"His agenda" is working. He wants to change America to a Socialist, Communist European style country. He wants to turn over our country's laws to the U.N. He wants to turn us into a welfare society. I had a 50K a year retirement income, which worked well under both Clinton and Bush. He took it away from me and said "live on government income." To me that's SS and a small disability. I don't qualify for food stamps, housing or healthcare either. That's no way near 50K a year. He's out to destroy America as we know it.

James Pethokoukis has the latest version of the chart originally created by Geoff at Uncommon Misperceptions, to which he's added a new wrinkle in its latest update: the green data point showing what the U.S. unemployment rate would be, if only the labor force participation rate had not fallen so much from where it was in January 2009 when Barack Obama was sworn into the presidency.
