    Well Bush is the only president since Hoover to leave office with fewer private sector jobs than when he started. That's obviously not an easy feat.

    But Bush, being marvelous in failure, managed to accomplish that.

    Great, now how does that explain the Obama record of failure? You think .4% GDP growth, 6 trillion added to the debt, high unemployment, record numbers on SS disability, millions on food stamps and other taxpayer assistance is a good economic record for our community organizer president? Obviously understanding leadership is another subject you don't understand

    WTF? Where did I say their numbers are wrong. I'm saying you're wrong, not the BLS.

    Here it is again ...

    In January, 2001, there were 301,000 discouraged workers.

    In January, 2009, there were 734,000 discouraged workers.

    That means when Bush left office, there were 433,000 more discouraged workers than when he started.

    In January, 2009, there were 734,000 discouraged workers.

    In March, 2013, there were 803,000 discouraged workers.

    That means under Obama (so far), there are 69,000 more discouraged workers than when he started.

    That's what the BLS says. That's what I say they say.


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

    What part of that is not sinking in for you?

    Since discouraged workers is a monthly number, Bush averaged less than half the number of discouraged workers per month than Obama, 420k vs 962k. What part of that don't you understand. Doubt those 962k monthly discouraged workers are excited to know that the percentage change is less than Bush's even though the numbers are twice as high.

    I guess you were happier under Bush when we lost 1.2 million jobs in a single month and the GDP was negative nine percent, huh?

    Sure, if you ignore the massive recession that Bush left for Obama which led to those numbers.

    It's laughably embarrassing to still be blaming Bush

    Bush started with 4.2% -- Did not inherit a recession, but his average was still 1.1 point higher than when he started.

    Obama started with 7.8% -- Inherit the worst economy in 80 years, and his average was also up 1.1 points higher than when he started.
