    It's actually a post made by someone who registered with CNN, not unlike someone posting here. That doesn't make it a "CNN article." That aside, it's inaccurate anyway. For example, it claims:



    "Forth, it is not working for the forty-six (46 million) million workers that went from the middle-class and are on food stamps under Mr. Obama’s administration and not the Bush Administration, which is the highest rate in US history."


    In reality, there were some 46 million in total on food stamps as of last August. The person who fooled you into believing he writes CNN articles () claimed that all 46 million went on food stamps since Obama became president while the truth is that 46 million was 27 million when Obama became president. Furthormore, that increase of 21 million (not 46 million as that iReport incorrectly claims) is mostly due to the Great Bush Recession.

    Food stamp use is up 70 percent over the past four years and that trend is expected to continue.

    The spike began in late-2008 and early-2009 when the worst of the recession was triggering massive layoffs and home foreclosures. Although the economy has been growing since mid-2009, the pace has been too slow to absorb the nearly 14 million people without jobs. Nearly half of those have been out of work more than six months.

    As a result, the number of people seeking federal help with groceries has been soaring. At this time four years ago, before the recession hit, about 27 million people were using food stamps. Today 46 million get help through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — what most people call food stamps — which is roughly 15 percent of the population.

    What qualifier? A 49% JAR is a statistical tie to a 48% JAR. Have someone explain "margin of error" to ya.

    How in your universe does an economist complaining about Obama's policies answer that challenge??

    Well you failed miserably to prove that the Obama administration was "pumping out 'happy days are here again'," during a "flat month in employment," so I eagerly await your evidence that Brock is a Liberal, no less a "snotty, weak minded, angry" one.

    He "kicked my butt?" How? By posting CNN articles that really aren't CNN articles? Or was it by posting a video of an economist whining about Obama's policies when I actually asked for a quote from Obama or someone in his administration, to confirm jmac's claim they were "pumping up" the economy when job growth was flat?

    But your desperation to best me, even if it's by proxy of those more competent than yourself, is duly noted.

    You think this shows success of the Obama regime? Really? In what world does even 21 million more people now on the government dole (your number) show anything less than catastrophic failure?

    Then your knee jerk is to yet again blame Bush? talk to the hand at this point.

    Well you failed miserably to prove that the Obama administration was "pumping out 'happy days are here again'," during a "flat month in employment," so I eagerly await your evidence that Brock is a Liberal, no less a "snotty, weak minded, angry" one.
    I gave you his bio, and another liberal in this board pbrauer even smacked down your assertion that Brock is anything other than a lib...So deal with it.

    Your previous post belies you. If that were true, you wouldn't have been shaking your pom-poms for jmac as you did while wishing I was running away from his post.

    In many respects, Obama's record is better than Bush's, yet your hypocrisy justified you supporting him. I bet if you thought about it long and hard enough in those terms, you could easily answer your own question.

    Amazing isn't it, in many areas Bush's record is better than Obama's yet you support Obama yet your hypocrisy justifies supporting him? Comparing the average Bush numbers to the Obama numbers in every category the Bush numbers beat Obama's yet you hate Bush but will be supporting Obama? Can you say hypocrisy?

    In the world where the spike is directly attributable to Bush's Great Recession.

    You didn't give me his bio, you gave me a link to wikipedia, one of the least reliable sources on the Internet for veracious information. You're jokng with that link, right?? This is a joke like your claim that a non CNN article was a CNN article, right??

    It's neither amazing nor hypocritical. The difference between the two, which you are incapable of understanding, is that most of Bush's record is a direct reflection of his policies, which wrecked our economy; whereas most of Obama's record is a reflection of trying to overcome the Great Bush Recession.
