    Obama has said..
    "And what I want to do is build on the 5 million jobs that we've created over the last 30 months in the private sector alone."

    PolitiFact | Barack Obama says his administration has created 5 million jobs

    So explain the following:
    if there were 5 million jobs created, why is there 17,000 fewer employed people in the USA?

    I'm not guessing here! Follow this link to the Notice: Data not available: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
    to the Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Download the xls file like I did!

    At the end of 2008 there were 143,350,000 people employed.
    As of September 2012 there were 143,333,000 people employed.

    So where are the 5 million jobs created???? if there are 17,000 LESS people working???

    Ohh they are the same place all those jobs Romney promises are.

    Vaporware for fools to believe.

    Partisan hacks do not believe facts they believe their current hope and changey messiah.
    Be it a TP candidate, RINO or Librul.

    Maobama lost them, then he found them again, bingo, 5 million jobs right out of thin air. It's like those 500 trillion in tax breaks Romney is going to give to 124,000 families, accdording to slow Joe today. You know that's more than 40 billion per family. It's all pulled out of their commie asses.

    Maybe the 5 million jobs that were created haven't been filled!

    You might want to refigure that. Obama did not become president till Jan 20, 2009.
    for those of you who skipped Civics class in HS. Or is that class next year for you?

    FactCheck: Obama’s inflated jobs claim
