This is bad news for Obama not the conservatives.

Team Obama is by far the most corrupt administration in our history and our future is grave with Obama in power.

This is bad news for the US no matter who sits in the Oval Office people.
More are just "dropping out of the workforce"..that is not good.
Sure the boomers are retiring but the first wave of boomers just hit 65 last year..the height of boomer births was 1957 and they won't turn 66 until 2023.

Yeah, right. Because if you can't find a job in this economy, without a doubt it's your fault and yours alone. Never mind trying to fix the economy; we all know that life is fair, and all unemployed people simply aren't trying hard enough.

All of you, my fellow citizens have committed the cardinal sin. Do not elect fanciers or lawyers. Do you know what they do for a living? They fundamentally work in a field that stakes claims on wealth. A security is a wealth claim. Making and changing laws also stake claims on wealth. Would it be too much trouble to ask you all to vote for someone who makes it for once?

Never elect bankers or lawyers. Never.

Now I can't vote for a fancier?
Dang it!!!!
Back to square 1.

Maybe just a few dollars more... like maybe a fistful?
Nice Clint Eastwood reference.

The civilian labor force contracted by 368,000.A more encompassing measure of unemployment, which counts those not looking for jobs, fell to 14.7 percent from 15.0 percent in July.
But job reports for June and July were revised lower. The June count fell from 64,000 to 45,000, while July's number came in at 141,000 from an originally reported 163,000.'


Kinda makes your statement look a little foolish. Doesn't it?
A putrid month, and rolling quarter, as the last 3 months total 304,000 jobs is only enough to keep a stable workforce flat for TWO months. If the 368k did not see so little hope they quit, the rate would not have dipped.

Reagan got it down to 7.2% by November of 1984, which is why he was re elected.

I know several people who went out of work over the last few years, not ONE of them are still out of work, and most of them took about 30 days to find a new job..

If you cant do it in two fricken years, its not the economys fault.
