    U.S. April hiring slows, jobless rate falls to 8.1 percent - Yahoo! Finance
    Under Bush teh Dems complained about a "jobless recovery". Under Obama we've got a "workerless recovery" as people drop out of the workforce. Ironically this makes UE look better.
    But the story behind the story is that people are discouraged. The weakest recovery on record. The highest spending. Do we really need 4 more years of this?

    The last FIFTEEN unemployment figures have been revised UPWARD. We're not adding enough jobs to keep up with inflation, let alone make a serious dent in the unemployment figures.

    Wait for the "the economy is on the right track" threads to start popping up...

    This is the worst recovery in modern history.

    Women absorbed 92% of the Obama job losses and over half of young black men are unemployed.



    Which begs the question for our resident Libtards:


    How's that hopey changey thingy workin out for ya?

    Democrats are going to say this is a dramatic fall, like an increase up to 10% is a modest rise.

    We have no idea what the real percentages are because the democrats lie. After several months, buried on page 14 will be a revised figure that may be closer to the real numbers. By then democrats will have wrung out what ever they can wring out.

    Remembering Reagan and our hostages in Iran

    Iran announced the release of our hostages the day [or day after] Reagan was sworn in as prez.

    I have this vision in my head that the day after Romney is sworn in, companies large and small will exhale loudly and go on a hiring binge, dropping unemployment by a very big whop !

    When they dont count the people who fell off the numbers due to their benefits ran out ,or the people who have a part time job but want a full time job, or the people who are under employed. And how many of these jobs are min wage jobs
