    Given Carter's failed attempt to rescue the Iranian hostages it took balls to try to pull it off. If he failed ...

    So terrorism has stopped by getting Bin Laden? So Afghanistan is stable now that Bin Laden is dead? Congratulations Obama on the actions of Seal Team 6 and the intelligence they had, intelligence that you didn't support.

Tell me Pb, fact or lie, Obama inherited 142 million employed? Fact or lie, he signed an 842 billion dollar stimulus and employment went to 139 million two years later? Interesting how after 7.6 trillion added to the debt, a stagnant economy, we have 149 million employed today over 7 years later. Looks like a 3 million increase to me

Classic Con game here.
    You voted for Obama, you continue to support Obama, you ignore the actual Obama results. You have zero credibility. Please take a civics class and tell me what the Democrat Controlled Congress did to prevent Bush from creating the "financial mess?" Was Obama in that Congress? It is absolutely stunning that Bush with a Democrat Congress is solely responsible for the financial mess and still responsible for the mess Obama created after taking office again with a Democrat Congress. Let's see if I have this right, President Bush is responsible for the financial mess and the Republicans in the Congress are responsible for the terrible Obama recovery?

    There is no question that results don't matter to an Obama supporter as they never learn from history and make the same mistakes over and over again.

You talk about slow job growth and the last Republican left office with LESS jobs a negative job creation score. While you are digesting that you can look at Obama's score compared to Saint Reagan.

    By the way.... This is the best private sector jobs creation performance in American history




    Obama Outperforms Reagan On Jobs, Growth And Investing
    So tell me which Obama economic policy created private sector jobs? Was it ACA? How about the focus on increasing the minimum wage? How about his current stand on overtime? How about his EPA attack on coal?

    You are looking for anything to prop up the incompetent you support but reality just goes to show how economically challenged you are. Still waiting for an answer to the question I asked you but as usual you ran from it.

    Thread after thread, post after post you are here supporting Obama. Please tell me what economic or foreign policy results have generated this support? What you and others continue to do is post support based upon feelings making this nothing more than an American Idol vote. Gruber defined people like you and really would like to understand your mindset and why such loyalty?

    LOL....like I said....you are the most biased and delusional person on this site. You want to give Bush credit for things that other Presidents accomplished and you want to blame everyone else for things that occurred on his watch. I understand why. If you look at the actual result that you claim are so important to you....then the God/Myth that you have created and elevated your hero to would not exist. So you have to create these fictional scenarios in your mind....where 911 occurred on Clinton's watch, Bush responded by going after those who attacked us, captured and killed Bin Laden and then led the United States to economic Utopia, which he handed over to the next guy. It must be cozy living in your mind.

    That of course is your opinion and I could say the same thing about you regarding Obama. Still waiting to find out if BDS is covered under Obamacare? You continue to buy the leftwing rhetoric and divert from the leftwing results. Typical liberalism as results don't matter to people like you

    Terrorism increased after we invaded Iraq. President Bush said he would get bin Laden "Dead or Alive" it's one of the reasons we invaded Afghanistan. Bush failed. Who says I didn't support the intelligence??

    Yes, Bush did say that and was stonewalled the entire way. Tell me you supported enhanced interrogation? Tell me that the enhanced interrogation didn't impact the capture and killing of Bin Laden? Tell me that Obama supported the techniques used to get that information? You buy the liberal rhetoric and ignore the background, why is that?

    Has the killing of Bin Laden made us safer? Has the peace been won in Iraq or Afghanistan? Name for me the Obama accomplishments that have made the economy stronger and the world safer?

Giving Obama credit for the private sector growth is total ignorance.
    And if private sector jobs had declined, would you blame Obama's "job killing policies" as you tried to do in the previous post? As for your claim that the unemployment is decreasing because people are just dropping from the labor force, let us be clear about who we are discussing. When you mention folks "dropping from the labor pool," are you also including those individuals who no longer wish to work at all (e.g. retiring)? Or can we limit that discussion to those individuals who dropped out temporarily, but wish to look for a job in the future?

    Because if it is the later, you're wrong. I know this because that number gets tracked as the U6 unemployment rate. The unemployment rate which also counts individuals that are marginally attached (i.e. working part time, but would like to work more hours) and those who temporarily discouraged (i.e. wish to look again in the near future).

    At the height of the recession, the U6 was at 17.1 in October-December of 2009, that rate currently sits at 10.8%.
