    Whatever you two... We all know the books on this crap are cooked, all one has to do is look around and see that.

    Problem is Obama want's you to not believe your lyin' eyes.

    Apparently that is the change you believe in and enjoy. The more that drop out of the labor force the better the unemployment rate and the more you give him credit for. Try being intellectually honest for the first time in your life.

    That you even think the number of discouraged workers has anything to do with weekly jobless claims reveals how little you know about the sybject you whine about daily.

    That you ignore the reduction in the labor force, the increase in the number of discouraged workers during the Obama term, and the growth in the U-6 rate is quite telling yet you point out a decline in the weekly jobless claims as if those translated into better unemployment numbers which of course they didn't. Discouraged workers aren't counted as unemployed and haven't been since 1994. your effort to prop up this empty suit disaster in the WH is quite telling. Just goes to show what I have stated about liberals is true.

    Stop lying, Con. I didn't ignore that and I've addressed it.

    On the other hand, you just claimed that discouraged workers impacts week jobless claims, which only serves to reveal how little you understand about the numbers you constantly complain about. Though in all fairness, that became crystal clear the moment you demonstrated you don't know what CPS data is...
