C'mon people, does anyone really believe that almost 900,000 jobs were created in September? We have been clicking along in a downward trend for months. The job creation rate has been around 130,000 for those months. This is just a flat out lie. This would be the equivalent of someone who runs five 40yrd dashes. The first 4, the average time was 5.7 seconds yet somehow, some way, the final time comes in at 4.2 seconds. Anyone who saw those times on paper and knew anything about sprinting would realize that the jump in time would be physically impossible. It's the same thing here with the jobs reports. The jobs market simply doesn't respond in that way. If it did this president's policies are the least qualified of any president in history to make it happen. I sure hope no one is gullible enough to actually believe these numbers. The Obama administration is simply lying. Heck, the Christmas season hasn't even hit yet.
If Obama tells Barney to believe it, he will, no one else will, but Barney will. If Obama was to get on to Topix he would say to Barney "I own you" and Barney would die happy.

DAMN BOY,,,,,, how many times do I have to tell you, THINK before you speak.
You lose what little credibility you had when you say a word about your intelligence, we think it is dandy that you have coworkers that type for you.

You're right, your lies and misrepresentations won't change anyone's mind...

Wait a second. You don't really take that to mean he wants to go back to slavery do you? Slavery, as horriffic as it was, ended up as a blessing to blacks in America. How could anyone possibly deny that? Had slavery not happened in America, had all of those countless African's brought to America not suffered and died, there would be no "African-American's" with the opportunity to live free in the greatest country in the world. Provided they don't fall into the welfare slavery trap. Had slavery not happened, every black person in America whose family came over from Africa as a slave would still be in Africa living in who knows what conditions. Blacks in America should be forever greatful to those who unwillingly gave so much that they may be free. Yes even free to post the type of crap you just posted. Your quote is political correctness at its purest. Political correctness is whats killing our freedoms and, if we fall as a nation, it will be one of the major factors.

What a pile of crap. When you have no facts on your side scream "racism". If you don't like the job our President is doing? racism. It sickening. If you really knew your history (which you don't) you would know it was the Republicans who freed the slaves. It was the Democrats who boo'd when Sammy David Jr. sang the National Anthem at the DNC. Before you throw up that racism BS look at the facts, this President is a disaster regardless of his race.

NO PROOF?

WTF do you call his book. OMG what a idiot.

Jon Hubbard, a Republican member of the Arkansas House of Representatives, has written a new book in which he says slavery was "a blessing" for African-Americans, among other questionable statements.

Hubbard, a first term Republican from Jonesboro, Ark., makes a series of racially charged statements in the self-published book, including saying that integration of schools is hurting white students, that African slaves had better lives under slavery than in Africa, that blacks are not contributing to society, and that a situation is developing the United States which is similar to that of Nazi Germany

I will say the Nazi Germany line is spot on. Charismatic leader lying to the public, slowly taking away rights and making a Nation dependent on the Government. Sound familier? and the unemployment number? let's face it folks, it's not opinion it's, what's the line the sheep cheered so loud for? it's MATH!

Yea and if rommey wins it will take a full 8 years to straight out the mess that obama has made of our wonderful country. It is one really big mess.
Why should Romney get 8 years to "fix" Obama's mess when Obama has only had 4 years to "fix" the mess he inherited? Double standard? Wishful thinking?

It WAS Republicans that freed the slaves, but that was a long time ago. Things change. It's been a while since Sammy Davis Jr. sang a damn thing. Maybe you should read a paper dated later than 1970, you know, before you throw up that republican tolerance bs.

Mitt is a looser? btw, someone who wasn't a "looser" might spell that loser. Mitt's 2nd shift Butler pays more in tips then your entire inbred family makes in 10 years. Millions of people want Mitt to be President. He has more money in his dryer lint trap then you'll make in your life. Who's the loser?

Obama claims to have grown up as a typical black in his books, you can't always believe what these authors with political aspirations write.

If the miniscule drop in the unemployment rate is President Obama's "October Surprise", then maybe Barney is the smartest Democrat on topix.
