I wonder which administration had "full employment." With Republicans trying to increase unemployment and Obama trying to reduce unemployment, it is not likely to change much.

Believe it or not, the full employment rate of unemployment is roughly 4.5%

That last 4.5% are considered people who have just chosen to not work.

And, interesting, under Governor Romney, Massachusetts’ unemployment rate fell to 4.7%

That means ....... Yes, you got it, under Romney, the state reached "full employment"
