Mitt meant the REAL unemployment rate,  not this fake Obama created liberal media lying "unemployment rate," despite the fact that the rates are calculated exactly the same way regardless of who is in the oval office.  You just don't get it, do you.  Obama is destroying America and you, and others of your ilk, sit there twiddling your thumbs. Well, you'll see.  The sky is falling and one day it's gonna hit you right on the punkin head and all us teapartiers are gonna say "WE TOLD YOU SO!"  Right, Arch?  Bert?? Seawolf???

No he did not.  He meant the same unemployment rate that they have been using for the last 3 decades.  As I pointed out in prior post.  No one ever used those not seeking employment which BTW, is only 5 percentages higher than it was under Bush.

Like all lefties, you are blinded to the truth.  The unemployment rate methodology, when it produces a nice low rate under non-Demoncrap prexies, is an unbiased look at the real situation. When that same methodology produces a nice low rate under a Demoncrap prez, it's liberal lying twisting of facts.  What matters THEN is the "percent of workforce employed," basically a meaningless stat when non Demoncraps are in office but when Demoncraps are in office it's the way non Demoncraps "prove" the REAL unemployment rate is more like 35%.

Sheesh.  You guys never will get it.  Us teapartying American patriots may as well give up trying to lift the veil of ignorance from your eyes, you're all clinging to it so tenaciously.  Why is that?

If the real unemployment rate is 35%, then it was 30% under GWB.

Right.  and which is worse?  35% or 30%. Clearly nonDemoncrap prezzes are more better than demoncraps.

What difference does it make.  Obama's term has not ended yet.  We will see what the employment rate will be in 2016.

I know you're being sarcastic, but Romney really was talking about the REAL unemployment rate...

Mitt Romney’s claim that the unemployment rate is really 11 percent
Quote:
“If you just give up and say, ‘Look I can’t go back to work, I’m just going to stay home,’ why, you’re no longer part of the employment statistics. So it looks like unemployment is getting better, but the truth is, if the same share of people were participating in the workforce today as on the day the president got elected, our unemployment rate would be around 11 percent.”

— Mitt Romney, Oct. 5, 2012


Quote:
The announcement Friday that the unemployment rate had dropped below 8 percent deprived the Romney campaign of one its favorite talking points (“42 months of unemployment above 8 percent”). Never mind that this is more of a psychological barrier than anything else, since the rate has bounced around enough that it will take some time to see if this is a permanent shift.

But Romney was quick to point out a new figure — a suggestion that the real apples-to-apples unemployment rate with the start of Obama’s term would be 11 percent. We have previously explored the details of another unemployment rate — the U-6, which includes part-timers looking for full-time work — that conservatives have touted. But what is this new metric?
