Tomorrow Morning's Jobs Numbers Could Be a Last Minute October Surprise!
1 Nov 12 | Xzins

Posted on 11/01/2012 12:18:39 PM PDT by xzins

When Gallup released it's mid-month jobs survey numbers, they had dropped to 7.3%. They generally are a few points under the monthly report due out tomorrow, so that would mean a 7.5% UE3.

However, we know Obama and his minions will do all in their power to tie into their "don't change now that things are looking up" campaign theme the last few weeks.

It is very possible that the media is all keyed to go into feeding frenzy for the entire weekend with the "progress is being made; don't change now" message.

Moreover, it's very likely that Obama will doctor the numbers even more, and we could have an even lower number. Why will they do it? Because they are sinister.

Be prepared to wage email, internet war this weekend in every paper, on every bulletin board, in every conversation.

Be prepared to talk about the PART-TIME economy, and economy that doesn't get anyone closer to their dreams or to actual financial stability.

Don't put anything past these crooks.

It’ll be like the other “good news” reports, cooked.

Unemployed people will be pushed off the rolls as “not looking” and what numbers are released will be revised later with worse figures (as has already happened repeatedly).

And Hurricane Sandy could be their excuse to say they “estimated” the numbers, or need to adjust them later, or whatever.

IOW, doctored numbers.

I expect the commie ‘RATS in the Obama regime to make the number “look presidential” for Barry tomorrow. For the first time, the numbers WON’T be “unexpected”. Tuesday is election day. The ‘RATS have to create another “game changer” for him.

Did the federal government hire a million workers in October? Nothing suspicious about that.

Well, let’s look at what has happened previously.

For the past several months, the BLS and the rest of the administration have been churning out these bogus jobs and U3 numbers.

And they haven’t really helped Obama, who is worse off now than when the U3 dropped below 8.0%.

So I doubt it. I mean, I know that they’re going to cook the number but good tomorrow to try to look good for Obama, but I doubt it will help him much, especially with only four days left.

Gallup’s numbers are not seasonally adjusted, to account for part-time hires for the upcoming holiday season. Labor Dept numbers are (or supposed to be).

In fact, they just continued the fine job they were doing under Bush and Elaine Chao, who practically invented the modern art of fudging employment statistics for political purposes. The methodology changes that lead to this basically all occurred during that administration.

Agree, unless job reports shows a big increase like 250K in new jobs and rates goes to down to 7%, this job report has no affect.. I have feeling it going to be 120K jobs created and rate goes to 8%.. People maybe trying to get into job pool so rate will probably increase.

Of course they’ll be cooked numbers. That’s why the Labor Dept. arranged to publicize them. Gotta ignore them for the propaganda they are and press hard ahead.

I’m not worried as I think most people concluded any economic numbers coming out of this administration are garbage a long time ago.

We should have a pool for how low the faked numbers will be. Put me down for 7.2%.

There is quite a bit of hiring going on where I work.

That is because RICH people have put a lot of THEIR money into the enterprise and are creating BiteMe's favorite three-letter word.....JOBS!

As Sean Hannity frequently says....."I was never offered a job by a poor man".

I expect a combination of discouraged workers and “part-time” and “redefinition of what a job is” to bring the number down.

I’d love to be wrong.

The only question is attacking a false number just as soon as it hits the media.

My biggest concern during this election is fraud - at several levels.

I agree. I am not a fan of electronic voting.

I’d rather use paper ballots and have the count take 3 or 4 days. I couldn’t care less if the media can forcast winners on election eve.

Don’t be naive...at least 47% of the nation will believe the numbers and 90% of the media. To suggest “no one will believe it” is being naive. Plenty will believe it, hook, line and sinker.

I predict ADP wil say 144,000 jobs and a rate of 7.4% based on BLS data.

"In fact, they just continued the fine job they were doing under Bush and Elaine Chao, who practically invented the modern art of fudging employment statistics for political purposes. The methodology changes that lead to this basically all occurred during that administration. "

Buzz! Sorry. You are probably too young to remember the REAL originator of bogus employment numbers. Begin snippet:

"Cooked books?" They hadn't even thawed them yet. Under Reagan and Bush, unemployment was measured by sending out about 60,000 "Household surveys" asking about employment. The "Chronically unemployed" were dropped from counting, defined THEN as three or four years of being out of a job. The Clinton regime dropped 9,000 surveys, mostly in inner cities where unemployment is much higher, then later trimmed the overall number to 50,000 - again avoiding inner cities. They then redefined the "Chronically unemployed" horizon down to ONE YEAR. BINGO! Instant record breaking unemployment and the lowest recorded unemployment for African-Americans in history. Wow, are we doing well or what!

What has to be remembered is that the reading of the economic speedometer (CPI, PPI, unemployment, etc) is done by the Clinton administration Department of Labor. Surely, no one is suggesting that Labor Secretary Alexis Hermann lied to make the administration look good. (Ahem! Cough, cough!)

end snippet

As Mitt said at the Al Smith Dinner right to Barry’s face:

“And don’t be surprised if the president mentions this evening the monthly jobs report where there was a slight improvement in the numbers. He knows how to seize the moment, this president. And already has a compelling new campaign slogan, “You’re better off now than you were four weeks ago.”

The United States Post Office has been on a hiring spree for more than a month and a half now. Seasonal part/full time positions for the holidays.

They even went as far as sending out huge hiring postcards to EVERY household.

You win. It’s 7.9%. I thought they’d cook the numbers more to help hussein’s last minute campaign.
