    In 2008 the unemployment rate was at 10% as our country was entering the greatest recession since the great depression. You cannot possibly so completed delusional to not know that...or maybe you can.
    TODAY!! Unemployment is at 18%... Don't be fooled by Nevada Senator Harry Reid...Chuckled typing that..

    The figures reported are not correct... They don't count the people who gave up looking for employment...Nobamanomics 101.

    I'm surprised it's only at 18% honestly.

    He's referring to a number that is also supposed to represent people who have removed themselves from the job seeking process. It is considered by many to be a more accurate number than our current unemployment data gathering. However, he is only applying the logic currently and ignoring the fact that the 10% number from 2008 is also not including those figures. Those individuals have never been counted from what I can recall, at least not in the last 40 years or so. But it does illustrate a dishonest approach to the discussion. If you are going to include those individuals in 2014 then you need to include them for 2008 as well. And I would add even including those individuals or the underemployed individuals as well, 18% sounds a little high to me.

    This administration like all others uses the officially accepted unemployment numbers. That being said using your math we went from 22% to 25% unemployment in 2008 down to 18% today. Better economy. We'll just go with your completely fabricated number for this example. If you refuse to see reality, how do you expect to vote in your own best interest. Fox is not your friend.

    Today's economy is in shambles. You think it's better because Mitch McConnell tells you so.

    Man I get chuckles at the kool aid drinkers.

    If the figures are lower today it's because companies cut two full time positions and replaced it with three full time positions. I know several companies who have done this or something similar.

    Yes, they believe what the liberal media tells them to believe.
