Obama Hell: When Bush Left Office Average Length Of Unemployment Was 19.8 Weeks; NOW IT’S 40.8 WEEKS

This was what Obama said yesterday (Jan 6, 2012):

“Altogether more private sector jobs were created in 2011 than any year since 2005,” Mr. Obama said during a visit to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Friday. “There are a lot of people that are still hurting out there. After losing more than 8 million jobs in the recession, obviously we have a lot more work to do. But it is important for the American people to recognize that we’ve now added 3.2 million new private sector jobs over the last 22 months — nearly 2 million jobs last year alone.”

The problem is this man is a liar from the bottom of the pit of hell.

You want to see the hell that unemployment hell Obama has given us in a single graph?

No, no, you stupid liberal: that’s not a rocket ship blasting up into space; that’s your messiah’s average duration of unemployment that is blasting straight up into the stratsosphere.

The average duration of unemployment when Bush left office was 19.8 weeks.  That’s how long it took the average person who lost a job to find another one.  Now it is 40.8 weeks.  If you’re REALLY lucky.

Thanks for that “fundamental transformation” of America, Barry Hussein.

And here’s the truth about how many jobs Barack Obama HAS DESTROYED, as measured by the labor force participation rate (which for you liberals is the percent of people who are actually PARTICIPATING in the labor force):

Yes, liberal, I know.  That DOES look like a rocket ship plunging out of space on its way to a terrible crash.  But that’s what happens when you give a fool the U.S. economy.

The labor force participation rate was 65.7% on January 2009 when Bush left office.  It was 64% as of December 2011.  And when you’re talking about a working-age population the size of America’s that 1.7% is HUGE.

Obama isn’t creating jobs; he’s DESTROYING JOBS.

Even Ezra Klein states that if the same labor force participation rate applied from the Bush years, the actual Obama unemployment rate would be at 11 percent. James Pethokoukis of Reuters calculated it at 11.3 percent.  And Tyler Durden using the most recent data calculates it at 11.4%.

That’s the truth.  If you pay attention to the actual facts and ignore Barack Obama’s lying mouth and the propaganda of the mainstream media.

The actual work force – thanks to Barack Obama’s morally and logically depraved policies – is 2.5 million jobs smaller than when he took office.  That’s how many jobs have simply ceased to exist.

The reason the unemployment rate is going down is because it is measured in a fraudulent manner that does not take into account the discouraged workers who are simply dropping out and abandoning the work force.  Because the reality of the Obama failure has crushed every reality they have ever cherished.  For them, “hope” is dead.  And “change” is hell.

As I pointed out nearly a year ago, at the ‘rate’ we’re Going, we’ll have a 0% unemployment rate but no one will have an actual job.

    I don’t believe this chart – I am a republican but looking for honest answers not [deleted by moderator due to profanity] I GET ENOUGH OF THAT ALL DAY LONG LISTENING TO THE DAILY NEWS.

  2. Michael Eden Says:


    Which chart don’t you believe? The first one that comes from the Federal Reserve or the second one that comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics?

    Which is to say that BOTH charts are as official as it gets, and if you don’t believe them why not just pump your brain with the MSNBC Kool Aid flavor of the day?

    But of course you don’t have the honesty to tell me which chart you don’t believe. And I’ll explain why:

    Please don’t tell me you’re a Republican. You’re not; you’re one of the numerous dishonest liberal swine I encounter every day who pretend they’re “objective” as opposed to the rabid little demoniacs they truly are. No, rather than admitting that you are a liberal – and yes you SHOULD be ashamed for being a liberal – you want future readers to falsely believe that here you are, a REPUBLICAN for crying out loud, and I’m just so far outside the mainstream it’s not even funny. Bullcrap.

    You’re not a Republican; you’re far too STUPID to be a Republican.

    Yes, these are honest charts. Both of them are official charts from the best official sources to compile them. The problem is that YOU’RE not honest, not that the charts aren’t.


    MY sister has been unemployed now for 2 and a half years..Her life has been destroyed. Thanks Obasta*d.

    I haven’t watched it in years, but there was a show on called “Married with Children.” It was about a completely dysfunctional family.

    The mother would always say, “Children, thank your father for [something that he screwed up or selfishly did that resulted in the family being deprived]/

    And the children would say on cue, “Thanks, dad.”

    Thanks, Obama.

    I can’t believe this. How dumb do you have to be to overlook the simple fact that the length of unemployment is naturally going to increase when a recession starts (before Obama took office) and will fall at some time after the economy recovers. If this kind of simple math escapes you, it is no wonder that you’ve worked yourself up into the rabid foaming-at-the-mouth state of hatred that your writing reveals.

  6. Michael Eden Says:


    Speaking of dumbass things…

    We are CONSTANTLY LECTURED every damn day that when Obama took office, we were losing 750,000 jobs a month, but that it’s all better now under Obama. HOW DUMB DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO OVERLOOK THE SIMPLE FACT that no recession has ever lasted forever and that things invariably reach an equilibrium – which is to say that Obama has NOTHING to be boasting about, does he?

    So right back atcha, you dumbass.

    That said, there is a reason that whereas your Obozo crap above is crap, my point about unemployment is valid for SEVERAL reasons.

    Reason number one is because hypocrite dumbasses such as yourself constantly tell everyone who will listen how terrible things were under Bush and how wonderful a job your messiah Obozo is doing. But that just aint true on virtually ANY measurement you want to compare (including this one).

    Reason number two is that – hey, DUMBASS! – your messiah and your messiah’s mainstream media propaganda keep telling everyone that the recession is OVER. And this dreadful length of unemployment wasn’t taken a year ago or two years ago when Obama was failing; it was taken THIS FREAKING MONTH when Obama is STILL failing.

    We are now into the fourth year of Obama’s presidency and things are crappy.

    The simple fact of the matter is that you are the intellectually retarded hater who isn’t smart enough to comprehend that.

    Now get lost.

    Pleeaassee People! Theres jobs out there! Waa..waaa…waaa…my sister cant find a job!

And as far as your ” charts” do u know how many fake charts I’ve seen.. Everywhere!! The all look legit and are either manipulated to look good or bad for the President. It depends on who’s tryn to make a point!

    You’re right. Everything’s going marvellous right now. Better than ever. The Ministry of Truth would never lie to us.

    Don’t believe that millions of jobs have simply VANISHED under Obama. Don’t believe that if we used the SAME labor participation rate today as we did when George Bush left office unemployment would be 11.4 percent now. Don’t believe that 88 million working-age Americans have simply dropped out of the job force altogether. Don’t believe that workers are unemployed more than TWICE as long now as they were when Obama took office. Don’t believe that Obama’s budgets have been so incompetent and so evil that not even a SINGLE DEMOCRAT would vote for his budgets in TWO YEARS.

    Your 16-year-old son got a job? Congratulations: good thing he’s not a college grad or he’d be SCREWED under Obamanomics. Thanks to Obama, the college graduate employment rate is the highest it has been in America in well over forty years.

    George Bush had 52 consecutive months of job growth – the longest streak in US history – to go with 6 consecutive years of economic growth and (GDP) growth by more than 17 percent (a gain of nearly 2.1 trillion dollars). And people JUST LIKE YOU DEMONIZED HIM ANYWAY, KRISSY. Please don’t be yet another abject hypocrite liberal who says how dare you do to us what we did to you.

    Personally, I belive the charts and don’t believe your homespun stories of Obama’s mighty job engine. Because YOU’RE the liar “tryn [sic] to make a point!”
