Guess what the bs jobs number will be tomorrow.
BS | 11/2/12 | Rosemont

Posted on 11/01/2012 9:34:04 PM PDT by Rosemont

Will they drop it to 7.5%? Will the unemployment figure miraculously drop again? To 7.0%? How many jobs will be "added" that will be adjusted after the election?

IF they drop lower I think the dims will have over played their hand like they always to.

If they go lower the chorus of those screaming BULL$HIT will be so loud people will have to take notice.

I’m predicting 7.2 and that the kneepad press will trumpet it as their main story all day.

It's hard to tell, Rosemont.

They may be manipulated and drop down to 7.0% or lower because Obama cooked the books.

Or they may drop because more jobless people lost their unemployment benefits and are no longer counted

OR (and this one will be part of my headline on Twitter) the business world sees the polling data that Obama just may lose the election and with that anticipation they slowly began to hire some workers. There IS one thing I do know. Any drop in the unemployment number would have NOTHING to do with any economic policies of Barack Hussein Obama because he has no economic policy.

They will drop it to 7.6%. Any lower than that and people will just laugh. Last month they found 400,000 people to drop out of the workforce. And there was a net 800,000 jobs. There are not enough more people who they can find to drop out.

I don’t think it will move any voters to Obama. And Hurricane Sandy will not have any lasting impact - any boost he would have gotten is offset by the current upset by residents in the Northeast, as Obama flies off to the West to campaign. Problem with looking presidential is that you have to keep it up for a week or so to make it believable.

6.8 with an adjustment to 8.1 in December. If we are lucky, maybe a state will accidentally withhold their information and we will find out on Wednesday.

Most predictable Comments from pundits:

Rachel Maddow: “smartest president ever”
Soledunce o’ Brien: “things have really turned the corner.”
Mika brqshdgdgdzenski: “ how can anyone question this recovery.”
Chris Matthews: “I still love him”

It’s obvious the jobs report is bad and the unemployment rate would go up under any “respectable” administration. If last months miraculous 7.8% report proved anything - as well as the debates - it’s that Obama’s minions will manipulate anything to stay in power. They have absolutely no respect for the truth or the American people.

You really think that the Chicago crew will allow a report to be released at this time that shows the rate increasing. They will find a way to manipulate it. Not sure it will matter though.

+8%. For employment to get down to 6% we have to add 350,000 jobs a month for the next four years. We will be lucky to add half that for September.

Guess what the bs jobs number will be tomorrow.

Back in my "going to school" days in another lifetime they used to say 4% unemployment was considered "full employment" in discerning circles.

Tomorrow, we should be at 3%.

They’re already double counting jobs.

There’s a “job.”

Then there’s a “green job”.

Same job doubled.

AT the most 7.9% . Obama's federal government agency the BLS will fake it to keep it below 8%. But they might fake it even more to lower it even more. No way will the fake number be 8% or above. They took that away from Romney , as he kept saying it was over 8%. Real unemployment 50% as that is what it is for college grads (50% of college grads can't find a job). Add in all those that gave up looking, those on disability and food stamps etc. no way real unemployment below 20% and they fake it to be below 8%. This government is all about lies as bengazi gate shows.

My sympathy. Make your voice heard on Nov. 6th, unless you’ve voted against Dear Leader already. Hope you get a new gig ASAP.

180,000 new “jobs,” i.e., low-wage, part-time temps; the UE will magically drop to 7.5%.

Objectivity and integrity were long tossed overboard. It`s all-in to protect the boss now.

For starters, you can be that the newly unemployed (caused by Sandy) will not be counted. That said, ADT and the government are forced now to report a reduction in jobs claimed from last time. A pretty significant spike (dip).

They rightfully should be reporting 7.9 by their counting method, but they probably won’t. Don’t even count on them mentioning anything about newly Sandy related unemployment.

I was concerned with all the games being played with the reporting of the economic numbers by both the MSM and the administration. However the reality of the matter is if you don't have a job or you are working and are being told your job may be in jeopardy you have first hand knowledge of what the real state of the economy is.

Drop the unemployment rate to 0 it won't change the reality these people know. At the same time that they drop the rate the administration should advise those that are struggling to provide for their families that they are not hungry.

Not in Texas. Most stations are still over $3.50 and have been there since earlier in the year.
