    We've been trying to tell those that would listen that anything less than 200 K "full time" jobs monthly is causing us to lose ground due to new graduates entering work force. We are likely only averaging adding 60-70 K new jobs monthly with the majority of Obama jobs being part time.

    Unemployment rates rose in nearly all large U.S. cities in June as college graduates and many of those still in school began searching for jobs.

    The Labor Department said Tuesday that unemployment rates rose in 347 large metro areas in June compared with the previous month. They fell in 12 and were unchanged in 13. In May, rates fell in 109 cities and rose in 243.

    Proud of my daughter who graduated in May and networked her way into an entry level post at one of the premier social media marketing agencies in NYC and is now learning how to live on a pittance.

    As a joke I sent her flowers to be delivered on August 1st - her one month anniversary of the new job saying: "Wow, 30 days and still working! Congratulations, Mom & Dad"

    @Tasselhoff: yeah..no doubt. She asked me "can I live well on $35K in NYC?" I said "no, you can't. But, you can live - share an apartment in Brooklyn, forego shopping sprees, cook your own food, eliminate expensive extras like $15 martinis in Manhattan and work your fanny off so that, in a couple of years, you will be worth $60K in the marketplace (or more!)" Kids are amazing. I give her credit because she took the job in NYC to work with a well respected firm rather than a job in Orlando that paid slightly better (and she could live with very little overhead) but with not as much upside and connectivity to the movers/shakers in her industry. Okay, okay...enough about me and mine.

    Van, I think Pew's projections were accurate as to #s but off in reality as so many seniors cannot afford to retire in Obama's world.

    These threads would be a great deal more compelling and informative if they didn't begin and end with "it's Obama's fault." Stipulating that Obama's policies are having a dampening effect on employment (I don't know if that's true, but let's assume it is) there have to other factors. Can we address them, or does it have to be all Obama, all the time?

    He owns it, but I'm sure he will campaign next year on what he's going to do to fix it.

    Riiiiiiiggghhttt....

    We oughtn't measure our POTUS by results--that's too harsh.

    We should measure him on the less tangible things he's accomplished, like:

    ....forging national unity....

    ... positive feeling of patrotism....

    ....national pride....

    ....international respect....

    ....a great example of fiscal responsibility, honesty, transparency, spirit of cooperativeness, non-partisanship...

    Then again, maybe we should stick with results--as brutally as he sucks on those, he appears to fair better than on the intangibles. ;)

    Just more opportunity for the 50% who pay taxes to give a little more. You know the old saying Give till it hurts

    What has any of this got to do with the discussion at hand?

    Nevermind, the last few posts answered my question. Either you guys don't know the other factors in play, or you just don't care.

    Well let's see what other factors. Start with Obama care and the effect it is having on employers.
    Rising fuel prices with no (still) sound energy plan.
    Shrinking tax revenue for state and municipalities.
    Uncertainty of consumers.
    Continued out of whack trade deficit.
    Inflation
    Panic in the health care industry.
    EPA
    Continued flood of invaders from Mexico
    No vision from the president

    Yep, he owns it.

    You're right. I thought about changing that to read that it's 10k per day hitting 65. Eventually the retirement rate will stabilize to that number, but it's not there yet. But you've got to believe the number of people retiring is greater than the job creation. That's a negative job growth.

    I think in general that any POTUS gets too much credit and too much blame for the economy, except in Obama's case. He's a communist with the full backing of the controlled media. Pretty bad combo.

    Not really, because Obama is pulling the strings on all the agencies responsible for our over-regulation/s... and he owned the biggest anchor of all - Obama-scam.

    Dyno, typically when policies, attitudes, philosophies of this administration are examined, it (the explanation, excuse, reason) typically jumps to Bush, Cheney, Haliburton, Iraq. You want to go there?
