    Employment is getting lot better., my work place is adding workers, hiring. Mith Does not know darn thing. Republicans are the one who shipped jobs, and Manufacturing. We need Manufacturing, and Agriculture, and cheap Alternate-Fuel, and Hybrid cars, We sustain this economy. Yes, Obama2012.

    I guess all the main stream media will need to backtrack for all that good news of 200,000+ jobs being added they were promoting last night.

    Okay. The actual number is just over 100,000 jobs in the month of march.

    The unemployment rate drops to 8.2% for one simple reason: the number of people not in the labor force is back to all time highs: 87,897,000.

    Things are improving -slowly, but improving after the disastrous train wreck Bush left us..

    It is getting ridiculous for Robot Romney to keep saying "He made it worse". The Republicans have exhausted their ammunition on all issues and destroyed any appeal with Women across the country big-time!

    They sound more pathetic every day that they show-up.
