    They now brag about the fact that it's getting better.
    The economy that is. Who is they?

    Stockbrokers, the liberal news and Obama.

    But lets be real, that's more than 500,000 jobs lost in one month, that will not be replaced.

    Unemployment even by "their" numbers is now ~ 9%.
    But it's really higher when you count the unemployed now
    working part time, God Bless them and of course the illegals, etc.

    Let us wait and see job increases, before we brag.

    Hello! these are not good numbers and there is no end in sight.

    Brother - it's not gonna get better with Obama in charge.
    Higher taxes, less consumer spending and bad policies will result
    in unending job losses.

    It's called change!

    No president has caused job losses at these historically high levels.

    It's really worse than the numbers. Obama did create some government jobs, but
    those aren't real jobs.

    There is a domino effect to the real job losses. It gets worse, not better.

    Where is the outrage, I don't know?

    But nobody really believes it's getting better.

    Tell that to the unemployed folk that Obama laid off.


    Already if we are honest we see "The Change!"

    Actually, the job losses were less than expected. If you Chicken Littles are correct, we'll go Right. You haven't been correct very often lately.

    The stock market has been going back up.

    Many people are getting to be a little bit optimistic.

    Isn't that horrible, to a Rightie?

    It may not last, and then maybe you can be happy again. Until then, most of us hope it continues to gradually show signs of improvement.

    Unfortunately it seems that although there are some signs that order books are starting to improve slightly unemployment will get worse before it gets better...... Cold comfort but its the same in the UK too!

    All the bailouts and the stimulus spending has produced no real results.
    Car sales tanked in April, after all those bailouts.

    Yes the stock market has gone upward recently, but it really
    hasn't. We were at the 8000's on the Dow over 12 years ago.
    Back when Clinton was president. So lets' not get giddy.

    Obama will make the future bleaker for the children.
    Why?

    Now the Obama Admin is working on more government spending of this
    type that doesn't work.

    Yes children may start crying for their mother's milk in the US eventually, but there
    bellies will go hungry at night.

    It's called CHANGE!

    Don't listen to NBC, ABC and MSNBC because they purposely lie!

    In next few months all this undeserved optimism will
    turn to dispair. The stimulus is not working at all!

    If you live in the real world as a real person
    you will know this already. If you are sitting
    on the couch collecting unemployment checks you may not
    notice.

    But in over 20 years in my business, business
    has never been this bad. Nothing like it!
    I see pain coming in my business and my business employs
    millions.

    Gov't created this problem.
    The Obama policies are causing real pain and lost jobs.
    There is no economy in the US, it's a joke.

    The joke is called change!

    So under republicans things were 'bad', and now under Obama things are 'worse', but we should "get over it" because it's ok when Obama runs the country into the ground?

    ooooo less than expected. Not hard when the liberals were claiming it was going to be a nation ending depression. When you set the expectations so low, it's pretty easy to beat the expectations. Going back up? You realized it's not even back to where it was in late February? Not to mention the fallout from Chrysler's bankruptcy hasn't hit. Plus, it's rumored that GM will end up in bankruptcy too.

    You think we're on the rebound because some stocks have gone up in price a little bit? Don't be so foolish. We might be on the rebound, and we might not. Stocks going up a little is not an indicator.

    More-than-likely, the folks who're cleanin'-up after BUSHCO.​

    To be fair, this was probably back in your Elementary School playground-days, asur.

    Well it's interesting you post something that shows how much better things were under Bush.

    Note how employment "shot up" to 5.4%? First, that happened because Bush increased unemployment benefits, and shockingly people stayed on unemployment longer. ... Duh....

    Then I love the 5.4%. Right now we're over 9% unemployment, and thanks to Obama, it's projected to reach 12%.

    OH YES! Shaman you are soooo right. 9% unemployment is WAY better than Bush's 5%. We need more Obama... let's see if we can hit 12%!!!

    Andy, I'm going to go out on this limb: you are most likely a republican {dyed in the wool GOP} BUT...you have active brain cells that could/should look at the historical time line from G.W.B. first days in office until the day that he left and slowly look at the slide that the economy was taking...and then go back and look at that same time line as just 'JOHN Q. PUBLIC' {no party affiliation what-s0-ever} does the time line and indicators change just because you are just 'JOHN Q. PUBLIC'...nope...the roller-coaster ride ended up in the same place...DERAILED and in the DITCH!

    But continue to beat that redundant 'DRUM' of "DON'T BLAME G.W.B. and Company" all that you want...it won't change the way that history will write the REASONS WHY! GET OVER IT!!!

    Can't stand republicans. When Bush came into office, the economy was in a recession. 9/11 didn't help. Between tax cuts, and specific reforms, the economy was allowed to recover. In 2007 the housing bauble, caused by prior administration policies to promote minority home ownership, exploded.

    Obama has taken what should have been a short market correction, and has dragged it out with bad policy that will cost us trillions of dollars, plus inflation, plus higher taxes and more government interference in the future.

    Obama has not done one positive thing except giving the green light to whack a couple of Somalia Pirate thugs.
