EnviroDude: Types nice, but that is not correct. Obama is down a million or so jobs. Not including the 359,000 that filed for unemployment this past week.


Kindly justify this statement, thanks.

Also, now Obama is officially a Job Creator, how many jobs have the GOP created? President Clinton?

Prior to 2000 the the increasing participation of women in the workforce pushed the numbers up:

You can see that there was a big dip in 2001 which was the .com bubble bursting just prior but it had leveled off by 2004. Since 2009 though we have been in a nose dive.

impaler: Well that was the last metric. GDP, corporate profits, and now jobs, are all higher than 4 years ago.


How much higher would those metrics be if the Prez hadn't been in a GOP stranglehold for most of that time? The stranglehold was purely so things wouldn't get better enough for the GOP to lose 2012 like a retarded kid playing chess. So now they lose anyway like a retarded kid playing Chutes and Ladders AND the country is stunted in its recovery from a GOP clusterfark! Had there been a GOP that took its 2008 loss with grace and did its duty to the nation, we could be so much further ahead by now...

And what really kills me is that a vibrant, dynamic economy of well-educated, healthy individuals can create more wealth for everybody than the mercenary and incendiary practices of 'conservatives' today. It's like the difference between parasitism and mutualism... uh oh, mutualism sounds like socialism... {dog whistle}

Hobodeluxe: I submitted this with the same headline earlier :/

go Obama. grats on the 7.9% unemployment despite all the GOP austerity measures


What farking austerity? Trillion dollar deficits? Record spending levels? What farking austerity? Just because Krugman says that word while you are sucking his dick doesn't mean the US is even close to austerity measures.

Yoyo: There's lies, damn lies, and statistics.

I'm sure if the BLS looks closely, they can also find that many more job seekers.

/anyone need a freelance engineer? EIP.
//yes, a real engineer, not a computer programmer
///although I could do that too if you're willing to pay


Well, you never know. Amtrak might be hiring.

Muta: FlashHarry: i wonder how he'll spin this.

He'll say something like: Obama was lying to you about the jobs numbers all year so he is lying to you now.


I'm gonna go ahead and deem you a wizard now to save us both time.

I'm surprised. I'd figure they'd wait till next month to gin up the numbers so he'd have a talking point.

Once more, with feeling

One. More. Time.
