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

    Fact 921,000 have been dropped from the labor force and are no longer counted as unemployed. What affect does that have on the unemployment rate?

    The 2001 recession ended nearly 3 years before Bush's reelection.

    What I find rather funny is folks spending all this time talking about Bush instead of this exciting news that Obama will be seeking re-election.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    Right, and Bush won re-election with improving economic numbers and a pro growth economic plan. Obama's plan is the exact opposite, bigger govt. and the nanny state which seems to motivate people like you.

    That is all Obama supporters can do, to divert from the Obama record. Sorry but I have to do a better job not letting them sidetrack the thread.

    Re: Obama announces his Candidacy for 2012.

    I would like to see Romney in office. I like his economic stance, foreign policies as well as focusing more on home instead of THE U.S. Police force. Plus both men are very good speakers that would lead to some interesting debates. I believe the edge would go to Romney with his experience. Obama was a fun little distraction with all the change and such, but I am ready for a functional president that can talk AND do...

    the same effect it's always had, which is why the rate is relative. give it up.

"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.

    As those numbers reveal, there were 2,038,000 more people unemployed when you voted for Bush, yet you deride people who say they will vote for Obama.

    By the time you voted for Bush, the unemployment rate increased 31%. So far under Obama, the unemployment rate has increased 14%.

    Yet for some reason, you feel justified in your vote for Bush but don't feel Democrats are justified for voting for Obama.

    You're a hypocrite.

    Look back at my post. I was talking about those not in the labor force, not just those who dropped from the labor force because they were discouraged. You then responded to my post with discouraged workers.

    And as far as discouraged workers, there were 99,000 fewer in March.

    Where's your applause? Doesn't that make you happy?
