    Again, you're trying to put 3 weeks ot of 4.5 worth of 793 thousand job loses on Obama. I still haven't seen your explanation of how Obama even had anything to do with the job loses which occurred in that final 1Ĺ week? You avoided that one completely.

    And btw, even going from Dec/2001 - Dec/2009, even though it's adding 2/3rds of one of the worst months in recorded history in terms of job loses on Obama and not the person who was still president, adjusting the unemployment rate with the LFPR still leaves the unemployment rate at 9.3% for December, 2008.
    And btw - you do realize that since I have virtually no respect for your macroeconomic views OR your level of bias that I do not read most of your posts.

    The above is a good example.

    I saw the 'False', and basically ignored the rest.

    I suggest if you do make posts to me in the future that you do not make them long-winded - unless you like typing posts that the person you are typing them for does not even read 90% of it.

    Now include a link or interesting looking stats - that I might read.

    Just sayin'...


    Have a nice day.

    But I cannot, so I will not.


    As for the rest?

    So these stats you do recognize.

    But others you do not.



    If you are not even going to acknowledge official government statistics as official government statistics - then you must be nuts if you think I am going to waste one second talking with you about official government statistics.



    Have a nice day.

    Let me know when you are truly done with this, ok? Because you keep going on about it even though you said you were done.

    I will stop posting whenever I believe all my points have been made and understood.

    Just trying to help you not waste your time in future when you type posts to me.

    Don't bother to thank me.


    BTW - another suggestion.

    Getting overly emotional, making a lot of silly/childish/rudish statements and gestures does not further your cause.

    It just makes you look - imo - rather insecure and undisciplined.

    People that are secure in their facts do not usually act like that.

    People that are not, generally do...especially when it comes to economics.

    Again, just trying to help.


    Anyway...back to the topic.


    Have a nice day.

    Ok, so you're not done, then? Just trying to clarify because you said you were.

    Still, by either starting date (December vs. January), the unemployment rate is still not worse than it was when Obama became president.

    Okaaaaaaaaay.

    I wonder what other facts you only see when they suit you....yikes.

    Wow - you are really out there.


    Have a nice day.
    Speaking of the unemployment rate when Obama became president ...
    Here, do you think any of the following don't know what the unemployment rate was when Obama became president?


    • Obamaís victory came as unemployment hovered at 7.9 percent -- slightly higher than the 7.8 percent rate he faced when he took the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2009


    • The 7.8 percent unemployment rate for September matches the rate in January 2009, when Obama took office


    • Friday following his disappointing debate performance as the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent. Thatís the lowest itís been since he took office in 2009.


    • The unemployment rate was 7.8% when Obama took office in January 2009.

    • Obama’s victory came as unemployment hovered at 7.9 percent -- slightly higher than the 7.8 percent rate he faced when he took the oath of office on Jan. 20, 2009


    • The 7.8 percent unemployment rate for September matches the rate in January 2009, when Obama took office

    • The unemployment rate was 7.8% when Obama took office in January 2009.


    • Unemployment was 7.8 percent when Obama took office

    Changes nothing - though you posted links, good lad (which is mainly why I am even bothering to reply).


    The OFFICIAL unemployment rate on the day Obama took office was 7.3%.

    Maybe the actual unemployment rate was higher/lower - but the OFFICIAL one was 7.3% as the 7.8% number was not released until two weeks after Obama took office.


    Use your head - how can the official number on the day he took office be 7.8% when it was not even released for two weeks after Inauguration Day?

    Did the media say on that day - 'Obama has a tough road ahead, considering the unemployment numbers that will be released in two weeks will say 7.8% - even though there is no possible way we can know what those numbers actually are today'.

    Riiiiiight.

    They would say 'Obama has a tough road ahead considering the latest unemployment rate is 7.3%' (actually, then they would say 7.2% as it was later revised upwards).

    Duh.


    Until you can admit this ridiculously simple and obvious fact - then I will (hopefully) waste no more time with you on it.

    Even if you include links - lol.


    Have a nice day.
