Hhmm...if i go rummaging through all 192 pages of this thread, i will find that the only citations of employment made by you will be from "Total Nonfarm Employment "is that a big ten four?
Umm, no, unfortunately not. You see, Con like to cherry-pick data series' based on the ones he likes the best. Sometimes that is household survey data, sometimes it's payroll data, sometimes it's nominal data, sometimes it's real data. The only consistency you will find in the numbers he posts is that the numbers will constently be the biggest numbers which favor his position.

Obama's results are public record and since he was in the Congress yes, he is responsible for the job losses in February 2009

No, Boehner was in Congress so it was HIS fault. :roll:

Interesting that my chart and yours are the same and both show lower employment numbers today than in either January or February 2009

It was Congress and the President that affect the economy, not just one. Obama cannot blame someone else for what his majority party helped create

Total non farm payroll excludes public sector jobs so what do you want me to include?
WTF?? Where do you make this stuff up from, Con?? You just make **** up off the top of your head, don'tcha?

Here's total nonfarm payroll data (which actually does include public sector jobs)


Total nonfarm

And here's private total nonfarm payroll data (which does exclude public sector jobs)

Total private

Schooled again, Con. Too bad I can't charge ya. I could quit my day job. :cool:

Doesn't look to me like you have a day job, you are always here. One of these days you are going to look back and wonder what happened as you get tired of making what you are making now and being a wage slave, but you are right I misspoke, Non Farm Payroll does include public sector jobs, my error, I apologize.

Thanks for showing that non farm payroll jobs were down as confirmed by the chart I posted.
No problemo. I also lend a helping hand to those less fortunate than myself.

Hey, by the way, did you see that link I gave you to private sector employment?

Jan/2001: 111,634,000
Jan/2009: 110,981,000

8 years under Bush ... and the private sector lost 653,000. G'head, take a look -- the data goes back as far as 1939 and Bush is the only president to leave office with less private sector jobs than when he started.

Ain'tcha proud, Con??

Ohh, so February is the "magic month" now, is it? How do ya figure that? Lemme guess ... because that's when is stimulus plan passed, right? So it's your opinion that it's reasonable to expect that after losing 732,000 jobs in January, 2001, that by the end of February, 2001, we'd show a net gain of jobs because Obama's Stimulus passed on February 17th??

That really sounds reasonable to you?
