    Now lets see what an actual expert has to say. Not some hyperbolic blow hard idealogical am radio parrot on the internetz.

    See ???

    Your post is a great example of the willful ignorance of Democrats or those who support Obama. Right now, Obama through arbitrary EPA enforcement is hampering jobs growth. All on the false narrative of environmental protection. Tryiing to shut down the coal industry, forcing industry to spend billions to meet new draconian regulations.

    A arbitrary increase in Regulations kill economic growth.

    What's interesting is that his job killing regulations stop at industrial and energy applications, but getting the GSE's back up and going with the same bubble building malfeasance that created the Sub-Prime Collapse ?

    Hiring a politician to run Fannie Mae into the ground ? His new Affordable Home Initiative through Ginnie Mae ? No there's " nothing wrong with that "

    And by the way, aren't you a man of your word? You said you were done with me? Why are you still posting to me then?

    It's not a " net " gain if workforce participation levels are dropping as fast as he claims " jobs growth " It's not a " net gain " if there are 10 million more working age Americans than there was when he was elected.

    Jobs growth isn't even keeping up with population growth, it's been lagging behind since he was elected by people who are easily manipulated and entertained.

    Cant you make ONE post that's honest ?

Too bad that it is up 2 million since Obama took office and still down two million from when the recession began and all at the bargain price of over 6.2 trillion added to the debt.

    Hope the following helps some here to realize how little credibility Obama supporters have when it comes to the economic numbers they post. Liberals seem to have such low expectations and such a poor understanding of economic policies.

    November 2007 Employment, 146.6 million people working
    January 2009, 142.2 million people working
    July 2013, 144.1 million people working

    Yes, that is a liberal success story, hiring someone to get the employment level back to 146.6 million and getting employment back to 144.1 million
    Hey, look at that ... those number show how Bush's Great Recession led to the loss of 9 million jobs.

    It's amusing how Bush can lose 9 million jobs and you'd vote for him again if he were running, but Obama gains 7 million jobs and you won't vote for him at all.

    Cool post ... a non-sequitur AND a false premise all rolled into one. Here's what Obama's has been doing for energy ...

    Drill, Baby, Drill: Obama Opens Up Offshore Drilling and Exploration

    OBAMA: My Administration Continues To Open Millions Of Acres For Oil And Gas Exploration

    O covers his gas as city price hits $4.49

    Obama Opens Part of National Petroleum Reserve In Alaska to Leases for Drilling

    ... you are now free to return to your rightie talking points.

    Nonsense. We went from 107 million to 114 million private sector jobs over the last 40 months. That is a net gain in the private sector. Trying to factor in the participation rate is what is dishonest since it includes people who retire, people who opt for school, and people who lost their jobs in a struggling public sector.

    And by the way, the drop in the participation rate begin around 2001 and increased drastically in 2008 when the economy collapsed and when baby boomers began hitting the early retirement age of 62.

    Right you are. But thousands and thousands of people got a good start there. If you have a better idea, you hire them with no skills and pay them more than they are worth. Who knows, maybe you can win the lottery and you can keep the doors of your business open for a year or two before you go broke.

    Read my response. That was the key thing said.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You don't have to do this either. You're going from one extreme to another.

    Nothing extreme about a business offering employment to unskilled workers at a low wage that allows them to develop their skills and the business to make money at the same time. The extreme is braindead, wishful thinking that sound business practices don't matter or don't effect future hiring.
