That observation would be peculiar if the federal unemployment rate was the only figure people were looking at. Unlike Clinton, Bush has presided over a net loss of jobs. That is, less people are working this election than there were last election. In fact, in the worst months Clinton had in terms of job creation, there was still a net improvement.<br><br>The unemployment rate does not reflect that since it only counts those who lost their jobs in the last 18 months. Many of the down-ticks in the unemployment rate recently have been attributed to people either giving up looking or loosing their benefits.<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
