Just sour grapes from the Right Wing. The American public should be disgusted by them. Instead of cheering for improvement in the economy, they are

How low can they go?
Since you're having difficulty comprehending what is happening here, please allow me to break it down for you both carefully and
Let's begin with a basic math problem, shall we? Unemployment decreased by 465,000 yet only 114,000 jobs were created. Take 465,000 minus 114,000
equals 351,000. So Obama magically made 351,000 working Americans simply disappear from the jobs roll. Where did these 351,000 people go? Did
aliens abduct them and take them to Alpha Centauri? I think not!
If you look back over the past 14 months, there have been a rather consistent number of people "Disappearing" from the work force; between 250,000
to as many as 400,000 per month. Using conservative math, you are looking at a minimum of 5 million working Americans simply vanishing from the work
force. This doesn't even account for the hundreds of thousands who are joining the workforce every month. They're not counted because they aren't
"Active" in the workforce and by Obama's Labor Department's definition, aren't included because they haven't officially ever been a part of the
So, in summary, this administration has stopped counting people looking for or desiring employment because if the pool of available workers were
FACTUALLY counted, unemployment would be well over 12%! In fact, add in under-employment and the REAL number is in excess of 18%! So, this
administration, with the help of the DOL, continues to shrink the number of people in the workforce to show a lower unemployment number.
See? It is simple - you just have to employ some logic and the truth is quite easy to see!
