Heard a fairly in depth interview of Bob Putnam ( Our Kids: The American Dream In Crisis ) by Michael Smerconish about the growing opportunity gap in America. Check it out.


Most startling statistic?

Under-performing wealthy kids are far more likely to graduate from college than high-performing poor kids. The American dream...........not so much.

Ah yes the Obama economy has produced the "Hope N Change" they wanted. Lack of opportunity. Government dependence. It's all going according to plan.

What was it?
why would it matter?? we want to compare it to U6 from before recession to see if Barry has got us back to at least where we were?
No. We want to know what the U6 was when President Obama took office and where it is now. To suggest that he is responsible for where it was before he took office......or even that he is responsible for where it was for a year after he took office......is STUPID.

Fill in the blanks:

The U6 when Obama took office was _________.

The U6 today is ________.

Simple shit.

dear, barry took office in the depths of a great recession. It is a given that things have gotten better as they do 100% of the time and even with a liberal president so the issue then becomes why is Barry's recovery the worst in US history. It is thanks to liberal taxes, liberal regulations, and the continued liberal attack on and destruction of the American family and schools.

Silly nutter.
translation: as a typical goof liberal I lack the IQ to respond substantively.

Ever see a conservative who cant respond?? What does that teach you??
No, retard. A response doesn't signify IQ. You have not made one claim in this thread that is in any way intelligent. Responding to you makes a person less intelligent. I just lost a brain cell.

What taxes? Exactly?
What regulations? Exactly?

Be honest. When Obama took office in 2009 did you claim that he was going to make the economy worse?
