Not true. This doesn't count the people that have stopped looking.

No one will ever compromise with a communist. You are watching the rebirth of Hitler and are to blind to watch it happen right before your eyes...
Fortunately for the sheep who blindly follow the corrupt leader to the destruction of our country, We will save you all in November...
If you believe what you say, you have no clue about politics, find a new hobby because you suck at this one...

I'm going to call shenanigans on this, as this is a hyper-partisan attack completely disconnected from reality. Also, it doesn't belong in a thread about the economy in an economics forum. If you want to insult Obama, the Democratic party, or discuss politics, there's a forum for that.

Save us? With who Mitt Rodney? This multi-millionarie is so out of touch with the average voter it's laughable. Obama may not be the best president, perhaps not even a good one, but he's certainly not the worst. As for being uneducated in politics, perhaps you should bush up on your history. One of the main reasons Hilter came to power was the fear of communism. Hilter was very anti-communist. To suggest the current president is a communist AND the next Hilter shows you lack of understanding of politics.

Thats my approach

Anyone who honestly thinks the unemployment rate is below 10% is an idiot. Don't believe everything you hear. Look around you.

The recession will last as long as the credit ratings of the tens
of millions of people who lost their homes, or their jobs stay bad.
So, lets see, the crash hit in 2008, right?
7 years from 2008 the recession will start to end.
A good majority of the American people will start to get
their credit restored and the economy will start to improve and
jobs will come back. Period.
This country is a capitalist country. We all depend on each other
for our jobs. Unless the American people spend money, the whole
country comes to a halt. Like Dominos. Same thing.
Unfortunately, because we are the consumer powerhouse of
the world, we also affect the rest of the world.
You know, the new world order, under Bush the 1st.
But the difference is the American people consume more than
any other country, in everything.
Not the rich, no they don't buy 3000 cars even though they can
afford them, they invest their money, but they aren't the driving
job creators, the middle class working people in the USA are the job
creators. They are the spenders.
They are the people who lost their jobs in 2008. They couldn't spend
if they lost their jobs. It's all about jobs.
The middle class create the jobs in the USA. Period.
Until the middle class starts spending again, like they were,
everyone will suffer.
We all depend on each other for jobs.
2008 plue 7 equals 2015 that is the year the recesssion will start to
come to an end.
The banks did this. You know, the banks that own the counry?
They shot themselves in the foot. Greed.
Oh well, and no one will learn from it either.
You can't blame politicans, they are all bought off anyway.
United Corporations of America.....
