I hope we can one day fix how unemployment is calculated. It's absurd to not include those who stopped looking.

How can you add jobs when unemployment continues to rise? One of the mysteries of the federal government.

Reporting I saw was wrong, already changed the title...



Having said that, I think we can guarantee that unemployment will not be below the magical 8% for the election.

8% is just the new norm

I don't think we'll ever see unemployment dip below 8% for an extended period of time

AS I have stated several times, the business community is sitting on their hands until Obama is gone...

Obama hasn't appreciated the "make it happen" type A business people of America... they don't trust him, they don't like his policies, and they really don't like being told "pay your fair share"...and "you didn't do that"...

Agreed... Why the hell would they want to make any sort of investments in labor when the president wants to take more of their money and force them to provide benefits to ALL of their employees.

Powerman, you know that's not true!! True unemployment is so much worse. Thanks for your explanation though.

Look at the numbers by state and your jaw is going to hit the floor. In some states it approaches 30%. Young AA's it is 30 % across the nation.

Its amazing that 3 1/2 yrs after Obama promised us unemployment wouldn't go above 8% if we got his 900B stimulus Bill, that it STILL isn't below 8%

The revised number for June was 60,000 jobs. See this is why we are seeing all of the talk about Romney's taxes because they simply cannot run on their record. You will never hear DA, Otto, Rex or any of those guys talk about Obama's record. It's just a sad pathetic page out of their playbook to divert away from the truth.

Actually, it is 15% when you add the people who quit looking.

I've asked numerous times and never get a response... You don't necessarily have to be Pro-Romney or even think he would be a great President.

But how in the frick can you support Obama over Romney... Obama has done NOTHING to put this country on a path back to prosperity.
