    Wow, 10 million is the increase in the labor force, the 142 million working in January 2009 isn't a net job loss. You have been sold a bill of goods by the leftwing spin machine and need to stop buying the rhetoric.

    Business financial statements and QE are very different things, stop conflating the two.

    PS...I love that you used Wiki for help!
    No, you need to stop believing the answer to our economic problems is more govt. spending. Where do you think the money comes from to buy up the assets in QE?

    Using your numbers, how does 137 to 142....become 10M?

    And it is funny how fiscal years used to be your standard, but when it works against you....oh well.

    It really is hard dealing with a liberal like you because you simply buy rhetoric and ignore the actual numbers. You don't seem to understand labor force and unemployment. Wish I could type slower so you understand it. You claimed Bush had a net job loss, there was no net job loss as the employment numbers show. Bush took office with 137 million working Americans and left office with 142 million working Americans. That isn't a net loss

    Bush took office with a 143 million labor force and left with a labor force of 154 million, that exceeds 10 million. Liberalism is making you look foolish.

    Fiscal years? What the hell are you talking about now? I feel badly for you

    Um, total nonfarm employment, seasonally adjusted in Sept of 2001 was 131618, in Sept 2009 it was 129784.

There are things about Obama that I like and things about him that I dislike. Overall on the economy....considering where we were and where we were headed....I would give him a B-. Better than most but certainly there is room for improvement.

    The previous clown in the whitehouse did as good with the economy as he did capturing Bin Laden. It didn't concern him that much.
    So the answer is 'B-'.


    A jobs report where there was actually a reduction in full time jobs from the last report (but a large increase in part time jobs) is your idea of a 'B-' jobs report?


    A jobs report that over the last three months shows that the U-3 rate for Americans with a high school diploma or greater has actually risen overall.

    BUT for people without a high school diploma - it's gone down.

    Which proves that the new jobs being created are principally part time and unskilled.

    http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.a.htm

    These two facts represent a 'B-' jobs report to you?

    Noted.


    I guess you don't mind that America is slowly becoming a nation of unskilled, part time workers WHILE the rich get substantially richer on the backs of the Fed indirectly propping up the stock market.

    Each to their own.


    And btw - I am neither Dem or Rep.

    And I think BOTH GWB AND Obama were/are terrible POTUS's.

    I posted the actual chart that is used to calculate unemployment rate. Suggest you learn how to use BLS data vs cherry picking what you want to use.

    Um no, we are supposed to be comparing apples to apples, the OP uses BLS NONFARM EMPLOYMENT DATA:

    Employment Situation Summary

    Read it and weep, Con.

    Oh, Good Lord, so you think there were only 131 million Americans working in non farm payroll jobs. Do you know the difference between the reports in BLS? Apparently not but again you are doing a great job diverting from the issue of poor Obama job performance and poor economic results. You want badly to continue to bring Bush into the discussion when you don't even understand the Bush economic results only what the left feeds you. When does this economy become Obama and when do Obama supporters hold Obama responsible for the current economic results? Such low expectations in your personal life will lead to failure.
