    Meanwhile, the broader economy at large is creating jobs at a healthy pace. We've finally regained all of the jobs lost in the Greenspan recession:

    So much for Obamacare "killing jobs" huh? Just more anti-Obama delusion and BS.

    Wake up call for Deane;

    I know many of the 60+ who have left the workforce, and it's really a good thing.

    They refused to upgrade their skills, they don't know how to text, to them "surfing" is something you do with a wave, "downloading" is removing something from their truck.

    There is no room for these people in the workforce. So they file for disability to survive until they reach Social Security age.

    Is it Obama's fault alone, of course not old Ronnie encouraged continuing education, but with no wage support, how was that going to work? Well it didn't and we headed to the point of no return for these lower educated workers.

    Who do they blame? Mexicans, just look at the way they vote. The closer you are to the border you see more of this attitude. There are many reasons for why they drop out of the workforce, but as time passes there are fewer solutions. But none of these solutions are forwarded by Fox News other than get rid of the black guy.

    You can polish a turd all you want to, but when you're finished, it's still a turd.

    Reality check Deane-those are the people I am referring to. What the country owes them a $30 an hour job?

    It seems you seem to believe that would happen if you sent all of the illegals back to their country of origin this will happen. It won't they do not have the proper job skills, they are dinosaurs who have not adapted to change. The reality the true number is not 7 million, but more like 10 million, and frankly I don't feel sorry for them at all.

    But the turd you speak of was delivered by the like's of the Koch Brothers and the Walton's, not Obama.

    Now, if you look at what has happened in the job market, it's not very encouraging.

    Perhaps you can line out the SPECIFIC reasons why this is Obama's fault?
