Drudge has unemployment at 7.8% He also has +118,000 jobs created for September.
Romney will destroy this. It’s just more fodder that fits right into the mold RR are making for 0dumbo.
“Liar. And here’s proof.”
Hugh and series ....to be revised later.
So is every business commentator on the planet. Jack Welch is already calling BS on the numbers saying they are a direct result of Obama's poor debate.
The analysis is simple. Even putting the shadow stats aside.
If we had the same workforce today as we did on Jan 1, 2012 the unemployment rate would be 8.4%. All they need to do is to keep shrinking the work-force to bring the unemployment pct down. Total scam.
Under-employment is the real thing to watch.
No Surprise here. Obama’s magic Numbers machine. The amazing thing is that even FOX shows a chart with these Lies boldly displayed.
It’s a joke...Mostly part time jobs to start with...and likely using OLD base numbers. Creative math...
They just went back to previous months and changed them all.
Really - they did that.
I just love it that all the DEM media experts....have gone silent....until they get their "talking points" from their master.
They must take us all for idiots. Nobody will believe these numbers. Not even obamabots. They’ll be happy to see them, but they will know they’re a fabric of lies.
THE ROMNEY RALLY HAS BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unions added workers py paying them to show up for Obomba’s rallys. Work 4 hours at $11 bucks an hour and then get a free Obamma phone.
:: They just went back to previous months and changed them all. ::
Yep. Just extracted the “revised upward” numbers and called them “new jobs”.
Easy, peasy...lemon squeezy.
Government employment growth accounts for about half of it, if I read this correctly. So mack-daddy wants a nice number going into the elections and orders agencies to hire.
What a crock.
Now the liberals will start crowing that Porkulus worked. The stated goal of Porkulus was to get unemployment below 8%,. That talking point will be out there.
Hallelujah....Barack, he done saved us!
I did notice a sudden flurry of fly-by-night paving jobs all over town in the last 30 days or so.
The TRUE purpose of the Stimulus I suppose.
- I’m repeating the question I posted elsewhere -
What happens when we know THEY are lying, and THEY know we know they are lying?
This nightmare is worse than a banana Republic, this is outright CCCP.
Romney needs to hammer workforce participation rates and underemployment, otherwise O’Liar will just trumpet 7.8% all day long (as if that is some huge accomplishment).
I believe this was a NEW plant...doing "Green" stuff. I'm betting the entire thing was government funded. Will get back...It's BIG news here in upstate NY.
It would be GREAT if Romney would say "Do those new hires include the Union-paid homeless that show up at your Rallys, too, or just all the part-time workers who can't find FULL-TIME JOBS to make it look like everything is rosey?"
Glaring proof just how desperate the regime is, it’s not going to hold up and juicing the numbers will blowup in their faces.
From the Lucianne.com Headline:
“The country generally needs at least 150,000 new jobs each
month to keep up with population growth”
GOING FOR THE MORON VOTE!!!
A video was to blame for the deaths in Benghazi.
SO was yelling, “You Lie” at the TV, myself!!!
No suprise here. Rush predicted this months ago.
Yep. Rush has predicted this forever. And he has repeatedly warned us. Every once in a while replaying his clip.
He will be on fire today. This is Hugo Chavez territory (one month before election, 800k part time home-based jobs are found???).
The media has no clue how to report it with only 114k jobs created.
I laughed out loud when I saw this. Pathetic lies.
That explains why Obama was so sanguine during the debate. He knew this was forthcoming..likely Axelrod “helped” with the computations.
This is a corrupt ruling elite that has turned America into no better than a third-world backwater. And American voters have no clue how fixed this system is.
And amazingly.. the U6 remained at 14.7% Go figure.
This is fake, criminal
An October surprise
This is what we are up against. I’m in a red state but I’ll volunteer on the phones to swing states.
Romney needs to come out and tear these numbers apart.
the government is now including lemonade stands, paperboys, kids shoveling driveways, etc...
“Just got a news report....Honeoye Falls NY....GM is closing their plant....300 employees....”
I received an email from Costco at 6:30 am this morning announcing a special offer on GM vehicles - 2012 and 2013 models, GM preferred pricing, all rebates/incentives, plus $500 Costco Cash card. Government Motors must be in a sales slump.
Rush was correct. The regime found a way to get to drop it to 7.8 right before the election. They did 7.8 because 7.9 would look too suspicious. That’s a .4 swing in a month. That’s the biggest swing in the last 40 months.
I smell a rat—a big Kenyan rat out of Chicago.
These numbers will be revised up to 8.2 percent next month. But then it will be too late. Mission accomplished.
Of course it will be revised UPWARD - but only the week after the election. Only a fool just off the turnip truck could not have guessed that the employment rate would be below 8% before the election.
As the saying goes, “Figures don’t lie but liars figure!”
“Fun With Numbers”, the Deluxe Election Edition.
I hope the announcers have taken their tranquilizers so they don't hyperventilate from all the excitement.
The LIV (low information voter) will not take the time nor will he have access to the revealing deep-dive on any of these numbers (lsm not willing to tell the truth).
God save the Republic!
A crock of Chicago Crap is what it is. Just watch him start in on it now today with narrative. “Its getting better! Slow, long way to go, were are getting there, be patient, I inherited a big mess. They planned this from several years back. If many people buy this, (many) Americans are more stupid nowadays than I thought they were.
It would be be bad to get this number the Friday before the election; no time to dig in and find the facts then.
Plenty of time to dive in and get the real story now.
I work for a multi-national company, and they are looking for every cut they can find to brace for Taxmageddon.
Ignore the polls. Ignore unemployment rate numbers, whether they are over 8% or under 8%. People in the real world know whether the economies in their areas are good or bad, improving or deteriorating.
Pick your favorite candidates, support them and vote for them. That is what you should do and if you do that, you have done your part.
God will have a hand in this election. His will shall be revealed soon enough. When you do your part and God reveals His will, all will turn out just exactly as it should.
