    Actually, they are simply not actively looking for work and dropped out of the "labor force".

    Some retired...
    Some gave up looking...
    Some died...
    Some won the lottery...
    Some, well you get the idea...

    Receiving "unemployment benefits" is not a factor in calculating the "Unemployment Rate".

    Let me break it out for you...

    No President has ever been re-elected with an unemployment rate over 8%... Current rate is 8.1%.... You can dispute the number all you want...

    LOL

    But, aside from giving you a warm and fuzzy feeling, "real unemployment" is irrelevant to vast majority of voters.

    No I am NOT happy about 15% unemployment as I have many co-workers that were recently laid off and I know many more that cannot find work.

    the smiley face was sarcasm.

    I'll go you one further. I have always said I believe Obama will be reelected. I dont think Romney is a strong enough candidate and I think there are too many blind morons out there that vote party ideology. That doesnt change the fact that there are idiots celebrating in the streets ignoring just how truly bad it is and how truly BAD he is at the job. Celebratory dances over the unemployment rate and people simply falling off the roles and no longer having to be counted is...well...moronic.

    There is one way government can help fix this. They can rewrite our environmental and labor laws. We need to compete against China, so we need our playing field to look like theirs.
