    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?
    The POTUS is responsible, regardless of the primary cause. What BHO did not do was engender confidence, which is what RWR did in spades, and even GWB did better than BHO.

    Not all job opportunities are paid, many of those positions are volunteer jobs they do not add to the economy.

    Approximately 700K public sector jobs have been lost due to shrinking income taxes.

    You keep using this word, but you are ignoring the second most common understanding/use of the word.

    Being the primary cause of something and so able to be blamed or credited for it.

    What BHO did not do was engender confidence, which is what RWR did in spades, and even GWB did better than BHO.
    Oh, confidence fairies, magic dust and all.

    I wouldn't bring W into the mix, his record on job creation and crashing economies is well known.

    If this is a recommendation for following Reaganite voodoo economics, then you have no standing on debt complaints.

    The main reason unemployment is as high as it is, is due to the drop in the state and local public sectors since the recession ended, which lost 700,000 jobs over that period, while the private sector has gained 5 million jobs since then. One of the factors in the public sector drop is lost revenue. The drop in LFPR is due to multiple factors, which include but are not limited to retiring (and dying) baby boomers, sharp increase of those filing for disability, increase of people choosing school over work, fewer jobs available, discouraged workers. These are all factors for why the LFPR has been dropping ... since 2001, by the way, with the exception a brief period from about 2004/2005 until the housing bubble, which is what helped the LFPR during that period, collapsed entirely.

    7.6% unemployment. Lowest workforce participation since 1979. QED.

    And both have done better than Bush. So excuse me if I care not what a Bush apologist has to complain about.
