    •  Blame Republican obstruction for the (18+ / 0-)

      roller coaster ride.  Each time some momentum toward improved employment numbers happens, the Republicans, as policy, work to throttle that momentum.

      Job number one for the Republicans is to make sure President Obama, and America, fails.  Let's run them all out of office in 2014.

      Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.

        If their priority is to make Obama fail, they've shown great incompetence.  They are the "gang that can't shoot straight" in so many ways.

        Apres Bush, le deluge.

        •  It would be interesting to correlate the highs (0+ / 0-)

          and lows in the jobs graph with Republican obstruction events like the deficit debate in 2011, or the budget debate, or the sequester debate, or other Republican hostage-taking events.

          The real question is "who is causing the uncertainty in our economy?  And the answer is, of course, the Republicans.  Remember this; Republican pundits and economists always say the cause of bad events in the economy is "uncertainty" and at the very same time, Republicans in congress are constantly responsible for "uncertainty".  So whose fault is that?  The blame falls squarely on the Republicans.  End of story.
