    Your opinion noted, now stop carrying the water for this empty incompetent and realize what he is doing to the private sector. It isn't about Obamacare, it is about OBAMA. The numbers just don't support your point of view.

    Really? So the numbers are wrong then? Or do you realize that they fail to fit your agenda?

    Overall real GDP from January 2001 through December 2008 grew at an average annual rate of 2.125%.[68] From 2001 through 2004, GDP growth was clocked at 2.35%. The number of jobs created grew by 6.5% on average. The growth in average salaries was 1.2%.

    I suppose these are all bad too. I wonder what the Marxist's numbers are. Interestingly the wikipedia that had numbers for Bush have nothing for the Marxist. Economic policy of Barack Obama - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Well, there is this:

    Overall, according to EPI, the job seekers-to-job openings ratio was 3.1:1 in April. While that's down from the peak of 6.7:1 in July 2009, it's still about twice what it was in the middle of 2007, just before the recession hit.
    With the recession having been over since June 2009, the Obama administration has had plenty of time to restore the country's employment health. We should have been booming by now.
    But the jobs haven't materialized. In the previous nine recessions before this last one, it took an average of just 24 months to regain all the jobs lost. However, it will take about 80 months almost seven years for the country to regain all the jobs lost in the last recession if we continue at Obama's crawling job-creation pace.
    In short, don't blame this jobless recovery on bad luck. Blame White House policies.

    Can you show is with actual numbers?

    When did the massive job loss occur. Wasn't it the month the Marxist was elected? Can we say yes it was?

    Re: US unemployment lowest in 4 years

    Earlier I wrote, "You have misunderstood.

    This is not correct: " We've lost 60% of mid-wage jobs during the recession and only recovered 22%."

    It is not even close. Correct is, "of the job losses 60% were mid wage where the numbers were pulled out of my, er, uh, hat at $28,766 to $43,950 in order to match my agenda."

    Over half of the recovery has been for jobs earning less than $28,766. Can we all say thank you to the Marxist? He is creating equality of both opportunity and outcome as all Marxists do, at the low end." To which you, for reasons know only to you replied,

    So you cannot recognize your simple error?

    Do you really believe we lost 60% of all of the jobs between 29K and 44K? LOL. How many jobs are there?
    In October 2008, the month before the Marxist won the election there were about 155 million jobs. Is this approximately correct? How many of those were mid-wage? Shall we guess about half or 70 million jobs. Is this an acceptable number for you? If so are you claiming that the US shed 60% of those jobs or 42 million jobs?

    If you believe these numbers are correct why hasn't there been a rebellion?

    You are so right, posting data over and over again is partisan bs especially with this President and his supporters. Neither you or he seem to understand that results matter not rhetoric and leaders are responsible for results either good or bad. In Obama's case the numbers are terrible as are his leadership skills.

    If you're blaming only Obamacare you're being foolish. Of course it has contributed, but so has the other garbage regulation that's been put into effect. So has the massively destabilizing force of the Fed's monetary policy. You can't build capital with easy money.

    The US economy added 162,000 new jobs in July.

    This was below economists' expectations of more than 180,000 and the government also cut its previous estimates for hiring in May and June.

    Nonetheless, the new jobs helped the unemployment rate to fall to 7.4%.





    overall positive for the US economy hopefully this is a sign of recovery worldwide.
    Its too bad that the majority of them are PART-TIME jobs.

    Here are charts comparing Reagan, Bush H.W, Clinton, Bush W, and Obama for both private jobs and government jobs.
