    Sheesh.. talk about swimming in icy cold waters..:lol:

    Obamanomics, smoke and mirrors, can't improve the reality of a failed President and the Democrats liberal agenda. All that's left is blaming someone else for it..:lol:

    -------------------------------------:wtf:


    If the same percentage of adults were in the workforce today as when Barack Obama took office, the unemployment rate would be 11.1 percent. If the percentage was where it was when George W. Bush took office, the unemployment rate would be 13.1 percent.

    That helps explain a seeming contradiction in the unemployment numbers — the rate keeps dropping even though job creation has been soft.

    In April, the U.S. economy added a mere 115,000 jobs, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data released Friday. In a normal month, that would not even be enough to keep up with new entrants into the labor market. But in this economy, it was enough to drive unemployment from 8.2 percent down to 8.1 percent, the lowest point since January 2009.

    The explanation is a little-watched measure known as the “labor force participation rate.” That tracks the number of working-age Americans who are holding a job or looking for one. Between March and April, it dropped by 342,000. But because the official unemployment rate counts only those workers who are actively seeking work, that actually made the unemployment rate go down.

    Critics of the Obama administration have been quick to seize on this as the real reason for the falling unemployment rate. In February, the Republican National Committee released a research note on “The Missing Worker,” arguing that “over 3 million unemployed workers have called it quits due to Obamanomics.”

    "In an accompanying poll, the news was even worse about the public’s perception of the overall economy with 33 percent believing that it’s getting better compared to 47 percent who see it getting worse."

    "And those polls were done before today’s dismal employment report where far fewer jobs were created than expected and the unemployment rate u-turned and went up to 8.2 percent."
