Agreed. I never said the announcement wasn't good news, but I'm just not ready to light the cigar and pretend we're back - for the very reasons you just listed, and those I listed previously. If the topix liberal goofball glee club wants to throw tantrums about that, good!<quoted text>
Don't you find it a bit odd that while the media is portraying the economy as all roses, rainbows and pretty white unicorns, the workforce participation rate really hasn't changed much and remains at the lowest point in decades? http://hotair.com/archives/2013/11/12/the-shr...
Those unemployment numbers that everyone is trumpeting as 'wonderful news', BTW, are based on those who are drawing unemployment. It doesn't take into account those who are underemployed (found a part time job) or have simply fallen off the unemployment rolls altogether.
In the end there's a good reason why we're talking about the "recovery" right now and it's not great improvements. It's all about taking the heat off Obamacare and giving Obama something to grasp on to as he plunges toward Bush-level approval ratings he's deservedly earning as he and the dems get their asses whipped by their own mismanaged business venture fiasco.
