PTSD not to mention the length of time for many veterans to get their claims process may have contributed to that as well. Oh but as usual lazy azz Americans see a number or a % and they run with it without any thought

Veterans don't account for the millions who opted for a certain check instead of beating their head against the wall tying to find a job that simply isn't available.

Why not? They are eligible for disability, especially since it takes so long for the VBA to process their claims.

(crickets would be whenever I ask a neo-con to provide non-biased sources or PROOF of their wild claims... or when I ask what they do for a living, lol)

I don't recall Obama initiating 2 uncalled for foreign invasions - can you?

Wait, if Obama has adopted most of Bush's policies, then why do you still hate him so much? You should be happy he's still in office.

They have surpassed that in the last 4 years. Why does your chart stop at 2008?

The difference between Biden and Cheney is that Biden actually cares about people. You can't say the same for Cheney. And yeah, Biden has aged EVEN MORE, haven't we all. What's your point?

Obama already has a higher net job creation than Bush did during his EIGHT disastrous years as president. Keep in mind that Bush left Obama a nice going away present in the form of 3.5 million job losses during the first 6 months of 2009. Obama wasn't handed a budget surplus, zero wars and 5% unemployment.

Bush = the ultimate failure

Those were the years that they profited mainly from government contracts.
