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


    I will be happy to do so when you tell me how Bush hurt you and your family that has led to this kind of hatred and using Bush in every thread. You really need to seek some help. What was the Average Bush U-6 number during his first term compared to Obama's?

    Well, with only one thousand discouraged workers in Jan. 2012 (per your previous post), I can't see how he's as bad as you claim.

    Asked and answered.

    Bush adds 11.4 million underemployed and that number was increasing --
    Conservative: "four more years!!"

    Obama adds 1.4 million underemployed and that number is decreasing -- Conservative: "Impeach!!"

    Whats confusing you about the point of my post?

    The reason I didn’t reply to you earlier was that it appeared that you wanted to derail the thread off onto a depression topic and that wasn’t what my post was about.

    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
