    Don't know from the figures, but by 2009 the trend downward was fully in play. These are yearly stats.

    Your opinion noted but TX operates on conservative principles and is prospering. Data is something you don't understand including BLS, Treasury and BEA

    Secular stagnation:
    Yes, Obama has done a great job destroying incentive and promoting stagnation. The results show it as do most liberal policies of wealth redistribution and penalizing producers

    You forgot to mention, that somewhere in there you became a functioning adult. It's a natural progression, liberal to conservative.

Not so sure that is a record to be proud of Con.

    Only in your world is losing hundreds of thousands of jobs better than net job gain. You worship GWB who is known as the Herbert Hoover of the 21st century (for good reason).

    Sorry Con....but I'll let the numbers speak for themselves. Hint: They are not on your side. Doh!
    You certainly don't understand cost of living at all including low taxes so you continue to ignore reality. I posted bls data, you haven't refuted it. You posted 2009 to the present data ignoring the Obama stimulus program for shovel ready jobs. You promote the California entitlement mentality which makes Obama a hero in your world. Debt, low job creation, slow economic growth have no place in your world. Stick to California as that is exactly what you deserve

    By the way, keep ignoring the minimum wage jobs created in California. I believe that 1.6 million minimum wage jobs in California exceed the 500,000 in TX but could be wrong. I don't use liberal math

    Which is just rhetorical distraction from the point you did not have. Don't you remember the negative you set yourself up to prove?

    But since you prefer to ignore Bush's recession job losses, let's just start counting the Obummer job gains from employment bottomed out.
    Except that's just not true as has been shown.

    He never progressed, he "was always a (Southern) conservative".

    The labor market did not reach it's bottom. Since 2010, more than 12 million jobs have been created; this is a fact that you cannot deny.



    You have your years mixed up.
    Yes, you are right, my apology, the year was 2009, January when the debt was 10.6 trillion
