    Can you imagine how well we would be doing if Europe wasn't on the ropes?
    You have a number of questions that you ran from which means you have a very short selective memory

    Just goes to show how much you love your country that is burdened by an additional 6 trillion dollars in debt, record numbers on food stamps, record numbers on disability, and record numbers of businesses out of business. That is the America that you seem to support especially being "anti? Republican. The European model of course is more to your liking as you need a massive central govt. to provide for you

    I suggest you look and try to comprehend what the economic numbers today actually show. It only cost 6 trillion added to the debt to get back to the employment, unemployment numbers that Obama inherited. And then of course there is the booming labor market that has grown from 154 million in December 2007 to 155.2 million in April 2013. Do you know what a discouraged worker is? Do you know that in 2010-2011-2012 that number exceeded a million many months? Are those people unemployed and benefiting from the stock market?

    So is it your contention that 10 million under employed individuals is a sign that Obama is doing a good job stimulating the private sector to grow, expand, and increase employment? So in other words you have no problem with 10 million under employed Americans?

    If the entire nation was employed part time for 5 hours a week BUT EVERYONE wanted full time work but no full time jobs were available - would you say then that no one in America was unemployed?

    Yes or no, please?

    And, if 'yes', - then would you call America (in that scenario) at full employment?

    Yes or no, please?


    Have a nice day.
