    And so many are whining about "keeping up with population"....except now.
    So there are more Federal Employees today than when Obama took office, thank you for confirming the actual facts. Maybe Boo will get the message

    Do you have a point, did the unemployment number rise last month? Are there more or less unemployed today than when Obama took office? What is it you cannot admit what the facts show?

You TRY to equate state and local gov'ts to the federal gov't, that is INSANE as they rely on entirely different tax pools for their support. Focus on Obama and his job of running the FEDERAL gov't. Compared to Bush, his predecessor, Obama has DOUBLED the federal deficit, increased federl spending by 20% and OBAMA has left federal taxation basically unchanged, thus the Obama plan is simply endless borrowing and FEDERAL gov't expansion. That is why Obamanomics does not work, plain and simple - this is NOT a sustainable thing.
    I like it fine. It just has more than the first sentence in it. I'm asking you to read all of it, to make meaning, to understand what the article is saying. because what you just wrote is contrary to the that article and the other one. Synthesis!!!!

    You still haven't answered my question. I keep answering yours and will again. Do me the same curtousy.

    Yes, from loss of public sector jobs. This is what you want, right?

    Uh...let me help you with your logic, you said our current POTUS's econ policy is responsible for the GDP results, so all things being equal, all POTUS's econ policies are responsible for their respective GDP results....ie, Bush's econ policy is responsible for the GDP drops during his terms.

    How much of a failure does a Democrat President have to be before the liberals finally acknowledge such ?

    Beyond massive, apparently. Beyond 5 spirals.

    They are intertwined today. Money form one employs the other. But, governemnt is government. Be it local or federal. A big state government is only marginally better than a big federal goverment. Beleive me state legislators amke the same arguments for reducing governments are federal cadidates do.

    He failed by doing what conservatives want: losing public sectors jobs and gaining private sector jobs. Right?
