shotglasss: Heb: Seems a bit of a rubbish fact-check which misses the point. Surely the point is that there have been £4.5million new jobs since the recovery took hold? Wish we had your kind of private sector growth here in the UK, but unfortunately we have a conservative government that went with the utterly failed "austerity" option. The magic job fairies have not arrived, and we are now all ruing the lack of a stimulus that would have boosted our economy.

You are damn lucky to have Obama, and utter utter fools if you vote for Romney's economic discredited madness.

Just in case you haven't noticed, Obama has been an utter failure over here. How about you elect him to Queen of England or some such and we'll happily ship him over to you in late January when we're done with him.


Yes. An utter failure. Stabilised your economy during a world-wide economic crisis, delivered steady private sector growth and rescued your car industry. We, and much of the rest of the world, would kill for that kind of failure.

Still, far more important than that is his secret plan to collude with the UN to take your guns, or whatever the batshiat crazy talking point you lot have today. Honestly, it really is (as Romney suggests) about the economy. The difference is, Romney wants to go back to utterly discredited failed policies that caused all this mess. You would have to be an utter utter utter utter idiot to vote for him, but worryingly you seem to have a fair few of them.

Let's see if I have this right:

Obama jumped into the locomotive of a train running down a cliff at full speed - backwards.

Then, not only does Obama get the train stopped, he gets the train moving back UP the cliff, to the point where we are now on level ground and moving forward with increasing momentum.

And that's the criticism? That Obama had to pull the train back up the cliff before we could move forward as a country?

In comparison, the jobs lost under the Hoover administration (-6.4 million) were not regained during the Roosevelt's first term (+5.5 million). That gain consisted mostly of alphabet soup jobs - WPA and the like, which were reduced or eliminated as we transitioned into a wartime industrial footing (many military jobs, plus "private" manufacturing jobs that were 100% government-subsidized). It wasn't until the late 40s and early 50s that unsubsidized private sector job growth approached pre-Depression levels.

In sum, Obama has done in three years what took Roosevelt and Truman 16 years to accomplish. Truly, Obama is history's greatest monster.

Here in Wisconsin we call those Walkerjobs. That's where two people lose their family supporting jobs, and one low paying job with no healthcare is created. Unemployment is up, but Walker goes on and talks about all the jobs "he created". That's a Walkerjob.

Article summary: it was true, but we have to find a lie because we found some that the GOP told. See GOP, we are fair.

Wasn't '4.5 million jobs created' only half of the line? Followed immediately by 'over the last 29 months'? Progress is progress.
