    Okay, then explain the reasons for both high unemployment and the dropping LPR...

    Oh really? You have evidence that LFP is at an "all time low?" Please post it so the forum can have a good laugh.

    OK. You got me. It's only the lowest since 1979. BHO has done as well as Jimmy Carter. Congratulations.

    So, Obama is the primary cause of the low participation levels?

    His failure to generate employment opportunities has discouraged job seekers.

    What, should he have massively increased govt defense spending and triple the debt, like Ronnie?


    You mean extending the Bush tax rates did not cause massive job opportunities?


    PS....you once again avoided answering the question, is the POTUS the primary cause of low participation?

    So? Many, if not most of that is attributable to people not wanting or not capable of working.

    And by the way, like it or not ... he's your president too (unless you're not American).
