    Doubt seriously if any of those American Idol voters even knew the results, they were getting their handouts and need a massive central govt. that Obama is promoting to take the place of the parent they apparently never had. Most people bought the rhetoric about Bush and ignored the results. I have asked over and over again only to be ignored, name for me the Obama economic result that is better than Bush's?

    I'm not defending anything, I'm simply stating facts. Take them as you wish.

    And want to derail the read with irrelevant nonsense ?
    So you can't answer the question? Is it because you were wrong?

    Now you're just lying, because I know I've addressed that multiple times myself with you, as have others.

    I guess this country is doing quite well, right? I mean, if we're taking personal anecdotes, this country sounds great right now.

    Only two, and those two buildings are always going out of business, even before the recession.

    None where I live *shrug*

    No, we lost a lot 5 and 6 years ago. There's a big difference in what I said and what you said.

    Personal anecdotes aside, no one is claiming the economy is as good now as it was in the late 90s. But it IS better than it was in late 2008.

    Then it sounds like our politicians need to go to work to incentivize job creation in America, instead of providing tax breaks to companies who close plants here and outsource the work to China.

    Well, they voted in 2012 and America apparently liked the direction in which we were going. We'll see what 2016 brings.


    Although I am happy for you that your circumstance is relatively well off, that doesn't comport with reality that most of the country is experiencing.

    I agree, but then again, if we did have standards for voting, you probably wouldn't like it very much.
    I'm still waiting on you to answer my question from the other thread. Let me know when you get around it.
    4 million registered Republicans stayed home and didn't vote.

    Again, a perfect example of the distortions from the media and the left. When the recession began in December 2007 there were 146 million working Americans. Are there more or less working today? How about it, Slyfox? You can get the answer at BLS.gov, not the DNC website

    It's all propaganda. If you want to know how this country is doing just ask your neighbor, or friend, or family member that is out there looking for work, and can't find it. Just take a cruise in your electric smart car, and take a look around town, and notice how many businesses are shuttered. How many strip malls that used to have stores, and traffic are now either slotted for, or torn down completely. How many downtown's are only half occupied and operating.....etc.
    Lovely anecdotes, but the jobs survey takes into account areas outside of your town as well. Here in Florida we're doing just fine.

    Re: Economy adds 192,000 jobs; unemployment rate holds steady at 6.7%

    I am curious why the article does not state how many jobless claims there were or new jobless claims.
    That was all the rate 9 years ago:
    U.S. unemployment rate rises to 5.8% in February - Mar. 7, 2003

    Hourly wages have ticked upwards 10 out of the last 12 months. Portraying this month's one cent decline as some sort of a trend is a fools errand.
