    Yes... I used to hear a lot of people talk about how they "believed in Obama" and how they "trusted he would do the right thing." I don't hear that much anymore. The people that had become so inspired by the Obama campaign have become utterly deflated by the Obama Presidency. Like balloons that were filled to capacity and then simply let go.... Pppbbbblllltt!

    So more came to the work market than left.. big woopie. It is just a statistical issue and of course for the right a political "issue", but in reality it means nothing because the US unemployment numbers are flawed.

It's not just the liberals fault, both Republican and Democrat are pushing for the same thing, expansion of their power and proliferation of the status quo. This recession wasn't caused on his watch, it was Bush. Obama has merely expanded upon it.

    Republicans and Democrats aren't going to save us, they're the ones who put us in this hole.
    The Republicans haven't been in charge of legislation since January 2007 but unlike you I don't look for a political party to save me, as I expect to do that myself. I take personal responsibility for both good and bad choices and I do my best to take care of my family so they don't need you to do it for me. I grew up in much simpler times and as a results seem to understand personal responsibility and how to take care of my own.

    A misused stimulus plan that bailed out unions, state employees, and other Democrat contituent groups. He would have gotten much better results cutting taxes 862 billion dollars. Then he piled on with Obamacare which will drive up employment costs.

    What are you 7? Your comment was incorrect both in terms of arithmetic and financial reality.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Another reading comprehension error. The stimulus consisting of both tax cuts and spending is causing unemployment to rise? Care to source which employment cost increases have surfaced as a result of Obamacare?

    So just to make sure I understand you correctly, you are a huge fan of Keynesian economics...you just think the money could have been better allocated?

    Long-term issue, wholly unrelated to current unemployment numbers.
