    First of all, I am a native New Yorker - born, raised when to school there. Migrated to Oregon in 1972. Next, I don't believe anyone taught me that Congress controlled employment. For you to suggest that, make you look silly.

    Keep buying the Obama rhetoric while ignoring the Obama results. How about all those shovel ready jobs that were going to keep unemployment from exceeding 8%? Yep, seems like a lot of incompetence in this Administration that many still support. Seems that so called "Great Bush Recession" which started with a Democrat control of Congress still is in place today 2 1/2 years after Obama took office. Explain how Bush got back into the WH and created the numbers we see today?

    So Congress which controls the Legislative process has no control over employment but the President who can do nothing without Congressional support does? I apologize to the people of Oregon and now question the civics taught in NY. Some here would say causation does not equal correlation but guess guess that only relates to good Republican data

    The finance meltdown/recession were caused by Bush's "hands off -get out of the way" policy. This was evident in the Deepwater disaster as well.

    That is your opinion and nothing is going to change it. What has Obama done to correct the problem? The results today show that you have backed a failure

    Ok, now THAT is pretty damned funny.
    Personally, I find it in bad taste that the President has a sense of humor in this time of global and domestic turmoil.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    i agree....and i think was also in bad taste that Michelle filmed an episode of Exreme Home Make Over in Fayettville NC right after deadly tornadoes left countless people homeless in that part of the state

    That rate looks pretty good today as does the Labor force number when Obama took office. He can really get that rate down by continuing to lose labor force members as they are no longer counted as unemployed. Lower labor force means lower number of unemployed and a lower unemployment rate. Facts howver 25 million unemployed or under employed Americans in July 2011. Try blaming that one on Bush. That appears to be 38% of the people who still support Obama.
