The horrific September Jobs report was heavily doctored by the Obama Administration. Just like Benghazi.

"The preliminary estimate of the benchmark revision indicates an UPWARD adjustment to March 2012 Total nonfarm employment of 386,000 (0.3 percent)."
-----
The BLS also adjusted upwards the number of American Jobs for August and September

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.ht...

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised from +141,000 to +181,000, and the change for August was revised from +96,000 to +142,000.
----------
The BOTTOM LINE is that the BLS made revisions UPWARD amounting to 472,000 new jobs and that was what led to the drop in the Unemployment Rate.

And what makes the jobs report worse, from the same BLS source.

"The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) rose from 8.0 million in August to 8.6 million in September."

That is right 600,000 Americans went from full-time to part time work.

And Obama, after all this manipulation called the report a positive trend. What a liar.

It is because we respect the Ambassador, and those heros that we refuse to let them die in vain. They are heros, and the President is a coward. He will be judged by how he let them die when he could have saved them. When the coward comes forward, and speaks the truth (never) that we will say it is done!

More jobs info that beings into question the Septermber jobs report.
---------
"Revisions to the way payroll data firm ADP counts private sector job creation have resulted in a sharp drop in the September employment count."

"ADP's new calculations put the monthly job creation at just 88,200, down from the 162,000 the firm originally reported earlier this month."

What is tyoical is that democrats do not want to talk about Obama's dismal record, or his cowardice regarding Benghazi. It does not matter. We will discuss it until the Prersident comes out from under the bed, and tells the truth about the terrorist attack on the Consulate.

America is in trouble and it is the Titanic heading for a iceberg. No matter who's captain there's no changing course.
There are bad times ahead for the country and there's no one in government right now who will change this for the better.
bush hit the iceberg. The people are now scrambling to see if they can get in a life boat. No, the captain is not changing course. There is no way to change because the ship is going down, and nothing can stop it. Both major party candidates are corporate owned, and they just want to take the expensive flatware on the lifeboat, instead of the rabble. Just think how much money they will make.

You're so right... It took a lot of stamina to have elements capable of taking out a mortar nest, watch it painted with laser by an American, then withdraw the elements capable of protecting the consulate and the SEAL, knowing full well the SEAL had revealed his position and would soon die. THAT is really the kind of President I want!

It may be that Axelrod and the Mayor need something big and made of teflon to spin this election emergency.

IMHO Obama is the World's Foremost Uncle Tom so I find those charges laughable.

Some ACTUAL relevant information on the strange Unemployment Rate Drop Last Month.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics gave a preliminary annual estimate upwards of 386,000 jobs attached to March 2012
http://www.bls.gov/ces/cesprelbmk.htm
In accordance with usual practice, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is announcing the preliminary estimate of the upcoming annual benchmark revision to the establishment survey employment series. The final benchmark revision will be issued on February 1, 2013, with the publication of the January 2013 Employment Situation news release.
The preliminary estimate of the benchmark revision indicates an upward adjustment to March 2012 Total nonfarm employment of 386,000 (0.3 percent).

A double reply is in order here:

The "Jane Dough" handle is very clever.

Also, everbody knows that Obama is lying thru his teeth on Libya. But what is not known about Libya is the ethnic cleaning of black-Africans in Libya was committed by the NATO installed rebels. The MSM, of course, is in the tank for Obama, but here the untold story.
