    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.
    It is all about jobs and jobs gained as jobs can be counted but regarding unemployment, here are the results. 670K fewer unemployed in October 2004 vs 2003 and the economy improving dramatically. still want to divert to Bush, wonder why? "Your" guy is in the office now and the results are worse today than when Bush left office and that is after added 4 trillion to the debt. That to a liberal is a success.

    No, you don't know what I'm talking about. First of all, I was talking about those no longer in the labor force, secondly, 921K is the total amount, not the monthly change. And it's the monthly change which affects the rate. Thirdly, I posted a link to the BLS.gov website to confirm the number I posted.

    By the way, even the numbers you show of discouraged workers indicates there were almost 100,000 fewer in March than there were in February.

    Those were the results you voted for.

    And in Bush's first 45 months, were there any incidents that may have caused a recession?

    You don't even know what you are talking about, discouraged workers and not in the labor force are two different numbers. Notice the change between discouraged workers in February and March, that isn't 11,000, so keep spinning all in support of an empty suit in the WH. I can see why you need him.

Texas ranked among the worst state by most measures while Bush was governor. And as president, he did nothing to prevent 9.11, saw unemployment swell by more than 2 million, and invaded a country over weapons which weren't there and you still voted for him anyway.

    Love people who claim to be experts on TX and use percentages as that tool. Seems that Texans disagree with you but then again they got it wrong and you are right. Seems that Bush won TX in a landslide and people see percentages for what they are, distorted numbers that don't consider the TX location and the impact that illegals have on the state, illegals that the Federal Govt. cannot stop from infiltrating the country.

    Interesting that with those terrible economic numbers that you claim exist that TX has created more jobs in the Obama economy than the rest of the country combined. It is a pro growth state, no state income taxes, a part time legislature,and a growing economy. I can see the jealousy of liberals all over the nation as more and more businesses continue to relocate to TX including a lot of Caterpillar from Obama's home state. TX continues to get it right, Obama lost TX by over a million votes and in the 2010 TX re-elected Governor Perry in a landslide, and added to is majority in the Legislature and is no filibuster proof. Yes, TX is a disaster and we love it.

Obama supporters are just too easy.
    WTF??

    You're looking at the cumulative numbers again, Con!

    The number of discourage workers dropped by 99,000 in March...
