    I couldn't believe it when I saw it.

    This is an interactive map of the US that shows how unemployment has grown the last few years. It's not only amazing but downright frightening. Yet Obama and the Dems aren't really working on the job angle. AZ is just too damned important to them.

    Seems it's gotten alot worse since Obama inherited this economy.

    What's really alarming is how much worse it's gotten since passage of the Stimulus.

    This map comes up all the time. It is really appalling how bad it went from 4.6 to 9.7

    The map shows how unemployment has spread like a cancer all over the US and the press is practically ignoring it.

    Wonder how they'd be covering it if Bush was prez.

    It's well more than 10.0 here in Georgia, above the national average. Especially in the metro Atlanta area. Good jobs here are pretty scarce, and if you find an opening, you're gonna be competing against 100-200 people.

    I've lived in this area since 1968 and been in the job market since 78 as a teen. I've never seem our job market THIS bad. Not even when Jimmah Cahatah was Governor then Prez.

    Which says the shit for brains sitting in the White House has even outdone JC in terms of jobs and putting Americans to work. At least here in Georgia. Impressive. :cuckoo::evil:

    24/7/365, Wall-to-Wall coverage if this were Bush.

    "It's the economy, stupid". "AMERICAN CITIZENS NEED JOBS, stupid".

    You listening dumbass in the White House?

    Nope.

    He's trying to accuse the GOP of standing in the way of all of his "Awareness" legislation.

    Even though he still has a super-majority in both the House and the Senate the Dems are going around requiring a 2/3 vote. Wish they had required that in everything.....we wouldn't be in the mess we're in today if that were the case.

    Well look on the bright side if we get the Democrats out of the Senate (so they lose the majority) we will have a higher unemployment rate than France (10.1%) by that time. Not a bright side really but at least it proves that socialism largely fails, in bad or good times. ;)
