    Have you heard pundits saying that jobs are up 4.1 million under BO? That made me curious to look at the numbers. So I did.

    Here is the Bureau of Labor Statistics stats:

    Bureau of Labor Statistics Data

    I put those numbers into a spread sheet and it is minus 1.3 million jobs since January, 2009. So don't listen to the media's lies that Obama is creating jobs.

    Actually they say private sector jobs are up 4 million in the last 27 months, which dishonest CON$ervoFascists change into what you said.

    Everyone knows that jobs are a LAGGING indicator and were continuing to decline due to the GOP policies that created the Bush Depression even after the day the complete failure left office.

    Yeah, how dare those aging Boomer bodies break down with the passage of time! Don't they know they have to work, no matter how crippled they become, until they drop dead on the job. :mad:

    If retirements and labor force was the issue then the unemployment rate would be at an all-time low. It’s not. Your point is an outright fabrication. There might be more people retiring BUT there are still far too few jobs available even AFTER retirement.

    Funny how other Presidents tended to get out of horrible economic problems after 2 years, but now we're working on 4 with no recovery in sight!

    They didn't have an obstructionist GOP doing everything they can to prevent or at least slow any recovery, as you well know but would never be honest to admit.
