Look who's posting the famous Bikini Graph in postcard form... And with good reason:
8.3% is a number, among others, that the GOP is trying to avoid.
Exactly, Billy. And each site has its own guidelines. If you failed to read ours, then I suggest you do that now, gobnait. Just as stores, movie theaters, and our public roads have rules, so do we.
We try to keep our comments civil here, which is why we have a loyal, and large readership.
If civility is something that is difficult for you or anyone else, then feel free to comment at another blog.
Anamerican is not contributing to the discussion, simply name calling. Heard of the phrase "ad hominem" attacks?
"Job creators"? The Fox talking points have arrived! Those wealthy "job creators" have had their taxes cut since Bush was in office... and he lost hundreds of thousands of jobs... none were "created." Give me a break. Facts are facts.
The graph says it all... Obama's "created" 4 million jobs, had two years of growth, and top economic experts, even GOP, have confirmed that.
Bush's tax cuts, unpaid-for wars, and unpaid-for Medicare plans were never part of the budget. Obama added those in, and has compensated for Bush's idiocy.
If you're going to come here and parrot Fox, don't. They're not credible, nor are your comments.
Thanks for visiting.
It's patently absurd for a moderator to post personal political comments while 'editing' those of others. How is it fair that you control the narrative?
Obama's overreaching regulations, threats of higher taxes on the job creators and the uncertainties surrounding Obamacare are PROLONGING the recession that 82% of Americans polled believe continues. Small business owners are afraid to hire and afraid to expand their operations.
I think Whitehouse.gov could enlighten you better than I can. That's where the details of the full plan are. Do read it.
How exactly? By the ever increasing premiums that are already rising or the $500 million Obama is taking out of Medicare? Do enlighten us.
That "law" will help the economy if it ever gets to take its full effect in 2014.
And if Mr. Obama had focused on the economy first instead a law [ that looks like it will be overturned] for his personal achievements we would be in a whole lot better shape now !!!! He wasted a year and a half !!!!!!!
Why not parade this graph in the faces of those 1.2 million folks who dropped out of the job market recently? I'm sure they'll be so relieved to see it. Since the administration knew they couldn't get away with announcing the jobless rate went down, they decided to leave it at 8.3% for now...so we wouldn't catch on.
REAL UNEMPLOYMENT WITHOUT DOCTORING BY OBAMA ADM IS 9.1% ACCORDING TO GALLUP-- REAL UNEMPLOYMENT IS CLOSER TO 11!%
BECAUSE IT IS A LIE!!!
Just as what happened to the economy on Bush's watch landed the responsibility for it on him, same goes for Pres O.
You can't blame Obama for a bad economy and not blame Bush, nor can you credit Obama but not credit Bush for what happened when he was in charge.
President Obama's policy's have helped the economy, that much is clear from the data, just as Bush's drove it into the ground.
anyone who thinks that the upswing in job creation was caused by obama is an idiot.
no president is that powerful or that smart. The economy, and job creation is a complex organism with millions of players and millions of inputs.
Obama can push a button here, pull a lever there. but in the end, he or any other president is not smart enough to control the beast.

your head must be stuck way up Barry's anal canal.
We should hang a "I am a failure" placard on his back and put a dunce hat on his head. Then make hin stand in the corner until he quits talking...or just take away the telepromter.
When I heard that this morning, I could smell the smoke coming from the ears of the GOP leadership. They so want unemployment as far above 8% as they can get it. They are the ones waving the 8% threshhold around...when it goes below, they have NOTHING to hang on this President. Love it! Go Obama! Think how low it could be if the GOP had cared one iota about creating some work for people. It they had not demonized public workers all over this country, I think we'd be at about 5% now.
