The nation's unemployment rate fell to 7.8% in Sept. The first time it has fallen below 8% since Feb. 2009 & raising hopes that the pace of U.S. job creation is picking up.

The U.S. Dept. of Labor said today that total non-farm payroll employment increased by 114,000 in Sept, lowering unemployment 0.3% points from 8.1% in Aug. That brought the nmber of unemployed Americans down by 456,000 last mmonth to 12.1 million. From the files of (Money Watch).

Things are slowly getting better in this country.

That's the reason people don't want to go back to the bush years where we lost hundred of thousand of jobs evey month.

And the unemployment rate is still higher than when President Obama took office. One little knock of the economy, such as raising taxes or a big knock such as allowing Taxagedon to happen so we fall off the fiscal cliff and you can start calling us the United States of Greece

WRONG DEAD WRONG! When Obama took office January 2009 the unemployment rate was 7.8%. The cusp of the recession was in full swing, the United States was lsoing 750,000 jobs per month, the auto industry was in shambles, we were involved in two wars, Osama Bin Laden was still alive plotting terrorist threats around the world and idiots like you cant look past a race card because your too busy playing it.

The problem is not completely the Gov or president. The problem is generations upon generations of people ingraining the idea of entitlement into their children and raising them with the idea that you work the system and pop out as many kids as you can to get as much govt assistance as you can to keep from getting a job. It will not matter who is in office where, until the people themselves get off their butts and make a way for themselves instead of putting all their energy into trying to get a free ride.

JACK WELCH: Obama Is Manipulating The Jobs Numbers Because His Debate Performance Was Awful
Unbelievable jobs numbers…These Chicago guys will do anything. Can’t debate so change numbers.

Former GE CEO Jack Welch's reaction to non-farm payrolls adding 114,000 new jobs in September and the unemployment rate falling to 7.8 percent.

I think Jack Welch has it about right.

This morning's jobs report released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is being met with skepticism.

The report found that, from August to September, the unemployment rate dropped from just above 8 percent to 7.8 percent.

In fact, when Labor Secretary Hilda Solis appeared on CNBC this morning, the first two questions for her were whether the books have been cooked.

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former economics adviser to John McCain and the former head the Congressional Budget Office, calls the numbers "implausible."

"Sept. unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent due to an extraordinary – but implausible – estimate of 873,000 #jobs in household survey,” said Holtz-Eakin on Twitter.

“The report presented a slew of contradictory data points, with the total employment level soaring despite the low net number,” said CNBC's Jeff Cox.

The Washington Post's Neil Irwin adds, "Weird that payrolls are exactly on forecast but household survey is far better."

And the Wall Street Journal warns that these numbers should be taken "with a grain of salt."

This President has become a national embarrassment to all Americans, including the few honest democrats out there.

Comrade,
This smells a lot like sour grapes to me!

You Republicans have been praying the economy would tank before the election - so, Obama wouldn't be re-elected. I actually believe Republicans would rather go through what we did in the aftermath of 2008 again - as see Obama win the presidency.

This just shows how much real concern Republicans have for the well-being of this country!

Racism is such an ugly destructive force!!!

Alumni,

Must you too sink to using the race card? My God, I'm not a racist because I dislike President Obama's policies. Do you want to call Representative Alan West, an African American a racist for disagree with the president? How about Secretary of State Rice, she's African American and disagrees too. Is she a racist. It Herman Cane, another African American a racist for disagree with the president?

She has transformed herself into a full blooded Obama-Vampire-Nazi. She has emptied out a spare closet and hung Obama picture posters with FOREWORD! written underneath. Candles burn round the clock. The floor is littered with social security check receipts inside strange chalk markings on the hardwood floor...

She has sworn an oath to drink only red bull and take 12 shots of Geritol daily until Obama is re-elected. Keep her away from the grandkids! She's already voted once to sacrifice their future, she may just slide into the chop-chop mode if the election goes south.

Its "Forward" not "FOREWORD". Insults, name calling and stupidity. Thats your best defense of the acknowledgement of being embarrassed online. Its an opinion. Dont you have one or is life at home so dull this is all you have?

You imbicile! It is for my kids, grandkids & great-grand-kids' future security - that I'm fighting so hard to keep a Republican from taking control of our government again. Didn't we learn our lesson from the last Republican we had in office for 8 long years?

Yes, I'm fighting for my kids future - and I'M ALSO FIGHTING FOR YOUR FUTURE SECURITY!!! It's obvious you don't have enough sense to fight for it!!!

See, just like I've said before, when you get backed into a corner and proven wrong - you start with all this silly stuff like - full-blooded Obama vampire, Obama picture posters, candles burning round the clock & social securiy check receipts & strange chalk markings on the floor.(does anyone even receive social security checks anymore) I though every reciepient had it direct depoisited into their checking account. See, just how out-of-touch you are?

Want to make unemployment disappear? Congress needs to only give tax breaks to US manufacturers that do 90% of their manufacturing here! But congress wont because of the republicans voting down every tax law coming from the senate floor. They have but one agenda and that is to make Obama look bad. Im sick and tired of these hating GOP. They are the evil of lesser two.
