    Yeah, I was wrong as I underestimated the number of Obamabots out there. Those people are getting exactly what they apparently want, dependence on the Federal Govt., stagnant economic growth, high unemployment, and greater debt

    Again, applying your criteria to make the unemployment rate to when Obama became president, the unemployment rate would have been around 10%. So it's still down from where he started. Same as every other metric used to calculate unemployment.

    Every President since Reagan as accumulated massive debt. Nice that you finally noticed.

    Unemployment is not higher than when Obama started, it's lower.

    And what do food stamps have to do with people retiring?[/COLOR]
    What does people retiring have to do with 9 million people dropping out of the job markets ?

    All presidents incur debt, this one has exploded our debt and we have nothing to show for it.

    People with 401ks don't like their investments being devalued as our Fed is literally forced to continue pumping as its actions drive up bond values and asset values.

    Plus forcing of perpetully low interest rates hurts the people who are dependent on fixed retirements.

    You have this about backwards. Bush was 4.3%, Obama was 21.2%.

    Average for Bush years was 8.11, Average for Obama years has been 10.57 thus far.

    Didn't know drone strikes were economic policies?

    And you are getting what you deserve, a bloated federal government.

    All I see from you are your words and assumptions.

    Now whose word should I take on this? The Fed's or some guy on the Internet?

    Hmmm......


    Have a nice day.
    No, you don't have that. For example, the article you linked doesn't mention how many of that half that you call a "crappy economy" chose to go on disability rather than work.

    It leaves you guessing as to why that half left the work force. That half includes people switching to disability, people choosing school over work, etc....

    It got thrown out in favor of Nancy Pelosi's bill (which made it to the president). Maybe it was just a crappy bill and that's why Republican leadership wouldn't put it to a vote in 2005?

    Hey, Con, nice attempt to change the subject, but I never suggested they ran against each other.

    I was just hilighting your hypocrisy for voting for Bush. When he ran for re-election, his record was abysmal.

    You didn't care because results don't matter to you when the president is a Republican.

    And the only reason you care now is because the president is a Democrat.

    Ahhh...no.

    I said the difference in the participation rate since Obama took over.

    Since you are claiming(?!?) that the rate was actually 10% when he took over, then the unemployment rate would be well over 10% now.

    No idea what you are spinning now but the U-3 unemployment rate IS higher then the day Obama was inaugurated.

    If you add in all those people that (according to the Fed) left the workforce strictly because they cannot find work...then the unemployment rate would be well over 9%.

    Sorry pal, no matter how you spin it...the unemployment rate IS worse then the day Obama took over.

    And what do food stamps have to do with people retiring?
    Nothing...and I never said (or even thought) that it did.

    I was simply listing another fact of the Obama Presidency...food stamp usage has risen over 40% since he took office.

    It never made it out of the Democrat chaired committee.

    Are you allergic to truth?

    I have a feeling you never read it. Truth is it was submitted to reign in the corrupt Democrats running Fannie and Freddie.

    How many Democrats including Nancy Pelosi signed a letter sent to tbe Bush White House opposing new regulations on Fannie and Freddie ?

    In 2004 ? Need a hint ?
