    I infer that you perceive a problem re a libertarian at ease with the idea of public employment. There is none.

    Two - I said 'official' on that day.

    I did not say 'actual' - I freely acknowledge it may have actually been 7.8% on that day.

    But, on the day he was inaugurated, if someone reported on the unemployment, they would have said that it was 7.2% - not 7.8%.

    I am trying to determine if this guy can recognize obvious facts without spinning them out of control - not win the Nobel Prize for Economics.


    And three - not that I doubt you, but where is a link to your source of the 'reference week'?

    The only one I know states: 'Each month, 2,200 highly trained and experienced Census Bureau employees interview persons in the 60,000 sample households for information on the labor force activities (jobholding and jobseeking) or non-labor force status of the members of these households during the survey reference week (usually the week that includes the 12th of the month).

    How the Government Measures Unemployment

    'Usually' does not mean 'always' - so I am wondering how you know that it was absolutely without question during that week, during that month.

    Again, not that I am doubting you.
    According to you, the unemployment rate went from 3.9% to 9.3% under Bush. A 138% increase.

    Ain'tcha proud?

    You do realize that when the dollar collapses, the markets crash, inflation/interest rates start reaching for the sky and Obama comes on tv (either during or just after his Presidency ends) and admits 'maybe our thinking on the economy was flawed, but our hearts were in the right place' that these guys you are debating with will probably still not admit he was anything but a wonderful POTUS.

    It's called 'closed minded'.

    You will probably never change there minds no matter what you type.

    Just sayin'...

    The Russians give Reagan the credit. As for arms to a terrorist nation, regrettable, but no worse than Clinton not getting OBL when he had the chance. See how silly that type of nit picking is?
