House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the unemployment rate remaining flat at 7.8 percent shows a good pace and that the country is going in the right direction.
Good morning. Its a good morning indeed, I think, Pelosi said, as she began her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill on Friday. 155,000 jobs added in December.
Good pace, going in the right direction, she said. 1.8 million private sector jobs gained in 2012. December was the 34th consecutive month of private-sector job creation.
The government unemployment report released on Friday revealed that the number of unemployed Americans remained unchanged from November, at 7.8 percent, and adding 155,000 jobs, just above the 150,000 jobs needed each month to keep up with population growth.

If it was true. 7.8% is a big lie.
5% was considered really bad under Bush. I'm too tired for doublethink today.

Silliness from the the senile one reminds me of the joke about the old witch who jumped off a 50-story building.
As she passed the 43rd floor someone yelled out what were you thinking?
As she passed the 25th floor she replied, "So far so good!"

What an idiot. Bush’s worst day for unemployment was the same date as Obama’s best day...Inauguration Day 2009.

Won’t be long before those who are long term unemployed will run out of benefits and be taken off the rolls that determine the unemployment rate. Therefore the numbers will drop. Happy days are here again.

It was not the 34th month with employment gained... in august of 2011 there were no jobs gained.
The US economy created no jobs and the unemployment rate held steadily higher at 9.1 percent in August, fueling concerns that the US is heading for another recession.
Getty Images It was the first time since World War II that the economy had precisely net zero jobs created for a month.
