    It is all about lying about what is and is not meant by the supposed unemployment numbers.

    The question to ask is how many as a percent were employed BEFORE Obama took over and how many NOW as a percent are employed.

    That's not what will be used. I think unemployment will drop below 8 in the next BLS, and the left will cheer because of the false numbers.

    How many times must it be explained that the "Unemployment rate" isn't calculated by UI numbers?

    It's all about the numbers and how each side will spin it in their favor.

    You sound like you think this is a new thing? It's been going on with nearly every POTUS since the BLS has been calculating it. And it would be happening even if it was a GOP POTUS.

    I predict more people will drop out of the work force! making it seem that more people are employed overall.

    Coincidence?

    Obama + dem Congress = economy going down more

    Obama on the ropes + a rep House = economy slightly improving


    Seems to me, we could keep obama, make the Senate a rep majority, put more reps in the House and it's choo choo, gravy train time.

    I have heard on National News networks that there are Big Biz not hiring to make it tough on Obama's re election chances. We all saw the oil companys play ball with the BUFFOON gw bush's party before the 2008 election by dropping gas prices for no apparent reason.Today we see those same oil company's raising prices before the 2012 election for no apparent reason except helping repukes during this election.

    got links to back up what you are saying?

    fyi; we still have a war going on. Iran is making threats to not sell oil. Northern Africa and chunks of the ME are in turmoil.

    hint; that can drive up the cost, demwit.

    The 'apparent' reasons for gasoline price fluctuations are the cost of crude oil and world wide demand. Even a buffoon like you should be able to figure that out.
