    Why do I have the feeling that if it were a president Romney in there right now you'd be doing the exact same thing, so quit whining.

    It's ****ing deception and I'm absolutely amazed how people buy such nonsense - considering their reality contradicts this "job growth" or "jobs added" nonsense.

    Oh an who the hell knows if these people being employed are even US citizens - they could be in sourced for all I know or are here on temporary work visas writing computer code (programs) among other things......

    This sound more like partisan cherry picking. The calculated unemployment is legit as long as the sitting president had a "R" on his chest.

    Oh...so your only bright side of the current situation is that the Republicans are worse. Okay. If that's all you got...

    It's Republicans who have historically stated that Presidents don't create jobs when confronted with the terrible record most Republican Presidents have had in that area.

    Republicans are worse, Europe is worse. In fact the entire western world is worse. Can you imagine if the House Republicans had passed even one of Obama's job initiatives?

    Imagine if Harry Reid would have any of the passed house jobs bills come up for dicussion...My there might have even been something passed, then you wouldn't have to whine so much about the failures that are only going to get louder from demos too.

    I feel for you man, you have a tough couple of years comming at you.

    For some reason I don't think you care.
    I'd be happy to answer your question...AFTER you cite your source that says only people receiving unemployment insurance benefits are classified as unemployed.

    Did you think I'd just let you change the topic?

    Republicans are predictably worse. Big difference. Conservative economic policies are failures and we know why. So it's important not to let these losers near the White House again. That doesn't mean a Democratic president can fix the things Bush broke or that recessions won't happen. But it does mean that rational economic policy is excluded from a Republican administration and will always lead to disaster.
