Why Democrats need a stellar jobs report Friday
Yahoo/CNBC ^ | Mar 31, 2014 | Ben White

Posted on 03/31/2014 7:10:45 PM PDT by kingattax

Every jobs report has political significance given the extent to which Republicans and Democrats attempt to spin the numbers to their best advantage. But this Friday's March employment report is especially critical following the weak winter numbers and the impending midterm election season.

Democrats are fervently hoping that the lackluster reports over the last three months were mostly the result of a brutal winter that delayed construction projects and slowed other industries that might otherwise have hired more workers.

Most analysts right now agree that is probably the case. The consensus forecast for Friday's jobs number is 200,000 with the unemployment rate ticking down to 6.6 percent from 6.7 percent.

No one in the nation believes the figures these liars ladle out each month. They are as phony as the ObamaCare guesstimates they are publicizing today. When the whole Big Government bubble collapses, no one will be surprised.

I’ve got some bad news for them. Construction projects aren’t going to bail them out.

We’ve had a LONG HARD winter here in the Midwest. There are still some construction sites sitting idle. We had a frost line reaching 5 FEET for crying out loud.

I don’t think any economic reports matter. Imagine FDR and LBJ discussing current events. LBJ TO FDR, LBJ: “How did this negro outdo what we tried to do beyond anything we could of hoped for?” (Thats not racist on my part LBJ said he was gonna make the negros vote Democrat for generations).

Obama created a majority dependent class of people beyond what FDR and LBJ ever dreamed of. It doesn’t matter how bad things get, Democrats and Democrat Republicans will hold power for the immediate future.

People believe what they want to hear and yes their are millions of democrats that want to believe that Obama’s a savior sent from heaven. They'll blame every thing that ever goes wrong on republicans.

The mere existence of media like MSNBC proves that everyday.

-By Ben White. White is POLITICO's chief economic correspondent and a CNBC contributor.

Last line of this puffff piece So there is at least an outside chance that Democrats could lose by winning.

At least Ben explains that Shucks Shummer is going to lie once again and blame Republicans.

Yes, sadly, there are millions who, if they notice at all, take government BS at face value.

IIRC this is a Household Survey month, not an ADP month, which means the numbers are not verified by any source outside of the BLS. They could very well be quite good [and 100% bogus.]

re: Why Democrats need a stellar jobs report Friday

It does not matter why the need a good jobs report, since all they have to do is write what ever they think the folks in flyover country will believe.

My guess is under 6.5% unemployed.

A stellar jobs report has been ordered up and will be duly delivered on Friday. The BLS will say 250,000+ new jobs and a reduction in UE to 6.4%

Remember, it doesn’t have to be truthful... only helpful.

They need a stellar report. They will get a stellar report.

Remember the scandal when it turned out the Census Dept. cooked the numbers for Oct 2012 to get the unemployment rate under 8% in time for the election?

Oh, that's right! There was no scandal.

It did happen.

It was reported but...no scandal...no nothing...

They will make up a stellar report and then revise it down slightly next week. But none of it will be truthful. Nothing these people say is truth. They have to work really hard to maintain the facade. Must be exhausting to make up lie after lie and expect belief. I’m wondering why more folks haven’t figured it out.
