    You need to pay better attention to conversations you join.

    Thank you, President Obama.
    Here we go again, more data that you have no understanding of. Maybe you can answer the question that Sheik and others ignore, how do people dropping off the roles of the unemployed and becoming discouraged affect the unemployment rate?

State and local governments have that responsibility, not the Federal Govt. and therein lies the problem. Too many people like you have no concept as to the role of the Federal Govt.

    That's what the Obama administration is known for, playing a shell game with numbers or cooking the numbers.

    They been busted more than a few times cooking the numbers on immigration deportations and how many illegal aliens are crossing the border.

    The best scam they got caught at was including Navy hospital ships and navy coastal craft being counted as part of the Navy's combat fleet to make the Navy appear larger than it really is.

    You can't trust any thing that has a .gov behind it, well at least with the current administration.

    Indeed.

    And you answered with a quote from me. How about responding in kind as to the role of the Federal Govt. in your world?

    Sorry but your ignorance of the facts and what you post is staggering. How do you think the 21.5 million unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers along with the millions and millions of others not even counted feel about the Obama economic record?

    The facts are the facts. You cannot change them. Everything I said was 100% correct. Once more, conservatives engage in spinning positive news negatively. What is it about conservatism that creates this kind of loyalty?

    I'm sorry, does that have ANYTHING to do with my facts? Nope. Once more conservatives from the facts when challenged. What is it about conservatism that creates this kind of loyalty?

    My facts are facts, completely indisputable. The unemployment rate is lower, we're gaining (not losing) jobs each month and the stock market has doubled. Thank you, President Obama.
