    Just as I thought, you don't understand the BLS data. What that chart shows is well over a million discouraged workers each month in 2010 and more months in later years all over a millions which even basic math tells you is much higher than 700,000. Those people aren't counted as unemployed but certainly are unemployed

    Why not? Do the Repubs think the electorate too stupid or something? Why not run on it?

    The electorate didn't buy it because there isn't one economic number that is better than the Bush averages for his entire term but you are right, debt is much higher, discouraged workers are much higher, GDP growth is lower but as the architect of Obamacare said the liberal base is ignorant.

    It would really help if you got a new schtick.

    If this is true it wouldn't be because they are not solutions, but because they aren't politically feasible solutions.

    LOL... I particuarly like how you use totals instead of end results because if you looked at results you fail more than miserably. So you sweep in that golden economy Clinton handed off to Bush and credit Bush with that. Why don't you like to observe trends Conservative? huh? Why not look at where is started vs where it ended under Bush? I wonder why? Because he tanked our economy. That's why.

    Explain "politically feasible"... because it sure as hell looks like a conservative way of being Politically Correct in calling the electorate too stupid to know better.
