    Now that's pretty funny coming from you, someone results didn't matter to in 2004.

    When you voted to reelect Bush in 2004, the Twin Towers were gone, over 2 million more people were unemployed from when Bush started in 2001, and Bush had invaded Iraq over WMD that weren't there.

    Those were the results you voted for.

    Did you ever find out the economic policy that Bush implemented on January 22 that put us in recession on March 1?

    When I voted for Bush those weren't the numbers and when I voted for re-elect him there was significant employment and economic growth

    Your comments are again typical of a liberal, distorted and wrong

    Employment numbers

    2001 137778
    2002 135701
    2003 137417

    Not in Labor Force

    Had you read the article I posted, you would have seen the reason the unemployment rate dropped...

    The economy added 216,000 jobs last month, the Labor Department said Friday. Factories, retailers, the education and health care sectors, and professional and financial services all expanded payrolls. Those job gains offset layoffs by local governments.

    But g'head, keep hoping and praying for the economy to collapse again, just so you can see a Republican in the White House. What a patriot you are.

    Really? Wonder why BLS shows the following? Looks like 921k to me, not 11,000. Obviously you don't know what you are talking about.

    More than twice, he also voted for Bush for governor at least once, maybe twice. Double that for voting for Bush in the primaries too and Conservative may have given Bush as many as 8 votes!

    I've asked him how many times he's voted for bush (including primaries) but he's too embarrassed to answer.

    Not embarrassed at all but irrelevant. Told you how many times I voted for Bush for Governor and President. How does that affect the Obama results? Seems to me that rhetoric trumps reality in your world and always will. I can see why you need that massive liberal Central govt and nanny state promoted by Obama. You would never survive here in TX.

    Now this is too funny. You accuse me of distorting and being wrong, however, I [accurately] claimed that unemployment increased by more than 2 million during Bush's first 45 months and you try [and fail] to show I'm wrong and distorted the numbers by posted employment numbers!


    That's not what I said con, I said, "over 2 million more people were unemployed from when Bush started in 2001."

    Unemployed:

    Jan 2001: 6,023,000
    Oct 2004: 8,061,000

    BLS.gov: Unemployment Level

    Those were the results you voted for.

    By the way not in the labor force is different than discouraged workers or people who have dropped out of the labor force. You really are desparate to distort this President's results. 921,000 people are removed from the unemployment count in March. What affect does that have on the unemployment rate? Obama supporters are just too easy.
