With discouraged workers at 802,000 and Part Time at 582,000, it's clear that Obama is benefited by holiday hiring beginning and by discouraged workers again.

Just in time for the election.

These numbers are for all us market watchers and political wonks. Most people couldn’t tell you what the unemployment rate is or even who the vice president is [lucky bastards]. What they can tell you is if THEY have a job. Weather their family members or neighbors have jobs. Weather their home is worth more than it was four years ago. Weather they have more money in their pockets at the end of the month. How they relate those things to voting on Nov. 6... we’ll see. In the meantime, they can spin “the numbers” all they want... left and right. People know what they know.

Romney can counter with wanting to get people real, full-time, good paying jobs rather than have people work 2 part time jobs to make ends meet. He can talk about how companies are hiring part timers because they can’t afford obamacare for full time workers.

They added over 800,000 more jobs for August and September?

My home's BS detectors all blew.

REUTERS: A survey of households from which the jobless rate is derived showed 873,000 job gains last month, the most since June 1983.

Listened to Charles Payne on the Fox Business Channel and he saying the numbers just don’t add up. They don’t add up to me, either. Adding only 114,000 and the rate goes DOWN to 7.8%. Makes no sense! Rush said it would happen!

I think the BLS has one too many letters in its abbreviation.

Expect a few year-to-date, upward adjustments in the unemployment rate during December.

Construction is still lagging. I would know my husbands in the biz. I would be one happy lady if I knew he could find work 3 weeks out of the month. He took the plunge this week and incorporated so he could work as a contracter out of one of the big box stores. Its bad out there. The man has four employers (including himself now) and he still can’t get enough work.And its just not him the flooring companys he’s worked for in the past are barely keeping the carpet installer in a job. Total BS.

I had predicted this for last year in multiple posts. I said they would reduce the number in the job force to get the desired unemployment number under 8.0% . Several other sources had predicted increases of the rate to 8.2%

Do we think that an outfit who setup Operation Fast and Furious to justify domestic gun control and resulted in the DEATHS of hundred of Mexicans and our own border patrol agents would have ANY problem fudging a few numbers. I would have been SHOCKED if the number had been 8.0% or higher.

If Christmas hiring got unemployment down to 7.8 THIS year why didn’t that happen last year? Or the year before that?

Soviet economic reports are more truthful.

Thesse are doctored surveys, jimmied models, and outright fabrication.

114K new payroll jobs.
800K+ new household jobs.

The delta between payroll and household is supposed to be explained by self-employment and several other edge-case factors.

If you don’t think those add up, you are absolutely correct.

This will be thrown out in the next debate. This needs to be properly framed. It can be done in one sentence:

The 7.8% is the figure used to calculate those on unemployment compensation, not those out of work.

Question is, what is the percentage out of work, including those no longer eligible for or receiving unemployment compensation?

This statement and question will throw fubo to the wolves, and render him speechless....
