David Parker is a very smart and successful businessman, a Romney guy, and an occasional contributor to the blog MittRomneyCentral.

In the last year, the civilian population rose by 1,739,000. Yet the labor force rose by a mere 238,000. Those not in the labor force rose by 1,501,000. Were it not for people dropping out of the labor force, the unemployment rate would be well over 11%.
At the Heritage Foundation last week, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan demonstrated why he doesn't need to be running for President to be framing the debate for 2012.
