They may as well be rolled in dollar bills.

I think there are two ways of looking at it. One is that cigs are expensive, the other has to do with the Obama logo with "Taxes" written under it.

19.1% real unemployment, eh? So, do we get to look at other president's numbers then Brainy?

You are trying to use one number for the rest, and another for Obama if you want to argue that.

Seriously, to try to argue that we should use different unemployment numbers under Obama then we have for every president since Bush Sr/Clinton is disingenuous at best.

P.S. The U6 number in 2001 was over 20%. U6 doesn't mean much in this context.

it doesn't matter about them. all that matters is the current rate is bonkers and not good.


but your facts are wrong:

7.3 7.4 7.3 7.4 7.5 7.9 7.8 8.1 8.7 9.3 9.4 9.6

u6 rate jan - dec 2001. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics


Unemployment Rate - U6 - 1994 - 2012
