    That Gallup poll shows even more job growth than the BLS.

    Over the last year, the BLS shows the unemployment rate drop 0.8 points from 9.1% in January 2011 to 8.3% last month, a 9% decrease.

    Compared to Gallup which show a 1.3 point drop over that same period from 9.9% to 8.6%, a 13% decrease.

    Let's not celebrate sub-standard performance. Please?
    Since you're plucking numbers out of your ass, why stop at 8 milion? Why not 20 milion? 30 million? A big ass like that can certainly take any number you can make up.

    Not so bad.

    That doesn't address the funding issue.

    And SS is no easy tweak. Fixing the problem forever is possible, but it's also political suicide.

    So what say you about my thoughts on the post that you quoted?
    You'll get no neoconservative outrage from me.

    We pay it(the money the gov owes SS) with the money we saved by closing down the European bases.


    And SS is no easy tweak.
    Sure it is, remove the cap from ALL INCOME,

    Obama will be on his second term by then.
    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

    I don't think all the folks working part time jobs when they need full time really care. I need a full time job, but with unemployment in my county of California at 12%, part time is all most can get.

    No, it doesn't. The trend stops and reverses right when Obama took office. The effects of ARRA, whatever they were, didn't happen until months later.

    Now that is a brilliant response as you have no clue what you are talking about. All war spending appears in the deficit. You are confused by the budget vs. actual spending.

    Right, the stimulus package that as passed and signed in February 2009 that did absolutely nothing to stimulate the private sector. Now it is three years later and you want to take credit for the stimulus working? Seems you and other Obama supporters are the only ones claiming success for a three year old program designed for shovel ready jobs that didn't exist.
