Obama's "Unemployment Rate" Lies: Currrently only 63.6% of Americans are in the Work Force – the Lowest Rate in 30 years!

Screw the government's definition of "unemployment rate". 

The fact of the matter is that currently 63.6% of Americans are currently in the work force - the lowest rate in 30 years -  with 342,000 dropping out just last month alone.

Even with the  job losses in the Public Sector that are the alleged fault of just the Republicans, Obama still plays touts Unemployment as forever improving and doesn't force action as though it were a true national priority. 

OBAMA IS ALEC

There's a lot of Baby boomers

There's a lot of Baby boomers that are retiring right now and the Koch bought GOP Governors are slashing state and local jobs (they made the Norquist pledge too). The employment numbers are calculated the same as they were 3 years ago and there is a trend of steady improvement although it is still indicating a weak economy. The Republicans have blocked and obstructed most of the efforts to help grow the economy. Republicans are blamed because it IS THEIR FAULT!

 Sorry to mess up that trolling, hope America fails, hate fest you Fox Bots are producing.

Here's a link to the unemployment numbers. There is a steady downward trend on the graph.

Unemployment is more directly

Unemployment is more directly linked to the GOP than to anyone else.  I distinctly remember them campaigning on jobs in 2010.  Because of their promises of creating a massive amount of jobs they were able to take over congress.  Where are these jobs that they "promised" they would create if elected?  Shouldn't this be titled " GOP's job cration lies"?

The GOP has more control over unemployment than the President has or even the Democratic party at this point.  The unemployment rate should be directly tied to the GOP.  That's not a cop out, that is the truth.

Well Miss Kitty if that is

Well Miss Kitty if that is the case why didn't obama say so.

Seems to me he just kept shoveling 8 point something percent unemployment onto the People as though the were crazy for complaining.  Hell, his administration even went off an partied in Columbia. 

And how about your alleged improvement in employment.  I question whether any recent alleged decrease in the rate of unemployed really means what it used when concentration of wealth continues to grow and the debt load of the 99% is soaring. 

And how about those college grads that are either unemployed or underemployed (being still being counted toward an "improvement" in the "unemployment rate").  Seems to me they're not retirees or government workers. 

Finally, can you give me the actual number of people who lost their jobs at State Governments ran by the GOP?  The GOP is filth, but i think the folks they let go at government jobs is pretty hit the unemployment rate a while back.  You can't keep using it as an excuse for worsening unemployment.

You are a moron and an Obama zombie of the worst kind.
