http://www.nbcnews.com/business/economywatch/... -
Voters will be getting their last glimpse of the crucial monthly jobs data from the federal government on Friday, three days before heading to the polls to choose who will occupy the White House for the next four years.
This so-called headline jobless rate, cited most frequently despite its limitations, is expected to edge up to 7.9 percent in October, after it dropped to 7.8 percent in September from 8.1 percent in August.
"The U.S. economy remains locked on an anemic growth path into the elections and fiscal cliff,” said Benjamin Engen, a market economist for Action Economics.
That could add fuel to Romney's assertions that Obama’s policies have held back hiring during one of the slowest economic recoveries in a half century.
The pace of growth hasn’t been strong enough to spark enough hiring to bring the jobless rate down to levels normally seen four years after the end of a recession.
The sluggish pace of hiring has also been blamed on increasing uncertainty by business managers about the state of the economy next year if the next Congress and White House proceed with a large package of tax increases and spending cuts. The so-called “fiscal cliff” was intended to force Congress to commit to reining in budget deficits. But most economists warn that, unless modified or postponed, the measure will almost certainly tip the economy back into recession next year.
...NBC News, mind you, reporting that unless Congress commits to reining in budget deficits, it "will almost certainly tip the economy back into recession next year."
Let's try and recall who rejected reining in budget deficits...
announced rate likely to be 7.5 % or less after books are cooked....

Wait a minute...did NBC News just say in that article I posted that most economists are warning that if Congress doesn't modify or postpone reining in budget deficits there will almost certainly be a recession next year?

What the heck? I just re-read it and have no idea now what they were saying.

But I'm too tired to deal with it tonight. Maybe someone else can figure it out and I'll read it later.

I think he just doesn't like you - but children and especially children who have served or are serving in the military are completely off limits.

No exceptions.

A strong Federal government able to aid the American People is needed. FEMA, Medicare, Social Security, pre existing conditions need to be Federal.

Storm hits the northeast, Lord Obama is all over it. Writing checks hard and fast. Rolling those sleeves up. Looking concerned and earnest every time a camera is pointed at him.

Is it too late to film a documentary on "Lord Obama, Storm Hero"?

Guess if you live in a key electoral state, there's nothing Lord Obama won't do for you.

And if you are screaming for help while a consulate burns down around you, you're on your own.
