Sadly, you're right. That's what partisan politics does, mates. You remember how gleefully Democrats toted the death toll numbers in Iraq when George Bush was President. If the number of dead soldiers dipped, Democrats pouted and brought up "well, that doesnt even compare to how many civilians are getting killed!"

Democrats were so invested in partisanship that they were literally rooting for innocent people to die, in order to blame it on George Bush.

Pretty sad all around, mate. But that's what you get when you've got idiots like kevinyc and godzuki, who are more invested in a party than a country.

"how convenient unemployment drops below 8 percent 2 months before election" says conservative idiots. well check it out...this trend has predicted this the last 3 years so its not so much of a coincidence is it? whether not the drop in number truly indicates our economy on the upswing is another argument. but to say the numbers are cooked for obama , right. the department of labor has been plannign this for the last 3 years. this is why i dont get into politics..to many idiots arguing with false information.

The FOX News bias has been especially strange these last few month. They have always leaned hard right, but lately they have gone to the level of home team local announcer, cheerleading like I have never seen. There must be a lot of top down pressure from all the big wigs who set up Romney superpacs to spread the word in a forceful manner.

The old "people cant find jobs, people are out of work" line is phony rhetoric. Unemployment numbers are high because unemployment benefits extend far too long. Numerous studies have shown that if they last 5 years, people find jobs after 4 years, 11 months. If they last 4 years, people find jobs after 3 years, 11 months.


It's extremely disengenuous for Democrats to pipe up about jobs/unemployment. They're the ones who want to encourage people to rely on government handouts rather than work. The proof is there, jobs ARE available. You can find lots and lots of craigslist job postings in EVERY city, mates! People are just coasting instead of working. Funny how the President they voted for has to take heat for their apathy. But that's what it's about. Lazy and selfish. Sure, they'll vote for Obama if he'll help them be lazy and selfish. But once he needs their help? Nah, they're gonna stay lazy and selfish.


Should I be concerned that Starface is checking out Charlotte's Craigslist?

you've been wrong on pretty much every major decision a President has had to make in recent memory, and that goes for almost every Republican or Independent here. Whether its you voting for Bush saying the same things you are now, reelecting him spouting the same garbage, not wanting to bailout and let our automotive sectors go bankrupt with massive job losses when we're already sinking into a deep recession, or not raising the debt ceiling ruining America's credit rating. and all you people do is blame it on Democrats when the stuff you're pushing has been wrong EVERY time with EVERY major decision.

none of you ever own up to shit, you just deflect it on to Democrats, and its funny how you pretend to reinvent the Bush years as being not so bad compared to Obama when he was f'in awful. Wait another 20 years before you try to brainwash people with that nonsense since it wasn't even that long ago. its unbelievable to me how people think we should be fully recovered right now considering how low we were when Obama took office, but thats the right wing spin machine where it somehow becomes a unrealistic expectation/criticism

I can't believe Obama is out there touting this as a huge success. The unemployment rate when Obama took office was 7.8% and now it's at...7.8%. There are less people working than in 2009 and this is after his 1 trillion dollar stimulus. Embarrassing.

That's because they cut so many government jobs. The private sector has been hiring away.
