    Yes, and it does that by destroying jobs elsewhere. If I take a dollar from your pocket and put it in mine, I haven't created any wealth.

    To be fair here, "horrible" is a subjective term.

    Just so I understand. Those who don't work are not unemployed and the libs depend on the military to increase job growth. Got it.

    Just augmenting that, one of the causes of our failure to recover better was the fact that state and local governments shed jobs like crazy, further reducing demand and increasing unemployment.

    Total government jobs were down under his first administration, if smaller government led to economic growth, we should be booming right now. Obviously, your assumption is not correct.

    Those who don't work and aren't trying to work are not unemployed. The military has no effect on job growth as they are not included in any of the statistics.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Yes, they have improved, and are still improving. Obviously we are headed in the right direction.

    My God, how can you possibly see Obama's economic policies as anything but the miserable failure they are?
    I don't have a timeline in front of me, but my memory tells me that the recession officially ended a month or two after the stimulous bill was passed, unemployment started to recover a few months after that.

    Jobs and wealth are not the same thing, and I was just pointing out that the government does create jobs. Whether one thinks they should or should not doesn't change the reality that a lot of people's jobs are government related.
