    What part of that is confusnig you?
    Yes, you did later attempt to clarify, but it made no sense either. Why are you avoiding the basic question?

    Do you deny that labor force participation is at an all time low? BHO would preside over 10% unemployment if he had not succeeded in driving so many people out of the work force.

    Interesting but beside the point. The important fact is that labor force participation is at an all time low, the only reason BHO is not presiding over 10% unemployment.

    Your question is based on the false premise that my belief is that their jobs are not being replaced.

    In many cases, their jobs are being replaced by others younger than them with enough experience to replace them; who in turn, are then replaced by others even younger. And so on. The jobs not being replaced at a pace fast enough to increase the LFPR are in the youngest category, who are by and large, choosing school.

    Again ... so sayeth the supporter of the president who nearly doubled the debt, nearly doubled unemployment, and added almost 12 million folks to the un/underemployed/discouraged column?

    Apparently, that's your idea of leaedership. Though you may be right in that regard as Bush did lead the economy right into the toilet.

    Do we really need more evidence of your delusions?

    Better to stay in school and live off mom & dad if there are no jobs to be had. Maybe that's why so many boomers are still working?

    So, it's your contention, that choosing schooling is the driver for the LPR? How do you explain the unemployment rate? I'm finding it difficult to keep track of the excuses given for our current, poor economic performance...

    No, wouldn't deny that at all, but that because of demographics, it looks like more collage aged people are going to school. What is your evidence he is driving people out the work force?
