Posted on 10/29/2012 9:46:41 AM PDT by chessplayer
The last big economic indicator left to see before the election is the October jobs report, which is due on Friday. Or is it? The Department of Labor suggested this morning that the jobs report might be a little, er delayed:
The U.S. Labor Department on Monday said it hasnt made a decision yet on whether to delay Fridays October jobs report, the final reading on the labor market before next weeks federal elections.
A Labor official said the agency will assess the schedule for all its data releases this week when the weather emergency is over.
Theyre not alone, either. The Census Bureau may hold off on its scheduled economic reports until next week. Construction spending was due on Thursday and probably wouldnt have had any impact on the election, but the report on factory orders was also scheduled for Friday, and that might have had an impact on the general opinion of the state of manufacturing.
Honestly, on the heels of the Benghazi coverup that would be even better than the actual #. Obamian is the new Nixonian.
Well, if they won’t release them, I will...
Unemployment is now at 12.2%
Men, Women, Children and Minorities hit hardest.
Just more DC corrupt liars who will be sent packing.
Has anything like this massive cover-up/firewall of multiple issues ever occurred before in an election year on the behalf of the incumbent?
“Failured to Release” will only be viewed by anyone except Brokenaxle as just another coverup of bad news for nobama.
Holder’s People won’t care, long as da obamaphone n da EBT core’ed be werkin.
Not in my lifetime that I recall, and I've been voting since 1968.
I see FR has slowed down to a snail's pace, along with "page not found" messages. There isn't a debate going on is there?
This won’t fly at all!
Another cover up!
The Market channels and Wall Street will go stark raving MAD!
No news is bad news.
I think everyone knows the meaning of this. The numbers are not good. We knew that without seeing the numbers. But to have it reported that (the numbers were so bad that) the Obama administration/re-election campaign is thinking of not reporting them until after the election can only mean they were worse than anyone thought.
More popcorn, please.
They already know what their decision will be:
If the numbers show significant positive improvement, the report will be released.
If the numbers show negative or no significant improvement, then the report will be withheld.
Benghazi had a negative effect on the Obama narrative for foreign relations, so, they’d rather nobody talk about it. If the economic indicators come out negative, then, the Obama administration would rather not talk about it, and not have the people know about them either.
The fear in the Obama administration can be felt all over the land.
Boom. They will use the storm to lie, cheat and steal the election any way they can. They have criminal minds; no ethics. Lying is second nature. The ends justifies the means.
This is another setup to get more people to pay attention to the Cooked Numbers coming out. I dont believe a Word that comes out of the Government this month
I believe they will delay them. They would have to report the CA numbers that were left off last time, making the number higher than normal.
My view is that the only number that could come out of this administration a week pre-election is an unbelievably positive one.
So if there’s no report, nothing gained for the Baraqqis.
Yes, but no-one knew about it before the internet. They hid the fact that FDR had polio for quite a while as I recall. We probably don't know the half of what has been hidden by the fifth estate over the decades.
We are all shocked, shocked I say!
They sure will.
