Bureau of Labor Statistics Data
From your own source: http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000

Civilian labor force participation rate


Civilian labor force participation dropped by 1.5% during the Bush years, and dropped by another 2.1% during Obama.

So are you also blaming Bush?

Your guy is in charge now, and he said he would fix it.

Five years of failure.

Default More nonsense GOP narrative

No, the village idiot is largely regarded as the worst president in American history. "Frighteningly ignorant" he was described as being by our European allies. The current positive press he's getting because of his library of Dr. Seuss books is a FORMALITY. Not surprising that you desperate Pubs are clinging to anything to try to give the impression that you party is not the symbol of pure regression, ignorance, ineffective policies, bigoted ideas, obstruction in Congress, warmongering, pettiness, and policies designed to fortify the rich while everyone else goes to hell.

Dubya continues to curse this country in the form of the Republicans in Congress and the Supreme Court.

This country is still trying to recover from 8 horrific Bush years.

President Obama far superior to the village idiot.

Doesn't look like failure to me:

  • Unemployment down from 10% to 7.6%!
  • Stock Market up from 6,500 to 14,700!
  • Osama Bin Laden .... DEAD!
  • Iraqi War .... ENDED!
  • Housing Prices ... RISING!

Bush CREATED the problems ... and Obama is FIXING them !!!

Five years of great success !!!

You mean after Bush doubled it from 5 to 10 trillion ... and then left Obama with a ONE TRILLION dollar annual budget deficit, which continued to add a trillion to the debt each year for the next 5 years?

Is THAT the Debt you are asking about?

You're stuck with the Supreme Court appointees.

With regards to the Republicans in Congresss, they gained majority in the House AFTER BO took office. You also failed to get total control of the Senate when you re-elected BO. If BO can't convince the country his party should govern single-handedly that isn't President Bush's fault.

Quit whining.
