    He made 1,000,000 workers disappear. No one has ever managed to do that before in history.

    U-6 counts discouraged workers and that number was down 4/10ths of a percentage point last month.

    It is a sad but unalterable fact that the longer a person remains unemployed the less desirable an employee they become. Typical how this article never actually makes an attempt to explain exactly how it is Obama's fault, I guess it is up to the reader to fill in that blank.

    Recovery, get it? Recovery from Republican's disastrous policies. They have nothing new. So what is their plan now? That we all live in piano boxes? There aren't enough pianos.

    They are Boomers retiring!!! And the right-wing extremist Investors Business Daily knows it!!! You have at least 150,000 to 200,000 Boomers retiring every month.

    If you remember, when Bush was trying to privatize SS all you heard from CON$ was how Boomers would be retiring in greater numbers than new workers to take up the slack. Every day CON$ would say there would be more retirees and fewer workers paying into SS as the rationalization for privatizing SS, and now suddenly they know nothing about Boomers retiring. Proving once again CON$ are on all sides of every issue depending on which way the wind blows.
