    Scott Walker lost more jobs than any other Governor!

    http://www.newser.com/story/144793/w...in-nation.html

    Yessiree Bob!

    This is your conservative ideology at work!

    Newser) – Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's efforts to keep his job took a hit this week by way of a report showing how many voters lost theirs. Between March 2011 and March 2012, the state lost 23,900 jobs, more than any other state in the nation, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report. Some 17,800 of those were in the public sector, but the state also led the country in private-sector job losses with 6,100, reports the Christian Science Monitor. Only Mississippi and Rhode Island also saw the number of private sector jobs shrink in the same period.

    I do not understand your question. The unemployment rate is lower now under Obama than it was when he took office.
    Now Bush's policies actually lost jobs.

    Here in IL, Democrats are pretending there's no recession and just borrowing more money than the state can pay back. Perhaps we haven't lost as many jobs as WI...but the chickens will come home to roost. Oh, did I mention they also increased our state income tax by almost 70% last year? They also nearly doubled the usage fees on the tollway system.

    I guess it's all good here in IL according to you lefties...

    I see "Truth" isn't a value that is very important to you.

    Unemployment Jan 2009 7.8%
    Unemployment April 2012 8.1%

    I hate the break the news to you but 8.1 is not less than 7.8.


    People Not In Labor Force Soar By 522,000, Labor Force Participation Rate Lowest Since 1981

    it is just getting sad now. In April the number of people not in the labor force rose by a whopping 522,000 from 87,897,000 to
    88,419,000. This is the highest on record. The flip side, and the reason why the unemployment dropped to 8.1% is that the labor force participation rate just dipped to a new 30 year low of 64.3%.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/people...te-lowest-1981
    The main reason the Unemployment rate has even dropped is because so many are LEAVING the workforce.

    Quite simply, I was curious as to whether or not you had one standard for Scott Walker and a different one for Barack Obama. Both of your posts in this thread have confirmed my suspicions. Thank you very much and have a nice day.

    Not nearly as much as the moratorium affected the oil industry. Shrimping was back to full speed pretty quickly.

    2007 was when the Republicans' house of cards began to crumble and our economy fell into its near-death spiral. Luckily, we had a change in leadership the following year which began to turn things around and, as the chart shows, in less than a year our unemployment rate (the last thing to recover in the recessionary cycle) began its improvement. That should continue if the perps don't weasel themselves back into positions of power later this year.

    The world has its fingers crossed.

    A high speed rail system that we can't afford and don't need that will likely be a hole to throw money into for generations. That I know of, there is not one high speed rail system in this country that's self-funding. In other words, the taxpayers will be subsidizing rides well into the future.

    Of course, this also neglects the fact that IL is borrowing more money to pay for our portion of the system.

    Now the house of cards has been set up again with wreckless borrowing. Good job, Mr. Obama....in delaying the inevitable...

    Funny, as soon as the Democrats took over Congress.

    Either your lying or your just ignorant of the fact that by far the biggest reason the unemployment rate has dropped is due to people dropping out of the workforce. Obama has shown he can't create shit.



    The world has its fingers crossed.
    The world? Fingers crossed? You aren't seeming very confident of your master. If he's so great, this should be a cakewalk for him.

    Obviously the charade that is Obama has been disappearing ever since he took office. He has the super wealthy, the media, the poor, and the really stupid; all significant in some respect but that alone won't put him over the finish line. He has no record to campaign on.

    I's too bad you don't know much about American politics because the head hauncho promised that blue sguigghly line would never rise above 8% if we simply allowed him to spend a trillion dollars here and there to stimulate the economy(It must have been opposite day in Bikini Bottoms) Furthermore, he and his sidekicks promised a "summer of recovery"....2 years ago. His "recovery" (which hasn't yet transpired) has taken longer then the typical 18 month recession.

    But hey, it's the fault of the Tea Party who refuse to budge on raising taxes. After all, if we could just tax everyone 100% of everything then we'd be less in debt

    Hey Cd, how come you failed to report these new job numbers?

    Contrary to previous reports, WI economy added 23,000 jobs in 2011

    On Wednesday, the state Department of Workforce Development released what it billed as actual 2011 jobs data, based on reports from 160,000 employers. The data show Wisconsin’s economy actually added 23,0000 jobs between December 2010 and December 2011.

    That’s vastly different than BLS’ Employment Statistics data, which estimated a net loss of 33,900 jobs in 2011 — a swing of 57,221 jobs.
    The difference here is that Cd's numbers where from a tiny sample, where as these current figures are hard numbers

    If true, it shows that a strong president in the White House can more than offset the failures of a state governor locally.

    We already know this.
