Jobless rate tumbles to near four-year low

Oct 5, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.reuters.com

The unemployment rate unexpectedly dropped to 7.8 percent in September, reaching its lowest level since President Barack Obama took office and providing a boost to his re-election bid.

The Labor Department said on Friday that employers added 114,000 workers to their payrolls last month, a moderate number, but it said a combined 86,000 more jobs were created in the prior two months than it had previously thought. Other aspects of the report also were strong

The economy is better than it was 4 years ago, better than it was 3 years ago, better than it was 2 years ago, and better than it was last year.
A SLOW recovery is STILL better than NO recovery, or going backwards like things likely would under Romney.
obama had to add only one job to make it "better"

libs = set the bar low, revise downward.

True, ANY job growth would have been an improvement of what Shrub did to our economy.

5+ million jobs created over the past 30 months.

Not bad for a human.......

On these job numbers, you have to do more then add up the positives. Gotta subtract out the negatives. New weekly jobless claims -- pesky little numbers like that

So, how long will it take to get back to pre-reccession levels?

Unknown, but it'll be a hell of a lot longer if Romney is elected and we go back to LOSING 800,000+ jobs every month.

So, the President, and the Democrats lie about everything for 4 years, and they want us to believe a stagnant unemployment rate moved .3 of a point the month before the election. We might have been born in the morning, but it wasn't yesterday morning!!

Those are lame accomplishments because most were NOT BARACK'S WORK and the others are NOT EVEN TRUE.
Barack can't get Obamacare passed because it was mismanaged and chaotic.
In terms of real accomplishments though, he logged more hours at golf than at economic meetings and published beer recipes. He also did well giving out free phones as a trinket salesman, which is no great feat because I can use a credit card as well as any spender if I wanted.
I CAN HARDLY WAIT UNTIL THE ELECTION IS OVER SO WE DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH YOUR LAME SAD PATHETIC EXCUSES AND LIES ABOUT BARACK'S GRANDEUR.
I understand that Mrs. Obama, after counting eggs, is planning a special, even better Easter Egg Hunt on the White House Lawn.

Clinton Whitewater
Vince Foster killed the night before he was to TESTIFY AGAINST the Clinton's and his brief case with documented Proof was stolen

Clinton helped and was the Leader to oust the 2 men that kept peace in the Middle East with Israel

Clinton approved to give 2500 guns to the Islamic rebels during the Arab Spring that turned out to be Terrorists
Those guns are suspected to have been used in the Benghazi killing of 4 US Americans
The clinton's are as EVIL as Obama
Good at killing people
