    Never overlooked it at all but what do you expect when you spend over a trillion dollars to stimulate the economy? Let me know when the employment numbers get back to what they were when he took office. Obama record, 2 million fewer employed now than when he took office and 3.5 trillion added to the debt. Apparently you missed those results which have been posted many times.

    I did notice that in Bush's last 12 months the total unemployeed+discouraged increased by 4.6M or about 383K/mo. I also notice that the current trend is in the right direction.
    I posted three charts there, unemployment, discouraged workers(where I got the million a month), and total unemployment+discouraged workers. Here is that chart separated. See it now?

    Thanks for the info.... However, I do think that area has enough unemployed to fill any job demands. I have a couple of kids who did that kind of work around here, and the pay and benefits were lousy.... High turn over rate, and the work tentative to say the least since people have to have jobs or income to buy things....

    The millions of real wealth generating private sector jobs that have been stripped out of this country have not returned, and until they do no amount of stats, or low paying computer sales jobs will stop the collapse of our Republic....

    While Americans are focused on a possible government shutdown and heated budget standoffs in the states, the U.S. Senate is considering legislation that isn’t getting much attention, but is even more important because it threatens to destroy one of the greatest aspects of American exceptionalism – innovation.
    Did you know that Americans are responsible for roughly 90% of new inventions?
    While overregulation and taxation harm America’s ability to compete with other countries to attract and keep businesses that create jobs, our greatest stock in trade is the American spirit that fosters innovation, and the world’s strongest patent system to protect inventors’ rights.
    As Phyllis declared in a recent New York Times article, “This bill would be death to innovation in America,” and we must stop it from passing!
    S. 23, the so-called “Patent Reform Act of 2011” will destroy our patent system by setting up a system that disadvantages small inventors in favor of large corporations, makes it easier to infringe patents, easier to challenge patent rights in administrative proceedings and in the courts, and makes it more expensive for inventors to defend their patents.
    All this is being done in an effort to “harmonize” with the rest of the world. Why on earth would we want to harmonize with countries that don’t protect intellectual property rights? Other countries should be harmonizing with us to improve their systems.
    Killing innovation in America would not only kill jobs and economic growth, it would cut off the world’s largest supply of new ideas and inventions. Where would we be without American inventions from light bulbs to dialysis machines? Innovation vastly improves, and can even save our lives. We must fight to protect it!
    That’s why Eagle Forum and a long list of conservative leaders and organizations, including former Attorney General Edwin Meese, sent this letter to every Senator and Member of Congress urging them to oppose any so-called reform that would kill innovation.
    The Senate has been considering this bill throughout the week, and are likely to vote on final passage on Tuesday.
    We need you to call your Senators Monday and Tuesday to tell them we need to protect innovation, not litigation. Urge them to vote NO on S. 23, the Patent Reform Bill of 2011.

    I am sure that you will notice the 110.9 million private sector employees in January 2009 and the 108.3 million in February 2011. Looks to me like a 2.6 million decrease after spending over a trillion dollars to turn this around. How do you explain less private sector jobs today than when Obama took office?

    It's easier to blame Bush, than it is to explain how spending a trillion FAILED to improve the picture.

    Absolutely...the thing that the Obamabots never want to talk about or admit is that in counting their supposed jobs, they count anything. If you were a software tech, that made upper 5 digits, and take a job working some check cashing hole for $9 an hour with no benefits, well then you are employed....Back to work...

    This group in the WH now lies with ease. Remember the stimulus jobs that were "saved" or "created"? They were counting some jobs more than one time, and even going as far as counting those jobs that only worked say 4 hours in any particular week as jobs for the month. What a joke.

    The numbers are skewed. I believe that the rate is really closer to 15% or even 20% when you take all the factors in to account. You want solid manufacturing, and business enterprise to come back to America? Then we have to show them the incentive to do such. And we have to sell them on the idea that America is great again. Something Obama can't do because he doesn't believe that.

    Thank you President Obama for preventing a meltdown and stimulating job growth.

    Great job! Jobs and the economy will be the focus of the next election.

    Absolutely, congratulations President Obama for showing the world how naive, gullible, and misinformed liberals are and that they will always vote based upon rhetoric and not data or facts. Jobs and the economy will be the focus of the next election and creating less employment than when Obama took office will resonate.

    Except that you've been caught multiple times twisting Data, quoting it out of context and then denying or refusing to acknowledge that you've been caught.

    So you talking like this is well... ironic.

    Interesting, prove it. You buy what the other liberals tell you and ignore their distortion. What exactly have I misquoted or twisted? I give the sites where i get my information.
