    Spare us the BS. It is now time for temporary holiday hiring, and those are all low paid, temporary retail jobs, which will vanish in early January.

    It is convenient for the Democrats to try to snow us, that the jobs situation is improving, when in fact, the situation is going to go south, in January, and those of us who have half a brain, know that.

  6. Facts don't Lie

    and as we speak the far right and other RNC members are trying to figure out how to spin this to tell you it really is NOT as good as it looks....the books are cooked.....if the numbers are good then the president had NOTHING to do with it..just wait. I have never seen a group that claims they want more jobs for people but then get upset when it happens.

    Bad news for Republicans! The economy is picking up speed and we're recovering from Bush's recession – in spite of Republicans working hard to prevent progress. The last thing in the world America needs now is another Bush – like Romney.

  10. The Situation

    So if the unemployment rate is lowered tomorrow, all of Romney Surrogates and Rethugs are going to cry that Obama and his team cooked the books again!

    Don't worry Rethugs, after November 6, you will have 4 more years of whinning and crying about Obama cooking the books in his 2nd term!

    ROMNEY/RYAN 2012 if you really want hope and change that will better our nation rather than degrade it and everything we have stood for!

    More proof that as a nation we are on the right track, and should stay the course- especially as Mr. Romney has yet to say how he would accomplish anything different in real, concrete policy (well, beyond more tax cuts for the very rich).

  13. No crap

    You know, we could all fall in to a pot of gold and the haters would still be out in force saying "It isn't enough". This election is not all about the economy. We are recovering. Maybe not as fast we would like, but it is a recovery, none the less. We fell farther than at any other time in history, so I am happy and grateful for this President and the fact that we are on an upswing. I prefer a slow steady recovery as opposed to another bubble that won't be sustainable and will burst yet again.

    We all know the real reason the extreme right is so against this President and that makes me ashamed of my fellow countrymen that fall in to this category. I really thought we had finally evolved in to a nation of forward thinking.

    And before you start, my family is white, middle class (or at least we used to be) who lost jobs and homes during all of this. But we are all working to rebuild and are not blaming the "black man" in office for what has happened to us. I think if you look deep in your hearts, you all know what caused this mess. Obama/Biden 2012!

    Wow. Too bad it didn't happen about six months earlier, when it wouldn't have seemed as "well-timed." Oh well, that's the way it goes!

    The president and his administration dikd the right things. They are beginning to pay off. If we abandon the Jobs Act and the present direction now, and turn America around, we deserve what we get.

    That's Bad News ! Wait until tomorrow when the Govt. Stats come out for Mitt & Boehner to explain to Americans WHY it's bad.

    Well, Republicans hoped for bad news with the job reports. Turns out, they are getting better, and this mightve been the last hope for Mitt to gain any grounds on Obama. Let's hear them try to spin this into somehow being bad... Hey, what do ya know, Obama ISN'T destroying the country after all.
