    Of course you did because rhetoric trumps substance. Only a liberal would believe that four years later the results were still Bush's

    The point is, there are many reason why the LFPR rate is dropping -- and in many cases, it's by choice.

    In many cases it's because companies are outsourcing more. In many cases, it's because technology is replacing people.
    Of course it's by choice. No one is forced out of the labor force, but that's not what you posted. The argument you attempted to make has no credence...

Wow!! Now wonder we are in a mess as liberals have such low standards
    Is it Conservative compassion to vote a 5th time for the president who nearly doubled the debt, nearly doubled unemployment, and added almost 12 million folks to the un/underemployed/discouraged column?

    According to you, that is Conservative success.

    Try and pay attention. The post I responded to was talking about baby boomers.

    That is what I responded to. It's not my fault that you took my post to mean something other than what I posted.

    Again, I never said retiring baby boomers are the only reason for the LFPR drop. But there is no question that is one of the factors contributing to driving it down.

    So says the poster who supported only the second president in U.S. history, other than Herbert Hoover, to add 12 million people to the un/underemployment line.

    Cry me a river, Con.

    You posted the response. How else is it supposed to be taken, unless you change your responses based on the criteria you noted? I'll ask you once again. If there are so many retiring that you believe are contributing to the decrease in the LPR, where did the jobs they left go?

    You have a bad case of BDS as well as a selective memory.

    All that was in the post I responded to was about baby boomers. So I responded to the point about baby boomers. Just because I didn't mention any of the other reasons for the decline in that particular post does not translate into me claiming that retiring baby boomers represent 100% of the decline.

    What part of that is confusing you?

    Is there any fallacy in what he posted?

    Translating your answer to my question: "Yes."
