    Great, and it was 154 million when he left office in 2009. it is 155 million four plus years later. Guess there wasn't any population growth the last four years as one million isn't much.

    Throughout America’s history, presidents have gladly accepted the credit when economic times were good, and have been stuck with the blame when times were bad. But each one has learned that the president’s power to affect the U.S. economy directly, by executive action alone, is limited. The president is the commander in chief of the powerful U.S. military, but he can’t exactly bark orders at the nation’s sprawling free-market economy, let alone the global forces that interact with it.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    When proven wrong I have done it here including to you, you have a very short memory as evidenced by your biased, distorted, and out of context responses.

    Lesson for Conservative

    I see you still haven't gotten over that lesson! :

    At any rate, I didn't post the monthly figures for discouraged workers ... I posted the total number.

    Jan/2001: 301,000
    Jan/2009: 734,000
    Mar/2013: 803,000

    As I said ...

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



    You must have been looking in the mirror as you typed that.
    No, I am just having fun making you look foolish. You call everyone a liar often which is a bad habit.

    How much of those jobs earn a wage and add to the economy?

    But it's up since then. You were cherry picking dates to show it is down when it's actually up.

    It's a lie that I call everyone a liar.

    Nothing Bush did will ever be good enough for you and nothing Obama has done will ever be scrutinized by you. Obama will never be held accountable by you for his very poor economic results and the worst recovery on record along with poor leadership skills. The economy grew from 9.9 trillion to 14.4 trillion during the Bush term, the highest in history, bea.gov.

    Notice how great those numbers were in 2010, don't recall Bush having anything to do with the 2010 numbers or 2011 or 2012. You do realize that discouraged workers aren't counted as unemployed for the official numbers?
    This is not 2010 and the numbers are what they are:

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

    I gave you the data from bls. you don't like the data because it makes you look foolish which you are. Labor force grew over 10 million in 8 years under Bush and has grown 1 under Obama in four. That is a typical successful liberal record that you seem proud of.
