Obama's Jobless Claims Data proven FALSE: Upward Unemployment Revision looming

By Dunstan Prial,
Peter Barnes
Published October 11, 2012

A sharp drop in the number of weekly jobless claims filed last week was caused by the failure of one large state to report all of its claims, a Labor Department spokesman confirmed to FOX Business.

Initial jobless claims, which are a measure of the number of people recently laid off, fell by 30,000 to a seasonally adjusted 339,000, the lowest level in more than four years.

But the Labor Department spokesman said the numbers were skewed by one large state that underreported its data. The spokesman declined to identify the state, but economists believe California is the only state large enough to have such a significant impact on the overall numbers.

According to the spokesman, the reason that state’s claims numbers fell short was because the state left out a pile of unprocessed claims related to seasonal factors around the beginning of the fourth quarter, which began Oct. 1.

In a research note, Stephen Stanley of Pierpont Securities summed up the data:“In short, this reading is worthless in terms of informing on the general economy.”

It marked the second time in a week that key employment data have come under scrutiny for being possibly more encouraging than it actually is. On Friday, the Labor Department’s September jobs report said the unemployment rate had fallen to 7.8% from 8.1% a month earlier.


Because one state left out a chunk of its weekly reports from last week, the jobless claims numbers will likely be revised upward in the coming week.


Stanley told MarketWatch it often benefits laid-off workers to “game the formula” by delaying filing for their unemployment claims.

“As a result, there is an accumulation of claims that are likely submitted over a period of several weeks but not processed until the turn of the quarter. Apparently, the state in question (and it pretty much has to be California to account for anything close to 30,000) forgot to include that stockpile of unprocessed claims in their tally for this week (which is the first week of a new calendar quarter),” Stanley said.

Biden has more experience as a debater than Ryan. That is meaningless. Biden has Obama's pathetic record to defend, and Ryan has the truth on his side. I'm expecting to see a rattled Biden lapse into gaffe mode.

One of the biggest doubters then of OBAMA was BIDEN.

The 3AM call thing did come up...BENGAZI!

All Vice Presidents are worth no more than a BUCK OF WARM SPIT.....They are just window dressing and gofers....And so it will be...its OBAMA VS ROMNEY..Its only they ,or one of them will be President

Biden is an old Political Whore...Around forever..A Clown...This new guy is young,smart,and is on his way to a long career also...Time The old dog Goes.

I wonder if any one wonders why BIDEN was never in uniform??....No Biden has no military service. He was rejected by the draft board for medical reasons...

Joe Biden dodged 5 draft attempts due to school, until 1968 when he suddenly came down with asthma...from high school....All thru the NAM years JOE was a DRAFT DOGER!

We have Politicians now who never served in the Military........Sen. John Mc Cain was rejected..a war Hero...What does that tell us......Tells me these guys need BASIC TRAINING...REALLY send the to BOOT CAMP..so when they send kids to die,they may be better informed ..FIRST HAND and not by Winps,Pencil neck Geeks,and other Sensitive lackeys!

Joe will come out swinging. He is an old hand, but once substance is introduced and he keeps saying liar liar pants on fire, the audience will begin to laugh and change channel.

Just like your boy Romney who dodged the draft by pretending to be on a Mormon "mission" in Paris to get out of serving his country.
Draft dodger.
Tax dodger.
Flip-flopper.

The guy is pure filth.

Ryan? Strictly a parasite. The only real job he's ever had was flipping a burger. If he's such a hero why wasn't he in Iraq?
He's just the right age for service. Another warmongering, chicken hawk Republican who isn't quite patriotic enough to back up his big mouth with service to his country.

It comes with the territory....Republican Territory. Yellow bellies. Like Bush.

I don't think any of this matters anymore. Obama can not be re-elected with Benghazi hanging around his neck. Many people will at the last moment say to themselves: "To heck with it. I'm not going to vote rather than vote for a guy that looks like a liar and a creep that helped kill an Ambassador then went to a party. Heck. I'm staying home and drinking a beer."
I think that is what's going to happen in droves..
