    There is a common rule with CONservatives though, ANYTHING bad is ALL Obama's fault, NO HISTORY OF PAST PREZ OR CONGRESSIONAL POLICY but ANYTHING that might be good, the GOP steps up and says, despite working against EVERYTHING Obama has presented, it wa a team effort, lol
    On the contrary, RWR took complete responsibility for conditions on his watch, explained them and explained where he was going. Excellent leadership. Thanks for highlighting it.

    So you agree, Bush had 2 recessions, despite right wingers claiming it was a Clinton recession first time

    Yet it STILL took 28 months to get under 8% unemployment, go figure, WITH a Congress working with him...

    There was a recession. I don't care whose name is attached.

    OBAMA ENTERS OFFICE Jan 2009 111,397,000 PRIVATE sector workers

    May 2014 116,594,000 AND INCREASE OF OVER 5+ MILLION IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR WORKFORCE!

    Notice: Data not available: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
    You're killing me with your ignorance of the terms and what they mean. You're citing non-farm payroll jobs, but saying it's workers and workforce. A person can hold more than one job, and labor force (the official term) is employed plus unemployed.

    You are citing the Current Employment Statistics: it asks businesses how many people are on their payrolls. It excludes agriculture, self-employed, those who work in other people's houses, unpaid family workers, and those working under the table. And a person working more than one job will be counted for each job.

    So it's not number of workers, or private sector workforce, but private sector jobs, and yes, private sector and total jobs have gone up to pre-recession levels.

    The labor force (employed plus unemployed, both derived from a household survey) has also gone above pre recession level (though as a percent of the population, it's way down). But total employment is still short. Employment from the household survey includes everyone 16 and older, excluding military, prisoners, and those in an institution who worked at least one hour for pay or 15 hours unpaid in a family business or farm. People are counted once, no matter how many jobs they have.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    NONSENSE. Total PRIVATE sector workforce (NON farm) has gone up by 5+ million since Obama came into office, AFTER Bush l;ost 673,000+ PRIVATE sector in the LABOR force!


    After the hole Bush/GOP left US in, it's a wonder Obama has had 9+ million since hitting Bush's bottom March 2010!!!
