I hate to take a dookie in the urinal, but public employment has been reduced since Obama took office
Not federal employment, except for postal workers.

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

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