    Just linking the rotten news...:eusa_whistle:

    ----------------------:eusa_eh:.. (the worst month under any other president in 25 years has beaten the best month under Obama.)


    Under Obama: 30 Worst Months of Employment in the Past 25 Years

    The federal government’s Bureau of Labor Statistics publishes monthly tallies for the employment-population ratio. That stat shows something rather straightforward: Among those who are living in America and are free to pursue employment, what percentage are employed? (The bureau excludes those who are under 16 years old, are active-duty military, or are — in the bureau’s own words — “inmates of institutions (for example, penal and mental facilities, homes for the aged),” from its tallies.)
    Barack Obama

    Over the past quarter of a century (a total of 300 months), dating back to May 1987 and the Reagan administration, here are the 30 worst months (that is, the bottom 10 percent) for the employment-population ratio, along with the president who happened to be in office at that particular time (scroll down to the see the list)

    Since 1961...

    Republican job growth - 24 million jobs in 28 years.

    Democrats - 42 million jobs in 24 years.

    We have just had the fastest drop in unemployment since 1984....from 10.2% to 8.1%. All this in spite of the fact that House Republicans have blocked infrastructure spending bills that would have helped. Why? Because Republicans are more concerned with winning the election than helping America.

    Two of the three biggest parts of the economy have returned to normal, auto sales and retail sales.

    The last piece of the puzzle is home sales. Home inventory just returned to six months inventory which is normal.

    Therefore, housing starts will begin to pick up next year and bring down unemployment.

    We are an aging country.

    10,000 Americans a day are retiring.

    There is going to be a labor shortage.

    Obama.. not so much...:lol:

    Kinda pathetic he has to suck on other Presidents legacies to look good.. ain't it?

    .. and it would be interesting to know who was running Congress during these times, say for instance the Clinton years, he was a pretty much a failure until the Republicans took over Congress, correct.

    Democrats revel in filing Americans that have ran out of unemployment benefits, lost their private business or have essentially given up looking for a job as non-existent..The same thing will happen with Obamacare I'm thinkin...
