 734,000
    Jan/2012: 1,059,000

    That number did not double under Obama. A 44% increase is not "double." "Double" would be a 100% increase.

    For example, take a look at Bush's number ... at a 144% increase, Bush more than "doubled" discouraged workers.

    You really don't know what a discouraged worker is, do you? There is nothing to seasonally adjust, it is a monthly figure and is what the unemployment number is reduced by.

    Three years after Obama took office and "saved" us from the second great depression 1,059,000 dropped out of the labor force. Think those people aren't in a depression or the rest of the 24 million unemployed/under employed? Where is your liberal compassion or do you just give compassion lip service

    "red flag" challenge!!


    "Right, the seasonal adjustment that never showed a million discouraged workers each month and double the Bush average" ~ Conservative.


    Ruling on the field is ... you said "seasonal adjustment."

    Please stop pretending like you give a **** about those folks. You certainly didn't care when Bush increased the number of discouraged workers from 301K to 734K. And you certainly wouldn't care if that number was 10,000,000 if the president was a Republican.

    The only reason you even mention it 83 times a day is because those million people serve as fodder for your attacks on a Democrat president.

    I'll give you some math kid!

    Bush had 8 years.
    Obama has had 3.

    Looks like it's going worse with Obama....but if you want 8 to be the same as 3, then the wussification of america will accept it.

    What was the Bush average, Sheik? Need someone to figure it out for you? Only a true liberal can say increasing that to 1.059,000 is an improvement over what Bush did. You certainly seem to economically and statistically challenged. Stop lying and stop defending the empty suit that you voted for
