    Still waiting for you to explain why there are only 143 million working Americans today with that tremendous job creation and why 500,000 dropped out of the labor force last month. I anxiously await your response.

    Suffering for whom? The private sector is humming; adding 6 million jobs over the streak of the last 37 consecutive months of growth. It's the public sector which is hurting.

    Your opinion noted, 143 million Americans working today vs 146 million in December 2007 generated at a cost of 6 trillion to tThe debt. By the way when did Obama start controlling state workers? It is a different ballgame since the state cannot print money like the Federal Govt. can, isn't it?

    And all the unemployed, underemployed and discouraged workforce dropouts.

    The explanation is simple.

    You're lying.

    BLS says there are currently about 155 million working today, ....

    Wow, you have zero credibility as you don't know the difference between labor force and numbers of people working. Obama loves having people like you supporting him. You really have no idea what you are talking about, the labor force is 155 million, the number working is 143 million, the difference divided by the labor force is the unemployment rate. Learn something and stop making a fool of yourself, this is embarrassing.

    Yes, you sure didn, 130,000 fewer in the labor force in February and another 496,000 in March, that is really headed in the right direction, really surprised that the unemployment rate didn't drop further.

    Do liberals ever apologize for being wrong?

    Unemployed? There are fewer of them now than when Obama became president. Not something Bush can brag about.

    Bush: +6,056,000
    Obama: -337,000

    Underemployed? There are fewer of them now than when Obama became president. Not something Bush can brag about.

    Bush: +4,512,544
    Obama: -366,080

    Discouraged? There are more of them now than when Obama became president. But far less than the number Bush added.

    Bush: +433,000
    Obama: +69,000
