    Here you go:

    U.S. economy creates 165,000 jobs in April - Economic Report - MarketWatch

    You can't look the UE rate and determine the health of the jobs market anymore than you can determine the health of a person by checking their body temperature. A job can be almost anything from working just a few hours a week to a full time job; and a person can have two jobs and it will be counted twice. Needless to say, I don't believe the UE rate can get so low the it can prohibit job creation... That's outright BS.
    I didn't suggest this and if it was implied it was an error. I believe it impossible for the UE rate to 'prohibit job growth' as it is merely a ratio and has no effect on job growth. I do however believe that there is a bottom to the UE rate that is not 0. Economist argue what the maximum employment is but it is generally ~5% UE.

    Thanks for the link, but that does not say what jmac claimed. He said we needed to gain 250,000 jobs monthly just to keep up with population growth. The article you linked says we need 250,000 jobs monthly to lower the unemployment rate. But thanks for proving jmac wrong.

    Horsefeathers.

    Did you notice who won the election last November? If not, allow me to inform you that President Obama was re-elected by a larger margin than G.W. Bush had in 2004.

    Mitt Romney was chosen as a complete failure and the incompetent candidate by the American voters. He is not living in the White House, Barack Obama is.

    Deal with it.

    What the last election showed and you show with your post is that results don't matter and you buy the flowering rhetoric showing how little competence matters. Obama was totally unqualified to be President but won the popularity contest and we are paying that price today.

    Well you may be paying a price, but roughly half of the country approves of the job he's doing.

    President Bush wasn't qualified to be POTUS, how much success did he have in the oil business?
