Jobless rate seen rising, offering Obama no relief
reuters ^

Posted on 11/02/2012 4:30:26 AM PDT by Perdogg

The U.S. unemployment rate probably rose in October as employers stepped up hiring only slightly, underscoring President Barack Obama's vulnerability in next week's presidential election.

Employers likely added 125,000 jobs to their payrolls last month, according to a Reuters survey of economists. That would be up from 114,000 in September, but would fall short of what is needed to quickly cut the jobless rate.

“Offering Obama No Relief”...or the the jobless. Reuters never fails, even in their headlines, to get to what THEY think is important.

Obama administration spokesman, “it’s important not to place too much emphasis on one months data taken in isolation”. (Repeated each month for the last eighteen months consecutively.)

Think this is a setup. No way the Chicago crew will allow a report to be released that isn’t fudged to show progress at this late juncture.

They will readjust prior periods to show gains.

Not sure it will matter though.

The numbers will be rigged, the rate will come down. The lamestream media will parrot and crow about it for the next 4 days....just sayin.

According to Steve Liesman, ObamaBot at CNBC, this morning’s data will include some of the “small increase in planned job layoffs” by companies in the next few months. On Fox Business this week, they said that the planned layoff number rose 41%. Would anyone but Liesman think that’s a “small number”?

The most ridiculed word for a coupla years now has been “unexpected”.

That means conservatives should go along and “expect” worse jobs numbers because we suddenly stopped believing in “unexpected”?

I trust those people to set everyone up with expectations of gloom and then suddenly come in with smiley faces, beaming the good news that unemployment has improved bigtime.

The headline will be “Jobs Numbers UNEXPECTEDLY Improve Obama’s Advancing Economy!”

I do not trust the media. Better skeptical than surprised.

IOW, I’ll believe it when I see it.

They did this with the September numbers too.. “it’s real bad, the rate should tick up”.. then, even though the numbers were real bad, the rate ticked down and the media ignored the fact the numbers were cooked. If there is anyone that trusts the numbers coming from the office of Obama supporters run by political appointees, please stand on your head.

Come on. That report won’t be released until 10:00pm tonight so it becomes part of the weekend dump.

If it is released earlier, be prepared for something big to trump it.

The media is crooked. The Chicagobama gang is sinister.

not sure if the numbers will be fabulous-

But it does not matter to the MSM- just heard on ABC-
THAT AN INCREASE IN UNEMPLOYMENT is a SIGN of an improving
ECONOMY!!?? total BS- flat out lie-

Glad I did not have a shoe handy- or my flat screen would
have been toast-

Another reason for me to STOP listening to the MSM

That TURNED MY STOMACH to read that headline.

“People are without jobs - how will this affect Obama?”

You know, the 80’s were called the “me decade”.
These people are sicker yet. They’ve turned from self-worship to antichrist worship.

Looks like Bloomberg released the old ADP statistics. They had 171,000 jobs created. I thought ADP revised it down to 121,000.
