colon_pow: maybe he ran them up on purpose so he could bring them down for the election. just like the guy who's going in the joint will get in trouble regularly for the first half of his time, then slow it down to nothing just before he goes up for parole. they see the trend line and congratulate him on a job well done.


And maybe the CIA really put dinosaur bones in the ground in order to dissuade time travel.

So yesterday Obama was an empty suit who couldn't organize a circle jerk if you spotted him all the lefties, but today he's a Machiavellian uber-genius who can manipulate data like Mozart at the harpsichord?

Is there some kind of schedule that's printed so we know which day is which?

It's pretty obvious that Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch pulled a black-bag job last night at the Bureau of Labor Statistics and changed the numbers.

OHDUDENESS: cameroncrazy1984: OHDUDENESS: paramilitary gear brandishing billy clubs

Black coats and berets are "paramilitary" gear now? And I don't see any "billy clubs." Do you?

Yes, they constitute "paramilitary" gear when it's part of a uniform worn by a paramilitary group.
And FFS, sorry, would beat stick be the proper term?

Maybe you'd like to answer the question now that we got that out of the way?


Point out the billy clubs. And please explain to me what classifies two guys as a "paramilitary group"

I get that part. How do they live, if they've given up looking?

o5iiawah: BLS data on workforce participation rate

*Feel free to combine posts*


Meanwhile, labor force participation dropped three percent at the same time as baby boomers start to retire. More at eleven!

MFL: Reagan did it with a GDP growth of 7%.

TofuTheAlmighty And a substantial growth of employment in the public sector. Conversely Obama has had to contend with austerity measures demanded by idiots and simpletons in both parties (but mostly Republicans). If public employees weren't being laid off like crazy, unemployment would be at least a point lower.

1. If government unions hadn't broke state budgets to begin with there wouldn't have been those layoffs.

2. Mr. Obama had to contend with the fact that his ideology and policies are the biggest wet blanket this economy has seen in 60 years.

The fact of the matter is, Obama is doing everything he can to give an appearance of a recovery. Everyone knew unemployment was going to be under 8% by election day on paper. It's not real and won't sustain it. Everyone also knows that QE3 is nothing more than a sugar high for the stock market which we will see crash back to earth after the election.

Obama has used every tool at his disposal to try and artificially prop up the economy this month right now. There are consequences for doing this and they will be severe.His legacy would probably be better off if he doesn't win a second term because when shiat hits the fan people aren't going to want to hear anymore excuses.

Obama/Bernake are playing a very dangerous game right now. But most democrats only care about real issues like free birth control for 30 year old students.

Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Who is this "Ronny Reagan" and what happened to his presidential bid? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?


He was a traitor who made a deal with terrorists to trade arms for their hostages as long as they held them until after the election. He then illegally traded arms for drugs in Central America.

Instead of trying him for high crimes and misdemeanors, they named an airport for him.

bdub77: AkaDad: This just proves Obama is better than Reagan.

Obama is WAY better than Reagan, if closely behind Clinton (and could eclipse Clinton if he had a decent Congress).

My presidential rankings for the past 30 years or so:
Clinton > Obama > Reagan > Bush Sr. > Carter > Bush Jr.


My rankings of the best TV shows of the '80s.
Small Wonder > The Love Boat > Designing Women > Silver Spoons > AfterMash

mahuika: DamnYankees: I'm sure this is somehow bad for Obama.

Conservatives: Job data are phony


You have to go to http://www.unskewedjobdata.com for the real data. It'll show you that the unemployment rate is much closer to 82%, and jumped from 0.1% to over 75% almost overnight on 1/20/2009.

I'm just re-weighting the data.

No, he's both at the same time.

He's also a Muslim-socialist and a radical-Christian-fascist. simultaneously.
