Default Obama Administration and Job Loss



Note that the source is not Fox News. This is what happens when you stop listening to Glenn Beck and Bill O'Rielly - you get the FACTS.

Name one large news organization that gives ALL the facts... I'm waiting... Oh wait, there isn't one, including Fox News. As far as the graph, it is indeed accurate, there could be many explanations for it. Many times it takes months and months before a new President has much effect on things like this, and yet you can see it had already started to go down within a few months. Also this was bound to happen regardless of other things, the economy crashed, and started to regain a bit of itself. People started spending wiser, banks started being smarter, etc. If Bush was in still I would bet my money on a similar graph.

I didn't really watch FOX much during the Bush administration(didn't watch hardly any news), but I got so sick and tired of watching/reading liberal bias that Fox is really refreshing. Does it have a right slant on it, yes, but I don't think the slant is near as much as many other news org's that slant far to the left.

How do they figure the stats for this graph? is it people collecting unemployment or actual jobs lost?

i know the graph doesn't calculate in many factors but I also wonder what a graph would look like that showed employed people that had to take a pay cut or benefits were taken away? what about people forced into an early retirement?

Ooooooh, a graph! From the federal government no less! And it's posted on the internet by some guy who doesn't even live in the United States! I don't see how anyone could question the legitimacy of this.

Anyways, you're not even an American, why are you so invested in Obama and spreading his lies and propaganda around?

I think this is another "STFU to the foreign kid" moment.

Here's another graph from the same web site you pulled that one from:


It's a good thing unemployment never went above 10% and Obama saved the universe from imminent doom. Oh wait... Fortunately, most of us refuse to be so easily hopenotized and this disaster of a presidency will be over in a little less than three years.
