    As I already said, the definition of discourage changed in 1994 so the database only goes back that far because the numbers aren't comparable.

    And if discouraged were considered unemployed as you claim, then why are they listed separately in the U7?
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Huh? Discouraged workers have nothing to do with benefits running out. There aren't't even any questions about benefits in the survey

    So by this point in their respective presidencies, Obama is doing better than Reagan. As far as Reagan adding many more jobs by the time he left office -- Obama still has close to 4 years to go, and the trend over the last 3 years is adding jobs. Including close to 7 million in the private sector alone which has now grown for the 38th consecutive month.
    LOL, so you really want to compare Reagan's numbers to Obama's? Better do some research and stop making a fool of yourself. Only a true Obama supporter would make the claim that taking the unemployment rate down to 7.3 is worse than taking the U-6 rate to 13.9. You are unbelievable.

    The recession Reagan inherited went until November 1982 and the recession that Obama inherited ended in June 2009.

    Oh come now, con, you really aren't concerned with discouraged workers are you? You should be grateful for all those private sector jobs created. I bet you would be, if Obama had an R next to his name, am I right?

    Ahh, so it took Reagan nearly two years to do what it only took Obama half a year to do.

    Obama > Reagan.

    Moderator's Warning:
    U.S. unemployment falls to 7.5% in April [W: 348, 360]The topic is US unemployment, not each other. Next poster who fails to debate the topic and instead continues to talk about another poster will get the banhammer.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    For a while? Two years? Yes I won't hire someone who has been out of work for 2 years, no initiative, no drive, and someone who has lived off the taxpayers for too long
