    Stop lying, Con. Those were the numbers at the time of the 2004 election.

    Jan/2001: 10,497,400
    LF: 143,800,000
    U6: 7.3%

    Oct/2004: 14,335,921
    LF: 147,793,000
    U6: 9.7%

    Difference: 3,838,521

    You supported that but now you bitch and moan because Obama lowered that number by only 1 million.

    Exactly what part of that are you incapable of comprehending?
    Since the numbers are monthly, "your" President has done nothing but spend money and get very little return on that spending, another liberal success story

    He lowered the employment number by 3 million with a stimulus program that was supposed to improve the employment numbers, apparently a liberal success story. Your standards really are very low so I can see why you need Obama

    Here's yet another lesson in civics for ya ... if you're an American, he's "your" president too.

    You don't have to like it, but you do have to live with it.

    And for another 3 years, 9 months, and 1 week.

    Who knows what numbers you're making up now?

    Employment numbers are up by over a million on his watch. They're up by over 2 million in the private sector.

    "Your" means you voted for the incompetent, I didn't

    Let me know when we get back to 146 million working Americans for that is what it was when the recession began. You really do have a very selective memory based upon your partisanship

    It was 142 million on Jan 20, 2009 when Obama took office and 140 million when the Great Bush recession was over in June.

    Yes, and Obama was hired to fix the "mess" and the results show today that he has failed. We are almost 4 years after the end of the recession, have a growing population and yet the employment is less than when the recession began and the labor force isn't growing as much as it was during the Bush term. Poor leadership and economic policies will be the Obama legacy. You can defend the incompetent but all that does is make you look foolish and immature.

    Further performance is judged not against terrible numbers but against the numbers prior to the recession. So employment increased 1 million in four years and you want to give him credit for getting the employment level back to what it is today, 3 million less than December 2007? Bet your boss wouldn't think you did that good of a job if you generated those kind of numbers.

    BHO's failure is not to have caused the recession, but to have institutionalized its results as a "new normal."
