I'd honestly be interested in your explanation of the relevance of your links. I am serious and open to hearing a different point of view.


I will say that it SEEMS to me to be akin to one saying "Your kids are suffering from malnutrition" and you responding with "They eat plenty! I give them 50 Snickers Bars every day. They usually do not even finish them all. So, they get plenty to eat"

along the lines of a food analogy...
the UE% is about as accurate a method of judging the health of the economy as the BMI index is at judging ones health.

from one of your links
quote:

The unemployment rate surged to 10% in Obama's first year in office and has fallen gradually since then, landing at 7.8% as of December. Part of the decline has come as some Americans have gone back to work, but also because many workers have dropped out of the labor force.

I honestly haven't put much thought into it. Wasn't really thinking when I posted the links, doing other stuff at the moment. Finalizing some engagement letters for clients and comparing some TV and prices and wondering if they will go on sale for the super bowl in the next week or two.

To tie this in to the "Biggest Lie of the Year" thread, Obama repeatedly told the lie that his administration "created" 5 million jobs during his first term. This is obviously completely fabricated as job production only number appproximately 300,000 in his first term - a historically low number. How is thr not a bigger lie that Romney saying that he read an article that Jeep as moving all production to China?

I'm not really an Obama hater, at least in the sense that I dislike him more than any other President.

You either trolled really well with those links, or have deficient economic cognition.

What is the employment totals?

Is there a link to see how many people are working at the same time(month) every year?

Are more people working now than when Obama took over and how do the numbers compare with past presidents?

Workforce participation rate.
U6 unemployment rate provides additional insight.

Dammit, you ARE bad at economics. Everyone knows the best TV sales occur in the month after the Super Bowl. Why would they reduce the cost of an item PRIOR to an event that increases demand for said item?
