    It just goes to show that no matter how well Obama does, it will never be enough for these people.

    How many more became discouraged in January and thus weren't counted? Keep buying the media spin.

    And what spin would that be? Don't hear the media talking about discouraged workers do you? Any idea what a discouraged worker is and if they are counted as unemployed? Sorry to see those pesky little facts get in the way of the love affair you have with the empty suit in the WH

    The BLS keeps track of discouraged workers...

    I was already paying for other peoples' healthcare. Maybe Obama's way will be cheaper.


    You've already stated you would vote one of the FBI's most wanted terrorists over Obama. That's all anyone needs to know about your agenda.


    When you voted for Bush, there were an additional 4 million people lost to underemployment. Now you complain because there are an additional 1 million. Again, it speaks to your agenda.
    I do feel sorry for you, Sheik, I really did think you were smarter than this. You really don't understand leadership or personal responsibility. When I voted for Bush the GDP was more than double what it is today, we had a growing labor force, and no trillion dollar deficits.

    Again, I think Obama's doing a decent job, I have no problem there. I throw Bush in the face of those who complain about Obama while applauding Bush.

    yes, they do and they aren't counted as unemployed plus they are more than double what Bush had as an average. Add those discouraged workers and others dropping out of the labor force and see what the Obama unemployment really is. you said I was adding my own spin so what spin is that?

    You have shown over the past few months that you have no idea what a decent job is because in your world results don't matter. 4.6 trillion to generate these kind of results is a disaster that will resonate when interest rates rise.

    Yes, discouraged workers are counted in the U6 rate.

    Under Obama, the U6 rate has increased 0.9 points, an increase of 6% which equates to roughly 1.4 million additional underemployed.

    Under Bush, the U6 rate nearly doubled, increasing 6.9 points, an increase of 95% which equates to roughly 11.4 million additional underemployed.

    G'head ... tell the forum again how much better Bush performed than Obama.
