Obama celebrates 4.2 million new jobs over the past 26 months...


Problem is the population has increased >4.5 million over that same time period... you're going the wrong way!

Obama shrugs

So in other words the increase in government jobs is now considered "businesses".

That's a fact, jack.

Back to 2006 levels -- largely because the states and local governments have had to cut back so much the last four years.

This will ruin some people's day. Kinda like how taxes are slightly lower, too.

So Obama claims there has been an average of over 16100 per month created. Seems questionable to me.

Other than simply beating Obama, this is the exact kind of recover Republicans should be cheering...

Fewer jobs in the public sector, offset by increases in the private sector.

Yes. That is true. Alas, the primary reason we are seeing a drop in public sector jobs is because we freaking ran out of money. Talk about closing the barn door after the horses are already out!!(No, I'm not saying that is only Obama's fault but it IS the fault of people who share his ideology that nothing is too expensive if you like the idea of the program)

America has spent the last several decades STARTING every discussion with whether we want a thing and basically NEVER discussing if we can actually afford the thing. Worse, we use dumb logic to justify things we like. IE, "well, we're spending on that dumb thing my opponents like". Problem with that logic is it can be used EVERY time leading to basically EVERY expenditure being justifiable.

Americans are basically like 5 year olds who thing first, last and always about what they want and not about what it costs(especially about what it will cost in the long run)

If it will be too expensive tomorrow, we basically couldn't give a rat's ass.

Not federal employment, except for postal workers.

Federal, except postal workers Jan 2009 - 2,064.2
Federal, except postal workers Apr 2012 - 2,202.4

U.S. Postal Service Jan 2009 - 727.6
U.S. Postal Service Apr 2012 - 618.8

Total Federal Employment Jan 2009 - 2,792
Total Federal Employment Apr 2012 - 2,821

Total Private Jan 2009 - 112,041
Total Private Apr 2012 - 111,020

LINK vs LINK

Which recovery should Republicans be extolling? Federal employment is up since Obama took office and private employment is down.

Holy frick you are a hack...

He is pointing out the fact that there is no true recovery. Workforce participation rate is still heading downwards and that is ALL that is keeping the unemployment number under 9.

They don;t care what happens to the country.
They don;t care about people..except Obama winning.

What they get out of that, who knows. But the cognitive dissonance concerning real data is appalling.

Sounds like some of the far right though...


Obama is a disaster. I think he will make Bush look like a great president 15-20yrs down the road.

Not at the federal government level where they have exploded. That's where Obama has direct oversight as President and the power to just call for printing more money out of thin air. Brer posted this bit that you simply ignored.

States and local governments can't print money. Since the private sector isn't hiring and its the private sector that pays the taxes to support the local governments, there is less money coming in to them. They can't call the Chinese for a loan like the feds.

No.

With regards to the OP, I'm saying that Obama is trumpeting the stats that make him look good while ignoring the far uglier truth.

Which makes him... a politician.

And a skilled politician would call him on it by throwing the labor force participation rate numbers back in his face.

I doubt Romney will do an effective job of pointing this out.

I heard Hannity making a lot of hay over the job participation rate on his radio show about an hour ago though.

With his allies in the media, I don't think Obama will have much trouble selling most of the sheeple on the official unemployment rate being all that matters. Obama just needs that number to be under 8 percent come election day and he's in like Flynn.

Obama is a master of spin and I wouldn't bet against him. Romney has yet to show me that he will do much, if any, better than McCain did at returning fire or going on offense.
