    You blame the media but the BLS keeps track of them and they're available online. The Internet is media thus your premise is false.

    So you think the unemployment rate went down last month to 8.3%? What exactly would it take to get you to vote for someone other than Obama?

    That's the official unemployment rate according to the BLS. I suppose you think you know better?

    the misery index always makes the unemployment rate double DONTCHA KNOW.
    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

    So what matters to a liberal is the 8.3% unemployment rate because it is going down, not the 1.059 million discouraged workers that weren't counted or the individuals that dropped out of the labor force? Thanks for confirming what i always knew, liberals lack compassion and only want to advance a leftwing political agenda.

    Says the guy who prefers an increase of 11.4 million underemployed with 734,000 discouraged workers over a 1.4 million increase of underemployed with 1,059,000 discouraged workers.

    Someone who better aligned with my views; not Newt, Ron, Rick, or Mittens.

    So? That reflects how Bush started with a 7.3% U6 and doubled it to 15.2%.

    But I do admire you using percentages after you said ...


    "He obviously cannot comprehend that reality for to Sheik percentage change is the all important factor, having actual unemployed more than when he took office isn't a problem to Obama supporters since the percentage change is less. ~ Conservative"


    ... apparently, you have no shame.

    Imagine how shocked I am that you use percentages after you insult others for using them.
