    Exactly right, booming economic growth due to liberal economic policies. Liberals have such low standards that 1.6% probably exceeded their expectations.

    Nonesense, Obama didn't get sworn into office in March, 2009. That's when the trend began turning.

    As usual, you demonstrate that you have no idea what you're talking about. For your edification, the "not in the workforce" figure plays no part in calculating the unemployment rate.

    Now ya know.

    The issue is, should more federal money be spent on whatever-the-****, or should less?
    That's an understatement.

    This silly blame game is due in part to people like Conservative, whose entire existence seems to depend on it, and on the fact that the nation elects people every few years and kinda has to go through a partisan blame game to make a decision.
