    The only way in which someone would "vanish" from the unemployment rate is to abandon job seeking altogether. Whether or not that person receives UI matters not. Your original contention was simply malinformed rubbish

    In fact I did look it up and never saw this quote. Where is it? You must have copied it from somewhere, right?

    Okay, you made it up and we both know it. That's become just too common and good people should stop doing it.

    However, this was not true with Romney's 47% remark. It ruined him with Independents and on the fence centrists who ended up not going to the polls over it. It killed him in key white blue collar states. He was a complete moron for allowing himself to be seen for, sadly, what he probably really is. An out of touch country club GOPer that sickened centrists on the fence. He ruined his centrist flank.
    You are absolutely right.
