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.”

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.

Chicago machine hard at work. The dems are desperate and they are starting the lying machine up in full force. These low lifes aren't capable of winning fairly and they gloat over their despicable accomplishments. In other words, you are right, don't believe it.

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.

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).

"Unions added workers py paying them to show up for Obomba’s rallys"

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?"

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.

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.

“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.

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!”

All the top of the hour newscasts will breathlessly shout out the GREAT news that the unemployment number has dropped because of the wise direction of our great and humble leader.

I hope the announcers have taken their tranquilizers so they don't hyperventilate from all the excitement.

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.

Policy wonk Paul Ryan can tear these numbers apart when he debates Biden.

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.

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.

Trust God.
