    In keeping with the Un-success tour of Obama's, failure is hailed as success.

    Are you better off? Just 96,000 jobs added in August as 368,000 people LEAVE the workforce in bleak employment report dealing blow to Obama re-election hopes
    Lowest workforce participation rate since September 1981
    Jobless rate drops to 8.1 per cent but only because workforce shrinks
    President Barack Obama knew of figures before big speech

    Just 96,000 American jobs were added in August in a bleak monthly jobs report as 368,000 left the workforce, bringing labour market participation down to its lowest level for 31 years and dealing a blow to President Barack Obama’s re-election chances.

    Just proves that the Republican House's poorly disguised effort to undermine the economy has been fruitful.

    Well, still, it's almost a million jobs better a number than what Obama faced when he took office.

    I have come to the conclusion that the Democrat party is in fact the party of stupid.

    More wars? That's fine...

    Guantanamo still open? That's cool...

    Economy still complete shit 4 full years later? Bah, Bush's or Republicans fault!

    Deficit out of control? (More shit out the mouth)

    Military spending grows past Bush era levels? Blah blah blah blah... Republicans blah blah blah...

    Bush era tax cuts in place? Well yeah, because Dems didn't wana raise taxes on middle class and the poor!!!

    Tax cuts in the Stimulus and had outs for the rich? Sweet!!! Obama is GoD!!!!!! YayayayyayyYAYAYAYYAY!!!! Maybe Obama will run on Mitt and Reps wanting to give more tax cuts as a bad thing even when Obama brags about doing it!!! Awweeeeeoooossssmmmmme~~~~ So smart, he's just sooOOoOoOo smart.

    I have never voted Republican or Democrat, so I’m sure my post comes across as 100% bias despite it being absolutely factual.


    If Obama wins, and I don't care if he does because Mitt is the same person... You can expect another 4 years of a dismal "recovery" that plays horrible numbers like Republicans play with "Support the Troops!" You can't attack horrible numbers if Dems pull crap out of a bucket of shit and call it GREAT NEWS!!!! Or you "hate the recover." See how that works... "Support the troops".... "You hate the Recovery....." Same tactic.... R-E-T-A-R-D-E-D

    Like I said, the party of stupid.

    You guys can go play unemployment percent politician fun time. The only numbers that matter are how many are on the job rolls.
