    1. "In Saturday’s weekly address President Obama said we’ve created nearly 4 million new jobs in the United States in the last 2 years."
    Obama Claims 4 Million New Jobs « Inform The Pundits!

    2. "In the State of the Union Address on January 24th 2012, President Obama said:

    In the last 22 months, businesses have created more than 3 million jobs. (Applause) – Barack Obama, State of the Union, 1/24/2012" Ibid.

    3 .the White House link to the video includes a pretty graphic that clearly shows that 3.2 million new jobs had been created.

    Thirteen days later, in an Obama campaign ad on February 6th 2012, the President said:

    There’s more work to do, but you might be surprised to hear the progress we’ve made. Twenty-three straight months of jobs growth, nearly 3.7 million jobs added.
    – Barack Obama, Campaign Ad, 2/6/2012

    Now, in last Saturday’s White House Weekly Address, President Obama upped that number to “nearly” 4 million..." Ibid.



    Now...ready?



    4. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are fewer people employed now than back in January 2009 when Barack Obama was sworn in as President, and there are more people unemployed now than in January 2009.

    Back then, a reported 142 million people had jobs. In July 2011, 139.2 million people had jobs.

    In terms of employment, the private sector is smaller now than when Obama was sworn in. In January 2009, 110.9 million people were working in the (nonfarm) private sector, but by July 2011 there were only 109.9 million - despite the larger U.S. population in 2011.
    RealClearMarkets - More Unemployed Presently, Than In 2009

    a. Employed, June 2012 142 million

    Again?
    Sure....'cause it's a little tricky, numbers and all....


    "...[in 2009] 142 million people had jobs. In July 2011, 139.2 million people had jobs."


    So....wadda ya' think...142 million plus 4 million is.........

    ....139 million?



    5. ZERO net job growth from 2009 through 2011
    Obama Claims 4 Million New Jobs « Inform The Pundits!

    ZERO?????

    ZERO JOBS?????

    Now....Barack Hussein Obama wouldn't lie about this......

    ....would he????




    So....what the heck has this guy been doing for three and a half years????

    I think he conveniently forgets about all the people not even drawing unemployment now because it's been taken away from the....the ones that have given up finding work. And the MANY people that have lost their small businesses (would not be on umemployment) and all the people (like my son) that works on contract with construction companies, etc that also cannot draw unemployment when they're off work. And THEY aren't even being counted! But the libs all have excuses for this....he says something and it gospel to them. Forget about any of them actually wanting to know the truth! Obama said it, it has to be true! Idiots!

    All of the President' claims of jobs were based on a reference of February, 2010. You're citing speeches a few months old, and things have gone up a little since then, but let's use current data.
    January 2009 there were 133,561,000 total and 110,985,000 private sector non-farm pay roll jobs.
    February 2010 there were 129,244,000 total and 106,773,000 private sector jobs. Losses of -4,317,000 and -4,212,000 respectively.
    June 2012, there were 133,088,000 total and 111,145,000 private sector jobs. Gains of 3,844,000 total and 4,372,000 private sector.
    But that is still -473,000 total jobs since Jan 2009. +160,000 private sector (though it still would have been a loss when he gave those speeches).

    So Obama was right about gaining 3-4 million jobs since the low point of Feb 2010 though misleading since it was still not up to the level when he took office.

    And the critics are right that it was still down from when he took office, but misleading in that they ignored that it had gotten a lot worse and then has improved from the worst.

    To sum up: We lost approx 4.3 million jobs in the first 13 months Obama was in office, and have gained back 3.8 million of them in 28 months. So we are recovering, but very slowly. I expect we'll gain back the next half-million by October so he'll have a around a net zero change going into re-election.

    The Unemployment data has never ever been based on eligibility or receipt of Unemployment Insurance Benefits. Anyone available and looking for work is classified as Unemployed.

    Now for the Jobs data Obama has been quoting...those are non-farm payroll jobs and do exclude the self-employed and agriculture. Those are all included in the Total Employment figures used to calculate the unemployment rate, though.

    Note that the Jobs data are NOT used in any way to calculate the UE rate. Different surveys.

    I love it when PompousCheek, the most condescending poster on USMB, mocks others about "numbers and all" and then she tries to count back 20+ months from 2012 and ends up at Jan 2009. :rofl::lmao:

    LOL. Are you as dumb as this post suggests (meaning you actually believe what you posted) or do you believe the readers of your post are dumb?

    Remember, there are liars, damn liars and statistics.

    1. Boooooooooooosh. Yep, the hole dug by the Bush Administration included a sink hole; a sink hole which continued for years.

    2. Day by day, month by month, the GOP and their surrogates - you my 'deer' - worked aggressively to make the economic crisis worse (the only thing we have to fear, is fear itself - and fear was and remains the only tool in the bag of dirty tricks of the far right.

    3. America, What Went Wrong:

    a. How game was rigged against middle class

    b. The lucrative business of bankruptcy

    c. Big business hits the jackpot with billions in tax breaks

    d. Why the world is closing in on the U.S. economy

    e. The high cost of deregulation: Joblessness, bankruptcy, debt

    f. For millions in U.S., a harsh reality: It's not safe to get sick
    How death came to a once-prosperous discount-store chain

    g. Raiders work their wizardry on an all-American company

    h. When you retire, will there be a pension waiting?
    Workers saving for their retirement lose on junk bonds

    i. How special-interest groups have their way with Congress

    Most of what you advocate brought us to the brink of collapse in 2008 and has created the greatest span of wealth between the very rich and the rest of us since 1929. Yet your wish is to do the same thing under Romney and expect a different result. We all know what that is, don't we?

    Why can't people just leave Obama alone.

    He is "evolving" for the benefit of our nation.

    And that takes a lot of self sacrifice and personal time on the golf course. :cool:

    Gotta love still blaming Bush. Should Obama get re-elected, they'll be saying thhat all the way to year 8.


    But really, the president can not create private sector jobs. he can merely steer the govt. away from curtailing private sector initiative adn making ventures look enticing.

    Now, he did create jobs though. Several 100,000 new federal govt. jobs. Which of course, cost the taxpayers. So while he's a business man's nightmare, he's a big govt. hero.
