    Some real employment (or "unemployment") data on Obama's lousy economy

    Some pretty lousy data on employment---- if this is good enough for any of you I suspect younmay be an Obama supporter:

    Effective youth unemployment 16.1%

    U6  at 14%

    Lowest labor  participation (63.3%)  since 1979

    Worst recovery since 1929 

    The official “seasonally adjusted” jobless rate for Black youths between 16 and 19 years-of-age is  40.5 percent

    the official jobless rate for all Black workers (youth, female and male) in the United States is  13.2 percent 

    The unemployment rate for minority youths is  approximately 33.8 percent for African Americans and 28.1 percent for Hispanics

    • So many more people unemployed under Obama versus Bush.

      A national tragedy.

    • Don't try to use logic and facts with those idiots.

    • Sorry to confuse some of you lefties with real data and facts.

      I know you guys, like dropkick, dejerks, and kollenoscopy, prefer stupidity, emotion,and lies.

    • You have to compare the number of full time employed compared to the number of working age people in the country. Then you have to look at spendable income to see how well America is doing. Too many people on disability, part-timers because of impending Obamacare, people not looking for work, but probably working in the underground economy not paying taxes and possibly still receiving benefits.

        The Benghazi Talking Points
        And how they were changed to obscure the truth

        Even as the White House strove last week to move beyond questions about the Benghazi attacks of Tuesday, September 11, 2012, fresh evidence emerged that senior Obama administration officials knowingly misled the country about what had happened in the days following the assaults. The Weekly Standard has obtained a timeline briefed by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence detailing the heavy substantive revisions made to the CIA’s talking points, just six weeks before the 2012 presidential election, and additional information about why the changes were made and by whom.

        As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.

      • "you have to compare the number of FT employed compared to the number of working age people in the country"

        --- that's the labor force participation rate.

        I agree with you on the rest. That data is there, is mediocre at best, thus contributing t this as the weakest recovery in +80 years.
