    Obama isn't a Republican, last I checked. What do the Republicans have to do with my post?

    Can you say which Obama policies are creating private sector jobs, and show links that validate the number of jobs his specific policies have created since 2009 that are reflected in the unemployment statistics?

    Oh Great...the usual "Everything is Obama's fault" to "Improvement isn't because of Obama" talking out of both sides of the mouth.

    How come nobody credited the labor force dropouts with the reduction in the unemployment rate yet? They deserve most of the credit, not our country's government or lawmakers.

    Other than the ACA, which keeps getting delayed for business and waived for others, what Obama legislative initiatives actually got adopted that "us guys" claimed would wreck the economy? I'm not aware of a single policy initiative related to the economy that Obama got adopted - can you name some? The author of the OP was left dumbfounded by the question so maybe you can help him out.

    I think we can say that Obama has given the private sector CONFIDENCE in our economy and optimism about continued growth. The very things that Republcans said were lacking when the employment growth was slow. Unless you think the Reps were lying when they said those things were what a President does to boost job growth.

    You're the one who was mouthing off about job killing policies, presumably claiming that the policies were enacted, improved the economy, and "us guys" were wrong.

    Get with the topic!! The OP claims conservatives should concede that Obama has been good for the economy and yet not a single Obamaphile, to date, including you, has been able to identify a single reason why he's been so good for the economy. Is it because he's breathing?

    Perhaps the optimism was generate by the voters themselves, in November 2014, finally drumming the Democrats out of leadership of both Houses of Congress and perhaps soon the White House.
