It is very sad, but some people just give up looking. Do the areas that see a decrease in unemployment rates reflect that?

If you listen to the bullshit coming out of obamas trap, and his liberal cronies for that matter, the unemployment rate was on the decline. Lies, more lies out of the left.

I thought Corbett said unemployment would be a thing of the past ? You know... all the gas drilling ? I thing we have a right wing liar .... Could that be possible ?

I agree with you poster 8:04. Obama isn't capable of telling the truth. Sure they think the unemployment rate is down. Have they given any thought to why they think it is down. People that can't find work have probably drawn all their unemployment that is eligable to them which is 99 weeks. After that and they are no longer drawing to them it shows the rate is down. How many people do they think they are bullshitting. God help us all if the people of our great nation doesn't wake up before this next election. We can't take another 4 year with the current adminstration.

12:54:00 Corbett doesn't know how to tell the truth. That sucking noise you hear is Pennsylvania money going to Texas workers and being spent in Texas.

Obama is counting the people he has put on welfare as jobs because they aren't on the unemployment line any more!

KNEW Obama would be blamed here.
You racists need to shut your traps and go LOOK for a job instead of blabbing on blogs. Jeez!

To poster 1:28. Maybe you should practice what you preach. You had time to blab on this blog and obviously must be an Obama supporter. It isn't that we are racists as you put it we are just sick and tired of all his bullshit and lies. He isn't in office to help this country. He is in only for one thing and that is to destroy the United States. Maybe you should wake up.

1:28 just because people don't like obama that doesn't make them racist! What an idiot you are to play the race card!
