    …ah, come on, you know, the answer. It’s a good time to be part of the government.

    The next lowest is 4.5% for private education and health services. Oddly enough, the unemployment rate for financial activities is only 6.8%.

    The percentage looks fantastic at first glance, but the historical perspective tells another story entirely.

    You really need to check your facts before posting BS!.

    There were 22,738,000 government workers in December 2007 the official start of the recession. There are 22,390,000 government workers in May 2012. That's 348,000 not over half a million.

    The real numbers are that government jobs are still bleeding. So when are you going to own up to the lie you posted in post #186?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    "If public-sector employment had grown since June 2009 by the average amount it grew in the three previous recoveries (2.8 percent) instead of shrinking by 2.5 percent, there would be 1.2 million more public-sector jobs in the U.S. economy today," said the Economic Policy Institute in a recent report, which included federal employees in the calculation.

    Post I made in 186 stated you libs were attempting to count jobs that never existed as lost jobs by figuring in the historical rate of gov employee growth that didn’t happen. That is the liberal logic that has kept us from recovering economically and following Europe down the road to ruin. What lie???? Read the above quote, even it admits the real number of lost gov jobs is 2.5%

    instead of shrinking by 2.5 percent

    If they're government workers, then they're not unemployed, right?

    Oh come on. It was just as Jon Stewart put it a little verbal 'gaffe'. Gaffes are no big deal...when Obama says them.

    Now...Romney of course followed suit and turned a perfectly good talking point into his own gaffe by attacking policemen, firemen and teachers. But hey...what do you expect. Both of these guys are clowns of the lowest order.

    Which one are you going to vote for?

    Maybe we need to write in Jon Stewart.
