    Made the tenuous connection that Millions not being able to find employment is a positive economic indicator ?

    And that the Labor market ia right were we need to be because we don't want to turn into " Ethiopia " ??
    There's nothing more amusing than hearing a conservative pretend to care about unemployed people finding work.

    Hey, the FED said they would stop QE if unemployment ever dropped below 6 percent too. So whats the hold up Yellen ?
    Face it, Mitt would have been jumping up and down and farting quarters if he had 5.9 half way through his first term.

    Try as you might, the number is good news for America.

    And back in 2008, Obama said the stimulus would ensure unemployment would go no higher than 8%. It went much higher. And it stayed up there for 43 months.

    So, I'd say President Obama was several years behind his own prediction.

    Gee, that is nice.

    But I posted that Romney promised 6% in 4 years. So...... your post is not germane to my post.

    People don't have jobs because the economy shrank.....

    It's nearly a clone of the USSR...... Half have jobs and the other half are relying on government handouts.

    In short there are not enough jobs for everyone...

    Any economist left or right can see this.....

    Obama**** did exactly as he planned to do and his ISIS bombings are just compromise...

    Obama manipulated the laws, rules and regulations of a free nation. Of course no one cares because those who get the perks - the free perks- love the man.

    The United States has become a caricature of its intended ideas.

    Sure it is. Romney said he could lower two points in four years. It took Obama six years.

    Pipelines really do not create a ton of secondary jobs. I still think the hotel creates more. That all said, you are still missing my point (probably because I am indulging you in your tangents)... when it comes to job creation, the Keystone pipeline is much to do about nothing: it just doesn't create that many jobs.

    Exactly.

    But, they will - I assume - just keep moving the goal posts until either the economy finally takes off on it's own (fat chance) or the Fed finally runs out of bullets to shoot.
