    economic expansion, Unemployment in the low to middle 4% range, expanding payrolls, booming economy.

    • total unemployed is actually at 17.2%

    • Obama is just trying to deal with the pile of garbage that GWB left him. Eight years of GWB has put us where we are at. I don't care who had followed him into office, they were screwded before they ever got there.

        --------------------------------------------------------------Could be, however remember that Clinton left Bush a mess and GWB had the economy going at this point in time.
        And Obama led all of the lemmings to believe that he had a plan, and that he would have 'Change you can believe in'
        and they chanted 'yes we can'. Now we want them to do the change and the yes we can and he is flopping horribly.

    • You nincompoop, it is well know that there are a lot of people that simply stopped trying to even look for a job. If you add them to the 9.8% reported figure, you get a number around 18%. Anyone with half a brain knows that.

      exactly right Boechair, however you do need half a brain, which leaves lo-pants out

    • did you even bother to investigate where cpwr got his claim that unemployment was over seventeen percent?

      did you even bother to investigate if there is something called the Household survey, with a workforce participation indicator?

      tell me how you know cpwr is telling the truth, if you DO NOT KNOW what the truth is?

      The Labor Department said Friday that the U.S. economy lost a net total of 263,000 jobs last month, from a downwardly revised 201,000 in August. That's worse than Wall Street economists' expectations of 180,000 job losses, according to a survey by Thomson Reuters.

      The unemployment rate rose from 9.7 percent in August, matching expectations.

      If laid-off workers who have settled for part-time work or have given up looking for new jobs are included, the unemployment rate rose to 17 percent, the highest on records dating from 1994.

      All told, 15.1 million Americans are now out of work, the department said. And 7.2 million jobs have been eliminated since the recession began in December 2007.

      Here is the link since you no saying to yourself that Limbaugh made up the numbers, stocker.

      Uhh you're the one who watches "Blabberman and Madcow." Your repeated jabbering about Maddow being a hot lezbo is hilarious.

      Personally I find them both overtly smug and irritating as hosts....which segues into my overall distaste for TV's "news" media: it's become all about the reporter-as-celebrity and not about what's being reported. Cult of personality, etc; the messenger shouldn't override the message, but we've adopted a cult of personality.

      News anchors have devolved into talk show hosts, wherein there is zero analysis (because the avg viewer/US citizen is just too stupid to be allowed to think on their own) except from the pundit class...but nowhere do you see anchors attempt to control the conversation to the degree that Faux News does.

    • Tell me, Lo_Blow, what is the definition of the word "EXCELERATING"? Is it a synonym for the word "defecating"?

    • <<< nowhere do you see anchors attempt to control the conversation to the degree that Faux News does. >>>

      To which Fox news anchors are you referring?

    • <<< Islam is the religion of peace. >>>

      Pray tell "Buck Private Verm", who attacked or criticized the islam religion?
