How about the 1.8% GDP growth for 2013 annualized based upon first quarter results? And all this 4 years after the end of the recession? This is what you support?
    How about Bush saw it happening and did nothing to stop it? Wouldn't you blame Obama if it were him at a fund raiser?

    As explained to you previously, the headline figure is in net form. Do you believe that there were no jobs created in months where a negative figure was published? Really simple concept.

    How about proving it and why does it matter today. It has been over 4 years that Obama has had control of the WH and the numbers today show poor leadership and failure to generate positive economic results even though spending trillions

    I wonder how many Obama supporters believe that if they generated the numbers Obama has generated that they would have that job four years after taking the job?

    In the month of June, over 1 million people became discouraged and are no longer counted as unemployed. When you add that one million back to the unemployment roles the unemployment rate is 8.2%. Seems that as long as people drop off the unemployed roles and are no longer counted they don't really exist in the Obama supporter world. The point is 195000 is a drop in the bucket when you are losing people out of the labor force because they are discouraged. the official u-6 rate is 14.3% which puts the unemployed/under employed/discouraged workers over 21 million. That should alarm everyone as many of these are now becoming chronically unemployed

    Unlike Harry I woulda put the bill on the floor and let everyone take a peek at the subterfuge (cutting regulations and hindering the E P A from clamping down on toxic mercury and arsenic pollutants)that the house wingers were trying to push…before the election.

    Do you actually think that this would have been voted into law? That BO woulda signed it?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Doesn't matter, the right thing to do was to put the bills on the floor and let them be debated not let them sit in a desk and call the House Obstructionist.

    I know you will read this wrong, but do you really think this would magically change with a republican in charge? Hell, it started with a republican. I'm not blaming the republican mind you, as presidents not control the economy, but the fact is the problem would not go away. You just stop talking about it.

    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.

    Yes, I really do. I know that four years after the end of a recession we would have better economic results than we have today because any Republican wouldn't have supported the anti growth policies that Obama has implemented nor would any republican demonize individual wealth creation. Obama leadership has been limited to vacation and golf course activities certainly not economic or foreign affairs.

    I spent 35 years in the business world in a leadership and management position. Obama is the worst I have ever seen in being a leader, taking responsibility, and managing his staff along with economic policies.

    I'm sorry, but you would be wrong. It would not have changed at all. It will run its course regardless.
