    Apparently 14.693 million unemployed is a success to a liberal. The only liberals touting these numbers must be the ones that are either in school or have a job.

    Since the Obama "recovery" began 20 months ago, the national unemployment rate has fallen only half a point, from 9.4 percent in July 2009 to 8.9 percent today. Contrast those anemic results with the robust job growth that occurred during the Reagan recovery in the ’80s. By the 20-month mark of the Reagan recovery, unemployment had dropped from 10.8 percent to 7.5 percent – a 3.3-point drop.

    Must you always be so damned cynical? That's one whole percentage point down from where things were two years ago. It's not much, but can you atleast try to find some positive in what's happening with our country as a result of what this Administration and Congress are doing instead of being so negative all the time?

    What does any of that have to do with Obama claiming that he inherited a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit? The deficit for 2009 was 1.4 trillion and if you want to deduct the 100 billion Obama supplemental for the Afghanistan that leaves a 1.3 trillion deficit. Still waiting for you to explain where the 350 billion TARP money left for Obama went, the 787 billion stimulus plan that Obama submitted went, and where in the 2009 budget proposal there was a 1.3 trillion deficit? If there was a 1.4 trillion deficit in 2009 where did those items I listed show up?

    As I stated earlier, private sector job creation is good however the problem is there are 2 million fewer jobs today than there was two years ago when the stimulus was signed. I would love to be positive but cannot be with the Obama economic agenda. He spent too much to create these numbers, money that didn't have to be spent. The numbers are what I posted and can be found at bls.gov.

    I will never understand an individual sticking to this same BS when the evidence in today's job market goes contrary to your mantra.

    I'm sure you're seen the countless jobs reports that state employers (mostly in financial sectors, i.e., banks) have money to burn, but they're just sitting on it right now. And why? Please, don't come back with the line that it's about Obama's job killing policies because contrary to popular belief most of his financial policies have included tax cuts, not tax increases. Furthermore, the biggest so-called "job killer" - the PPAC - hasn't even gone into full swing yet. Nothing about its implementation currently has anything to do with the business sectors. It's all on the States currently to implement the high-risk pools under the law. So, explain to us how in our current economic environment if businesses have received tax cuts especially considering that the Bush Tax Cuts have been extended thru 2012 and businesses (banks mostly) are sitting on all this surplus cash - money you say if they are allowed to keep they'll reinvest it for the sake of job growth - why the hell aren't they doing it? (Or shall I say why aren't they doing it faster since we are seeing increased private sector job growth per the article in the OP.)

    That was Iraq. That is one of two wars. He has continued to bring troops home from Iraq as per the agreement Bush made with the Iraqi government. Afghanistan he ran on a platform of concentrating on and winning.

    here ya go: bush submitted his budget, which clearly wasn't nearly what was required to keep things moving. so yes, obama inherited the 2009 deficit. what do you suppose would have happened to our economy had obama not spent what what did?
