That is good news.
    We lost 4.74 million jobs last year and just gained .16

    Yes, the job losses have stopped, but that's been true for many months. Have we "started gaining jobs"? The jury is out and you won't see me celebrating until we demonstrate a reliable trend.

    I'm not focusing on the negative - I'm being indifferent. If I were focusing on the negative, I'd be talking about how this was considerably lower than expectations, how it still represents a slight increase in the overall unemployment rate, etc.

    The graph perfectly makes the point for which it was intended, and I made the data available to you. If you wish to make a point (god, that would be nice!) feel free to make your own graph to illustrate it.

    Unless or until that happens, I'll continue to believe you have nothing of interest to add to the discussion.

    Wasn't calling you dumb. But a HUGE number of Obama supporters are entirely clueless about anything on this planet, the least of which is governmental policy, economics, or the implications of one on the other.

    4.5 million foreclosures in 2010 is not spin

    it's way too many to be spin

    way too big, serious, important

    on the other hand, to overlook 4.5 million foreclosures...

    now, that'd be spin

    a trillion dollars per year in interest alone is not spin

    it's way too expensive to be spin

    too big, too important

    to try to ignore a tril per year...

    that'd be spin

    the spreading of the cancer to commercial real estate...

    the reluctance of our partners to continue to carry us...

    the status of STATE budgets in sacto, albany, lansing...

    these observations aren't politics, not spin

    they're way too impending

    to overlook, in contrast, the extra billion dollars it's costing at&t and verizon just to remain in operation...

    for anyone to try to look past that...

    in times like these...

    now, that'd be spin

I dont CARE about the parties...I care that we keep spending ourselves into oblivion and eventually it will destroy us.
    Good. I missed that part.

    You really expect a lot. It took a decade to ruin the economy, yet you expected Obama to fix it in a year?
    Could anyone have fixed it?
    What could have been done to fix the housing sector?
    What could have been done to prevent all those job losses?
    Bush and Co. tried zero percent interest rates and tax cuts. That just made things worse. What could have Obama done differently to fix the economy in his first year?
