Obama Depression News–
A new Harvard study revealed that just 62% of Americans under 30 have jobs and half of those jobs are part-time.
The Examiner reported:

A comprehensive new Harvard University report on Americans under 30, the so-called Millennials, shows that the economy is having a crushing impact, with just 62 percent working, and of those, half are toiling at part-time jobs.

The report, released by Harvard’s Institute of Politics, paints a depressing economic portrait of young Americans, many of whom are stuck with huge college tuition bills and little chance of finding a high-paying job.

But over half, or 59 percent of those aged 18-29, have gone to college and The report reveals that time in college is a better sign of social status than income, mostly because jobs aren’t available.

    Well, they’ve been brainwashed by our schools about how great Socialism is so what else can we expect.

    Do you think that cutting taxes and regulations on business will stimulate the economy?

    “Obama captured 60 percent of the youth vote in 2012.”

    Romney kept threatening them with jobs. How did you expect them to vote?

    Obamaites don’t care–more important things to deal with: # of bullets in a magazine, GOPers who want to starve babies, etc.

    Yes, people hate having jobs.

    The youth are finding comfortable Basement dwelling to be a state of mind. The brainwashing is that it doesn’t matter who is president, they would still be there. That is so not true.

    Barry is the ultimate job destroyer – no one since FDR comes even close. The great Depression II
    is completely a product of Barry – MSM silent, except to blame Boosh.

    “New claims for U.S. unemployment benefits fell to 366,000 last week from an upwardly revised 371,000. Claims were expected to fall to 360,000 from an initially reported 368,000. ”

    This is what passes for news. A 1.35% difference in an unacceptably high number is touted as a good thing. What a load of crap.

    Many do. More than ever before.

    Our economy crashed in 2007-2008 for one reason: the real estate bubble burst taking trillions of wealth from the economy. We were in official recession from Dec 2007 to June 2009. Obama took office in Jan 2009. How did he cause the recession that started over 1 year before he took office? Competent economists predicted a horrific outcome once the overheated real estate market imploded.

    I come to this site to correct Hoft’s untruths (until he bans me in 3..2..1…). Why do you any of you come here? Mr. Hoft lies to you in every post.

    I think most are incapable of connecting the dots.

    There is precious little evidence to support your claim that significant numbers of Americans are willingly not in the job market.

    Econ 101 would argue that if jobs are going begging for lack of applicants that employers would raise wages or increase benefits to attract new workers to satisfy demand for their products and services. Has pay been going up the past several years?

    No, our economic problems are not caused by lazy 20 somethings. Our economic problems stem from a lack of demand for goods and services.

  • Warthog

    To see you try and explain away Obama’s horrible performance as president.

    Dance, monkey, dance!

    #10 jEFFERY – This is not the first recession/depression this country has faced but only FDR’s was longer. I am confident that with the leadership and innovative ideas coming out of Washington that Obama will beat FDR’s glorious record.

    When you’re through slurping up all that goodness, explain how President McCain would have fixed the huge hole left in the economy from the burst real estate bubble.

    “those who do not learn from history…”
    No sympathy for the eternally stupid,
    can’t fix stupid,
    and the eternal mystery: do the stupid know they’re stupid?

    #10, Jeffery, How would giving Obama a pass on causing the recession excuse the fact that after the four years of his prdsidency, we still don’t have a viable recovery? Why are 38% of those under 30 still unemployed four years after the end of the recession? Even more telling, why are
    half of those under 30 who do have jobs working part time? It appears to me that there are major holes in your logic. Did you ever consider that it might be because of the weak and confused rambling of Obama apologists like you that sentinent folks come here to see Mr. Hoft’s logical postings?

    “Our economic problems stem from a lack of demand for goods and services.”

    Why is there a lack of demand? It isn’t because of bad press. The media would have you believe we are in recovery.
    It wouldn’t be because both businesses and the public have fear and uncertainty about what is coming out of Washington next, would it? Increased costs and regulations to businesses, increases in taxes to all with threats of more, and nobody is really sure of how much Obamacare will really cost. Jobs are disappearing because most businesses are not only putting off expansion plans, but many are cutting staff and hours in response to uncertainty, a hostile anti-business climate, and the “tax the rich” sentiments being encouraged by Washington.

    Easy, cut government spending. Stop spending money we don’t have so that it undermines the value of the dollar. Allow the Keystone pipeline. Allow coal companies to mine and reduce the cost of energy. Do not subsidize “Green energy” boondoggles that do nothing but waste taxpayer dollars. Do not spend money on electric cars that don’t work. Do not spend money on items of value and then destroy them (cash for clunkers 100k/per car bought). Do not increase regulation on businesses thus killing hiring. Do not force banks to make loans to people who cannot repay them (CRA). Do not bail out your friends and stick the taxpayer with the bill (GM).

    And that’s just off the top of my head.

    Oh, here’s an easy one: Submit a budget to congress. He cannot even do that one, simple thing that is necessary for businesses to make even vague projections on the economy.

    Face it, your guy is an idiot of global proportions who cannot deliver on any his promises. He is a prevaricator who deflects blame whenever his moronic schemes fail.

    And you help him out, monkey.
