    Maybe so but the reference to the 1936 campaign bears no association to tree’s point:

    His claim was to the 1932 period when he specifically stated ‘when Hoover left FDR’. Does this make sense?

    What country are you in??

    I click on the portal seven link and nowhere does it show the unemployment rate is 15.5% ... and quoting Jerome Corsi, the biggest Birther in the nation, as claimin "real unemployment" is higher than what the BLS reports is beyond ludicrous.

    What is ludicrous is to continue to accept the Obama smile and rhetoric as fact and ignore what he is actually doing. I can see why Obama supporters accept what he is doing because that is the only way they can survive. Someone like you however with your superior intelligence certainly ought to know better and actually see through the Obama lies. I have to believe much of what you do is an act because you are too smart to buy all the rhetoric

    portal seven shows the U-6 at 15.1%

    Bush's record was worse in many ways and yet you accepted and supported him and his results. You are in no position to judge others.

    Yet with a record of obama's worse than Bush's in many ways you are going to vote to re-elect him? Sounds like a hypocrit to me. I will take the Bush record in a heart beat over the Obama record his first three years. At least we had a growing labor force and over half the number of discouraged workers along with the following GDP Growth


    GDP Percentage growth

    I II III IV
    1.7 3.4 6.7 3.7

    you are so right 15.5% is much, much worse than 15.1%. When confused with facts you knit pick which only makes you look worse

    Hey, you left out ... Twin Towers, destroyed. Pentagon, bombed. 3,000 Americans killed. Invaded a country over WMD they didn't have. 3 million private sector jobs, gone.

    Those were the results you voted for.

    This is who you are going to vote to re-elect. Your Bush derangement syndrome is a serious disease, seek some help

    Jan-09 Jan-12
    Unemployment 12049 12754
    Discouraged 734 1059
    Private Sector Emp 133563 131900
    Labor Force 154236 154395
    Total Employment 142187 141637

    Obama today has a net job loss
    Obama today has a declining labor force
    Obama today has fewer people employed than when he took office
    Obama today has almost a million discouraged workers which he has averaged over the past three years
    Obama today has a U-6 unemployment of 15.2% or 24 million unemployed/under employed Americans
    Obama today has added 4.6 trillion dollars to the debt in 3 years
    Obama today spent over 842 billion in a stimulus plan that failed
    Obama today has a higher misery index than when he took office
    Obama today has participated in crony capitalism and wasted billions of taxpayer dollars trying to pick winners in the private sector
    Obama today has promoted class warfare and demonized individual wealth creation
    Obama today has seen record numbers in poverty and record numbers of people on food stamps
    Obama today still claims he brought this country back from the brink of financial collapse when TARP did that and it was Bush's legislation
    Obama today claims he saved the auto industry by taking over GM/Chrysler ignoring that Ford took no bailout money nor did any other Auto Manufacturer. Taxpayer losses will be in the billions
    Obama today has wasted the repayment of TARP and never used the money to pay down the deficit
