Very valuable tools. The use of which you accept or reject depending upon what results they provide. Not a lot of integrity there. As for the projection itself, when was it $9 trillion by 2019, and do you know whether it has been revised since then?

There would appear to be two possible answers to that last question. No, you don't know whether it has been revised since then, in which case you are no source of information to be relied upon, or yes, you do know whether it has been revised since then, but are pretending that you don't, in which case you are no source of information to be relied upon.

Save your breath. Saggy is incapable of accepting any facts that expose Obama's failures. Like a good marxist, if the facts do not support his views, he simply changes the facts. What else could be expected of someone with an ID ending in "nista"!

Well, there were 4,010,000 new hires this past September. How did that happen do you suppose when unemployment is the highest it's been since the days of Ronald Reagan? How many of those new hires do you suppose were in whole or in part induced by stimulus-created demand?

I feel sorry for the future generations of Americans who will live in a third world country like the United States of America.

OMG - completely off the deep end.

You mean we added 4 Million jobs in Sept?

Wow. They were pretty well hidden in the 4 million we've lost since obama took over.

This kind of "calculation" makes somebody look like a laughingstock.

Yeah, Mexico may want to build a wall to keep us from coming down to take all their manufacturing jobs.

No, the 4,010,000 new hires this past September comes directly from BLS's JOLTS Survey. They publish monthly press releases.

A little over 4 million new hires, yes. I'm surprised you didn't know that. For all the spouting off you do around here, one would have thought that you would be a lot better informed about things than what turns out to be the actual case. It appears that you just shoot from the hip in whatever unsupported direction your partisan bitterness happens to dictate.

Yes, it does, but I'm not sure you've caught onto whom just yet...

So I guess those fantasy 4 million hires cancel out the real 4 million that have lost their job since obama took office. Neat trick.

This is like comedy gold!

The Bagdad Bobs of their generation........
