re: #178 Lee Coller

You are aware that employment is generally a trailing indicator of a recovery?

Gee, Lee - That’s not what I’ve heard from the experts in the press over the past 8 years. Why is unemployment (in actual, almost *historic* numbers this time around) suddenly not matter in our economic forecasting, when it was a constant source of sorrow during the Bush years?

Could it really be true that unemployment numbers only matter when there’s a (R) in the White House?
